Over recent weeks I’ve showcased photographs that had been heavily reworked using Photoshop. On this occasion, things are a bit different. Pictured here emerging from the mist is The Shard in London. I’ve photographed The Shard many times, but I think this is the most dramatic image I have taken of this famous London landmark.
Over the past week, I have spent a massive amount of time using Photoshop. I’ve been doing all sorts of crazy things using the software, often late into the night. This edited image of the City of London, inspired by the film Inception, was great fun to produce.
The arrival of daffodils has to be the ultimate sign spring has arrived and I have been passing them in large numbers every day while on the school run. I had a few different ideas for photographing them but thought the close grouping of these flowers would give the chance to hone an editing skill that has long alluded me: Changing an object’s colour!
This week has been all about photography. In addition to attending the Bedrooms Of London photography exhibition, I spent a day in Brighton with Darren Coleshill of the Photalife blog. Together we strolled around the Marina, sea font and city centre with our cameras. It was during our time together I took this image of what remains of Brighton’s iconic West Pier, which was destroyed by fire in 2003.
