Warmth of the Bay
We've had some gorgeous weather around the area recently, so I used it as an opportunity to do a photowalk around the Cardiff Bay area and get some new lovely shots (bearing in mind it's been a few months since I've gone out to do photography for fun...)
While I have to admit I may have done a little bit of manipulation here with the colours, I'm quite happy with the way this turned out! I wanted to create a warm atmosphere (almost as if it was close to sunset), so I'm pleased it doesn't look too manipulated (although it could look better...)

Please feel free to comment below! Any critiques would be appreciated :)

Fading Beauty
During my trip to the #ukphotoshow (The Photography Show) in Birmingham in March, there were a few random photo spots around the event to have a go at shooting some items. I decided to try some close-up shots with some of the props, including this one, and try something new with editing in Adobe Lightroom CC. In this case, I simply decreased the saturation & vibrancy, and used the brush tool over the flower petals and increased the temperature, saturation and vibrancy to try and counteract the original changes. While it's a fairly dark piece, I quite like how it turned out! Definitely need to try out some more artistic editing like this in the future.

Feel free to comment! All critiques are appreciated :)

Attended the Photography Show in Birmingham today, and got to attend a few useful seminars as well as pick up some interesting literature to read - got so many books & magazines to read...

Also really happy that I'll be attending again on Tuesday to view some more seminars (if anyone is attending then, let me know - would be nice to meet up with a fellow DA photographer). It's been a while since I've been this ethusiastic about photography...
Lurking/Anxiety
When I was originally trying to create this shot, the concept I had was to create something that was generally moody. The idea was simple. Just stand in front of the camera as if looking into something unknown...

During the editing process, I couldn't help but feel as if the colour scheme shouted "DANGER" - and that's when I couldn't help but think that this kinda worked as a metaphor for how my anxiety and depression can feel at times. Sure, it could be a LOT more well constructed (I mean this was a shot done without much thought at the end of the day...), but I'm actually kinda happy with the way it's turned out.
