Tip of the week

Understanding your camera modes (DSLR or Compact camera)

The flower symbol stands for Close-up or Macro which means taking photographs of subjects really close. Use this mode to photograph close-ups of flowers, jewellery, insects, dew drops, abstract patterns, etc. In this mode the built-in flash may be disabled to prevent an overexposed image, as your camera is really close to the subject.

Editing on photos on mobile phones

I took a series of photos of the same subject, I later used my mobile phone's editing software to combine them into one photograph.

Each of the image below was adjusted on the phone individually to achieve the final desired result before combining them together into one framed photograph.


Each of the photographs below were photographed in colour later converted into black & white using the phones editing software.
Water front
 Wiltshire White Horse, the saturation of each image was increased slightly before combing the two photos in a frame.

The watermark was added using Lightroom.

The odd tree

I am always taking photographs, either using my Nikon, Fuji X-A1, Sony a6000 or my mobile phone.
The photo below has been taken with my BlackBerry Passport.

The photo has been edited using the phone's editing software, which I think is just amazing for minor adjustments like colour enhancement, black & white conversion or even toned photos. The photo was taken in colour before editing. Every other week I will post quick tips on editing images on mobile phones.

This is one of my favourite trees that I have photographed, it was just odd the way it was growing and colours in the surrounding was fantastic.

This image was photographed in colour, the saturation and the contrast was increased slightly to enhance the tones and colours around the tree.

Unfortunately the editing slider bars don't have an indicator, so it's really a case of what I like.
