In recent years I've simplified my photography, not least of all in how I process photographs I make. In the past I shot RAW with a DSLR and processed using custom presets in LightRoom. This became too time consuming and complex, and I evolved to using Hipstamatic, with an iPhone and iPad. The Hipstamatic approach… Continue reading How To Post Process Your Photographs Before You Even Release The Shutter
Previously I've spoken with considerable enthusiasm about Snapseed and how I use it to process photographs, especially in black and white (b/w).

Snapseed is an absolute… Continue reading Why I’ve Stopped Using Snapseed To Process Photographs

I'd grown tired of the overwhelming complexity and cluttered interface of LightRoom, and although I do like a lot of what it does, for me it's like using, not so much a sledgehammer, but an entire demolition squad with wrecking balls and explosives,… Continue reading LightRoom’s Last Hurrah – Why Adobe Has Lost My Trust And Business

Regular readers will… Continue reading Why Photograph In Colour?

I have a fairly minimal and effective workflow using LightRoom, but still don't particularly enjoy it. So I've started exploring… Continue reading Adventures In Zero Processing – Hipstamatic + iPad
