Spring At It's Best
The English Spring provides a veritable smorgasbord of weather and it certainly revealed how remarkably changeable it is for me yesterday! Warm in sheltered and breeze-free areas, moving swiftly to freezing cold out in the open; sun, wind, rain, sleet and snow and all in one day! But even so, it was still a great day to go out and do Spring photography. What ever the weather, rain or shine, snow or sleet, the English Spring is a stunning time of year, so why not check out our Spring retreat here for 2017.
All my images are straight out of the camera, mostly shot using a very shallow depth-of-field and taken in either aperture-priority or manual modes to give me full control over the subject. Nothing fancy in Photoshop however, just plain and simple tweak to levels and curves, a little colour saturation modification for richness, sharpening adjustments to cater to the vagaries of shooting RAW and voila!

Go out with that camera now, or at least before our wonderful Spring flowers and the glorious iridescent, infant-green of the newly grown buds has disappeared and if you try some of the techniques above, let us know how you get on, we'd love to see your shots.
Spring. It simply is my favourite time of year.
Be inspired to take shots like those below, all shot yesterday in a couple of hours.
