A WEEK IN THE DOLOMITES IN WINTER

A WEEK IN THE DOLOMITES IN WINTER

I love the Dolomites. The jagged spires and peaks are my favourite landscape to photograph and every time I’m back there I find new inspiration. Photographing these same mountains blanketed in winter snow was something I’d wanted to do for a long time

MOUNTAIN PHOTOGRAPHY - CAPTURE TO EDITING

MOUNTAIN PHOTOGRAPHY - CAPTURE TO EDITING

Last month I spent a week or so in the snowy Dolomites mountains and put together this video about shooting an image from capturing the scene to my complete image editing workflow. We weren’t that lucky with the conditions, either having too much wind and driving snow, or completely clear skies with no drama, but landscape photography is usually about taking the scene as you find it and working out how best to shoot and edit a scene to fit the mood of a place.

DJI MAVIC 2 PRO - BEST CAMERA SETTINGS & REVIEW

I’ve been using the Mavic 2 Pro for a couple of months now and it’s a big improvement over the original Mavic Pro, so here’s a brief review and  a look at the settings I’ve found which can really get the most out of the sensor.

THE DOLOMITES PART 1:  CRODA DA LAGO TO SECEDA

Back in the autumn I spent a couple of weeks travelling in the Italian Dolomites, some of the most beautiful mountains in Europe. I’d planned the trip at this time of year as late September/early October is when the trees are starting to turn golden and when the tourist season has passed leaving the trails and many of the more popular locations empty.

FUJIFILM X-T20 - A PRACTICAL COMPARISON WITH THE X-T2

FUJIFILM X-T20 - A PRACTICAL COMPARISON WITH THE X-T2

My first Fuji camera back in 2015 was the X-T10 which I bought at the time with the intention of using as a back up camera to my Nikon D800E. I was immediately impressed with what a pleasure it was to use and how good the image quality was. It also struck me that it was laudable of Fuji to give exactly the same sensor and image quality from their flagship cameras to a lower end model.
