Photographer's Statement

Whilst our sensors are stimulated by our surroundings, the translation process is then distorted by the perpetual invasion of light and dark that governs our reasoning, it is this emotional depiction of reality that captures my interest, and with a little emphasised contrast, reducing what is but a reflection to a fairy tale.

The Bells! THE BELLS!
Bluebells in Scotland. photograph was taken with my Canon EOS 1000D and edited with Adobe’s Photoshop Lightroom 2.


Red Wine Splash
The captured splash of a drip of red wine. And not just the everyday ‘three for ten’ ASDA stuff either, but my favourite “Rioja's Marques Del Norte Reserva” photograph was taken with my Canon EOS 1000D with Micro lens and edited with Adobe’s Photoshop Lightroom 2.


Brin Uwt Ye Deid
Bluebells in Scotland, photograph was taken with my Canon EOS 1000D and edited with Adobe’s Photoshop Lightroom 2.


Personality
Trying to capture personality, and with something as personal as ‘personality’ being a complicated tale to express in a single picture, I’ve opted for the clone trick. The cloning was created using Micromark’s Fireworks and mood editing using Adobe’s Lightroom 3. The camera used was my Canon EOS 1000D.


Sharkie Jr
My pet shark colour popped using Micromedia Fireworks 8. Photograph was taken with my Canon EOS 1000D.. This was actually a little tricky as the shark moves fast and I had to capture him without the aid of a flash as the flash was reflecting of the fish tank glass.


Marmalade
My most successful colour pop! This is my cat Marmalade who is now 19 years old… Photograph was taken with my Canon EOS 1000D and edited with Adobe’s Photoshop. I would normally use Micromedia Fireworks for this kind of thing but decided on Photoshop to see what all the fuss was about.
