Picture of the Week (48/2011) is here

Sorry this time I’m a little late with this announcement but its time again, I have a remarkable picture to present: a picture that tells a story and shows that a photograph doesn’t have to be technically perfect in terms of sharpness and composition to be appealing to the viewer’s eye… “Christmas Shopping” by Johanna...

Stormy Street Workshop-Success!

Cologne, 3.December 2011: Cold, rain, Gales not the best conditions for a Street workshop you would think. And then: 50 photographers got together against all odds to look for interesting subjects and take part in a Street workshop with me.

First Picture of the Week is chosen!

My picture for the week 46/2011 is the black and white of the beach scene. I’ve made it my number one because of the subtle use of black and white processing, positioning ( it draws your eye to the horizon allowing you to find newer subjects within the image) and the overall atmosphere. Once again thank you for all the entries – it just shows that the so...

You Can’t Make A Silk Purse Out Of A Sows Ear

There’s a rumour going about that I am somehow telling everybody not to use Photoshop, this is of course completely untrue. I’m just worried that software is seen as more important than the photography itself. My colleagues and I use Photoshop in our professional lives everyday, on campaign and print images for the advertising industry. Photoshop for me replaces what...

Back To The Future Before Digital

CLARIFICATION: I’ve just read yet another article and blog where someone has written that a photographic process has been invented by them, so in their opinion they should give it their name. Don’t these people realise that this is nothing  new and has been going on since photography began. I myself was using these processes when they were still going to...

Berlin’s calling

Last saturday I did a quick stop in Berlin at Gravis to talk about my favorite Photoshop tools as Nik filters and of course my Wacom tablett. Being used to shop presentations I expected probably 15 people to listen to my little show.

Painters in Crime

Last week has been really busy. I was in Hannover to meet some specialists from the LKA (which reads Landeskriminalamt and is the state criminal investigation department of Niedersachsen, one of Germany’s federal states). From our usual crime thriller we know how police work is done: some DCI questions a witness and then a very huge and clever computer compares a few...
