Professional Photography – Retouching – Web Design – Consultancy

The site contains lots of information about our Professional Photography, Retouching, Web Design and Consultancy services. It also has many professional and personal photography folios, as well as many images highlighting my retouching.

There are also extensive articles, packed with technical and creative ideas. These are updated regularly.

The site is fully responsive, and will function on desktop, tablet and mobile devices, however, there’s no doubt that the images look better when displayed larger, and my preference is to always view on a desktop device where possible.

With the rise of social media, and especially photographers’ groups on Facebook, many aspiring photographers send me messages and emails asking for advice. I often write articles that try to assist up and coming photographers, in an attempt to pass on some of the knowledge that has been hard fought for, or gifted to me, over the last 40 years.

I will be constantly updating the site with useful information.

If you have any comments or questions you can contact me here. – Colin

They’ll be more images shot by us, as we further our collaboration in the spring, when the weather improves, here in the UK.

Fast Lenses: Why are lenses sometimes described as “fast?”

Fast Lenses: Why are lenses sometimes described as “fast?”

What makes a lens a “fast” lens?

This term is often used and can be confusing to new photographers. It’s important to bear in mind that this is an old term and has been in use for many years, specifically, before the digital photography and electronic camera age.
In photography terms like this are often used inappropriatedly, by mistake, or, simply overlapped with similar terms.
In the context of this subject I will give a quick overview of what it actually means.
Remember: When referring to fast lenses, photographers (including myself) use terms like “wide aperture” or “larger aperture”, meaning the same thing. So, in this context “wide or wider”, refers to the aperture, not the focal length of the lens.

My Mask

My Mask

This is my mask. There are many like it, but this one is mine…
Well actually this one was mine… I’ve now retired this trusted friend.
I thought it’s mark it’s passing with a portrait so that, hopefully, in the future I can view the image, and use it as a reminder of this extraordinary time.
