seeing the light…….

This picture is as clear an illustration of the nature of digital photography as you’re likely to see. The digital photography to which I’m referring is not the one whose algorithms quickly produce the pleasing image that you see on your phone but that which deals with shooting RAW images and then taking that information, as one would in cooking with raw ingredients, and metamorphosing them into something new and wonderful. The ratatouille that I’m going to make from these ingredients will only be as good as the intuition, ability and skill at cooking that I bring to them and, hopefully, will make a dish that no instant packet food could ever replicate. Much of good cooking, as with photography, is the result of experience: of trial and error: and of the occasional Eureka moment that we all wish would happen on a more regular basis. There’s looking ….and then there’s seeing….I’ll be showing you the difference on my Photography Workshop* that we’ll be running in France at the beginning of October this year. I should mention that I’ll be only too happy to help you with your phone photography….they’ll be time for everything

We’ll be staying in a lovely house, with a pool, in the Mervent Forest and overlooking the lovey river Mere which sweeps through it. Plenty of time for walks and visits to bars and restaurants…..we’ll also be eating and drinking very well back at the ranch.
