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.

Thanks, Conor….we’re getting a nice bit of light at the moment..
My kind of light and shadow!
So nice to take pictures in summer light…..
Looks very beautiful I will definitely look at the photography so I can do better thanks for sharing and can you critique my blog on my photo and my writing I would greatly appreciate it!!! Much success my friend Sincerely, Richelle
Thanks for your comment and I’ll definitely have a look at your blog.
I really appreciate that!! I need all the help I can get
I think you’re doing extremely well…keep at it. However, the photography doesn’t make the food look very good and, if I were you, I would look at a few other sites and have a rethink….and the pace of your commentaries could do with a little more pace and change of tone. Not an easy challenge…go for it.
Beautiful as always.
Beautiful natural light, I enjoyed your image.
Thanks, Cornelia… hope you’re having a good summer
Absolutely I will do I have taken action on. Help through a company that’s going to polish it up!!! Thanks for your honest feedback!!
