Wilderness and the Mind of the Photographer

This article is written in response to that by Julian Barkway on Beauty, which had a wilderness connection, and as a result of Joe Cornish’s report from the great wilderness trek in NW Scotland. His book Scotland’s Mountains could be regarded as a homage to what remains of Scotland’s wilderness areas. Torridon, Cairngorm, Glencoe, Rannoch Moor, Assynt, and the black Cuillin are all there, in their vastness and enticing more

Joe Wright

Dav Thomas sent me an email recently saying to take a look at Joe Wright's photographs as he saw something interesting going on. After looking myself I had to agree and so called Joe for a chat. He's only been taking photography seriously for about four years but there has been a major change in his outlook over the last year which caught both of our eyes.

In this issue I’d like to talk a little about taking photographs in woodland, of trees more

Introduction to Black and White photography

  I’ve been asked by a couple of people to write some notes about black and white conversions and although I may not be the expert in this area, I thought it would be a good one to tackle and hopefully get some feedback from some people with more experience than me. 1) What to photograph 2) Preparing the file for conversion 3) Converting the colour file to black and white 4) Post processing Most articles and books I have read have spent the most more

Joe Rainbow

We recently took a look at a fantastic photograph by Joe Rainbow of Gunwalloe Scales and asked Joe Cornish to critique it and also asked him how he would approach the post processing of it. The results, whilst not far from Joe Rainbow's version, show some interesting aspects of technique and style. The original picture is shown below. You can see more of Joe more
