People like trees.

Hi everyone, according to Flickr my most popular four works, all of them with trees in them.Β  No coincidence that they were all Explored on Flickr. Okay, I can take a hint and fortunately I live near plenty of trees!. πŸ™‚ . You’ll find all my Explored on Flickr works on this page.

Lens changer + reporter/backpack straps combo.

Hi everyone,

This works well, lens changer thingy plus my Op/Tech reporter/backpack straps attached to my Op/Tech camera strap and system connectors. They could be lengthened and adjusted as a matter of preference so that the camera is at the top and the lens is lower down if required as the system connectors fittings are interchangeable.

On further experimentation I have decided that, for me, it works better with the camera at the top, attached to the reporter straps and the lens changer below it attached to the camera strap but hey if I change my mind I can easily change them around. πŸ™‚

“A tad spooky”

Hi everyone,

A building and trees that I passed on my travels and, unless in the unlikely event that I’m lucky enough to visit icy wastes or a barren desert, then I see lots of tress and buildings on my travels πŸ™‚

Oh, by the way, I removed an eyesore danger of electrocution warning sign from this image so be careful if you go there! πŸ™‚

I joined Alamy Stock Photos and Images

Hi folks,

I joined Alamy Stock Photos and Images. I upload three images which have passed their quality control. I have a portfolio page there which is work in progress – https://www.alamy.com/portfolio/leighkempΒ .There’s not much to see at the moment as I can’t figure out how to get my uploads to appear on the portfolio page πŸ™‚ .

I’m not publicising it widely as I’m going to leave it at just the three shots for time being until I get a feel for the site and whether it looks like it’ll be worth it. My gut feeling is that it’ll be another of those sites where one’s work disappears like a drop in the ocean but one’s got to try new things.

Kind regards

This software is absolutely insane!

Hi everyone,

I just discovered A.I Gigapixel by Topaz Labs.

Below a small size 640×512 pixel preview image, click on it for a 400% resize of the original image (17,280×13,824 pixels). It’s a big file and is slow to display so best not attempted on a slow internet connection, once loaded click on the magnifying glass to display at full resolution. The software will go up to 600% enlargement if desired. Amazing technology!.

Brussels – the unpublished works

Hi everyone,

I often take shots that I never do anything with of things that catch my eye and/or appeal to my sense of humour when I’m walking around on my travels. I thought I’d share with you some such shots of Brussels that have previously never seen the light of day, until now that is. πŸ™‚

A new aspect

Hi everyone,

Lately I’ve been gearing up, literally and metaphorically for my next trip which I’m pretty excited about as it’s somewhere that I’ve been dying to visit for quite a while, but more of that at a later date. I’ve been experimenting a lot with some new techniques and ideas and, amongst other thing I’ve been re-experimenting with HDR.

For my next trip I’m anticipating shooting more HDR and I’ve also recently taken a liking to the 5×4 aspect ratio which seems more visually appealing to me. Below a re-worked work of Dapdune Wharf on the River Wey in 5×4.
