Hi everyone,

I won an award!!

Hi folks,

Earlier today one of my images won an award in the “editing” category in Jimmy Cheng’s (Olympus Ambassador and thoroughly nice guy) “See the World” photography competition. I’m really chuffed as it’s the only thing that I’ve ever won in my life. What encourages me greatly is that Jimmy mentions in the Youtube live stream that “editing” in this context is transforming an image, something that is very important to me in my work. The work goes forward along with the other category winners, to the “Photographer of the Year” award to be announced next week. It’s fabulous exposure for my work and I never thought that I was in with a chance.

Kind regards

Leigh

Hi everyone,

I’ve been feeling a bit down these last few days which isn’t like me really. I suppose the lockdown is getting to me more than I thought. Not having anything new to work on I reworked this shot I took of Dapdune Wharf on the beautiful River Wey at Guildford.

“Midnight Rider”

Hi folks,

“Midnight Rider”. Green screen combined shot using E-M1 mk 1+M.Zuiko 30mm macro lens of an Elvis Presley knitted figure riding a wooden model motorbike. Helped me to pass a bit of time this morning as it’s raining and I’ve not got anywhere interesting to go.

Stay safe everyone, best wishes,

“Fading memories of a bright Summer’s day”

Hi everyone,

As I’m not able to go out I’ve started to look through some of my unpublished shots and found this one of the view from Lewes Castle, East Sussex to work on.
