Jamie White Photography: Blog https://www.jamiewhitephotography.co.uk/blog en-us (C) Jamie White Photography (Jamie White Photography) Mon, 16 Mar 2020 07:28:00 GMT Mon, 16 Mar 2020 07:28:00 GMT London Architecture https://www.jamiewhitephotography.co.uk/blog/2018/3/london-architecture A visit to London to photograph architecture turned out to be a really great day. The weather was overcast, but who wants bright sunshine all the time? 

Started off with a visit to Kings Cross to see the light tunnel that connects the station with St.Pancras station. A bit of editing later...

After that, I took the tube to visit the Premier Inn at Blackfriars. This building's quite unassuming from the outside, but features a superb spiral staircase that goes all the way to the top. This makes for a lovely shot. Be sure to ask permission before wandering around with your camera.

Next on my list of places to visit was the CitizenM hotel in Southwark. On the way, I walked over Blackfriar's bridge. Once on the south bank I noticed this particularly interesting building

10 minutes later, I was at the CitizenM and took a shot of this iconic staircase. Apparently, all CitizenM hotels have a spiral staircase in their lobbies. Must find the others at some point, because this one is beautiful

After a spot of lunch at Borough Market, it was off to Canary Wharf. First visit here and I wasn't disappointed at all. Lots to see architecturally, from the tube station itself, One Canada Square, the footbridge over Adam's place and the fantastic rooftop gardens at Crossrail Plaza

With aching feet, I slumped onto the DLR to Greenwich. time for another spiral staircase, this time at The Queen's House. The famous Tulip Staircase. I monkeyed around in Photoshop with this shot and found that mirroring it and blending together made a kind of surprised King Tut!

So, i'm at nearly 35,000 steps by this point. My poor old feet have had enough, but there is one more thing to see. Heal's furniture store on Tottenham Court road. This staircase is in my opinion, just beautiful. This image is taken from the bottom looking upwards. 

Next time, I'll be visiting Birmingham to take in the sights. See you soon

Richmond Park https://www.jamiewhitephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/10/richmond-park Just back from a great day's photography in Richmond Park, London. The deer are in full rut at this time of year, but there wasn't a great deal of rutting today. The light was great until about 9 am, so we made the most of it. Of course, we made a point of visiting the on-site cafe afterwards for a bacon roll and a hot cup of tea afterwards!

SleekLens Landscape Adventure PS Actions review https://www.jamiewhitephotography.co.uk/blog/2017/2/sleeklens-landscape-adventure-ps-actions-review Recently I was contacted by SleekLens.com and asked to review one of their products (in exchange for a copy of the actions for my own use). So, full disclaimer, I stand to gain nothing by either offering a good review or a bad review of these actions. Therefore this will be an open and honest review of what i've seen of them so far

After a fairly easy installation (if you're familiar with PS actions as I am), you are presented with a list of actions. These are split into 8 sections as below

This all seemed to be well laid out, starting section one with basic exposure alterations, then into base alterations (for colour adjustments) and then into tone. The section after that gives you the ability to apply a one stop shop quick application of "All in one" adjustments to your image (I assume if you're in a hurry). Section 6 offers some specialist effects, with a temperature adjustment and webfile prep actions in section 7 and 8 respectively.

I decided to try to process one of my images taken recently at a nearby lake to see what was on offer with these actions. I havent used all of the actions, rather a subject of them which I thought would be applicable to the image

Here is the original image

I started my processing in the "Exposure" group of the action set.

Firstly, I tried the "Reduce Highlights" action to take down some of the glare from the sun behind the trees, see below

Then, I brought back some detail in the shadows using the "Brighten Shadows" action, see below

The image was left without a great deal of contrast after this, so I gave that a boost using the contrast action :-

Having got to a stage where I felt the image's exposure was ok, I ventured into the "BASE" section. I ran the "Autumn Colors" action against it. Initially it was too strong, do I reduced the opacity to 20% to give the golds, browns and reds some pop:- 

I was quite pleased with this, so moved straight onto the TONE section and added a "Cinematic" tone. Again, the 100% opacity was too much, so again, I dialled it back down to 20%, see below :-

I read in the accompanying PDF file that there was a "Sunset Flare" action in the SPECIALTY section. This seemed like a good image to try this against, so ran it. It creates a new layer with the flare on. You can then resize the flare and place it where you wish. Shame about the spelling, there's a few of those through the action list which could be so easily mopped up with a bit of QA!

This image shows the flare enlarged, placed over the sun and the opacity dialled back to 50% :-

I also created a less opaque flare for the reflections in the water, see below

So, here are the before and after images using the SleekLens.com Landscape Adventure PS Actions


I'm a bit of a Lightroom fan if i'm perfectly honest and I do find PS actions a bit slow (and a little restrictive) for my workflow in general, but there are some solid actions in here if you are prepared to give them the time (and are perhaps more inclined to use PS for your editing). I will almost certainly come back to these actions again and give them another try.

Finally, I thought I would process my image quickly using Lightroom to see the difference. This took me approx 3 minutes from start to finish, but I freely admit this maybe as a result of my experience in Lightroom

Around Glencoe https://www.jamiewhitephotography.co.uk/blog/2016/9/around-glencoe On our way to Harris and Lewis, we stopped at some of the micro-lodges in Kinlochleven to get our heads down (it's a long journey from Bucks!). Making the most of things, we took a jaunt around Loch Leven, Loch Linnhe and Castle Stalker before retiring.

On the outskirts of Rannoch Moor we noticed a large boulder with a tree growing out of it. It made for a nice bit of interest in front of the hills beyond

The light around Loch Leven was beautiful

We travelled further south to Castle Stalker for an enjoyable sunset. I did like the way a lone sailboat was backlit by the setting sun

The next morning, we travelled along to Eilean Donan castle, arriving well before sunrise. This was taken before the sun came up. The water was so calm

North Norfolk https://www.jamiewhitephotography.co.uk/blog/2016/8/north-norfolk Just back from a trip to the North Norfolk coast. Again, I was very lucky with the weather, providing some lovely sunrises and sunsets through the week.

Cromer coastline. This was shot using an SLR with a near infrared conversion. 

Cromer Pier at sunrise. Such a lovely pier, best caught at sunrise if you don't want masses of people in your images

Happisburgh beach has the remains of sea defences which make for an interesting shot.

Northumberland https://www.jamiewhitephotography.co.uk/blog/2016/8/northumberland Just back from a beautiful week in Northumberland photographing some of the most beautiful coastline in the UK.

I visited the famous black stones that form the foreground of one of the most popular views of Dunstanburgh castle. The rocks are very difficult to navigate and deadly when wet. Because it's quite a way from anywhere, please take a phone or go with friends if you plan to visit!  

This is a view of the causeway to Lindisfarne at sunrise.

Once on Lindisfarne Island there are plenty of lovely boats to make nice foreground interest in your images. This one particularly caught my eye

One night, after sunset, I took a trip to Berwick upon Tweed as I wanted to capture this viaduct when it was lit up. I didn't feel particularly comfortable here on my own after dark, so made it quick. You drive through a housing estate to get to this viewpoint. I was wearing flipflops like a womble and had to get into the silt and mud of the river to get the angle as I wanted. I'm sure my feet were burning on the way home. Hope it wasn't chemicals! :)

Finally, no trip to Northumberland is complete without a shot of Bamburgh castle. Here you can see a new castle and the old castle in the same shot

Lightening tour around the Cotswolds https://www.jamiewhitephotography.co.uk/blog/2016/4/lightening-tour-around-the-cotswolds Up early (3:45 am!) for a trip around the Cotswolds today. Starting with the world famous Arlington Row in Bibury. Colin and I arrived about 5:30am. A slight mist on the river was nice, but a cloudless sky didnt bode well for a nice sunrise. Still, we persevered. I used a stop motion camera on a rotating head to capture me and Colin shooting. First time i've posted a video!

Arlington Row, Bibury

We then grabbed some breakfast at the excellent "Bakery on the Water" in Bourton on the Water.

After that, we toured around, stopping off at Lower Slaughter, and then to a number of picturesque fields. By this time, the skies were doing some lovely things. Big puffy clouds billowing around. I broke out the IR converted camera and had some real fun. Here are a few of the shots from the day

Landscape Workshop with Colin Mill https://www.jamiewhitephotography.co.uk/blog/2016/3/landscape-workshop-with-colin-mill Easter Sunday, we planned to stay local and shoot a sunrise at one of the many lakes in Milton Keynes. However, a full on case of MAN FLU prevented my attendance at sunrise, but I did manage to get along to Lodge Lake near Great Holm for an hour or so. The light was varied and I took this as little more than "keeping my hand in", to keep my photographic head on.

I did manage to get a shot of the weir (?) with a long exposure. I used a two stop ND grad in combination with a Lee little stopper for a 20s exposure at f6.3

A tour around the Peak District National Park https://www.jamiewhitephotography.co.uk/blog/2014/2/a-tour-around-the-peak-district-national-park Had a great time today, touring the Peak District National Park with Colin Mill. Visited Mam Tor to start with, for sunrise. Was an early start, getting up and 4am and zooming up the M1, but was worth it. The mile or so walk from the car was muddy and very windy, nearly lost me hat on several occasions!

Anyway, the top of Mam Tor didnt disappoint!

After this, we got back to the car, freezing cold. Threw lashings of hot tea down our necks and headed for lunch at a local american diner. Obviously, the large brunch burger was called for.

After that, we headed for Hathersage for a pint at the Millstone Inn. There's a nice little waterfall nearby, with a view along the valley too

Finally, after watching Colin fall asleep in the pub (bless him, all tuckered out after a pint and a meal) we headed onto Curbar Edge for some sunset action

Clifton Suspension Bridge dawn https://www.jamiewhitephotography.co.uk/blog/2014/2/clifton-suspension-bridge-dawn Visiting Josh this weekend, catching up was great. Josh is getting into photography and is showing some serious promise. We headed up to the Clifton Suspension Bridge, pre-dawn. Freezing bloody cold it was and threatening to rain all the time. The sun rose, Josh concentrating on a really hazy sun coming through some clouds. I was keen to get the bridge (as it's one of my fave landmarks). The sky was pretty weak at first, but as the sun rose, a raincloud came in from the right, lit right up in the sun's orange glow and gave everything an orange tint. Very nice it was.

Plenty of other togs around, all eager to get some. Really nice morning. Went and had a slap-up fried English at his with all the family. These shots were the icing on the cake! :)

A pleasant stay in the Peak district https://www.jamiewhitephotography.co.uk/blog/2014/1/a-pleasant-stay-in-the-peak-district Spent a week up in Cheshire visiting with some family. Spent lots of chilly mornings our before dawn, supping on McDonalds coffee, wandering up and down some very large hills, wandering lost through some pretty dark forests before the sun came up. Still, all worthwhile. Being there being it's own reward and all that. Certainly was pleased to get back inside after making these images. One of my first forays with the new 6d. Enjoying the GPS, makes life easy!

Fully intend revisiting this area when there's some snow on the mountains. Found the wonderful Clachaig Inn superb, would happily live there, the whiskeys, the fine ale and the superb food coupled with the scenery make for a wonderful place.

Grand Union Canal Walk https://www.jamiewhitephotography.co.uk/blog/2014/1/grand-union-canal-walk A lovely clear day and a 2km walk from the Three Locks near Stoke Hammond along to the Globe Inn and back again. I was pleased with what I found, some really nice scenes.

There were sweeping turns in the canal, old stone bridges and several well placed barges. I used a 100mm f2.8 macro exclusively on this journey in an effort to get to know it better. The larger panoramic shots are stitched together from several images if you're interested!

A nice walk was interrupted by the appearance of the Globe Inn, which looked sad and lonely. I felt for it, and popped in for a pint of beer.

Here are a couple of images from the walk. Others photos from the day can be seen in this gallery

Trip to the Peaks https://www.jamiewhitephotography.co.uk/blog/2013/1/trip-to-the-peaks Went on a tour of the Peak district today with some friends, Colin, Darren and Paula. We started off on a very murky and cold Stanage Edge. A dusting of snow here and there kept us all chilly. The murk didn't clear, but at times added quite a dark and moody feel to the awesome landscapes in this area.

I started it off with a panorama of the whole vista

Out to Braville, just outside of Milton Keynes to catch the sunrise over the ruined church.

The sunrise was spectacular today, I really didn't have to do much except point, and shoot!!

Another photographer looked on from the top of one of the smaller mounds, surrounded by the opaque white, probably having little luck.

I started heading up towards the spine of Ivinghoe along the footpath and the higher I got, the clearer things became. Eventually, nearer the top I lifted out and almost had inverted clouds! (I wish). Anyway, once Mr Sun made an appearance I managed to get this. hope you like it!






Once the sun was fully up, the mist started to burn away
and left this golden view of the trees across the valley.


Finally, I rewarded myself with a slap-up Brownlow Breakfast from the Brownlow
