I have been playing around with a 'Field Studio' setup, as described by Niall Benvie, a Scotttish wildlife photographer.

I was able to quickly obtain interesting results, and have started to document my experiences here.

February 2020

The site is now live.

The Balbooa gallery component has gone, as I couldn't get it to display the images as I wanted - I really don't like the lightbox style presentations used by this and other gallery components.

The site now uses Juicebox galleries, which, after some fiddling, I have set up with a presentation that I like. Although not a Joomla component, the JB galleries can be easily embedded in Joomla articles, and generally work well. There is also a Lightroom plugin available, enabling galleries to be created directly from within Lightroom, which is convenient.

I have finally got round to updating this site with a more modern, properly responsive design, although I have kept some of the original colours and  typography, as I like them!

The new version has been built using the Joomla CMS, currently at v3.9, and I have used the detault Protostar template. At the moment, I am using the free version of  BAGallery by Balbooa for the gallery pages, but I will probably upgrade to the Pro version shortly, to get more flexible display options.
