Welcome to my site.

I have created this site to showcase some of my photographs, and inside you will find some galleries of recent images. I intend to add some technical details about the equipment and methods used to take them real soon now!. There will also some details of the tools and techniques used to create this web site, and anything else that I've thought to be interesting or useful. If you like the site and the contents, or have any comments at all, please contact me using the Contact page, and let me know how I can improve it.

The site is currently under development - content will change frequently, and may disappear with no warning!

 

The old site is still on this server, and you can access it here.

April 2020

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.

I am a year old retired male, living in North Devon with my wife, Maggie. I have been an active amateur photographer since my early teens, and Devon is a wonderful place to pursue this hobby.

Maggie is a keen gardener, and we visit as many of the wonderful gardens in thia part of the country as we can. Of course, I always take a camera, and so much of my photography is of gardens, flowers and plants.

For many years, I have also had a strong interest in computers and software, and now all my photography is done in the 'digital darkroom'.

My wife, Maggie, is a keen gardener, and as well as our own garden, we frequently visit gardens around the country. Because of this, and because I enjoy doing it, I take many photographs of plants and flowers.

I was therefore intrigued by an article in the March/April 2020 issue of Camercraft magazine that featured a portfolio of the work of Scottish photographer Niall Benvie, using his Field Studio setup, and decided to have a go at the technique myself.
