Last Paddler by PaulZizkaPhoto

Extending the Canadian paddling season in style – under the aurora. An absolutely perfect night in the mountains: a touch of moonlight, the mountains dressed up in white, “warm” temperatures and the northern lights dancing above!

Night Blaze by PaulZizkaPhoto

A wonderful celestial show last night here in Banff National Park, with Procyon and Orion rising over Mount Rundle and a Geminid meteor ripping across the sky above the iconic peak.
The meteors kept showing up outside (or on the edge of) the frame, or they weren’t bright enough to show in a 6-second exposure. Finally one showed up in the right spot!

It’s probably fair to say processing is the big hot topic these days. It’s the biggest learning curve for people wanting to improve their images.

Yesterday I presented a Webinar for Topaz Labs attended by 1000 people. It is now available online to view:

Dynamic & Expressive Processing in Minutes

I also have a 25% discount code available until the 13th September.

No Longer Alone by AlisterBenn

The secret of becoming a better photographer relies on a plan – a strategy to improve and develop.

“If you don’t know where you’re going, don’t complain about the destination!”

I write educational material for creative and expressive photographers. We run small group Photo Tours & Workshops locally here in NW Scotland and in Iceland.
