A big welcome to you all and especially my new subscribers, there will be a newsletter coming out very soon so keep your eyes on your email 'inbox'.
I have started to get out and about again with my camera, although summer isn't the best of seasons for landscape photography it does present some opportunities for great images to those willing to endure early starts and late nights. Also the milky way is prominent in the night sky and should you be able to find some dark, clear skies away from light pollution you should be able incorporate it into some of your images. Below is an image I made last year of the milky way over Devil's Bridge at Kirkby Lonsdale - ISO: 3200, 14mm, f2.8 - 30 seconds. I light painted the bridge with a torch for around 12 seconds of the exposure time to make it stand out from the background.
In this months 'featured image' I am going to discuss how I made this image taken at Porth Nanven, Cornwall.
When 'out in the field' I always try and imagine how I want my finished image to look before I make my exposure, doing this helps me decide what camera settings will get me the closest RAW capture to enable me to achieve my goal.
