A quick view of Camairish's recent activity.

  • Pairc Life II

    Brilliant feedback again - Pairc (also called South Lochs) is the region of south east Lewis where I photographed the house that this composite series is based on.

    Moira & Paul - some of these homes most likely were quite spartan regarding decoration, particularly in the Protestant northern islands, but I think you're right, still looks too 'staged'.

    I'm taking all the advice on board and will carry on working on the method.

  • A Simpler Life III

    Thanks Tanya - fantastic input again. I agree totally with the figure/feet comments - I've found the feet the hardest part to get right for some reason. As soon as I open the image the figure looks too sharp then my eyes accept it, I'll tinker with feathering his edges a little more and reducing his contrast.

    I've left the door closed because in the original it's hinged that way but the only doors I could find hinged the other way! I am planning to use the 'additional light' idea in the next set up though.

    Thanks Dougie - lovely to hear from you! I do have a big head (and my wife will agree) but it does look rather huge here now you come to mention it.. I'll try to shrink it a bit and revue the results.

    Thank you all for the valuable input.

    Thanks Tanya - you're a star. You're spot on - it is my first attempt at a composite image as part of a wee project. I made the room and 'furnished' it with miniature dolls house stuff. I wasn't happy with the look of this so I've since darkened the bloke (me!), added some more shadow and applied a slight blur to the back wall. I'll post that version this evening.
    Fully take on board the comments about things looking too clean/tidy - i'll work on that aspect in the next shot.
    Value your opinion,

  • Once Were Moles

    The reason the moles are hung on the fence like this is to inform the farmer how many the 'moler' has killed. He would be paid by the farmer per mole.

  • Admiring

    Well thought out and the planning has paid off. This is a wonderful image for multiple reasons - all of which you know!
    Well done, I would love to have taken this.

  • Buachaille Boulder...

    A fresh new take on one of my favourite hills, wonderful composition. Have looked through your recent shots and I really must get back out there in the winter wonderland that is our north west coast.
    Put the stone back now please......you're always doing this.
    Best regards Dougie,

  • Do it Dougie, buy the XPan! Just read your comment on one of Simon's pictures and I think in your hands the results would be stunning,
  • You have a style that deserves to be seen by many more - I'll echo the above comments and encourage you to try and get published - I would definitely buy your book!

  • Thoroughly enjoying the work of yourself and Louise, a great motivator for me and a reminder to get out there no matter what the weather.
  • Can't believe I've not spotted your work before - Patagonia, New Zealand, Bolivia - superb images that take me back to my travelling days. Keep posting them please!
  • In my short while with EPZ both you and Doug's photography has inspired me to keep getting out there with the camera and trying to capture our landscape as it is.
  • You have a great portfolio - close up, abstract & good old fashioned sweeping vistas, marvellous variety. I would love to see more XPan images, some of the ones you've posted have caught my eye,
