I've had a bit of time in the last week or so to post process some recent pics and have taken a darker twist to them - this may be to compensate for the fact that most of the images were of pretty flowers. Just for a while Photoshop started to feel easier, almost intuitive - that's a new feeling for me. I hope I'm starting to think the adobe way as prior to this it seemed quite hard to learn anything new on it.

Also I got some good advvice from Paul Morgan here and got a new flash modifier which so far seems very good - the Large flash bender.
I used it for the first time on Ken Kaminesky for an article i wrote about him here for ephotozine, I really like the result it gave.

So feeling buoyant enough to think that perhaps i need an actual website to try and at least follow some of the photography site hints I've seen in the last few months.

I'm hoping for more time toward the end of the month as then i can learn some more.

Thanks for reading, all and any comments welcome...

Kind regards
