Topaz Labs discount code shout out

Discount code shout out ….I can proudly say Ive been approved for a new collaboration with Topaz Labs. Its a product I’ve used the past 4 years within my Adobe Photoshop workflow. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Topaz Labs its a software plugin for post processing & in my opinion one of the best, certainly my “go- to” when the going gets tough, its saved me countless times. I’ll be doing some test reviews in April showing before & after edits but for now here’s a 15% discount code for all you lovelies on any of the Topaz plug ins. All you have to do is type CAMERON15 (coupon code) at checkout. Have fun.

Haida Picture Appreciation – January 2020

Haida Picture Appreciation

On arrival the light was bouncing all over the place, it had been one of those typical Scottish days where you get all four seasons in one day, this can prove to be very successful for landscape photography as it seems to bring the purest of light, what I call “sparkling- light”. However, this can bring difficulties with light management -You need to be in control of the light, not the light controlling the image. To do this I used a Haida M10 CPL which is my go to filter to control highlights and Haida Red Diamond Medium 0.9 ( 3stops) which produced some real magic. The Callanish stones no matter how many times I visit never fail to make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, there’s something very spooky but quietly spiritual about it, makes you think about the history which dates back to the stone age over 5000 years ago. The sky didn’t pop as much as I hoped due to the time of year and day time temperatures. I stayed till dusk watching the sun dip below the horizon, all very peaceful at such an iconic location.
