Sorry it's been a few days since my last post. But I have been distracted. I do have some good photos to show for it though. Or at least I will do once I have edited them. I am currently trying to get to grips with Adobe Lightroom 3. The work flow is going to be easier I think using this. That is its primary function. As with anything though, it is not perfect, so I won't be ditching Photoshop any-time soon. Here are a couple of images I have edited with Lightroom 3. Wanderings around Aucklan...

A Colourful Garden

Finding interesting rusty objects isn't very difficult. Here is some images from my garden. The colours that form through oxidisation always amaze me, deep reds, vibrant oranges, smoky yellows and rich brown tones. All make for some very colourful images. Don't forget to check out the galleries for more images.

Stormy Friday

Posted by richard shaw on Friday, September 17, 2010, In : Image 
Well the biggest storm in the world is heading to NZ this weekend. Indeed outside looks like it may have already landed. So opportunities for photos are going to be slim outside this weekend. I may try and be creative inside instead. But for now here is an image I took of storm clouds at Orewa beach. You can find it in the urban gallery and is also available to purchase.

Fridays colour is not very colourful

Posted by richard shaw on Thursday, September 9, 2010, In : Image 
This is a close up abstract of a piece of wooden hand rail. The wood naturally turns silvery grey over time and this piece of wood was no exception. I didn't do anything to the image except crop and sharpen. So although it appears a black and white photo it is in fact colour. This one can be found in the Urban Gallery I hope you enjoy and have a good weekend everyone.

Texture is one of the attractions to me when photographing rust and oxidisation. Oxidisation is actually a very destructive process and often has a devastating effect on man made objects. This is a tractor pedal, encrusted with rust and slowly been eaten alive. I hope you like it.

About Me

Richard Shaw After being a keen photographer for many years, I have finally found my niche and the courage to share it with the world. Having been bogged down for what seems like an eternity with jobs, money and family life, I found my creativity being stifled. So as I carve out a new life and follow new paths my love of photography and my passion for interesting images is returning. Here are my visions, my apparitions of light - of shape, of colour and texture. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy capturing them.
