Imaginary VisionsPhoto gallery and blog
Imaginary Visions is about my love for photography. Here you will find an eclectic portfolio, split into galleries with each focusing on a separate subject. Please have a browse. You will find pretty landscapes and rigid architecture, beautiful (or handsome) models, strange imaginary creatures reflected in smoke, musicians, sunsets, puppies, snapshots and crap shots.
Please check out the blog with posts covering a wide ranging set of photo related subjects. You might come across carefully constructed still lives, technical experiments, equipment reviews, philosophical tirades, thoughts about photo books and exhibitions or simply blog posts about individual pictures or photo shoots. Some of it will be imaginative, and some will appear random, for the collection is driven by curiosity and shaped by a changing, arbitrary focus. This is by chance rather than design.

Feedback from my tutor for my TAOP Assignment 3.
In this exercise I’m looking at how the colour temperature of sunlight changes between mid-day and sunset.
There is nothing wrong with Exploring Color Photography, and there is a lot of things right about it. It just feels like Robert Hirsch has taken a general photography manual and added the word color [sic] to every other heading, just like a house-owner looking to make a quick sale will get the decorator in to give all the walls a quick lick of magnolia. On the plus side, the book is lavishly illustrated with a large selection of beautiful (color) photographs.
This assignment is all about colour. Harmonious, contrasting, complementary, accents, design, filtering, adding and subtracting, etc. I sometimes describe myself as a bit of a colour-holic, and here present 16 colourful pictures with commentaries on composition, balance and movement.
In this exercise, I look at black and white conversions of a colour photograph, and how to change the tones in the picture.
