how I use categories on chromasia

All the entries on chromasia are placed into one of seven primary categories: six to reflect the aspect ratio of the image, and the seventh to indicate that an image isn’t available as a print. Additionally, each photograph may be assigned to one of more additional categories or subcategories, e.g. my travel category, children category, and so on.

about the ‘16x9’ category

All images in this category have an aspect ratio of 16x9.

Here's another shot from my trip to Masirah Island (Oman). It's not quite as striking as some of the other shots of these fishing boats, but it does capture something of the peace and tranquility of the trip. I wish I was there now :)

18 June, 2015 // Drigg pillboxcomments & reactions

This is probably the last of the shots I'll be posting from our recent trip to the Lake District: a shot of an old barn - the black building on the left - and a pillbox perched on a small sand dune on the beach at Drigg. If you're not familiar with pillboxes: in England 28,000 of these were built during the early years of World War II, to defend the coast and tidal estuaries. Several thousand still exist, but most, like this one, have seen better days.

22 April, 2015 // GPP 2015 #17comments & reactions

This is the first of two related images that were taken during my Shoot the Street workshop at this years GPP event. Both were shot at the same spot - the plastic curtains that divide the fish market from the meat section - and of the two I prefer the one I'll be posting tomorrow: it's less abstract, but has a surreal quality that I like.

If you take a look at the original you'll see that I changed my mind about the framing on this one - the original shot seemed too tight, and lacking in context. Either way, this was an interesting find: a Unimog, parked on the southernmost beach of Masirah Island.

Our trip out to the desert, for my Landscape Photography workshop at this year's GPP event, was an interesting one as it was extremely windy. Normally I don't mind the wind - you can't live on the north west coast of England if you can't cope with a bit of wind - but it's a real hazard is the desert: the sand howls around, filling every available crevice it comes into contact with. Which is OK for ears, eyes, pockets and so on, but not so good for cameras and lenses. Anyway, we survived the ordeal, all got some great shots, and our gear survived the trip.

Another shot of the 2014 Hong Kong Protests. I almost posted a different version of this one last week, a high contrast black and white, with little or no detail in the sky, but spent some time reworking it this morning as I wanted to create a slightly more surreal version. I'm not sure it's 100% successful, but I'm reasonably happy with how it turned out.

A quick snap taken during the opening ceremony of the TTL[HK] event I've been teaching at this weekend. This was also taken with the new Fujifilm 50-140mm f/2.8, which is fast turning into one of my favourite lenses - it's very sharp.

This was taken towards the end of my Landscape Photography workshop back in Dubai last month, during one of the best sunsets I've seen in the region.

And on a related note, Gulf Photo Plus have just announced the full line up for their 2014 training event (March 7th-14th). As you'll see if you follow the link, it's going to be a great event :-)
