If anyone is interested here is a little photoshop action i put together. It is especially good at sharpening macro shots , amazing on hair and eyes etc. Just run the action on a flattened layer and brush it in on the mask where needed. Adjust opacity as sometimes it can be a little strong.

In the Savannah scrublands of the new world it's not unusual to see the proud, fire-breathing auto-hawk sit atop the branches and survey the corpse of a freshly killed 4x4.

6B9A2148.jpg


So too, in the narrows and shallows of the 23rd century lagoons that were once the proud residences of the humble human, an avenging death Heron hides among the debris of it's nest (comprised of defeated boats and trader vessels) as it awaits it's next prey.

And in the near dark future, the moon is a tiny blip in the sky.

First pic is 10 min walk from my house in the east end of Glasgow. Some old (Victorian era) industrial ground long since claimed by nature. A dirtbike track is the reason there is a 4x4 in the picture. Abandoned (probably stolen), it only took a few days for it to be set on fire, such is the rapid decay of the poor urban car. This is also where a deer photo I posted some way back was taken.

Second pic is Bowling Harbour to the west of Glasgow. Once home to Victorian and pre-war industry, it;'s now nothing more than a grave for some old boats.

I used to do metal concert photography, but the current world situation put that to rest. I worked then with a friend of mine doing pin-up style stuff (which I obviously can't post here) but again the world situation killed that off, so now I just take pictures of my action figures.

Woo.

I am rather fond of shooting in Infrared. This was taken with a Canon 10D, converted to be a dedicated IR camera, along with a standard 50mm f/1.8.
No post work done, what you see is what you get (for the record, I never do post work on my images, they are all straight from the camera)

IR is wonderful on human skin, smooths out blemishes etc. Only thing it can't hide (they will even show up through makeup) are tattoos.

I'd love to have the skill and equipment to take photos like this! the wildlife around our farm is exceptional from giant king cobras to tiny little golden spiders and everything in between.

My profile photo is a praying mantis threesome but the one dude has already lost his head

It has always been a dream of mine to photograph a king cobra.. maybe one day. If you want to learn you will. Its not so much about the equipment you use more than technique and lighting so it does not have to be expensive to start with.. Love the mantis shot.

They would be reasonably easy to photo if you can find them. I rarely come across them but when I do they don't give a rat's ass about me, they know they're the boss and just take their time and go where they want. Monocle cobras on the other hand are arseholes and actively try to get you.

I've had some great photos Of wildlife but I've only taken them by luck and could be alot better with the right knowledge.
