I've taken some time away from the keyboard to spend some quality time with my car and camera.
As usual several dozen shots reveal just a couple of pictures worth passing through Photoshop to clean up. But that's the thrill for me. I'm a fairly keen post-production guy in that sense. I'd love to develop my skills in this area. Possibly adding the 3D modelling string to my bow.
Something that I love about the Photoshop process is the opportunity to augment the image with something fantastic.
I have a library of shots that have been taken with exactly this in mind. The image above of the beach at Prestatyn with the North Hoyle wind farm project about 5 miles off-shore just lent itself to having something from science fiction planted in to the scene. What better than Cloud City from The Empire Strikes Back !
I've decided to plot my way around the country to try and find some similarly inspiring locations.
