I have a large number of photographs and videos of lots of different subjects in locations around the world. Some of these have been included in my website, whilst others are in albums or photo books. Explanation and context can be found there, most of the time. Here, it is just the images and the captions. They will have to tell their own story. It is not intended to be an art gallery of superb, pin sharp commercial photos, but you may find the odd one or two that you like.

Photographs, images, and videos

Sometimes I use the word photos very loosely, and include photographs (scanned negatives, slides, and prints, and digital), images, (both scanned and digital creations), animations, and videos. Basically most multimedia, but without the music. (I was told to sit down and be quiet in one singing lesson at school, and have not improved much since then, despite the passage of many years).

My photos and videos used to be catalogued in Extensis Portfolio but moved to Adobe Lightroom. Lightroom is also used for most of my processing in conjunction with DXO Photolab and Adobe Photoshop. Video is processed in Adobe Premiere Pro, Pinnacle, and Avid Media Composer. Previously, for analog video editing I used to use Editman video editor, now defunct.

My Lightroom Keyword List is categorized into the six basic questions of how, what, when, where, who, and why. Which I have basically transposed into; how - Techniques, what - Subject, when (not included here), where - Travel and Locations, who and why (are also ducked here). Leaving additional categories of Events, Abstract, Awards, Arty and Quirky. Not that there are many in the Awards category.

 

There is in the menu a section called Contents, which may have been called Products or Services on a commercial site. This is the bulk of the content of this site, and below is a outline, a taster, to tempt you in.

Photography - Often of places we are visiting, so links to the activity of Travel. Sometimes at an event, or specifically just to take some photos. Also links to the interest in Natural History.

Natural History - Wildlife. From creating a wildlife friendly garden, to being a member of RSPB and going bird watching, to choosing holiday / safari destinations that are wildlife centric.

Another How?

Lets start with what is not included in the concept of Post Production as far as this section goes, whilst accepting that in reality it is. 

The majority of my photos were processed in professional labs, either for negatives or  slides.

After that, they were "as is". Especially with slides. What you took was what you displayed on the screen or wall, whatever the projector was pointed at. Composition, lighting, colour, all of it that was what you had to deal with. Much the same with negatives apart from, you could get them reprinted, or even get the scissors or guillotine out to change the crop.

One whole film of slides of some of my travels, came out with a pink hue. All rejected. Until recently, that is. Scanned them in without trying to change the cast, loaded them into DXO, and used the 'processor corrector'. So easy to amend a lab mistake made over forty years ago.

With digital it is so easy. Alost everything I do is changed and enhanced in Adobe Lightroom. So I don't see anybody wanting the read about that. Therefore, generally, this section is not about negatives, slides and print.

Video post production is, however a whole different story.

It was very complex, challenging, and very expensive. It has gone through many changes to get to the point where you can do some of the post production on your phone. That might be worth writing about.

 

 Film

Moving film is not included as I never had a Super 8 Camera, or anything similar.

Negative and slide

 

Digital still (Photos)

 

 

 Video

Analogue

Starting with VHS and Super VHS, also known as S-VHS. The full size versions. I never dabbled in Betamax, despite it being a better medium than VHS. VHS won the standards war, and Betamax became specialist., 

Then the was Compact or C where the media was still VHS or S-VHS, but the cassets were smaller.

 

Digital tape

The tapes got smaller and the recordings were digital instead of analogue.

 

 

Digital memory

A digital media for a digital recording. Generally SD cards, of various capacities and speeds, but also SSD, or Solid State Drives.
