Summer Shots: The Heat

I’ve recently finished the third draft of my new novel EggHead and am spending some time away from it, working on my photography.   I took these shots yesterday in Highgate Wood, North London, and edited them in Photoshop:



Meanwhile, my debut novel – Secrets by Lawrence Estrey – is available as a paperback and in e-book (Kindle)  from Amazon



Improving Old Shots (Photoshop)

My latest batch of photographs got ruined due to poor lighting, extra slow shutter speed and resulting camera shake, so I thought I would continue experimenting with Photoshop and improving old shots.

New To Photoshop

After months of using Photoshop Elements and GIMP, I finally have access to Photoshop.   It’s sort of complicated in some ways but familiar in others.   Below are some poorer shots I’ve taken over the years; I’ve used Photoshop to bring out of the atmosphere in each.   Locations, Queen’s Wood and Highgate Wood, Muswell Hill, & Alexandra Park.
