This photo was taken near the city of Pula in Croatie. We had beautiful sunsets every night, with a lovely peace of coast where this fisherman was easing his way to catch some dinner :)

At the weekend I was taking photos of cyclists on an event during the middle of the day in full sun. In these situations I often struggle to get a decent exposure on people's faces. I have been trying to use spot metering,...

Head Shot Retouch

I'm interested in getting some feedback on a recent head shot I did. I try to use a light hand when it comes to retouching, especially for my clients who deal with the public.

In the shadows
