Landscapes are living eco systems and environments. They have existed well before, and will hopefully be here way beyond the time we are here. When taking photographs, time and space seem hard for me to measure. Whenever I shoot a ‘quality’ image, I know it. At those moments things are quiet, seem simple again – and I obtain a respect and reverence for the world that is hard to communicate through words. For me these moments happen when the exterior environment and my interior world combine. Hopefully the images presented help communicate how I feel and what I see during those times. 

 

My work today is produced using a digital workflow. All the images presented are captured as latent images. Prints are produced using pigment inks on archival cotton rag paper.

HDR Tutorial Guide

HDR Tutorial Guide Thing for Photomatix

First things first. Why a new tutorial when I’ve just released a book on HDR? Well quite simply that the old tutorial is old and in need of updating. A lot of people reference it on a daily basis so its only fair to update the tutorial. The book still contains more content than this tutorial will, way more. Thats a hint to buy it by the way ;) You’ll get a chapter on landscapes, interiors, exteriors, people, street photography, black and white processing and lots of other tips n tricks too. Its by far the most comprehensive HDR book on the market.

Andrew Brooks Photography

Andrew Brooks is a photographer, a digital artist and film maker living and working in Manchester, northwest England.

His visual palette draws its inspirations from analogue reality, the contemporary urban surroundings in which he lives and works or the natural world that he escapes into.

“The crucial element to my work is atmosphere….  No matter how much digital application is going on, the atmosphere and feel of a picture is always the most important thing.”

Andrew’s creative process often results in capturing hundreds of images to create a complete work. Then, a meticulously developed sequence of cut, paste and rebuilding, moulding a new scene from his own vividly re-imagined viewpoint that is consistent, yet also a parallel with that of the perceived reality it represents.

The images that emerge depict starkly beautiful urban scenes, empty but for the hollowed-out shells of buildings; cities suspended in the stars, imagined urban environments and serene pastoral scenes of the British countryside, seemingly real and at the same time untruthful in their vivid beauty.

Large Format Polaroid Instant Photography Lives

20×24 Studio » Where Large Format Polaroid Instant Photography Lives.

Polaroid was the first company to offer   photographers instant gratification. While we mostly think about instant film prints that the company is famous for, the lesser known 20×24 Polaroid camera is something of a rare unknown beast of legend. I recently took a tour to view one right here in NYC at 20×24 Studios. For those of you not as familiar with the Polaroid line, the 20×24 studio camera is an old-school giant that shoots massive 20 inch by 24 inch exposures.
