'Photographic fine art prints, cards and calendars'
I mainly take landscapes of the local area, but am also interested in garden photography and travel shots - when I can! Most of my images are 'straight' just using the normal enhancements necessary to get the best out of a RAW file. However, sometimes I also use a variety of software products to turn the image into something more painterly - usually in the style of the Impressionists. I work mainly in colour, but do occasionally turn an image to monochrome if that suits the mood and composition better. I shall be showing both framed and mounted prints as well as a range of greetings cards and a Wiltshire 2018 wall calendar.
