Nigella’s Venetian Carrot Cake

Nigella’s Venetian Carrot Cake

After baking one of Nigella Lawson’s cakes from her ‘Kitchen’ book and enjoying it so much, we decided it needed to be recorded for posterity.  The cake is wonderfully moist even a few days after being baked, it is rich and indulgent.  Butter is replaced with olive oil and flour by ground almonds and so is more the ‘healthy option’.

Beyond the Moment of Capture by Brian Beaney FRPS

A day of lectures by Brian Beaney FRPS has been organized by the RPS Digital Imaging Eastern Centre.  I sit on the committee of this section and was asked to produce the flyer which was distributed to over a hundred photography clubs and institutions within the East of England.  Brian is a great speaker and humorous too, it will prove to be a very interesting and entertaining day.  PDF Flyer here

Workshop Announced – “The Four Corners Adventure”

Workshop Announced – “The Four Corners Adventure”

Photography workshops on 14-16th May 2011

Held at a Private Ranch – Abajo Haven Guest Cabins

A small 3-day workshop in the Jurassic landscape of Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico.  May is a beautiful time in this region, the Abajo Mountains coming alive with spring flowers and the desert temperatures are still bearable.

Our home-base is Abajo Haven Guest Cabins, a private ranch not too far from the town of Blanding, comprising a few log cabins with amazing views of the blue mountains.  Three full days of shooting are planned taking in the Arches National Park, Monument Valley on the Navajo Nation’s Reservation and where countless western style movies have been filmed, and Mesa Verde – home of the ancient Native American Puebloan culture.

On-location time is emphasized over classroom time, Les will conduct a short talk in the evening, or over lunch on the days when we get back late due to shooting the sunset.  The workshop should appeal to all levels of experience and the content of the talk is taylored to the participants needs and requests. Topics such as correct exposure for digital photography and the use of histograms, suitable camera settings such as color space and white balance are covered.  For the more experienced photographer we’ll be covering workflow, camera color profiling and the use of ND graduated filters.
