It has been weeks since I’ve been into London with my camera. I’ve been writing so much about photography and not doing it! Tsk Tsk!

Set your browsers for stun this friday, when my new post will be out and will reveal my editing workflow!

Anyone on Instagram? I am ‘michaeltoye’.

Here’s my last 9!


Hehe, you’re all expecting a full article… which is coming, I promise.

In the meantime, is this a good image that represents multiple exposure bracketed images and which ‘correct exposure’ portions of each image are used ?

One old. One new.


Forgotten Doorway

My post on Digital Photography School.


Part 2 will be a reveal on my editing workflow!



I actually came across a composition I couldn’t capture. I just don’t have the focal length Cap’n!

17mm is not enough!

Here’s the staircase I took this from. Leaning as far back as possible, 17mm lens shifted as much as possible! There’s a 30 foot drop over the edge.

Exclusive to this blog and because it’s soo dark outside! Sized at 2880×1800 for a Macbook Pro Retina screen. For everyone else, shrinking is better than stretching!

This is Southsea, a southern UK coastal town, on a warm and peaceful day. I hope it will help you stay creative :)

Here’s a cute cheetah cub I photographed a while back. He had just ‘killed’ a fellow photographer’s backpack and would not give it up. My observations, in that moment, we’re a) I’m going to have to explain this false animal kingdom moment and b) photographers are very brave when their kit is in danger. Dankert dived for his bag and the snarling cheetah was suddenly irrelevant!



On a side note

You will find my posts are now going to multiply as I will be writing regularly for Digital Photography School. They really are a great learning site and I am honoured to join their writing ranks. I think they must have liked my guest post :D

Keep smiling people, it’s a good day today :)

Sorry for the quiet few days. Weekends can be so busy and I am also trying to scare up new work too.

In the meantime, be reminded of warmer climates and awesome dawn scapes.
