"Idyllic Wivenhoe" A Book of Wivenhoe Images Now for sale

Idyllic Wivenhoe Book Link  Available to buy my new  book " Idyllic Wivenhoe" A collection of 59 Wivenhoe Scenes.

Ever since my early career as a precision  photographic technician, producing work for electronics, space and defence industries I have had a passion for capturing detail and texture in photography. For my images of Wivenhoe I have used the High-dynamic-range (HDR) photographic technique, which emphasizes detail and texture.

When we look at a scene with our eyes and then take a photographic image we are often disappointed  by the resulting image not looking as we viewed it. Ie there is often a loss of detail in the bright or dark areas. This is because our eyes have a resolution power three times the processing power of the most sophisticated camera.  By using the HDR photographic technique and capturing multiple photographs at different exposure levels of the same scene and combining them to produce one final photograph, the resulting image has a broader tonal range and no loss of detail in bright or dark areas.

I hope that my images of  Wivenhoe convey the  beauty of  this  idyllic Essex village by combining the various elements of  careful artistic composition, optimum lighting conditions and precision processing. My desire is also that the variety of  Wivenhoe scenes captured  on camera will provide a  lasting documentation of  the village Wivenhoe for future generations to enjoy in this ever changing world of ours.
