Colour Grade

Today's post features a rather nice, twenty fine minute tutorial on how to give your photographs a cinematic style colour grade using Photoshop. You may not be aware of it but many blockbuster movies don't use natural colours but rather tint everything to provide mood and also to draw attention to certain aspects. Here the Photoshop Training Channel show us examples and give us step by step instruction on how you can apply the same effect to your photos. Below the video I have posted the results from when I had a go.

Photographer Andy Davidhazy hiked a whopping 2600 miles from the border of Mexico to the border of Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail. He travelled at the very cool speed of 1spm. That's selfies per mile. Enjoy the time-lapse he made of his journey.

Tech Rope Magic

Firstly let me please apologise for the lack of posts recently. With work, university and home life, things have been a little manic. Hopefully things will be a little quieter now for a while and I can make more posts.

Working at in the outdoor adventure industry I am used to safety harnesses, tying knots and rigging for safety. But these Japanese firefighters take it to a whole new level. This appears to be a speed based competition and boy are they fast.

Rainbow Run

My employer played host to a very colourful event yesterday. St Richard's Hospice, a local charity, held a charity fun run with a difference. The runners were sprayed and dusted in colourful powder paint as they took part. It made for a cracking photo opportunity but I was caught in the crossfire a few times and feared for my camera. A great day though.

Home Of Democracy

I have long known that my small city has been host to some pretty big historic events over the years, but its always nice to be educated. This video highlights the role that Worcester played in the creation of Magna Carta and how in many ways how Worcester became the birthplace of liberty and democracy in Britain.

We Need To Talk

As many of you will know I suffer from depression. If you need a reminder you can read this post I made. Now that was several years ago now and I am happy to report that I got help and generally speaking I'm now in a much better place. I still suffer but I'm no longer on medication and I many more good days than bad.

Kevin Breel is a writer, comedian and a campaigner to raise awareness for mental health issues. Like me he is a suicide survivor but he speaks about the issue much more eloquently and I urge you to listen. Not just to the video but to anyone you know who suffers with depression.

Dark Rangers

Ever wondered what became of the Power Rangers? Fan films comes in different styles but the description of "deboot" is a new one to me, but it really works in this case. Starring Katee Sackhoff and James van der Beek, it obviously had a substantial budget and there doesn't seem to be any intention to take it further but rather its a gift to fans. However don't expect the fluffy series of the 90's, this is dark and gritty and is extremely well made.
