Urbex Film: Abandoned The Greenhouse

An short film of an abandoned time capsule in Norfolk.

So I feel I really upped my game with this short film that I made recently. I learnt a lot making this film and I am really pleased with the final outcome. Hopefully you are too.

A timelapse of an abandoned house I explored in Norfolk, UK. A small derelict property I found a couple of years ago. I decided to go and have another look to do some filming. It didn't work out too well and returned the next day to try something different.

Thanks for watching I hope you enjoyed. Let me know your thoughts below. If you fancy seeing my original visit you can see the images here... Abandoned House Norfolk.

Tutorial: Making A Timelapse With Lightroom and LRtimelapse

So we have a tutorial on making a time lapse video with Lightroom and LRtimelapse. It seems quite long winded and confusing, but once you get to grips with the saving and reading of metadata you will be making your own time lapse videos in no time.

Urbex Film: Greys Car Graveyard

Campaign: An Industrial Timelapse Film

So here is my first proper timelapse film. Based on the sugar beet campaign in East Anglia. Mostly shot at the Wissington site due to the access and views available, there are also scenes of Bury St Edmunds and Cantley. I used a wide focal range for this film maxing out at 500mm. 

The sugar beet campaign only lasts around four months it starts around October and ends around January. This obviously varies due to weather and the harvest of the beet. I do love large industry and there isn't really much around East Anglia, so I had been eagerly awaiting the start of the campaign, to shoot some timelapse.
 

Thanks for watching. If you have any views on this film, leave a comment below.

Urbex Film: An Abandoned Train Journey

Tutorial: Merging Brackets In Photoshop

Just a brief tutorial in merging brackets from Lightroom using layers and a mask in Photoshop. I kept it simple and only used a graduated filter.

A brief Lightroom tutorial on merging brackets in photoshop, using layers and a mask. I kept it simple by using the graduated filter mask. I find this technique easier, cleaner and more precise than HDR. Remember f you are going to use this technique keep it subtle.

Tutorial: Basic RAW Editing in Lightroom

So here we have the first in a line of tutorials that will be appearing here on the odd occasion.

A brief introduction to editing RAW Files in Lightroom. We touch on lens profiles, I consider this an essential and the first part of my workflow. Also using the graduated filter a highly under rated tool in the lightroom arsenal. So I hope you find this useful I will have more coming along soon.
 

Hopefully you find this useful. Let me know what you think.

Abandoned Balconies

The view from abandonment. Many abandoned buildings are set in beautiful locations with stunning vista's.  Some more grand than others. 

No more morning coffees, romantic dinners while watching the setting sun. No more watching the sunrise with a glass of wine after a crazy night out. These balconies lie empty and restless.

A large amount of balconies can be found here as it was built as a sanatorium and air baths were considered the best form of treatment for tuberculosis.

Abandoned: RAF Sculthorpe

A short film of the abandoned air base RAF Sculthorpe in Norfolk. A mixture of timelapse and video, shot over a few visits to the location. It was the first location I decided to shoot as its kind of local and quiet so I was able to take my time shooting here.
