Snettisham Beach at sunset https://www.amuphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/snettisham-beach-at-sunset Snettisham Beach is almost featureless, and isn't all that interesting. Apart that is, from the the remains of an old pier, which is why I've gone there many times over the years to take landscape photos. The structure has an almost unearthly quality, and due to it's ongoing decay (bits of it are falling off), the photos that are possible are at each visit tend to be quite different.

More or less every year I go to The Photography Show at the NEC to have a look at the newly released technology in the industry, sometimes take advantage of show deals, and occasionally take in the odd seminar. This year, when I found at that one of the pioneers of the use of camera flash in the field (before it became so popular) was giving a photo shoot on the grounds of the NEC, I thought I'll give that a go and meet the man in person. It took the form more or less of a portrait/fashion style shoot, with Joe talking about - and confirming what I already knew about his style of working - how he would use movie style lighting techniques in stills photography. I would say the first location worked better than the second, the results are below, with a photo of Joe himself having a chat to some of the other attendees.....

Thornham Harbour https://www.amuphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/2/thornham-harbour This week, in my attempts at forming a habit of taking landscape photographs, I thought I'd take a trip to Thornham Harbour, a location characterised by several old tree trunks/stumps. I'm not sure how long they've been there, but they can be an interesting subject matter if handled correctly although they have been photographed a lot over the years. Thornham Harbour is also a well known birdwatching spot, and there's always a few twitchers trying to get a good view of the various species of birds found there. I'm only there for the landscape though, and I hope you enjoy the results.

Hunstanton on a windy overcast day https://www.amuphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/2/hunstanton-on-a-windy-overcast-day I hadn't found much time to get out and shoot landscapes for quite some time, so off to the Norfolk coastline I headed. Even though it was overcast, windy and the sky appeared quite featureless - generally just drab - I still felt it was worth the effort. I was surprised by the amount of people about on Old Hunstanton where I had chosen to go (even though it was half term at the local schools, it was a miserable day and not one for a trip to the beach), so I had to work around that, and even included people in one photo. I also decided the photos had to be edited as black and white, monochrome seemed to fit the day, the conditions and the subject perfectly. I was quite pleased with the final results, and I plan on shooting landscapes far more often.....

Retrospective of 2017 https://www.amuphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/12/retrospective-of-2017 Seeing as Christmas is very nearly upon us, and with it the end of 2017 in sight, I seemed a good idea to have a look back at some of my favourite shots of the year.

King's Lynn lit up at night from across the River Great OuseKing's Lynn lit up at night from across the River Great OuseKing's Lynn lit up at night from across the River Great Ouse King's Lynn at night from across the Great River Ouse: I've included this because it's probably one of the best photos I've ever taken, it's the end result of twenty separate images and stitched together. I had to visit this site a few times for the conditions to be exactly right, the tide had to be high, very low wind and almost no movement in the water, and hopefully all the persistence and effort was worth it.

062062 From Emma & Lucan's wedding shoot, taken in front of King's Lynn Town Hall: Ahead of the wedding day, because King's Lynn is full of old and unique architecture I had arranged a meeting with the bride to throw ideas for photos around and see which ones she preferred. As the reception was going to be at King's Lynn Town Hall, one of the ideas I suggested was a photo in front of the building as the light was fading I know the facade is lit at night. I also suggested it would look fantastic if I used flashguns to create a backlit effect on the two of them, Emma really loved it the idea and bought heavily into the concept. Fortunately the weather was fine on the day, but for some unknown reason, the uplighting on the Town Hall failed to turn on, so I worked with the circumstances and the final effect was quite atmospheric and worked really well.

Becky & David at Castle Rising: At the pre-wedding meeting, the Bride & Groom told me they wanted to use Castle Rising for some of their photos, would book the necessary tickets, however there was only half an hour to get there from the church, get the photos and get back to the reception venue. I advised it was not really anywhere near enough time so they obliged by creating a slightly longer window as it was something they really wanted to do. On the day, I kept it simple using a single flashgun softened with a soft box and had someone holding it on a boom arm to the left behind the door to lift and balance the light on the two of them. This is one of a series of photo taken on site, and we had to contend with the rain showers to get them, but wedding photography is often about working within the time constraints, shooting flexibly, dodging less than ideal weather and still getting the photo so no one would know any difference, and that's why this makes it into my favourites of 2017.

Lawrence & Jolita at Tower Gardens, King's Lynn: I agreed with the Bride & Groom that we'd use Tower Gardens for some of their photos, and on the day it turned out to be scorching hot, slightly hazy, but the light was good from the right direction. I decided to work with the available light and shoot a panorama consisting of several shots, in this case six that would be stitched together in Lightroom during the editing process. I like this because of the diffuse quality of the light, and it's generally everything my style of photography is about - panoramic, cinematic, portraits that make the subject a feature or part of the landscape, and using a shallow depth of field to create focus on the happy couple.

Lisa & Jack during sunset at the King's Head, Bircham: This was actually taken in the overflow carpark at the hotel just after the Lisa & Jack had finished their sit down meal and were relaxing, I told them we actually had a sunset and asked if they wanted to get some photos taken, and of course they said "absolutely!" When weddings are in the last third of the year, evening is quite often one of the few times I can shoot portraits of the Bride & Groom, as it has to be fitted in around the ceremony, meal and other set parts of the day, so I've gravitated towards a style that involve shooting in low light and using off camera flash to create lighting effects, especially backlighting. This was one of those weddings later in the year, when the nights draw in earlier but  it happily coincided with a sunset, which trust me, in Norfolk that doesn't happen too often so when it does I feel obliged to make use of it! I'd also bought myself some new compact portable flash heads prior this shoot and while I'd tested them before hand, it was my first time using them at a wedding, and I was very pleased with their performance!

Melissa & James at Hunter's Hall, Swanton Morley: I really enjoy shooting first dance pictures, partly because it is purely about documenting what unfolds, and also because it can be challenging for various reasons, not least because of the lack of light. It's generally necessary to use of camera lighting during first dances as there's little or no ambient light to work with, and I like to use a couple of flash heads to flood the dance floor and create a rim lighting effect. This one worked well because many of their guests joined them for the second half of the dance and it created added, depth and an interesting backdrop.

King's Lynn Lit Up At Night https://www.amuphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/7/kings-lynn-lit-up-at-night King's Lynn lit up at night from across the River Great OuseKing's Lynn lit up at night from across the River Great OuseKing's Lynn lit up at night from across the River Great Ouse About three years ago, I took a photo of King's Lynn from across the River Great Ouse at night with the Lumieré images projected on one of the towns most recognisable landmarks, the Customs House. At the time I was happy with the image, it proved quite popular and has even been published a couple of times, but me being who I am, tend to revisit the same subject again to try and improve on my initial effort. And so it was that I ventured out to the same spot, stupidly misjudging the time it would get dark enough to replicate the conditions, and in the process spent hours staring at the scene while the light changed from sunset to night. Again, I was initially happy with the resulting panorama, which soon turned to dissatisfaction because the tide was not high enough!

So I decided to go out again, this time however, waiting for the exact perfect conditions. One problem is the River Great Ouse is full of swirling undercurrents and is seldom still enough to give the type of reflections I was after, even on a near windless and clear night. A couple of weeks passed, then one Saturday night on which a high tide coincided with windless conditions, I made the snap judgement to head out again once more. After a couple of practice runs while waiting for the light to fade enough, I got lucky and the river became almost completely still. I managed to get the above panorama - consisting of about 15 shots stitched together - shot before the currents abruptly changed and disrupting the calmness of the water. This time, I am actually happy with the resulting photograph, so I don't think I'll be going back again. Well, maybe not.

Sleeklens Presets Review https://www.amuphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/6/sleeklens-presets-review A short while ago, I was offered the chance by Sleeklens to try out some of their Lightroom presets in return for a review. Sleeklens offer all sorts of presets for both Lightroom and Photoshop with the aim of speeding up and making the editing process quicker and easier, something that would appeal to most photographers when they have hundreds of images to wade through. I was provided with the Through the Woods preset package for Lightroom, as that's the software I use for the bulk of my editing these days. It consists of 80 landscape presets and 42 brushes, is downloadable from the Sleeklens website and instructions are provided for installing them which is a simple process anyway.

I decide to experiment with the presets on a long exposure landscape I shot last night of the town I live in from across the river that runs through the middle of it.

LUMIERE KING'S LYNN 2017, Alan Michael Usher Photography, King's Lynn PhotographerLUMIERE KING'S LYNN 2017LUMIERE KING'S LYNN 2017, Alan Michael Usher Photography, King's Lynn Photographer

I found the all in one presets to be a little too vibrant for this particular image because of the lit up night scene, but they can be dialled back somewhat by altering any of the sliders that are automatically adjusted if used. I did use the brush presets more, in particular brighten to pick out some of the detail along the centre, and darken in the form of a grad on the sky and the water to achieve some balance. Using the brush presets this way saves having to fiddle around moving sliders for the adjustment brush or the grad tool, and can save a bit of time, especially when editing a 400mb file stitched together from twelve files! I'm happy with the final results and crucially, it's very similar to what I had in mind when I was stood on the river bank taking the photo.

As it's also a large part of my work, I thought I would try these presets out on a photo taken recent wedding shoot. I know these presets are specifically aimed at landscapes, but theres method to the madness. I tend to produce quite a lot of environmental portraits for my wedding clients, placing them in the surrounding landscape to achieve (hopefully) images with atmosphere and character to help tell the story of they day - basically, a landscape with people in!

SLEEKLENS TEST, Alan Michael Usher Photography, King's Lynn PhotographerSLEEKLENS TESTSLEEKLENS TEST, Alan Michael Usher Photography, King's Lynn Photographer This first version is the original edit, which I was more than happy with as the muted blue tones tied in with my clients pale blue colour theme.

This second version was corrected using the Through the Woods presets, and I deliberately decided to create an overall warmer look. Neither version is right or wrong, and I'd be happy to present either to a client, but again, I did find myself dialing back the presets to create a more subtle realistic look to the final image.

Overall, I'd say Sleeklens presets are useful and can save hassle, the colours and the contrast from some of the all in one preset looks can be almost too strong, but I'd recommend adjusting them to achieve the optimal desired effect, and that's easy enough to do. You can, however, use the base tints instead and layer and stack the brushes to create a more natural and in my opinion preferable effect. Overall, I'd say the preset are useful, and I will keep using them where it's appropriate for me.

The presets in this review are available here Through the Woods presets, and the whole range of their presets are available at Sleeklens presets.

You can find Sleeklens on Pinterest, and they also offer a photo editing service.

Kings Lynn Town Hall Wedding Fair - 2nd April 2017 https://www.amuphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/4/kings-lynn-town-hall-wedding-fair---2nd-april-2017 It was on to King's Lynn Town Hall for this weekends wedding fair, one of the areas most unique and recognisable venues. Steeped in history, it's one of the oldest buildings in the town, and it's one of my favourite places to photograph weddings and events with lots of period features and character. The day was a fantastic success with lots of brides and grooms coming along to see the stands of local suppliers - in fact, it was such a good day, some of the other exhibitors even posed for photos with their stands! A big thanks to the team at the Town Hall for organising such a great event.

The Golden Lion Hotel Wedding Fair https://www.amuphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/3/the-golden-lion-hotel-wedding-fair It was off to Hunstanton today for The Golden Lion's first ever wedding fair. Not many wedding venues can boast a location so close to the seafront, which from a photographer's point of view, is great as the beach is only a very short walk away for those photos of the happy couple! They'll be having another fair later this year in October, and I'm looking forward to exhibiting at that too, and meeting all the Brides & Grooms planning their weddings. A big thanks to all those who attended, the other exhibitors and the team at the Golden Lion for hosting today's fair.

Heacham Manor Hotel Wedding Fayre 2017 https://www.amuphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/3/heacham-manor-hotel-wedding-fayre-2017 I had the pleasure of being one of the exhibitors at a wedding fayre today at one of my favourite venues, Heacham Manor Hotel. Set in picturesque grounds, it's located on the Norfolk coast within easy reach of the many local beaches, so there's generally lot's of opportunities for taking interesting photographs. I originally intended to only take photos of my stand, but that soon morphed into taking various photos of the other interesting stands and details to be found throughout the whole fayre once I saw them! Thanks to all the visitors who came along on a rather wet day in March, all the other exhibitors, and a big thanks to Emma & Rachel and the fantastic team at Heacham Manor for organising the event.

Yamaha XVS Custom https://www.amuphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/12/yamaha-xvs-custom I was recently commissioned to photograph this Yamaha XVS Custom motorcycle with the aim of creating the poster featured below. The client wanted these photos taken as a birthday gift for his brother who owns the bike, and has been living and working in New York for some time, it's his pride and joy but he's not been able to transport it over with him. I put the poster artwork together myself in photoshop based on the specifications of the client.
