hUpyIg I appreciate you sharing this post.Really thank you! Cool.

Hi Michael

I process my row data in my own way using Photoshop and Nik plug in to produce my black and white photography.
Recently, I downloaded "Silver Efex Pro" 15-day free trial and using it to find out if I can produce black and white photography quicker than my current way of doing it.

I do photography as my interest and extend of my fine art background. I am not working for anybody for these back and white photography.
I frequently check on the website for any events happing in London. My wife also feeds me some information when she finds any interesting event mentioned on newspapers.
I hope this will answer some of your questions.

Thank you for your comment.

As an amateur photographer I am fascinated in how you get so much tonality to your action shots. I'd automatically think you'd usd HDR to get the range if it wasn't for the fact that you're taking an action shot. Do you use photomatix to create a fake HDR effect?

I understand that some photographers have their secrets so thank you for some fantastic images even if you aren't able to divulge.

I'd also like to get more photographic opportunities if not actual work, How do you get your photographic opportunities? Are you employed to do the work? Are you looking at events calendars to find out what's going on? Do you have contacts who can get you in the right place at the right time?
