Camera Filters… No not the Instagram or Snapchat filters! Neutral Density Filters or ND Filters that balance your exposure to 18% grey, used by landscape photographers. In this article I review some Kase Filters. Love them or hate them you either use filters or you don’t. I am one of those photographers that does. I recently submitted an application to review an Acrylic Glass Print by Saal Digital based out of Germany and in due course was accepted provided I wrote an honest review of the product and service received, so here goes! As a landscape photographer I don’t see many landscape prints printed on gloss or acrylic finish, it’s just not done simply because when we admire landscapes in person Where has January gone! Ive no idea… its gone that fast its February already and its time I wrote a quick article from my First Landscape Photography of 2017. Ive been lucky the last 2 years picking great weather conditions to head out for my first shoot and 2017 was no different. I have lost count of the times I have visited Ramshaw Rocks in Staffordshire‘s South West Peak since starting Landscape Photography. Many many times over the last 5 years trying to get that special photograph to be proud of. Its defiantly an addiction returning time after time hoping that the right weather conditions fall into place at the right time to give you a shot you’d be proud of sharing. Of course there are many other factors that might also determine the outcome of the shoot; Like if you forget your cameras memory card or even the tripod mounting plate, both of which I have done on more than one occasion leaving you feeling devastated especially if you have traveled some distance and then walked some more to the final composition! Over the moon to announce that one of my images received the award of “Highly Commended” in the Take a View – Landscape Photographer of the Year 2016 awards. I submitted several images and out of those several images one image got shortlisted. I was extremely pleased to get that far to be honest as this was my first ever competition I had entered. I decided to give The Roaches in Staffordshire a visit. Its not far from mine I live in all fairness a short 30 minute drive away but I’ve always neglected The Roaches for Landscape Photography simply because when I first started shooting the weather was always so unpredictable and there was other places where you could guarantee a good shot. As the years have passed I have always admired other photographers scenes from The Roaches and kicked myself for not being persistent enough. Chrome Hill along with Parkhouse, Hollins and High Wheeldon are the oldest exposed sedimentary limestone rock formations in the Peak District National Park formed over 300 million years ago and deposited over a period of about 20 million years into a shallow tropical sea. Stanage Edge is located in the Dark Peak of the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire, If you look at its location in relation to the Peak District on a map its just slightly North of the center mass, making it an extremely easy to access location for many, with it being just 25 miles from the center of Sheffield you can see why it gets so many visitors year round with stunning views dominating the high ground the edge can be seen for miles away and its a place where I have personally only been a hand full of times as I tend to stay in the White Peak or the South West Peak as it is over an hours drive from home for me.
