So many people think that software is expensive. Just take a step back and think about your mobile phone contract? You pay for that every month because you need the latest phone, the same applies to software. If you are going to be setting up in photo restoration or trying it out for a hobby or whatever, Adobe Photoshop could not be any cheaper right now.
There are some amazing deals with Adobe for single application packages. If you want Photoshop, you’ll get LightRoom thrown in for less than £10 per month!!!.

You just cant go wrong at this exciting time in buying the industry standard in photo editing software… go on do it!
I received a call at 8.45am this morning from BBC Radio Solent inviting me on the Alex Dyke show at 10:10 am talking about flood damage photos and the recent flooding disaster. Obviously I said yes! Having previously been talking about photo restoration on BBC National Radio on the Mark Wright show i jumped at another chance to share what we can do.
I think its fair to say at such short notice its easy to panic but “be yourself”. It should be less nerve racking than when I was broadcast Nationally last time on evening radio. This time of the morning is in tune with my target audience, or at least i hope so.
I wish to thank Alex Dyke for having me on the show and the team at the BBC
Wedding photographers TIP: Do you have an indecisive client?
If you do this is your radar to tell you to think smart. Shoot the line up and posed locations with no one in them.
I often get requests to take people out of a line up and then bunch them up. Its 10 times more difficult and costly for everyone if there is no “blank scene” to use as a donor for filling in gaps in the background. Shoot an empty scene with no people and this safe guards the retouching process and gives you leeway for indecisive clients! All it takes is one extra shot! Use a tripod and keep it in the same spot for each location!
