Flickr, my new home for photo sharing/hosting

It has been a while since I gave up on my Zenfolio hosted website, quite a few years in fact, how time flies!

Recently though, I’ve felt the urge to find a new home where I can share my photos taken at various events since 2007, and of course I’ll also be adding new photos as the opportunities arise.

A period of ill-health last year, and subsequent but necessary periods of shielding, have given me the spare time and the motivation to make a start on rebuilding my online portfolio.

A recent offer of 30% off 2 years “Pro” with unlimited storage and other benefits proved too tempting for me, so I now have 2 years to see how things go before deciding whether to continue with a paid membership, or revert back to a free account. This is very much a “work in progress” but at least I’ve made a start, and the fruits of my labour to date can be seen here on my Flickr Page. If you are also a Flickr user, please consider following me there, many thanks.


A New Header Image

I haven’t changed the header page on this blog for a long time so I thought it was about time I did something about it.  Rather than just a single letter-box shaped image, I decided to use the multi-image header you see below, created in Lightroom using the technique described on this page.

Wordpress Header 960x250

The photos are a random mix taken from some recent photo shoots together with some of my more succesful images from recent years.  I have adapted the technique for the different image size here on WordPress (960 x 250 pixels for this theme, the Twenty Twelve).   I also used the same images for the cover photo (851 x 315 pixels) on my photography Facebook Page here.

I hope you like them!
