Like it or loathe it, we live in the digital era where an idea started by someone somewhere in the world can literally spark an international trend.

Hadouken Photography is an example of how an image (from Japan in this case) can go ‘viral’ and spark the creativity (or lack of..) of millions of people worldwide.

I found myself at an end this afternoon so decided to have a crack at Hadouken Photography but instead of using a friend, I decided to clone myself as some sort of weird video game self portrait.

Here’s what I came up with;

Hey,

Black and white images are amongst my favourite to look at and since becoming remotely serious about photography, I’ve been exploring ways to edit black and white images.

Recently, I came across this Photographer (Serge Ramelli) via his YouTube account when searching for Lightroom 4 tutorials.

One video that stood out was a tutorial on how to create subtle black and white images, which I have followed and practiced on this photo I took last winter in Kaunas, Lithuania.

In order of appearance, is (1) the original image taken from the camera (2) a dramatic colour edit (3) a dramatic black and white image and (4) the final subtle black and white image.

I really like the final image, what are your thoughts/opinions?

Hey guys,

Back in November 2012 I spent a long weekend in Kaunas, Lithuania.

It was the first time I’d taken a DSLR on a trip with me and although I was still using the standard 18-55mm kit lens my 600D came with, I was happy having a camera capable of so much more than a standard point and shoot.

Unfortunately at that time of year the sky is pretty blown out, making landscape shots particularly unflattering. Below are a few of my favourite shots from my trip – Craig

Hey guys,

Yesterday was the Bristol Zombie Walk 2012 and I spent the majority of my afternoon up close and personal with hordes of the undead on the streets of Bristol.

Below is a selection of some of the photos I captured…Brainnnnssssssss!

The rest of the photo’s can be seen on my Flickr Photostream
