That is quite a body of work you have there Simon, all good, some excellent, complete departure from your usual postings here.



many thanks Toby, thing is , what I usually show here is what I struggle with, or at least images that I am trying to learn something new and have been trying to apply it, but there's a whole lot I have done before (some waaay before) that I don't feel I struggle with particularily, but just fancied sharing as I kinda like this stuff

Some really good images Simon.

I reckon you have the makings of a book here if you give it some serious thought.

Re: Buskers and vagabonds


Bit of both really Simon.

I think you may have something here. Can't find anything like it on Amazon.

I don't know how many of these type of images you have but I'd be inclined to have them edited (ruthlessly)and pick a unifying tone, shape and size. Maybe you could interview some of them (if not possible, perhaps for any future photos you take) and put their stories on a page next to their picture.

Then you can consider how to publish. Traditional route with a paper publisher is difficult but, as I said, it's different to what is usually published so it might pique their interest. Plenty of articles on the web as to how to write a book proposal.

You could also put them into the Kindle store as a monograph (maybe with a bit of intro text) but then you have to do your own publicity.

Of course there's always something like Blurb who will print on demand and you could maybe see about getting them into local bookshops. Your local WH Smith will likely stock them for you. I think though, that the cost of this route is somewhat high but then so is the production value.

Hope that helps?

Re: Buskers and vagabonds


This collection has really surprised me in a very nice way Simon. They are by far the best images and edits I have ever seen from you. Everyone has their strengths and weakness regarding photography but this genre seems to totally suit you. It is not an easy form of photography but you sure have cracked it. I think Steve is correct about compling this work into a suitable format.

Re: Buskers and vagabonds


Steve makes a good point about pulling the toning etc into a uniform style, makes them more of a 'set'.

thanks yes, I know thats what one is supposed to do - problem is - I tink the tones I have used are the ones that suit them best

I did try other tones on each but these are what I setteled on
Toby, these are all SEP presets, I had never tried them before but after your recent pics decided to give thema go and have to say I like them not least because they are easy and quick

Due to checking the tones out I also started doiong some editing in SEP , which I never have before despite having had it for ages, and also was shy of getting my head around the control points, only to discover that actually the control points are no more compliacted than the adjustment brushes in LR ( some how the penny just 'dropped') and some of the other SEP adjustmenst are actually rather good

All these had something or other done in SEP

I can't think which tone would be best for the lot as one is always likely to default to sepia I suppose, any other ideas of what would suit the lot anyone?
