“How lovely yellow is! It stands for the sun.” Vincent Van Gogh Today I want to dive into a lesson all about colour. I have already done articles on the colours purple and blue and one exploring many different colours. I love to photograph colour, and am always ready to […]

We are moving away from the temporary, surface activities that are fun for a while but bring us nothing really deeply meaningful.
When we are taking photos we are actually making an effort to be here in this world. To have experiences that mean more to us than the meaningless things that are on offer elsewhere.
Hey folks, How are you doing right now? I hope things are good wherever you are. This is Diana today, hello! The more we are in lockdown the more Anthony and I are asking ourselves, what are we learning from this experience? What can we do with this time to […]
I look at many people’s photographs and I’ve noticed that how people take photos is in direct correlation to how they live their day to day lives. This may not sound like a startlingly profound fact but, put simply: your personality can create the biggest barrier to achieving interesting and […]
Would you like to watch me process your images LIVE?
Would you like to see how I would go about working on YOUR photos?
I approach processing how I compose an image – with the spirit and soul of an ARTIST.
Every image is unique. I work on bringing out the inherent qualities of each of my photos, playing with the image and experimenting with different approaches.
I love processing – it is such an exciting part of bringing images to life.
I want to help you not just learn new skills and techniques for processing – but the confidence to explore, experiment and PLAY!
This is an unprecedented time in our history. The COVID-19 pandemic is having an massive impact on our health and wellbeing, the essential services that we rely on, the global economy and on small businesses that we use. We want you to know that we will continue to work during this […]
Close-Focus photo challenge:
Since we’re all focusing on a bit of distancing in our lives right now, I thought I would propose a challenge that reflects this change in our lives.
But unlike social distancing, this is going to be close-focus distancing.
I’ve taught this technique many times in my workshops for those people who have wanted to do a macro image.
Today many of us in the world are in the flux of the feeling of uncertainty and fear. Justified or unjustified fear, to me that is not the point.
Hey everyone, Hope this finds you very well. Today I have swapped the wintery life of London for the heat and vibrancy of Mexico City. I am a little tired of course from the long flight, but there is nothing like beating jet lag with the excitement of being in […]
Hello, This is Diana today. How are you? I hope you are all well and fine in this holiday season, if indeed it’s a holiday for you where you are. Maybe during the holiday season you don’t have the time or inclination to take photos. But we can still spend […]

Hey folks, For some time I have wanted to start teaching what is the biggest challenge people tell me they face in photography – printing their photos. For most people they don’t even consider that they could do anything as ‘advanced’ or ‘technical’ as printing their photos. It’s like just the idea of it makes […]
