Welcome to Lenscraft
Dedicated to helping you create great photography
When I first created Lenscraft it was to share my Landscape Photography. And whilst I enjoy taking photographs I love sharing my knowledge with others. If you want to learn how I create my images, step inside the Lenscraft website. You will find everything you need to apply the same techniques to your own work. And don’t worry if you’re not a Landscape Photographer, the same principles can be applied to any type of photography.

Latest Work - December 2014
This is New Brighton Lighthouse at sunset. Yes the cloud and colours are real. This is one of the most rewarding sunsets I have captured in a long time.

The image was captured on an Olympus EM5 with an Olympus 12-40mm lens. The aperture was set to f/10.0 in order to lengthen the shutter speed and blur the waves. Ordinarily I would have used a polarising filter or 4 stop ND filter to achieve this but I left these at home by accident. A 0.3 ND Graduated filter (Lee Seven 5 series) was used to darken the sky and balance the exposure a little with the water. The shutter speed was 1.6″ with the camera tripod mounted.

Whilst I have turned Lenscraft into a free learning resource for photographers everywhere it still remains an important part of my photography business. I still use it to display my work which I hope will give you ideas to apply in your own photography. And if you have your own website, why not sign up for free membership and ask to be added to the Members Sites section.
