How to Produce a Sharp Image
Keith says "I will cover focal planes, point of focus blur, aspects of composition impacting sharpness, tripods, heads, head mounts, using a tennis ball with a monopod, camera settings, hand holding the camera, taking the image and then a short section on how I sharpen the image.And I will challenge one or two photography tenets on the way."
Keith has provided the following information about himself: I have 45 years’ photographic experience.My early formative years were in my late 20s through mid-30s in Wellington, with my friend Mike Wilkinson, who was New Zealand’s top commercial photographer there at the time. That was my first exposure to Hasselblad cameras, and I have used them for personal and Corporate commercial work ever since.My photographic interests are people, landscapes and I have a long-term interest in wildlife photography both here in the UK and abroad. I started visiting the African Continent more than 20 years ago and for the last 9 years I have ran low budget photography expeditions into South Africa.For the last 13 years I have been based in New York and I photographed high-end weddings on the East and West coasts of America. I have had portfolios published in the “ Amateur Photographer” and various other journals. I came second in the North East Wildlife Photographer of the year competition in 2012. I recently semi-retired early from a New York based full time International Corporate Vice President post to free up more time for my photography.I am now based in Darlington and I am an active member of The Gallery Photo Group in Middlesbrough.
