Adobe Lightroom 4 – thumbs up !

I have been using Adobe Lightroom ever since it was first released. To me, the software is a photographer’s dream; if I have been shooting a football match or a wedding, and have up to several hundred photos to sift, sort and then edit – it lets me do this very quickly.

It keeps my images nicely filed away, and does so, so many other things, far to numerous to list here.

Adobe has just released a beta version – a preview – of the new version of Lightroom, and I am not disappointed!  The new develop – image editing- tools (seen below editing Ted) were well worth the wait.

I’m so looking forward to getting my mits on the final version.

Merry Christmas!

I’d like to thank all of you – my blog followers – for taking the time to visit my blog throughout the year, and I’d like to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas!

Rather than publish another photo of me in a Santa costume, (there’s too many of those around already) I thought I’d post one of my photos of the gorgeous Gully’s Girls, Brighton & Hove Albion’s cheerleaders in their Santa costumes instead.

I’m sure you will agree that they are much better looking than me!

 

Gully’s Girls are (left to right) Amanda, Amy, Billie, Katie, Lou, Gail, Alex, Bex, Grace, Laura, Jo, Elleesha, Hannah, April, Ree, Chloe, Tayla, and Kate.

Three Photos in the Leeds United Programme

Leeds United Football Club used three of my photos in their matchday programme for their game against Cardiff City on 22nd October.

The photos were of the Leeds United matchday mascot who made the long journey south to support his team playing against Brighton at the Amex Stadium. Unfortuantely, the poor lad and his family were held up by two delays on Network Rail, and didn’t arrive in time to meet the players before the game. Nevertheless, we managed to get some good photos of him in the minutes before the game started, and sent them to Leeds.

Here’s the page in the programme…

Why do Forest Green Rovers play in red?

The Brighton & Hove Albion website carries one of my photos taken at the Reserves v Forest Green Rovers game at Lancing tonight, showing the talented George Barker scoring a penalty.

It’s not the best of photos that I’ve ever taken, but it serves its purpose as it shows Barker blasting home from ten yards.

Now, the reason why Forest Green were wearing red shirts is because – of course – it is their away kit; their normal home shirts are black and white stripes.

So, I guess it all makes sense then.

Final score: 1-1.

Support from on High

During the second half of the Brighton & Hove Albion vs Blackpool game at Brighton’s Amex Stadium, an RAF Search & Rescue helicopter made a flypast to the amusement and appreciation of the crowd watching below. The game finished a 2-2 draw.

The crew member at the door was wearing a Brighton & Hove Albion team shirt and was holding an Albion scarf above his head.  It’s good to see that the Team has support from on high.

On the side of the aircraft is the motto ’70 Years of Saving Lives’ – a shame they couldn’t save Brighton from the draw, but these men and women certainly deserve our support.   Well done the RAF!

Edit : here’s the video from inside the helicopter on YouTube.
