A big hello from Dibs in the support team and Photographer outside of the office.

Hi everybody, its Dibs from the Support team, I thought I would get the conversation going and show you what I get up to out of the office.

Photography is my specialist field and I completed a masters degree in the subject in 2018, I am always more than happy help out with anything I can.. Editing techniques, shooting tips or even some camera advice.

My biggest interests are landscapes, architecture and decaying buildings and if I can get all 3 in 1 shot, well that the perfect shot 😍

You can see plenty of my work and what I get up to on my website, I try to keep it as up to date as possible.

I shoot with the Fujifilm X series cameras and use filters for a lot of my work. I have loved using Imerge in testing for some of my personal work, such as with this shot below when we were testing out the Focus stacking, Dynamic contrast and brushes for applying very localised highlight and shadow adjustments to the image. Seeing Imerge develop since I joined the company in January 2019 has been amazing and exciting and its great to now use it in my workflow.

(The location is called Herringfleet Mill and is on the Norfolk and Suffolk border in the UK)

Luckily where I live I am surrounded by stunning coastline with everything including cliffs, piers, sea defences and sandy beaches with amazing sand dunes, so I tend to spend most of my spare time wandering along the coast with my daughter, camera and dog or I am teaching photography or shooting some of my projects.

It would be great to see what you all shoot and to get the conversation flowing with photo talk, so get posting new threads or reply to this one, I would love to see how creative you all are and as I always say on my workshops, there is no such thing as a silly question as long as it is about photography, so feel free to ask

Here are a few of my very recent favourite images from near to the FXhome office, I think these were all taken within the past 2 months.

Sunset at Old Hunstanton, Norfolk. UK

Sunrise at Lowestoft, Suffolk. The most easterly point in the UK.

Sunset at Snettisham Jetty, Norfolk. UK

Take care and I look forward to seeing your work.

    @DibsMcCallum Ah, finally, someone gave this poor, lonely empty forum some love! When I visited Scotland and London (probably before you were born) in 1988 or maybe it was 89 I was obsessed with pictures of castles, old stone bridges and seasides (Well, Firth side 😂) Nice to see some of that again.

    I just got back from holiday and saw this was a empty place crying out for some attention from me 😁

    I love Scotland, its my place of birth. I tend to go there every year to see family and have a bit of photo time as well, plus hopefully once the van is converted maybe even have a few more weekends there too.

    I can't wait to see more Dibs photos, and hopefully some tutorials on how this stuff can be created in Imerge! :)

    @Triem23 wow never seen Southampton looking so SCFI. Better forward this to the BBC locations department for the next Doctor Who series, lovely shot.

    Wow @DibsMcCallum some great shots there. Love the sunrise and sun set long exposure stuff, very magical.

    Dibs I have a selection of photography links on my VFXLists site, might be something of interest.

    Keep clicking.

    @DataDesign repped? Excuse my ignorance, I don't get it.

    I see this on many consumer forums. The OP gets "repped" for a good post. It's just a "like" here. :-)

    @Andy001z They are all handy sites with great news and content, I often find myself going through them and you can end up in some rather cool places reading some fairly decent content by the end of it.
