About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

      No, I never use Photoshop, Sonali. I do have Photoshop Elements, but the only use that I make of this is as a platform for plug-ins, especially Google’s Nik Collection. My initial processing is done with a Nikon programme, Capture NX2. Sometimes this is all I do, but I also use the Nik programmes a lot, especially SEP2 as you know, and also Color Efex Pro 4 and Dfine 2 from time to time. Hope you’re fine, my friend! Adrian

  4. Good grief Adrian – this is first thing on a Saturday morning for me! Only joking of course…a great self portrait 🙂 I like the framing of your face and the grain adds to the intensity.
