About John Stirling
John Stirling is a retired School Headteacher and Photographer
His photographs capture ‘a fraction of a second in the ‘timeline’ of the locations he shoots’, and he includes such items as overhead cables, pylons, people, vehicles etc.
Many of his photographs are taken using long focal length lenses rather than wide angle because he has always liked the impact that these give to his photographs, particularly with buildings.
John uses post processing for two reasons. The first of these is to ensure the most accurate exposure; in terms of light, colour and contrast. The second is to present the image ‘as he saw it with his own eyes’; adjusting perspective, horizontal positioning and cropping. This processing gives the best possible accuracy, outcome and quality to his images.
John currently uses a Canon EOS 5D MKII camera. This is used with Canon EF 70-200 f2.8L IS II USM and Canon 24-70 f2.8L II USM lenses. John uses Adobe Photoshop for post processing.
Through his website, photo blog and the Internet, John is pleased to be able to display his work to visitors.
He hopes you enjoy his photography…
