External Links from Martin Henson Photography

Here you will find links to various areas on the Net that I feel are good for learning and viewing all things photography. Predominantly most are to do with monochrome but not all, if you would like a link added here please contact me and I will view and consider adding it to this page.

The Black and White learning forum
This site was set up a few years back by myself and is for learning the Art of monochrome, you can post pictures for constructive criticism, ask questions about all things related to mono conversion. There is also a weekly competition and a themed monthly one, the site is a friendly place and quite unique, it’s free to join so why not sign up and see for yourself.

Tim Hill, Landscape/seascape photographer from Pontefract, West Yorkshire, England.
I am predominantly a landscape/seascape photographer but can turn my hand to many other aspects of photography. Equally, I am competent with and love using Lightroom, Photoshop, Luminar (to name but a few), to really take images to a place you would not expect.

Gerard Oostermeijer
Quote" As much as my work as plant population ecologist and conservation biologist allows, I am outside enjoying nature and, whenever I discover something there that speaks to me, I try to capture its spirit in a photograph. Translating my feelings about a landscape or a small natural object into a meaningful image is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling parts of my life."

Striking mono images from this man who loves to create a different look.

Monochrome Journey
Leon Leijdekkers attended one of my workshops, Leons love for mono was so apparent that day, what was missing for him was a direction and style, through sheer hard work, Leon has arrived there. His web site shows a distinctive style using light texture and shade to simplify our landscape. Well worth a look at his style and compositional simplicity that produces stunning landscape and interior shots.

Ansel Adams
A great site for this remarkable man, here you can view the famous images produced by him, read his biography and purchase images.
