"I try to make interesting subjects more interesting" - Me

Mike Watson:  An enthusiastic amateur

Landscape, Travel, Night, Urban, and Black & White photography

I am Mike Watson and I thank you for visiting my website. I am now shooting with a Fujifilm X-T2. I have recently become a great fan of producing photographic travelogues and I hope that when people view my albums they will get a sense of the fascinating and beautiful places I have visited. I am also trying to maintain my goal of "making interesting subjects more interesting".

I strive to get it right in the camera.  I understand Photoshop and Lightroom, and I experiment with applying creative digital dark room techniques to make my images more interesting. 

One of my images, "Its Just Another Day" selected as an Editors Favorite Submission in the 2018 National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year contest.
