The Who

The True Shot Photography of Barry Semple


Barry Semple

The photography within this site is based on the belief that nature has already created the most beautiful scenes and colours that can exist, editing a photograph cannot improve on what nature has created.  The True Shot images portray the true scene as the human eye sees it, any enhancement is via the practiced use of the camera and photographic equipment such as filters and specialty lenses.

I neither own nor use photo editing software such as PhotoShop, this type of image manipulation is more akin to ‘digital art’ than ‘digital photography’. If my images are enhanced it is only via minimal use of Nikon Capture NX2 software which allows the correction of exposure, contrast, white balance and lens/sensor anomalies.

Every one of my photographs could be taken with a 35mm or digital camera, the use of digital is for convenience of publishing, not because it is critical to the end result. Through strong belief in honest photography and enhancement via  continual practice, my photography continues to produce results which are The True Shot.

All of the images within this site are available for purchase in photographic print, gallery canvas, metal sheet print or acrylic print.  Please contact me with any enquiries.
