Albert W ?

Can you identify this man, believed to be a Corporal in the Royal Army Ordnance Corps around 1920

This photo features an English soldier together with his French partner taken at Le Havre.

Their daughter is now a grandmother in her 80’s and would like to know what happened to her father. She was born after his return to England and all we know is that his name was Albert W ? and he was a Corporal in the Royal Army Ordnance Corps around 1920.

He returned to France a few years later to visit them but after this contact was lost.

If you recognised this photo please contact me as his daughter would be pleased to have any information.

Unknown Sailor

Do you recognise this unknown sailor believed to be from the Hillfields area of Coventry?

This unknown Sailor was probably from Coventry, his girlfriend and her family lived in the Hillfields area of the city.

He was killed in the First World War. His name may be unknown but we do know that he sailed on the HMS Tipperary as his cap ribbon is still in the possession of his girlfriend’s family. HMS Tipperary was sunk by gunfire on 1st July 1916 during the Battle of Jutland and this may be when he died. However family stories have it that he died on the Lusitania.

Any help would be much appreciated.

The Photographer's Eye Remastered 10th Anniversary: Composition and Design for Better Digital Photographs by Michael Freeman

With a completely refreshed look to celebrate its tenth anniversary, Michael Freeman's iconic bestseller, The Photographer's Eye, has never looked better. Design is the single most important factor in creating a successful photograph. The ability to see the potential for a strong picture and then organize the graphic elements into an effective, compelling composition has always been one of the key skills in making photographs.

Of course, digital photography has brought a new, exciting aspect to design first because the instant feedback from a digital camera allows immediate appraisal and improvement; and second because image-editing tools make it possible to alter and enhance the design after the shutter has been pressed. This has had a profound effect on the way digital photographers take pictures.

The Photographers Eye shows how anyone can develop an eye for seeing great digital photos. The book explores all the traditional approaches to composition and design, but crucially, it also addresses the new digital technique of shooting in the knowledge that a picture will later be edited, manipulated, or montaged to result in a final image that may be very different from the one seen in the viewfinder.
