Friday image No.010


As some of you may already have gathered, I love Infrared Photography. It's much more frustrating than traditional photography to create good images but the challenge makes it more rewarding. It also opens up a new world of seeing as scenes can take on a completely different appearance. Also, when the time of day or [...]

Something for Nothing


Photography has been through a very odd transformation over the past 10 years. In the pre-digital era good photographs were relatively rare from amongst the amateur community. Also equipment (I mean really good equipment) cost a fortune and wasn't really affordable by amateurs. Sure there were a few talented people but most images evidenced problems. [...]

Friday image No.009

The Sony has smooth images with very limited noise that doesn’t get exaggerated when the images are processed. The colours from [...]

RX100 V’s LX5 and LX7 – Part 1

Another image from my recent Yorkshire Dales trip. This was also taken on the first morning and is perhaps my favourite image from that day. I feel the quality of light is amazingly strong in this image. The light quality is often better in the morning than the evening as there is less dust in [...]

Bad Weather Photography


Last week I wrote about how I visited Blackpool to photograph the storms when the bad weather hit. In case you weren’t aware, the UK has been hit by a series of storms for some 8 weeks now (usually a couple each week). Each storm brings huge amounts of rain (for the UK at least), [...]
