Switching Back to Fuji

Last night, I met up with an old friend on Stanage Edge in the Peak District. The intention was to shoot the sunset, as the sun was due to set just to the side of the edge. If the weather played it’s part, the light on the edge would be spectacular. Often when that’s happened, … Continue reading Switching Back to Fuji

Panasonic Lumix G9 Images

After my month spent shooting with the Panasonic Lumix G9 I felt quite positive about the experience. Now that I’ve spent more time editing some of the RAW files I shot whilst in Cornwall, I’m feeling even more positive. Previously I’d reported that I didn’t like the colour of the images and couldn’t seem to … Continue reading Panasonic Lumix G9 Images

The Return of Topaz Adjust AI

Since updating my Mac to the Big Sur OS, I haven’t been able to use Topaz Adjust AI. This week I discovered there is a new release of Topaz Adjust that works on the Mac Big Sur OS. Although it’s not an application I use a lot, it’s very useful for making quick improvements to … Continue reading The Return of Topaz Adjust AI

Panasonic G9 and the Break is Over

You may have noticed that I haven’t posted anything for a couple of weeks. The reason for this is that I’ve been on one of those rare things called a holiday. I feel extremely fortunate to have been away in St Ives, Cornwall having booked this a long time ago. What I didn’t know when … Continue reading Panasonic G9 and the Break is Over

More Panasonic G9 Photography

It was a bit last minute, but I met up with a friend last night in the Peak District. I took along the Panasonic G9 to continue my re-immersion into the world of micro 43. As usual, it didn’t go entirely to plan but there was a brief period of 5-10 minutes where the clouds … Continue reading More Panasonic G9 Photography

Update on my Micro 43 Challenge

Last week I spoke about my overlooked Panasonic G9 micro 43 kit and how I was challenging myself to shoot with it through June. Well, I may have failed depending on how pure you view my challenge. You see the weather here has been hot, dry, and sunny for the past week. This has caused … Continue reading Update on my Micro 43 Challenge

My Overlooked Landscape Photography Kit

Last weekend I drove to the Lake District to meet a friend and shoot around some of the peaks around Borrowdale. Our first climb wasn’t a long one. The entire circuit was only 3.5 miles, but it was steep both up and back down. At the end of the day, I think we had clocked … Continue reading My Overlooked Landscape Photography Kit

Skills Playing Catchup

Have you ever felt like one element of your photography runs away from the rest? This seems to be a constant problem for me, and this image is a great example. New Brighton Lighthouse, Wallasy. I shot this image in 2014 with my Olympus EM5 micro 43 camera and the Olympus 12-40 lens at 12mm. … Continue reading Skills Playing Catchup

It’s Only Taken me 20 Years

This week I did something that I’ve never done before and which I’ve been meaning to do for 20 years. I photographed the sunset on Standedge near where I live. It took me all of 5 minutes to drive to the parking to meet a friend. Despite this location being so close, and that I … Continue reading It’s Only Taken me 20 Years
