More Dull Weather Photography

This week, I want to share a final image from my recent dull weather photography video on YouTube. This time the image is in black and white rather than colour. View at The Roaches I shot this using the Fuji XT3 together with the Fuji 10-24 mm lens at 14 mm. The exposure was a … Continue reading More Dull Weather Photography

Creating a New Angle in Your Photography

Recently I met a friend in the Lake District for some photography. After a good start the light became too harsh, so we waited it out whilst drinking coffee and eating cake. We did though have a plan. We wanted to be on top of a hill called Tom Heights at the end of the … Continue reading Creating a New Angle in Your Photography

Photo Popularity and Instagram

Last week I posted an image from a long walk that I did in the Peak District. I suspect the shot of the landscape may not have connected with many people. It’s taken me a long time to appreciate the area and I live here. With that in mind, here’s another shot from that walk … Continue reading Photo Popularity and Instagram

Heather in the Peak District

This is one of my favourite times of year for landscape photography in the Peak District, because the heather is in flower. On Tuesday evening I made it over to Surprise View to meet a friend with the intention of checking how the heather was doing. As it turned out all the recent sun and … Continue reading Heather in the Peak District

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

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
