A Mid-Week Photo Walk with a Difference

Last weekend I headed onto the local moors for a longer walk and some much-needed exercise. When you usual walk around 15-20km over sometimes quite steep ground, walking around the village for an hour doesn’t keep you fit. During the recent restrictions I’ve found my fitness suffering and I’ve noticed my asthma returning so it … Continue reading A Mid-Week Photo Walk with a Difference

I Now Know Where This Is

Last week I shared an infrared image that I’d recently found on my hard drive, but which wasn’t in my image library. This week I’m sharing another image that I shot a short distance from the last one. In fact, if you look at last week’s image, you can see this tree about 100m behind … Continue reading I Now Know Where This Is

I Wish I Could Remember Where I Was

Location unknown. Panasonic GX1 with infrared conversion.

I’ve just been looking through my photo archive when I found a folder I didn’t recognise. Inside were other folders and inside those were thousands of images. Images that I had shot a long time ago using a Panasonic GX1 infrared camera. For some reason I hadn’t imported these files to Lightroom. Wow! Thinking about … Continue reading I Wish I Could Remember Where I Was

Woodland Photography in Summer

Woodland in infrared.

When I think of woodland photography, I tend to think of soft pastel colours and trees shrouded in a thin veil of mist in Autumn. But having recently been bitten (I think this is the fourth time) by the infrared bug, I’m finding the recent sunny days we are enjoying perfect. Woodland in Saddleworth. Infrared … Continue reading Woodland Photography in Summer

The Moors above Saddleworth in Infrared, Fuji X-T2

You’ll need to excuse me this week. The “new toy” effect hasn’t worn off from my infrared converted digital camera so I’m sharing another recent shot. The Moors above Saddleworth in Infrared (click the image to enlarge) You may already have seen this on my Instagram feed but I wanted to share it here because … Continue reading More Digital Infrared Photography

Now Venturing Further Afield

INfrared Fuji XT2 with 16mm lens.

Now we can travel a little, I decided to drive to another area (a full 15 minutes from home) from my daily walk. In truth, I was desperate to try out my newly converted Infrared camera. This is my old Fuji X-T2 which was acting as a backup for my X-T3. If this has you … Continue reading Now Venturing Further Afield

Friday Image No. 142

This week I have come to realise that I’m not getting out to any new locations to photograph. When I do manage to get out, I seem to be repeating many of the scenes and shots I have taken in the past. Or at least that’s the way it feels. This image was taken on … Continue reading Friday Image No. 142

Friday Image No.141

For this week’s Friday image, it’s a shot from my recent trip to Cornwall. I took this whilst walking the coast path. It’s probably about a mile outside Fowey. At the time, the light was very harsh and the images I was shooting on my standard Olympus EM5 weren’t looking very appealing. As is often … Continue reading Friday Image No.141

Friday Image No.136

I’m going to keep this one a short post as its getting very late and I want to pack up for the day. This is another of the tree shots from last weekend. This tree was incredibly photogenic; I don’t know why but I am grateful. It was about the only subject that seemed to … Continue reading Friday Image No.136

Being a Successful Photographer

Yesterday I published an article on my Lenscraft website titled “How to become a Successful Photographer”. If you have 5 minutes to spare I would encourage you to head over to Lenscraft to read it. In writing the article, something occurred to me which is obvious and yet we often lose sight of. What do … Continue reading Being a Successful Photographer
