I Must Stop Worrying About High ISO Settings

Ever since I changed from film to digital photography (around 2003), I’ve always worried about using high ISO settings. Perhaps it’s because the early digital cameras had a lot of limitations. Highlight and shadow clipping looked terrible and as soon as you moved away from the base ISO, your shots would look like they were … Continue reading I Must Stop Worrying About High ISO Settings

A Walk in the Woods of Wales

Earlier this week I was over in Wales, staying at Portmeirion. For those of you who can remember the TV Series “The Prisoner”, Portmeirion was the setting. It was a great place to stay in spite of the weather being very poor. I left home in the snow but by the time I reached Wales … Continue reading A Walk in the Woods of Wales

YouTube Photography Question

I’ll start with another apology for not posting last Friday. I was out of the country visiting my daughter in France and had intended to post this from France. Unfortunately, technology is now so secure that I couldn’t gain access because I was in another country. All attempts to verify myself were met with a … Continue reading YouTube Photography Question

The Unexpected Image

I’ll start with an apology, as I haven’t posted anything for the past two Friday’s. Unfortunately, commitments got the better of me and I was away both days and didn’t have time to schedule a post in advance. Last Friday I was in the Lake District, filming clips for YouTube videos. Whilst there, I had … Continue reading The Unexpected Image

Fortunate Landscape Photography

This past week I was fortunate enough to make a couple of trips out to photograph the landscape. The first of these which was Monday was perhaps the most rewarding because I didn’t head out with photography in mind. It just kind of happened during the day which is a great reward. I originally set … Continue reading Fortunate Landscape Photography

I May Have Solved My Colour Problem

Ever since I started shooting more with my Panasonic G9, I’ve been complaining that the colours don’t look quite right. The problem started with sunsets. When I looked at the images in Lightroom the colours looked somehow false. Yellow and orange seemed a particular problem and often translated into grass that looked a little too … Continue reading I May Have Solved My Colour Problem

Having a Second Stab at the Heather

Last week I shared one of my images from an outing to Surprise View in the Peak District. That image was captured with the Excellent Fuji XT3 and Fuji 10-24mm lens. This week I managed a return visit to the same area but decided to take the Panasonic G9. Although I didn’t intend to shoot … Continue reading Having a Second Stab at the Heather

Rescued by Topaz – Again!

I haven’t been able to do any photography this past week. I changed cars a couple of weeks back and the transaction hasn’t exactly gone smoothly shall we say. But whilst I’ve been sorting out a few of the lose ends, I’ve also been processing my recent shots with the Panasonic G9, ready for stock … Continue reading Rescued by Topaz – Again!

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

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
