A Photo Day Trip to Blackpool

Earlier this week, Tuesday to be precise, I headed over to Blackpool with a friend. Blackpool is a great location for photography and often produces amazing sunsets at this time of year. As the conditions looked promising, we thought this would be worth trying. Whilst I enjoyed the morning, my shots weren’t up to much. … Continue reading A Photo Day Trip to Blackpool

When Photography Becomes Rewarding Again

This week, I’ve been looking back at some of my old images from 2011. This has been rewarding for a couple of reasons: I was finding new images that I liked but which I previously haven’t processed.I found myself remembering my excitement when capturing a wonderful scene. This shot at dawn, of the mist rolling … Continue reading When Photography Becomes Rewarding Again

Back From Yet Another Break

Life is getting back to normal here after the last could of years. I know this because I’ve found my time is continuously squeezed by needing to break off for various holidays and trips that backed up over the past 2 years. Now that I can finally take a holiday, I don’t feel that I … Continue reading Back From Yet Another Break

Landscape Photography and the Unexpected

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
