Friday Image No.155

It’s been another very long week and the weather hasn’t helped. The storm at the start of the week put paid to any ideas I had of photography. I have though been using the time productively to work on a video courses; I promised I would develop one on masking to go with my latest … Continue reading Friday Image No.155

New Peak District Photo Locations

I’m a huge fan of Photo Location books. They take away a lot of guess work from visiting a new area and allow you to concentrate on your photography. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for new guides and when I find a good one I like to let people know. This latest guide … Continue reading New Peak District Photo Locations

I Just Realised it’s Thursday

I just realised it’s Thursday and I haven’t posted anything all week. Where has the week gone.

That's what I love about the … Continue reading Friday Image No.147

Please don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t like Sony, it’s that I’ve always had problems with their products and service. Despite this, my Sony RX 10 and Sony A7R excellent cameras. The Sony … Continue reading Sony – Setting the Record Straight

Friday Image No.144

I captured this image last weekend in the Peak District. The day had started with fog then turned to sun and then finally rain. There didn’t seem to be much point shooting so we wandered up to Stanage Edge.  Despite visiting the area many times, I have never been to Stanage Edge. I’m now certain … Continue reading Friday Image No.144
