Returning to the 18-135 Lens

When I purchased my first Fuji camera (an XT1 which has since been sold), I bought a used 18-135 Fuji lens to accompany it. At the time, I was apprehensive because a lot of the lens reviews said the lens was poor and not of the usual Fuji quality. Despite this I pushed ahead and … Continue reading Returning to the 18-135 Lens

Friday Image No. 128

If you have been watching my You Tube channel, you may have seen this image already. It’s 3 images shot with the Fuji X-T2 which were stitched together in Lightroom. I then processed them using Nik Silver Efex Pro and a Film Noire preset. The results looked a little too strong for my taste so … Continue reading Friday Image No. 128

The light was quite poor being high in the sky and blue from the presence of all the cloud. Here is … Continue reading Friday Image No. 112

Landscape Photography is Frustrating

I mentioned on Friday’s blog post that I was heading out for an early morning shoot the following day. At the time the weather forecast appeared to be little hit or miss. The intention was to shoot Winnats Pass in the Peak District. I was meeting a couple of friends there and to be honest … Continue reading Landscape Photography is Frustrating

Friday Image No. 104

Although I love a good sunrise or sunset, it’s not my favourite light to photograph. I actually much prefer a low warm sun that provides a lovely warm side light. If you couple that with flowering heather and vibrant green ferns blowing in a breeze you have my perfect scene. Whilst I struggled a little … Continue reading Friday Image No. 104
