Short break
bfgstewAm off to South Lakes Wild Animal Park and the Lakes for a few days, hoping to get some decent animal shots, especially the Giraffes. Plus some nice sunsets, weather permitting. Going to have to catch up on my 365 photo project and my ring flash p...

Day 5: zoom zoom zoom!
discreetphoton I’ve heard it said many times that a piece of equipment needs to facilitate photography, not get in the way of it. I realised today that the 18-270 was small enough that I could try something I’ve wanted to try for a while (my other wide angle z...

Ring flash project update
bfgstewI have found some items to get the flash head going now, simple evryday objects that cost a few quid. A small casserole bowl and a small length of ventilation tubing all for the princely sum of 6.50. Cut a hole in the base of the bowl and the lid to...

6 - 365
bfgstewThe letter 'c' came again by chance, my wife's bracelet laying on a blanket caught my eye. It is amazing how hard it can be to 'open' your eyes to find subjects and this 365 photo project is really helping, I would suggest anybody having a go at i...

Day 4: Making an Impression…
discreetphoton I’ve always loved the work of Monet. The illusion that detail could be created by just a few representative paint daubs. This is something that I like to produce in my photographs, and is one of the reasons that I’ve had a bit of a love affair wit...

Day 3: Totally Forked…
discreetphoton Tried out the close range abilities of the 18-270mm today. The documentation of the lens will tell you that it can focus as closely as 50cm away. In real world terms, this is only about twice the distance from the front lens element to the eyepiec...

Day 2: First outing
discreetphoton A double shift at work today left little time for photography, but I was fortunate enough to have good light on the way to work, and grabbed this on the way through. Hardly an exciting composition, but it served a purpose. I was impressed with the...

Day 1: The cat's out of the bag
discreetphoton Or rather, the box. Today, I officially become a guinea pig. My neighbour dropped off a rather large box when I returned from work, containing a test sample of the Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD. Whilst I got to grips with the lens, my k...

Direction
FrozenMomentsYesterday I did such an amazing shoot! It was the first time I did a shoot with someone I didn't know, but my mum and dad where there. My dad is also a photographer. At first I found it really awkward with her, because I didn't know whether to give h...

NataszaNowakowskaIt don’t matter the way effective your PC happens to be nor how number of memory one has used, continued operation of computer diminishes its speeds thus can eventually slow down timely. We have lots of wherefores why this take place although many ar...
