So my laptop finally gave up, forced me to get a new zoostorm PC - seems fine - had it one day. Light room and PS reinstalled, photo's copied over - now need to hook in the last backup of the LR catalog. Also spent weeks and weeks building a half sunken and half raised pond, Its even got a viewi...


A new growing Polaroid based company, sponsored 8 photographers in the Hoxton gallery.

Happy 2015

Happy 2015 to you. Resolutions are not often my thing, but i've resolved to enter every monthly competition on ePhotozine this year. As, whilst winning would be amazing, its the chance to 'think' about producing the best photo I can each month. I've done my two entries for White this month so a...


When i tried up customise my ephotozine homepage with latest blogs it gave a null as the entry on the page. Maybe no one is writing blogs - apart from this one ;) Perhaps everyone else is too busy as well?

I'm trying to get a higher good photo hit rate and it still seems like its still One step forward and One back. Just at the moment i seem to be getting loads of shooting practice in a diverse range of scenarios, all mostly people which i like. A Muslim wedding last week was full on shooting for ...


We all like to improve and find easy ways to do this, Iíve spent a week or two looking at kit based ideas to achieve some of the wants I have. One is sharper images Ė the answer is better glass, no AA filter and also available now Ė better technique and processing. Another is shallower DOF, the ...

Iíve been comparing my home grown apples with professional oranges and struggling to make them look the same. A constant source of frustration is that the shots I take are not as slick as the glossy magazine shots I want to emulate. So letís listen to the glossy mag proís and see why they are wh...


So this last 2 weeks has been about getting some time to do some more photography activity. With the new giant flash bendable bounce card Paul Morgan suggested ( Rogue flash bender Large) and a eTTL trigger i've been playing quite a bit more of late - not lots of portfolio photos but still lots o...

One photo encouraged me

I've had a bit of time in the last week or so to post process some recent pics and have taken a darker twist to them - this may be to compensate for the fact that most of the images were of pretty flowers. Just for a while Photoshop started to feel easier, almost intuitive - that's a new feeling for...

I seem to have got to a stage (or at least think I have) where producing super photos regularly is still a way off, BUT i seem able to critique some the technical aspects of my photos much better than before. I seem to be struggling to take the next step forward in my improvements and this is actual...


As I seem to be fairly periodic with these blog updates i thought i'd drop one in. The Camera is gathering dust apart from occasional events and shooting the latest cool cake my Mrs bakes. My home projects include DIY & Garden preparing for the spring, and my work projects are key systems upg...

Busy Christmas, Busy New year

It seems hobby time gets ever scarcer - luckily I've a few invites and events i can prioritise to keep me sane and shoot here and there. What i find more and more is that i need to spend time thinking before shooting - i'm just reactive at the moment and really instead need to be more creative bef...

Gone wider not deeper

Itís been a while since blogging last but Iíve been busy not getting better ;) Iíve been trying more of the social and gregarious side of photography with a good few news events and putting myself in new scenarios. A recent exploit was starting this group in surrey [link=www.meetup.com/Woking-St...

So lots of late nights and a few weekends; But now we are in the new office and things are settling back to normal. Still a fair bit of home based activity to catch up on Ė DIY and Frien...
