Photo365 - 8 - Local History

Inspired by ePHOTOzine member Ade McFade's passion for photographing the architecture of Leeds and surround areas I decided to do the same in my local region starting in my home town of Worksop. This shot is down a street near the town centre that I only discovered the other day and I've been here f...

Photo365 - 7 - The Olympus EP2

Today I have been playing around with an Olympus EP2. It's the new rangefinder style comapct with interchangeable lenses, much smaller than an SLR. I don't know about you but the first day is spent fiddling around with the features, and i was eager to try the ART modes. They need suitable subjects a...

Photo365 - 6 - Asparagus

Today I have photographed asparagus. I've never been keen on it as a food, but I was in the supermarket last night looking at clinically perfect peppers and saw bunches of asparagus and thought - kill two new year resolutions with one stone - more photography and more cooking. The peppers didn't hav...

Today I took a trip down memory lane and photographed objects against a Venetian blind. The last time I did this seriously was back in the 80s in a terraced house I lived in. I shot them on Hassleblad and they were some of may favourite shots. So today I recreated that experience using a modern...

Today's project is another version of cross polarisation I've been doing a bit of lately. In this example I turned my LCD computer screen on its back facing upwards. This became the base for a collection of cheap disposable shot glasses (1 for 40 from Poundland). I arranged them in a pattern, edged...

Today's entry for my Photo365 project was inspired by the ePHOTOzine Black & White group who've set there weekly B&W challenge with the theme flowers. I decided to dismantle the Christmas flower display that was wilted after a week of intense heat from central heating and fireplace. And pull...

Photo365 - 2 - Riverlin Valley

Well the family decided to go to the shops and one of my resolutions was to shop less. So I decided to fulfil another resolution to go walking more. I packed up a sarnie, drink, few nibbles, got my boots out, coat, hat, gloves, super warm ePHOTOzine fleece and camera. I decided to go to Win Hill...

Photo365 - 1 - Oil on Water

Here's my first shot for my new Photo 365 Project taken tonight. I've been meaning to get round to photographing oil on water after reading Alison's Photo Month article on ePHOTOzine: Oil on Water. New Years Day saw me lethargic from a previous night of celebrations so it seemed like the perfect ti...

New Year Resolutions

Like most people I make New Year Resolutions every year, but I don't normally have a photography one. This year, as well as the usual eat less, get fitter ideas, I intend to get out and about more and to take a photo a day with my new Photo365 project. With this project I aim to join in more ePHOTOz...

We all no doubt have stuff we no longer want...even if we don't realise it. I was having a sort out in the garage the other day. I'm not very good at it. I usually just rearrange things! I believe most men are the same. I came across my box of toys from when I was about 8 (the box is the case fr...

The Great Photographers

I've been reading a book about historical photographers and something sprung to mind. Names like Frederick H Evans, Eugene Atget, Alfred Stieglitz, Andre Kertesz etc, that appear in all the history books, were all amateur photographers, many in camera clubs, many submitted photos to magazines of the...

Familiar software

If you're like me you get into a habit of using the same software year after year. I use Photoshop and Lightroom and only visit others when I have a review to do or a tutorial. When I use other software I often realise why I stick with what I know, but occasionally I see a feature that makes me wish...

Another one ticked off

I decided early in the new year to go to places I haven't been to in the UK. Yesterday was Spurn Head or Spurn Point as it's also know. A two hour drive and well worth it. It was quite an experience on the three mile approach driving on a bumpy brick cobbled road for quite a stretch with sand at eit...

View through the Macro lens

I just wonder if anyone else has the same experience as I do when looking through a macro lens. I tend to lay down on the floor for much of my macro work, with the camera as close to the ground as possible. It's while I'm in this position and the eye to the viewfinder that I gain a certain pleas...
