    52 for 2021 Week 9

    Once again, out for the Saturday exercise walk, same route (for now) from the house and back to stay within the rules. I found this Lonely Daffodil struggling to survive almost overshadowed by the fallen tree. This time I was out with my Leica M9s th...

    Default setting

    Sunday is often a comfortable, stay-at-home sort of a day. Depending on the season, a comfy chair in front of the TV, or a comfortable seat in the garden. Itís a comfort zone. So letís talk about our photographic comfort zones, before itís Monday, a...

    Competition Time: Portraits

    Probably portraits are one of the most vulnerable types of images from the point of view of camera club judging. There are so many variables possible, so many "rules" that can be invoked, so much depending perhaps in some cases as to whether the view...

    Art, snap or reportage

    Yet again, Iím indebted to Phil Taylor for todayís text and pictures - heís picked up the art/reportage/or what debate with some genre-blurring shots from a decade and a half ago. A journalist friend from my local paper has recently taken up cov...

    How Many???

    As I was sorting out my gear the other day, my better half asked me ďHow many cameras have you actually gotĒ? This could be a leading question, like the time she asked how many guitars I really needed. ďWell, just the two dear, Oh, I forgot 3, thoug...

    Six of the Best at Ena Mill

    One of the best model shoots we have run for ADAPS was the Sunday shoot at Ena Mill in Atherton. A few years ago now, and something that we should look at again when we can. Ena Mill is a wonderful old mill, the ground floor of which is a superb reta...

    Full spectrum

    For several years, Iíve had a Lumix camera that has been converted to infrared, which Iíve used for portraits, figure work and even, occasionally, landscapes. Itís been interesting, and the results have been great, but almost as soon as Iíd had it d...

    Competition Time: Monochrome

    There are many ways to make monochrome images, which although we may usually mean black and white can also mean all sorts of toning techniques, such as Sepia, Gold, Selenium, Blue.....and so on. These all originate in principle with film and paper pr...

    Keeping it simple and spurious accuracy

    Have you noticed that I like gadgets? This one is old-fashioned and ingenious, and could be a big help with exposure, if you can find one. There arenít too many left, I imagine. Itís from the days before built-in exposure meters, and the idea probab...

    What Does Better Mean?

    I am thinking in terms of lenses. What is better? Sharper? Faster? Longer focal length? Wider focal length? In a technical sense the answer is probably relatively easy - a lens that passes the technical measurement tests is the better lens. It may ha...

    Male nudes and male gaze

    Iíve had some interesting exchanges of correspondence with other members lately, and thatís shaping my blog quite frequently. Thanks to all the people with provocative views and intriguing questions! Now, my comfort zone, photographically, involves a...

    Competition Time: Creative

    I found a folder containing a set of images that I used as my entry for a camera club (ADAPS of course) annual competition, so I thought we'd look at these a section at a time. Not necessarily one after another each day, but over a period of time. ...

    Keep it tight Ė or maybe keep it loose?

    Iíve been reading that Andrew Loomis book againÖ And what he wrote half a century ago is rather contrary to some of the ideas around in photographic circles. ĎKeep it tightí somehow smacks of Full Metal Jacket and Platoon: images of young men traine...

    Future Past at Arley Hall

    We'll be back to Arley Hall soon, and hopefully by April. When we get there in April, it will look very much like the shots I include today, which were shot in April, just not April this year. They were taken with the tiny Pentax I-10 when Sue and I ...

    Back to Skool

    I've been reading the blogs for a while and commented on a couple but never really thought about writing my own. Today I thought I'd have a go and give an insight into the strange isolated world I inhabit. (I've been more or less living the lifestyle...
