    A New Look in an Old Style

    The idea of mixing shooting colour with black and white never gelled with me. The thinking process of the two is different. So when I want to shoot black and white I set the camera to Monochrome JPEG capture, adjusting the parameters to suit my style...

    Shooting to an agenda

    The joy of being an amateur is that nobody provides a list of shots that HAVE to be taken. (If you’ve ever agreed to do a wedding album for a friend who’s marrying on a shoestring, you’ll understand just how good that is!) Professionals have limited...

    A Benevolent Queen

    I have mentioned Queen Alexandra, Queen to King Edward VII, before in the context of her book for charity "Queen Alexandra's Christmas Gift Book - Photographs from my Camera". The book was published by the Daily Telegraph in 1908 and there are usual...

    A stands for aeroplane

    My first hobby was aeromodelling, a result of reading just about every single Biggles book by the time I was ten. Making (and regularly breaking) balsa and tissue aircraft only receded when I discovered developing and printing, which was less genera...

    How Deep Is Your Love?

    This is a more personal blog today, featuring my recently passed Brother-in-law Mark, known on EPZ as MarkScollon, who recently suffered a massive and fatal heart attack at just 52 years old. I thought I would celebrate the beginnings of his happy ma...

    Clouseau returns

    A cardboard box that has sat under my computer table for several years has yielded treasure, of various sorts… Including, appropriately, an old-fashioned telescope, me hearties! But more to the point on a Silly Sunday, there’s a once-popular accesso...

    I've been looking for this for a while and today I opened a box and there it was, somewhere safe. Putting things somewhere safe is usually a guarantee that they cannot be found. This small brass box is actually an original, not one of the later copie...

    Stop just short of infinity

    I’ve built a good few of these blogs around what you might call ‘interesting cameras’ – the sort of thing that you may have seen once in a large secondhand window, or perhaps an eccentric friend had one once. (I am that eccentric friend: and it was ...

    Sharpness, Does It Matter?

    Sharp images are what most of us strive for and indeed are encouraged by a variety sources from advertisements of the latest lenses to picture library editors. On the whole I like to see something sharp in an image as the focal point to draw me in a...

    Tweet the sonnet

    I like summaries. But sometimes, they just don’t work… Imagine your favourite piece of music reduced to a single chorus or passage, or Line of Duty as a single episode. There’s a book that sets out the plot of all Shakespeare’s plays in two or three...

    Lines, Angles and Shapes

    One of my early photographic infuences actually came from watching "The Avengers" on TV in the 1960s. It was very imaginative with shots lined up with the same sort of care that we would expect from a still image. It's worth looking up some old episo...

    We shall not see their like again

    It’s a phrase we sometimes hear when somebody wants us to share a nostalgia they feel, and which they realise that we may not be particularly interested in. When I talked to my wife about the subject in my lead picture (and my gallery post today), s...

    Lenses to Capture Birds By

    When shooting birds I generally am using either the SMC Pentax-DA 55-300mm (APS-C format) or the SMC Pentax-FA J 73-300mm (Full Frame). This is probably long enough for most subjects, but for a more dedicated trip I would also use the HD Pentax-D FA ...

    Always on her mobile – but does she want to be on

    Keith (Dark_Lord to those who don’t know him) posed a question about mobiles and models, and how the latter react to being photographed with the former. As it goes, I’d asked a few about this, very specifically, after EPZ published my article on usi...
