    Those That Survive

    Backups. When we used film, in those halcyon days at the dawn of time, we didn't worry about backing up our images. We might not even have kept the negatives, although I always did. Ironically, the only damaged negatives I ever had were my Four Seaso...

    Muddled message

    Iíve just looked at a picture that is supposed to be highly symbolic. It is, but what I canít work out is what it symbolises Ė whether itís ironic, or seriously meant. Anyway, I gave it a miss with the vote button. Iím currently racing through a boo...

    Vintage Vehicular Views

    On our way to Sizergh Castle we pass the South Lakes Motor Museum. This is a great place to visit, to see again all those old cars, all the smaller artefacts and even the posters on the walls. It all reminds me of when I was growing up in Irlams o' t...

    Places - Muncaster Castle

    Apart from a terrible temptation to call it Munster Castle, Muncaster is a gorgeous house in extensive grounds. There are woodlands to explore and as a bonus around 4pm dozens of herons descend on the trees around the main building. When we visited t...

    Secrets of the Tower

    It's always great to arrange access to places where people don't normally go, and it's not particularly difficult to do. It needs a bit of negotiation with the right person and, of course, a reason for the whole thing to happen. A camera club is idea...

    Feel the width Ė never mind the quality

    For the marketing people, itís very annoying that Ė just sometimes Ė people try before they buy. It drives a coach and horses through any hype about biggest/smallest, widest zoom range, highest ISO and everything else of that sort. Pick up a camera...

    A Kodak Instamatic and Kodachrome 64

    Transparency film is very critical to exposure so how could I get on with it as a novice using a very simple camera in the 1970s? Surprisingly well as it turned out. My first camera was a Kodak 126 Instamatic I was given as a present for Christmas 1...

    Advanced Coronation Techniques

    We need go no further for our advanced education on the techniques for shooting coronations than the AP issue dated 12th June 1911. In this case we are of course meaning the coronation of King George V. The first good advice is that we should not ere...

    Wonderful Weston

    You might be thinking this will be about someone called Edward, or Cole, or Brett, and will involve nudes and peppers. No. Not today. This is a very British Weston, my first light meter, and still my favourite, a Weston Master V, complete with leat...

    The George Best Problem

    It appears in all walks of life, all professions and hobbies: the essence of it is that if you excel at something, you will be expected to live up to your reputation, to continue to shine, for the rest of your life. People who have become fans donít...

    New Discoveries and Old Favourites

    When we are very familar with a place there's always the danger that we night take it for granted and effectively stop looking. Photographers know better though as we can always search for and find new variations. One such place for me is Astley Gree...

    The shot not taken

    A couple of days ago, my friend Peter (handlerstudio) made a comment about the camera that you have with you (always the best camera), and the occasions when we have no cameras at all with us, and cannot take the picture. Peter suggested a blog on ...

    A Sign of the Times

    Last night a few ADAPS members went on a stroll around Pennington Flash, all nicely socially separated in a huge open area! A flash is a lake, caused by mining subsidence, and Pennington Flash is a huge lake, very popular locally. A sign of the times...
