    Relative quality

    Itís a topic that keeps coming up wherever two photographers meet. Whatís the better lens? Which camera is easiest to use for sport? Itís a controversial issue in most parts of our lives. We tend to think in terms of wanting Ďthe bestí without thin...

    Freshers Week

    It's that time of year when students arrive at university. Especially as the Covid-19 pandemic has been a curved ball this year I'd recommend people make a historical record. I doubt many people recorded any, or much, of their initial time at univer...

    Wherever the winds blow

    I wasnít planning to blog today, because Iíve been shooting Ė but then I thought that the pictures Iíd shot might be a way into some interesting thoughts. I was working with a model Iíve photographed a couple of times before: sheís bought herself a...

    110 Months On for Project Decay!

    Well, who could have guessed that over nine years ago I started my project Decay, selecting a non-functional Pentax MG and popping it out into the garden to see how nature might make it its own. In the event, it tells us instead that plastics don't d...

    Catch it while you can

    Transience is a regret for almost everyone, almost all the time. We long for this or that as it used to beÖ A lost amenity for me is a fire escape at a local studio Ė you used to be able to get in there, and switch off all the lights, using small fl...

    The winnable competition

    One of the things that differentiates photographers is what makes them tick. Some shoot for art, some to record beautiful, memorable or important things. Others are in it to win itÖ I donít like compiling lists of the ten best pop songs EVER. Iíd r...

    Lockdown Photography

    During lockdown I dug out my water drop kit and started to play with it again. Some of the shapes achieved are amazing and not visible to the naked eye. Water-drop collision photography is fascinating and not easy. I use a single valve water-dro...

    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...

    BCC

    Itís more than a decade since one of the best and most influential photographers of women died, and itís surprising that heís not better known. Bob Carlos Clarke first came to general notice in the late Seventies, shooting glossy monochrome images w...

    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...
