    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 don’t...

    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...

    Film. Again. (Last lap of the Chase Challenge)

    While I was off having fun with video and a horse on Wednesday, the postie was dropping off my two rolls of 127 film at home. 127 used to be a popular size, bigger than 35mm frames, but a lot smaller than 120 roll film. When I was young, both Ilford...

    All about patience

    Photography is all about patience. Having got the bug for astrophotography with the visit of Comet Neowise, I have been waiting for the right conditions to photograph the Milky Way. This has proved incredibly frustrating trying to get the right cond...

    Video killed the radio star

    Well, that may be true, but I’m still wedded to the BBC audio output… And yesterday, I discovered why. Again. Now, back in the Sixties, I played with Standard 8mm ciné film, in a succession of cameras: a Kodak Brownie (really, there was a Brownie c...

    The swing gate swings no more

    The swing gate swings no more. Burrator Halt (originally Burrator Platform) was built in 1924 initially to serve the dam workers involved with the dam extension and then opened in 1925 to the public as the area around Burrator Reservoir had become an...

    Setting the Standard

    The humble standard lens was originally set at being the diagonal of the format, give or take. This was the lens that would result in a perspective that was similar to the human eye. I'm not going to dissect what we mean by perspective, but suffice i...

    Ghetto lightbox

    I was discussing light modifiers with a model who also runs a studio, as part of an arts complex. She’s recently bought a single flash unit to go with a couple of cheap LED lights, which have white brollies. We were discussing softboxes, which aren’...

    The One Lens Challenge

    This is another way to focus our skills (really, no pun intended) and make us work just a little harder. A trip out somewhwere, and just one lens. Now we could cheat and choose something like an 18-400mm, or we could get into the spirit of things and...
