    More thoughts from the Guest Editor chair

    [photo] There are positive consequences of being Guest Editor, as well as a requirement to spend time online. I’ve adopted the approach that dark_lord mentioned in a response to my earlier blog, and I look at the images full size, not just the thumbn...

    GEA – first impressions

    [photo] Once or twice over the last couple of years friends here at Ephotozine have suggested I try a stint as Guest Editor. I’ve always balked at the idea, because I realized quite a long time ago that I never wanted to be absolutely in charge of a...

    Finding a word for it

    [photo] Language largely consists of nouns (name words) and verbs (doing words), and a standard sentence contains both. But, as a rule, people want to turn a description (such as person-who-takes-pictures) into a new noun (photographer). Giving some...

    Iain T

    [photo] How do you write an obituary for someone you have never met, and who most of the people you are writing for will never have heard of? I know about Iain Thompson because so many models have spoken well of him: a genuinely nice chap, who had f...

    Yorkshire Sculpture Park

    [photo] I rounded off a four night stay in Calderdale with a visit to the Yorkshire sculpture park on the way home. My wife and I agreed to go before we left Hebden bridge and I booked the tickets with my mobile phone. I hate booking things on my m...

    A venture

    [photo] Two years ago, I bought a new car, and one of the less-obvious benefits was a voucher for a portrait session at a local studio – I won’t name it because I’m sure many other businesses do the same thing equally competently. Covid delayed matte...

    Drive carefully - and port to port

    [photo] I remember the maritime rule from a Sixties TV series called Misleading Cases, adapted from stories by AP Herbert. The central character delighted in exploiting the quirks of British law. In the case in question, he explained that a flooded r...

    Graduated filters

    [photo] This is for Hannah, and anyone else who has come across the casual way that a lot of togs talk about one or two types of filter that landscaper photographers use a lot: graduated filters and neutral density filters. A graduated filter is one...

    GEA - day 2

    [photo] I’ve decided how to deal with the idea that one shouldn’t just give awards to one’s friends. Along with GE awards for pictures that I think meet the highest standards, I’m using my own user awards for pictures that are a bit more niche. I d...

    Secondhand bookshops…

    Four nights in Calderdale, and far too many books bought secondhand, including a couple of ‘collectable’ volumes, I suspect. There are impressive bookshops to be found…Times change, and three of the books I brought back show this very clearly indeed....

    Dartmoor Walk 11 Gt Links Tor and The Dunnagoats

    This week I was on my own, I took the Bronica SQ-Ai up to Great Links Tor via Lower and Higher Dunnagoat looking for some compositions for a project I am doing. I was shooting Kodak Portra 160 but replicating the shots on digital with my Fuji X-T2s, ...

    This week we decided to go out to Sourton Tors near Okehampton, they are an interesting set of rocky outcrops that are actually one large Tor despite the plural in the name, however, when we got to the car park we couldn’t see the Tors for the thick ...

    THAT lens

    [photo] Those who share my upbringing, middle-class British, within living memory of two world wars will possibly also share my knowledge of Biggles books and Airfix models. The two were often linked! For those not in the know, James Charles Biggles...

    Where the tune matters more than what you do with

    [photo] I’ve been listening to a Radio 4 Extra programme about ‘light music’ – easy to listen to, and hard to define. We’ve all heard it, even those of us too young to remember the BBC Light Programme, its natural home. Many TV and radio programmes u...

    Dartmoor Walk 12 Holwell Tor from Saddle Tor

    This week I was on my own for a gain, I went out to Holwell Tor from Saddle Tor via Emsworthy Rocks to shoot that lone tree. I took my Fujifilm GFX 50S as well as my X-T2 for those grab shots along the way. The weather was fine but the sky was cloudl...
