Day 204: Da-dumÖDa-dumÖ.

discreetphoton Iíve been working some pretty long hours since I started my new placement, so Iíve had to be creative today. I didnít realise we had so many serrated knives. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 270mm; ISO 200; F/9; 1/160s. VC on.

discreetphoton A close-up image of one of our table lamps tonight, since I managed to sleep my afternoon away. I canít even begin to explain how busy my week has been. Itís all been a bit of a blur. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 78mm; ISO 200; F/8; 1/30s. VC on.

Day 188: Angelfish

discreetphoton I spent most of my day hoping to get a glimpse of a kingfisher that didnít show. You canít win them all. Maybe Iím the only one who saw the shape of a fish in these plant stems. Maybe solitary confinement made me nuts. Clearly birdwatching is not for me. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @...

Project 365-173

CaptivePhotonsA day off today and rather than stay in and vegetate I took a trian ride to Hastings, primarily to take a look around the old junk shops but also a trip to the beach where they have all the fishing vessels. I settled on this one for today's pic. Bigger pic here

Day 127: Volcano

discreetphoton Not really, but it did remind me of 2010?s flight disruption. Admittedly I should get out more. Gotta love bubble wrap though. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 60mm; ISO 200; F/8; 1/80s. VC on.

discreetphoton Drinking like a fish Önot really, but I do have a leisurely weekend planned, so Iíll be needing my corkscrew. White balance was manually set to throw a blue colour into the shot, and I used the ripples in our upholstery as a backdrop to enhance the mood. Lens creep could have been an...

Day 95: Lava lamp

discreetphoton Lava lamp Iíve been doing the finishing touches on the decorating I was doing last week, so Iíve stuck close to home today, as the weatherís been plotting against me again. Iíve had this lamp since I was seventeen. I think itís overdue for a new bottle, as the liquidís faded and thereís...

Day 88: The power of suggestion

discreetphoton As photographers, we often get hung up on the technicalities of a shot, forgetting whatís important about what weíre taking, and why. I think Iím guilty of this more than most, and largely itís down to my competitive streak. This was taken only minutes after I woke up this morning. Itís no ...

Day 58: Kitchen pastels

discreetphoton Kitchen pastels I played about with various close-ups of some cupcake trays this evening, for no other reason than I like the colours. Iím still really impressed by the close-up capabilities of the 18-270, and have great fun exploring the possibilities that the zoom range provides. Iím p...

Day 48: Spooning

discreetphoton Spooning A little play with light and shade, using a close-up dioptre on the 18-270 to really focus on the shapes created. I do enjoy doing these sorts of abstract imagery. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm @ 270mm; 200 ISO; f/9; 1/50 second. VC off.

Photo365 - 280 - Paint abstract

PeteA tin of purple paint with the lid off. The light caught the rime and scattered across the paint creating an interesting abstract pattern that I thought was worth recording. Pentax K20D and 100mm macro lens.

Day 38: Streaking

discreetphoton Todayís entry is a little experiment in colour, made up of a few colouring pencils. Nothing technically difficult, just something a little different to brighten up what has been a rather grey (if still very warm) day. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm @ 270mm; ISO 400; F/8; 0.4 seconds. VC on.

PeteI bought a Micro 4/3rd to T2 adaptor to use on my Olympus E-P2 the other day. I was messing around with different lenses and added a El Nikkor 50mm f/4 enlarging lens on the front. I just held it in place and it provided a very close focus. Infinity was way out of focus. I could move it forwards to ...

Photo365 - 220 - abstract

PeteI was experimenting with the Olympus EP2 by placing a Pentax macro lens in front. Not connected just butted up to the body. It gave a fairly decent shot with little loss in contrast. I then turned the lens round so the filter thread was flush to the lens mount and by accident picked up the light fro...
