Dave_HendersonSpent an hour or two this morning experimenting with the flash. I have a sigma ring flash that has been in the cupboard for years, forgot I had it, bought it years ago when in my macro phase, will have to get it used this week on a few weeds. I may have a trip to the florist and see what kind of del...

Day 218: Spokes

discreetphoton Another day on the bike, but I didnít take any photos while I was out, so I opted for another detail shot on return. This was another one of those shots where I considered the focal length to use first, needing a wide angle and minimal distortion. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 60mm; ISO ...

discreetphoton This was the only photograph I took today, and it really reminded me of a glass sheet hologram that I gave to my dad one fatherís day. However, part of the reason for that can be seen in the petal in the rear left of the photograph. If you look closely, you can see a bit of chromatic abberatio...

Day 207: Chocolate galore

discreetphoton I was brought this selection of tasty treats today after my fiancťe returned from a trip to Cadbury World in Birmingham. Which made up for not being able to go myself! Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 270mm; ISO 200; F/7.1; 1/100s. VC on.

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.

Day 201: On the move again

discreetphoton Iíve barely stopped for the last few days, what with my recent secondment starting, and planning various things for the local Photographic Society. Tonight I displayed some on my older work, and it seemed to go down well. I was rather rushed though, so you get this detail shot of my laptop bag. ...

Day 199: Farewell and adieu

discreetphoton Todayís photograph is of a gift given to me by a friend at work. Iíve had a very sudden change of location within the same company which Iím hoping will be a very good opportunity for me. In many ways Iím sad to be leaving though, as itís been a wonderful place to spend the last year, and Iím blo...

discreetphoton This is a collection of some the State quarters that I accumulated before leaving the US a few years ago. Unfortunately there were another ten circulated after I left, so Iíve not got the full set. However, I do have one for each of the eleven states I have set foot in, so thatís something at lea...

Day 197: Aston Martin

discreetphoton The Aston Martin DB9 is one of my favourite cars of all time. Itís a beautiful piece of engineering, and Iím proud to say I own this one. Unfortunately, Iíve got no chance of driving it, seeing as itís only a few inches long Still, a guy can dream. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 100mm; ISO...

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 192: Fruit pastilles

discreetphoton Look tasty, donít they? They were. No extra lenses for this one, just the 18-270 PZD, as it comes. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 270mm; ISO 200; F/16; 1/160s. VC on.

Day 191: Paper swallowtail

discreetphoton Another origami piece today, and my favourite of several butterfly designs by Michael G. Lafosse. The beauty of a lot of his work is the simplicity behind it, and the scope for variation within the designs. I think the paper I used for this one worked out really well (although a matte finish woul...

Day 189: Elsecar Reservoir

discreetphoton I visited a different location this evening for a walk around. It turned into a really lovely evening, and I even got to see a kingfisher zipping across the pond five minutes into my walk (although that makes my last two attempts to find one even more galling). Itís courtship season for the Gr...

discreetphoton Whilst we were trying to plan our wedding reception today we ended up reminiscing and pulling out the old photo albums. I still kick myself when I think about the fact that I spent three years living in heart of the Lake District, and then took up photography after moving away. So theyíre not ...

Day 185: Crab Spider

discreetphoton This little fellow (and he was small, as youíll see if you skip forward a bit) was trucking across the floor of my home today. I relocated him to the sink to see just how close I could get, sticking a +3 dioptre on to the front of the lens, and using a flashgun to negate the daft exposure time...
