    L.E.D. street lighting.

    During the last few weeks the council has been replacing the energy inefficient sodium street lighting with the greener L.E.D. lamps. What a difference in the light quality! ...... ...... a single exposure..... no blending. ..... Individual co...

    Day 218: Spokes

    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...

    Day 209: Anything thatís not nailed downÖ

    Öor is. You canít turn your back for a minute round here it seems. Amazingly, I would have expected this spade to get lifted. But apparently that would be too easy. They just took the shed from around it! Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 60mm...

    Day 208: Rotherham Minster

    I took a walk into town this evening to shoot the most prominent of our local landmarks. I used a small ballhead underneath the lens to keep the camera at the correct angle, although the rest of the tripod stayed in the car. I did a bit of sensor...

    Day 193: The Captainís seat

    Ted seemed to be looking out of the window this evening. I loved the way the light seemed to wrap around him. There wasnít much of it, so I turned off the VC and stuck the camera on a tripod. Nikon D300; Tamron 18-270mm PZD @ 38mm; ISO 200; F/10...

    Day 107: A Very Scottish Wedding

    This is the challenge which Iíve been most worried about. I was the first person to be approached for photography after my cousin announced his engagement. Itís always an honour to be considered, because wedding photos probably have greater l...

    Day 102: Twinkle twinkleÖ

    This is one that really needs to be seen it as large as possible. Itís a very subtle image, and it loses something every time itís downsized. When youíre photographing stars with a wide angle lens, youíre at the mercy of the resolving power ...

    Day 90: Rawmarsh Hill

    I considered walking around the local churchyard this evening, but got distracted by an unlocked gate (this is something which happens regularly). Instead I ended up in the World War II memorial garden, which is small, but well-placed for the vi...

    Day 84: Pushing the limits for low light

    Letís get this out of the way first. If youíre reading this and youíre not a photographer, you should probably just skip to the pictures. Iím about to lose some of my readers with some technical jargon. Sorry about that. Today youíre going to ...

    Day 82: Reading between the lines

    Reading between the lines I spend my Tuesday evenings in Rotherham College of Art and Technology, and I think that itís (unsurprisingly) a building with lots of photographic potential: geometric patterns and lines; bold colours and loads o...

    Day 76: myplace Rotherham

    myplace Rotherham In the year since I moved here, Iíve gradually seen this built from the ground up. While I think it looks slightly out of place at the moment (as the first of a few planned developments), I think itís a wonderful looking bu...

    Day 57: Coffee break

    Coffee break Itís now the end of a very busy week. Iíve not had much energy or inclination to get out today, and as I will be very active over the coming days, I decided to try making something out of nothing, from the bits and bobs lying about t...

    Day 54: High reflectance

    High reflectance Tonight I gave a talk to Rotherham Photographic Society on HDRI and tonemapping. It seemed appropriate to use something familiar for the practical demonstration, so I shot this outside the building where their meetings are he...

    Day 44: Men at Work?

    Men at Work? So what do you do when you get out of work late, and all the lightís gone? Drive around until you find something that catches your eye. I love the way that construction machinery looks under the work lights, and you can pla...
