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 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; ISO 400; F/8; 1/320s. VC on.

Day 208: Rotherham Minster

discreetphoton 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 dodging to build up the exposure time in the sha...

Day 193: The Captainís seat

discreetphoton 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; 8 seconds. VC off.

discreetphoton 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 longevity than most other genres. I declined the p...

Day 102: Twinkle twinkleÖ

discreetphoton 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 of the glass. If the glass has poor resolution, t...

Day 90: Rawmarsh Hill

discreetphoton 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 view looking down towards town. My favourite pho...

discreetphoton 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 see what an image stabilisation system does in re...

discreetphoton 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 of modern materials. I looked a little closer than...

Day 76: myplace Rotherham

discreetphoton 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 building, and Iíve been patiently awaiting the remo...

63 - 365

bfgstewNot taking the pith! Another test shot, this time of an orange, taken at closest focussing distance, hand held in same room as before (dullish light) first at f1.8 and focused on the middle of the front of the orange, the scond was shot set at f16 on the same spot (in camera pop flash deployed it...

Day 57: Coffee break

discreetphoton 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 the kitchen and a mini maglite. Nikon D300; Tam...

Day 54: High reflectance

discreetphoton 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 held, at Rotherham College of Art and Technology. ...

Day 44: Men at Work?

discreetphoton 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 play about a bit with the exposure times to get diff...

Day 35: All mod cons....

discreetphoton All mod cons... I can honestly say that today is the first time that Iíve ever looked at a bunch of caravans and thought ďthey look niceĒ. This scene made me think of CSI or, maybe the movie ďSe7enĒ. Definitely not what I would imagine of the outskirts of Sheffield. I didnít have a tripod...
