  • Best Lens... Ever...

    Obviously Fuji's new 35mm f2 lens! Its true that i dont have much to compare it to, a big percentage of my lens is vintage stuff, flawed but full of character, and the only new lenses i have had in the past 15 years are a samyang 8mm fisheye, the ...

  • Halloween

    Ask most English folks what they think of halloween, they will probably tell you it is some American bullsh*t, or something along those lines. I agree, slightly, but not completely. In times before the Roman Invasion, celts would mark this time...

  • m39 to fuji x mount

    It is crazy to think that in all those years of owning a DSLR, i never once bought any decent glass for it, not once! All i had was the basic kit lens and the 100.230 or whatever zoom lens, hey, i only have myself to blame! Since owning this Fuji,...

  • Progress with speedlighting

    Yesterday i had an amazing 3 hour shoot at a relatively new location for me, though it is yet another derelict raf base, but this one is in Norfolk, a bit further afield than my usual haunt, but well worth the 45 minute drive to get there! My prev...

  • Problem solving in the DreamWorld

    Little known fact, sometimes when I am dreaming, I know I am dreaming. For so long now I have been trying to become lucid in my dreams, and I am getting there, though more often than not, the excitment of it all causes me to wake up. To get this f...

    I published a free ebook this year called The Perfect Selfie. At first I was rather pleased with it, but after a while it began to niggle me. Basically the word Selfie really p****d me off, I mean, selfie? Really? I dont do selfies, well, yes i...

    Ooooooh they make me scream with rage and sheer frustration at their uselessness, their inability to work further than 3 feet, their constant misfiring!!! So, kinda trying out some strobist things right now, got two awesome manual speedlights, a ...

  • some new lenses

    The only lens i had for my new fuji x-a2 wa the standard kit lens, the 16-50mm etc, which for a kit lens, quality is not that bad. Never liked the depth of field on it though, the bokeh was not nearly enough in the end, sooooo, i delved into some ...
