  • I am not being idle.

    Its been rather a quiet year for me regarding photography, but that does not mean i have not used my camera much this year. Far from the truth, i am using my camera a lot recently, utilising the movie mode functions as opposed to static stills ima...

  • My new patch

    I was always envious of those who found their patch. The kind of patch where all manner of wildlife is observed and captured in pixels, or c41, or e6 if your posh. I have never had my own patch really. True, there are places i know and frequent of...

  • January 2012

    January 2013 was certainly a good month photography wise, all that snow and ice was stunning for a time, and made even more stunning by bringing us clear blue skies now and then. It is no secret that i disliked January, its a dark, cold, empty so...

  • DIY mini softbox

    Cant afford a lightbox, need one for my little slave flash, but their all a bit small for the job and the bigger ones cost silly money! So, time to get all Blue Peter i think. One box of Mini Rolls, devoured one by one until box is empty. C...
