Welcome to my Portfolio. You are welcome to come in and browse my work. Despite being a photographer for many years I see that I have a lot to learn.

  • Jeremy Corbyn says he will fix it............................................................ TongueTongueTongueTongue
  • I took many images of our LCD TV Screen when the UK 2012 Olympics were on and they all came out OK. However they were for personal use and interest so I guess I don't need to worry about the copyright issue.
  • Meet them at your bank and pay the money in there and ask bank to check the notes. If they are not prepared to do this, walk away.
  • Oh dear, I cannot post my results........ BlushBlushBlushBlushBlushBlushBlushBlushBlushBlushBlush
  • As with (it seems) all your videos you are having the same problem, to short clips and unsuitable transitions. In looking at the video there is no link between clips so is not making a sensible story. I can see what you are trying to do but you are not succeeding.... Like I said in my comments on your other videos you are not listening........or learning! It seems everyone is giving you the similar feedback.
  • It is so interesting finding out about our families. I am at the moment creating both mine and my wife's Family Trees. I have her family going back to c1300 and my own family the 1600's.

    When investigating public records (via ancestry.co.uk and old Church and Old Parish Records) it is wonderful to see family names in those records. I do have photo's of some grave stones of my wife's ancestors graves The shame from my point of view is that I only have a few old photo's of people themselves..
  • I think I'd prefer to get on a safe flight regardless of equipment in the hold.....
  • Didn't know that, thanks.
  • Cant beat Spicer Hallfield Elizabethan.
  • From my experience I find it really helps you understand 'lighting, apertures and shutter speed's. I always carried my Weston with me even though my Canons were fully metered. How many photo's have we all taken with fully metered cameras and not even noticed what aperture and shutter speed is being used.......
  • Grew up through a period of economic stability and investment, never been unemployed, always earned a good salary, have a two thirds salary linked pension, have 4 boys all went to University, bought a house when they were only 4 times annual salary now worth half a million, have good health and fitness and a marriage that's lasted 50 years. YES, I am lucky..... and I think I'm gonna win the lottery this week too ......... ! SadSadSadSadSadSad
  • Lawyer ?
  • Alex, You have partly answered your own question in that close up photography because of the dimensions and aperture settings it automatically gives a blurred background. The rest of it is dependant on light available and shutter settings

    Presuming you are using a digital camera it is so easy to take lots of shots at the various aperture and shutter settings and compare them, even on screen.
  • You are not listening to all the comments you have been given on your other video links so its a waste of time commenting on this one........
  • The Canon Printer software that came with the printer can do this as will Photoshop and probably most photo editing software.
  • Helpful Tips
    When typing numbers it is often required that a ‘half’ or ‘quarter is required. There are numerous ways to do this but a simple one is as follows: -
    • Run the program named ‘Charmap’.
    • Select your font.
    • Click on the character you require
    • Select Copy and paste into your email, document, you can use the Alt+xxx codes to apply as well as the copy method.
    • Examples below

    Using Arial Font/Code
    ¼ Alt+0188

    ½ Alt+0189

    ¾ Alt+0190

    2½ Alt+0189

    In most cases the codes are common between fonts but some are different so check first. Using this method, you can effectively type in any unique characters within the font range.

    Hope this is helpful.
  • Do you have a second set of equipment? because if anything fails you will be in trouble and as Janeez says it all has to be of professional quality -- and that's alot of money....

    I was doing a very large ( 200 Guests at a large country house) wedding one day with a colleague and his Nikon failed, he then, to my horror, got out a Digital Compact Nikon. Now, I'm sure that he could have captured some reasonable if not good photos with the compact but what would the B&G thought.... I did loan him my spare and the company who had hired us never hired him again.
  • 18 hours equates to £360.
  • For friends I did the wedding for free and gave them a memory stick with the prints, for very close friends and family I did the wedding and an album for free.
  • Making a living from photography is extremely difficult Certainly you can earn some pin money doing weddings or portraits for friends but experience is essential. Your idea of helping a local tog with weddings is good, bearing in mind Satireblues comment However to start with all you will be doing is carrying the gear, parking the car,,,,,,,,,,,,, etc. Even so there will be tremendous learning potential and who knows if you are that good the wedding tog might give you more to do......... and maybe even take some photo's... One hard thing being a wedding tog is how to deal with and handle the guests to get the best shots for the B&G.

    My advice is to go for it and don't give up, however do realise your limits.

  • Quote:Have a chat to those that are working and struggling to make ends meet

    ...... and what about those on benefits struggling to make ends meet....... those who have been made redundant, or maybe disabled, or live in areas where there are no jobs.

  • Quote:We have brought a lot of the perceived problems upon ourselves, with easy access to state benefits etc

    A misquoted assumption . Ask anyone who is on benefits how easy it is to get them, as is the assumption that all immigrants get them. A friend once told me that all the Polish immigrants are being given a second hand car to save the benefits giving them bus passes........... ridiculous.......!!

    The experience of my sister trying to get benefits after her husband walked out on her and the two children is still fresh in my mind....
  • I think that once you get used to the idea of dying it becomes easy which is why I think whole life terms are more appropriate. The modern injection method is no worse than going to the medical theatre for an op being put under anaesthetic. The thought of spending the rest of your life in a prison must be a nightmare, and so it should.
  • I loved it too, Coliseum, Trevin Fountain, Trajan's Column, Pick Pockets........... TongueTongueTongueTongueTongue SmileSmile
  • In the UK, the Courts would probably slap him on the wrist and forgive him and apologise for all the torment and trauma that the system and his parents gave him, and then would allow him to sue the victims family for putting temptation towards him by falling asleep next to him on the bus. All this of course would be funded by the Public with Legal Aid.......

    Then some TV Company and Newspapers would offer him a million quid to make a film about his life story...........TongueTongueTongueTongueTongue
  • As I was going to St Ives
    I met a man with 7 wives
    The 7 wives had 7 cats
    The 7 cats had 7 kits....

    How many were going to St Ives........Smile
  • Hi Franco, Just had a look at the video and nothing wrong with the camera but I found it distracting because it was like watching a still slide show. You did not give enough time to each subject before moving on to the next. A good try though.

  • Quote:Even if it was EU law, I never understood why people would get upset by that. What does it matter if a banana is straight or bent ? How dull must your life be if you care about that.

    Ah but straight Cucumbers are far more important......Smile
  • I am sure that Corbyn is an honourable man and means well but he has no leadership qualities whatsoever and his politics and allegiances stink. He will destroy the Labour Party.
