  • It's been a while...

    I haven't written anything on here for quite a while. I suppose it was a combination of the attraction of social media, and my private life, which had become rather complicated over the past years. I haven't exactly stepped back from social media, b...0

  • Doggies and Kiddies

    I love dogs, and therefore I also love dog portraits. But what Russian photographer Andy Seliverstoff shoots is special: Great Danes, Saint Bernards and Newfoundlands playing with young kids, and that makes for some great pictures. There's no use in...0

  • Typical

    So... I left my camera battery charger somewhere else. But no problem, there's always my phone. I use it as a back-up camera. Right. Well, I broke my phone the day before yesterday, I dropped it on a tiled floor. But I ordered a new phone, and it a...0

  • Portrait Textures

    I haven't had time to write more about my photo model holiday in Bulgaria up to now, but it's time to tell you a little more. I'm jumping over a few days and going to the end of the shooting days, the last day, Friday. We went to what turned out to b...0

  • Be careful about what you delete!

    Normally any messages from unknown sources starting with 'You're a winner!' or similar titles get deleted by me. It's amazing how many lotteries I've won without ever entering, or how many competitions I've never competed in but won anyway. Ahem! ...0

  • So about that prize in the EPZ Xmas Prize Draw...

    ... it was great! I won a model shooting holiday, courtesy of Photo Model Holidays from Bulgaria, including luxury accommodation in the Bulgarian hills, and most of all: including one on one model shooting - no group shooting, no waiting to take my t...0

  • It's Snowing!

    Normally I'd grab my camera and rush to the nearest picturesque spot. 'Normally'? Yes. Not this time? Nope. I have to wait for the plumbers to finish. And by the looks of things they're not going to be finished for hours. And the predicted a...0

  • Shooting People

    Oh dear, that sounds all wrong. I did mean 'Photographing People', of course. This is not about terrorist activities, it's a photography blog post... I've always been a bit insecure about shooting ... oh, here I go again ... photographing people I...0

  • Are People Becoming More Narcissistic?

    Photography trends may not be the best way to answer a question like this, but there are just a few things that have struck me, and they are all to do with selfies. I can't say too much since I've taken a few myself, but the trend I've noticed is ...0

  • Snapseeded Alley

    I've never photographed as many alleyways as during my last holiday. It must be a Mediterranean thing. :-) It's a bit of a challenge - even when the weather is good, the light in alleys is invariably very tricky for photography, mainly due to all ...0

  • Sights? What sights?

    Spotted in Cadiz: two cruise passengers just off the ship, more interested in their phones than in the local sights - and there were quite a few sights to see. Sign of the times? 0

  • Shot from the hip

    I like street photography, but I haven't done a lot of it - I suppose I'm just not very courageous, I don't like people noticing that I'm pointing a lens at them. So the solution is to do it covertly. In this case, after having looked at this Cro...0

  • Traveling Light

    Having sold all of my heavy photo kit a few years ago due to worsening back problems, and having replaced it with lighter MFT kit, the natural thing to do was to also sell off my two rather heavy tripods, a Manfrotto, and one of the bigger Velbon mod...0
