  • 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...

  • 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! ...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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?

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Decisions, decisions...

    Several years ago I found an infrared-conversion Canon Powershot G2 on eBay. I've had a lot of fun using it - it's a lot easier than putting your camera on a tripod, shutting out almost all of the light with an infrared filter, hoping for the bes...

  • Frustrated

    I've reached the point where I wish that I could load an old-fashioned battery in my camera - the kind you bought in the shop, put in, used for a year, and then replaced. I'm so frustrated by now, it's not nice. Since last year I've had some probl...

  • Stunningly Beautiful

    People who've known me since my youth, will remember that I was a shy boy. Not exactly the bold type, if you know what I mean. And although I've developed since then, in some ways I still am that shy little boy. And I'm painfully aware of that again ...
