  • 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...0

  • 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...0

  • 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 ...0

  • The No Squirrel Photo Blog Post

    This is terrible! Another blog post without a photo! My own fault this time, though. I suppose I should always assume there will be photo opportunities when I go out. Admitted, I often use my iPhone to cover eventualities, but that doesn't always ...0

  • The No-Photo Photo Blog Post :P

    I've been carrying around my camera for weeks now, convinced that with the conditions of the season I would be able to shoot some nice pictures. But no - no pictures! Well, not with my regular camera, that is. I did take a few quickies with my iPhone...0

  • Rather Large

    I hate the weather in autumn, but we do see some wonderful-looking things around us, don't we. I know it all turns into a dirty mess in the end, but all those coloured leaves are great - for a while. And don't you just love all the mushrooms everywhe...0

  • McSkyscape

    What do you do when you see a really nice sky just before sunset, but you're en route to an appointment, you've only stopped to fill up with fuel, and there's something in the way that you wouldn't normally consider suitable for a nice skyscape? Y...0

  • I Don't Know What's More Frustrating

    So many times I've gone to a nice photo location, only to have my photo outing ruined by horrible or dull weather, or a total lack of good light. I do always try to make something of it, of course, but it can be very disappointing, going to a nice lo...0

  • From the IPhone Film Roll Archive

    I spotted a hitherto unnoticed usable shot in the archive with my iPhone Film Roll photos, and thought I'd do something with it. So, from a quick Mumbles visit on a Wales trip, processed with the Snapseed app, here it is: 0

  • Jurassic Park

    I don't often see things in real life that remind me of the Jurassic Park films, but last weekend I did. I had no idea what this was at first, had to read the sign to shed some light on the matter, but 'Jurassic Park' really was the first thing I tho...0

  • Selfie

    The Oxford Dictionary adds about a thousand new words a year, and today a list of new additions to the online dictionaries was announced. Among them one term that not only holds interest for me as a linguist, but also as an amateur photographer: 'sel...0

  • Photography Quote

    This quote by my favourite author, P.G. Wodehouse, made me smile: 'There are no [portrait] photographs nowadays. Only "camera portraits" and "lens impressions." The full face has been abolished. The ideal of the photographer is to eliminate the si...0

  • Photo Location Parking Frustrations

    It happens to me so often I couldn't possibly count how many times: you're driving along some road, and you see a wonderful photo location. But there's nowhere to park the car, or even to stop (legally). So the photo location disappears into your rea...0

  • Open to Suggestions

    I just had a look at my first upload ever on ePhotozine: Jousting Knights of Powderham. (Unbelievable, that was nine whole years ago, on the 6th of August 2004 - how time flies!) And I noticed something I'd forgotten about, but which was very helpful...0

  • Ugly Bugger

    On holiday I visited a place that was a bit of a cross between a museum and a zoo - if I had to choose which of the two it was, I really couldn't tell you - they had exhibits that had nothing to do with animals, films, and there were also different k...0
