Time for an update: I still use film, though. Not vast quantities, but I have a darkroom, and I'm not afraid to use it.

Iím taking pictures today, so this will be short. Working with a model outside the mainstream Ė youíll probably see images tomorrow.

Itís the first time Iíve set up my Ďhome studio fully: muslin over the bay window, black cloth background and lights on stands with softboxes, beauty dish and so on. Mostly set up last night, to reduce stress today.
I know what Iím going to do Ė intense portraits of lovely eyes, arty nudes. But it has been a while.

Wish me luck!

Choose your pond

Thereís an old saying about being a big fish and a little pond. Do you want to be the most important person in a small organisation, or are you content being a relatively small cog in a big machine? Itís the same in photography. With relatively mo...

Graduated filters

This is for Hannah, and anyone else who has come across the casual way that a lot of togs talk about one or two types of filter that landscaper photographers use a lot: graduated filters and neutral density filters. A graduated filter is one that i...
