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.

I enjoy every image I take: I hope you'll enjoy looking at them.

Goodbye to all that?

Iím not sure how many blogs I have written since the start of the pandemic, but I suspect at around 400. And looking for signs that normality might be returning, Iím particularly pleased that I shall be writing full-size articles for EPZ again. You can see the first one HERE.

So my output of blogs will be reducing, though as Iíve promised a few people, I will be continuing to write them from time to time. As Iíve said more or less from the start, I welcome ideas that people would like explored in this format. After my initial run through of the photographic alphabet, itís often been a struggle to find something to write about. But a morning walk has often inspired me.

Thatís all for today, but there will be more blogs to come!

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...

And let's all hope other forms of normality will return before too long. Take care out there!
