Thanks for taking the time to look in. My portfolio has changed dramatically over the years. Long periods of inactivity where work got in the way and I forgot that cameras can be fun too!

If you're looking for true documentary wedding photography, please do take a moment to look at http://www.jamieemersonphotography.com

If you're looking for a specialist dog photographer in the north east of England, you could certainly do worse than looking at;

  • Cleared for Take-Off

    Cracking shot - pin sharp. Very appealing subject matter too!

    Lighten up fella Smile You've been given some genuinely helpful advice. All we can do with such advice is scrutinise it, decide whether or not it's useful and either learn from it, or move on.

    In this case, I'd have to agree with mcgannc's well put observations. If it was a "1200 lens", why does the EXIF say 400mm?

    Composition is very good Smile

  • BOING!

    Thanks all! He's a very photogenic dog, but a real challenge as he never, ever stops! Quite glad that my own dog is a little less active...

    I feel for your model. I feel for your camera. I almost feel sorry for you. Please understand, you know nothing of lighting, style, the female form or the male gaze. I can only hope this is a joke in poor taste.

    Like the way the humans at either end of the train act as 'book-ends'.

    That's beautiful. Skin tones / textures are amazing. Shame she looks like she'd like to fire lasers out of her eyes and obliterate the human race Grin Whilst I understand the need for 'blue-steel', a wee smile, or a show of teeth would lift this from pedestrian to Ferrari Smile

    Nice one - plenty colour too! Still haven't had time to do anything with any of mine.....

  • Och Aye the loooo!!!

    Oh my good God! I promise never, ever to make that face again, so you've got an exclusive there Grin

    Brilliant! He looks like an old man waiting for his Guinness to settle! A reflector (or even a sheet of A4 paper) would bounce some light into his face and add catchlights to his eyes.

  • Stranded

    Beautiful work - the tones in the driftwood are almost reflected in the sky - as per description, great juxtaposition of warm and cold colours.

  • Christmas Greetings

    Excellent - not least because the BG bokeh looks (slightly) like Santa Claus.... Did I miss something? is that what the shot's all about?!

  • I am imaginary man

    Blacks, whites, midtones a-plenty, interesting subject matter, a story within a photograph.... All boxes ticked Smile

    Definitely has a 'look' - and I like it!
    • 13 Mar 2010 1:08AM
  • Ahahaha

    Love the angle - looks like the shop on Victoria St where I used to spend my pocket money - glad to see it's still there!

  • After the beach

    Those chaps are paying attention in a big way! Wouldn't have known it was the 10-20 if you hadn't said - no obvious distortion. Perfect exposure too!

  • Sample 1

    Could be a shutter speed / shakey hand issue - the buildings over the road look in sharper focus than the last guy's head. Do you know what the shutter speed was?

    Best to line them up so that they're on the same plane of focus (that is, not all at different distances from your camera.

    Also, if at all possible, get the flash off the camera. It has blown out the first kid and barely touched the last in the line.

    Finally - watch yer backgrounds - that green thing in bottom right is very distracting.

    HTH!

    Cheers Mari - just been looking at that page in your link, and yes, that's what it looks like!

    Proper Christmas card material there! Actually, that wouldn't do the photo justice - it needs framed. Got one of the same church from a different angle years ago here on film

    Went back last summer and got a

    digital shot of the same view.

    Great colour in the sky and yes, it is better large Smile

    Thanks for the comments - much appreciated.

  • Stuck In The Middle

    An unusual take on on oft-viewed landscape. Like this a lot!
    • 23 Oct 2009 11:42AM
  • Sea Motion

    Stunning. The movement is so compelling it actually acts like an optical illusion - I feel a little unbalanced every time I look at the image!
    • 23 Oct 2009 11:38AM
  • Abbotsbury gardens

    Wow! What a difference! Surreal looking stuff.
    • 23 Oct 2009 10:42AM
  • Reunion

    A true candid - really very well done. I'd have been tempted to extend the vignette to cover up the bottle of water to the right, but that's just me!

  • Reflected Red

    Nice semi abstract - like the crop.
    • 23 Oct 2009 10:31AM
  • Queen of the Night........

    Great lighting - lots of atmosphere. The birds add to the feel of the image too.

  • Fatboy Slim

    OMGG! Bushel - light interface... Is that for real? You kept that (relatively) quiet!! Nice self portrait BTW...

    Obviously, the member with the most epz stars will have his image gracing Mandy's walls Smile

  • Mini United ~ Russ Swift

    Looks like a ringside seat for you! If I was in the passenger seat, I'd be puking not laughing..... The facial expressions set the photo off beautifully.

  • Self Portrait with Day-glo Jacket

    Cheers Sues - sore bits beginning to recover after 20 miles off road and ten miles on. Some of the roughest cross country riding I've ever done over the Fairy Pools route, down into Sligichan.

    Took an antique two section tripod which just holds the weight of a D200 and a small prime - the above was shot at one eighth of a second using self timer and a polarising filter to give me enough time to bimble into the frame Smile
