Playing The Long Game: Outdoor Photography With Telezooms

All Except Five!


Thanks for dropping by. All clicks and comments very much appreciated. Smile

I like documentary and street photography, but a bit of anything else on the side. I tend not to use Photoshop too much, just sticking to the basic adjustments, but sometimes break free to try something "arty".

Thank you for visiting. I love seeing all your photos and hope you like mine.

All Except Five!

What a lovely day today. The sun was out, it was fresh and clear, so I went mudlarking down the Thames with my camera. I gave the 17-55mm a good run out and discovered that at 2.8, the camera focusses slightly in front of the subject. So that was a lesson learned. It might have been me though, so I'll do a better test next time. Have still got to master the on-camera flash though and I haven't quite got the hang of what setting to use so that the lens barrel doesn't cast a shadow. Although I took nearly 200 shots I've just been through them and most of them were so boring, whether exposed correctly etc. or not, that I've deleted all but five of them. This is one of the keepers, although it's not particularly good. It's underneath the pavement taken from the beach.

A Lovely Day in the Park

The day was lovely and fresh after the storms of the past week, and the air was clean and bright. Lots of families out in the park enjoying the cooler weather.

Messing with the Mirror

Thought I'd use my little Lumix 20mm lens for a bit, so just went around the house and garden snapping stuff. I did a selfie in my 3-way mirror so it's here, just for the record. Will try it on some street stuff soon - I'd forgotten how nice it is....

Just a record shot of one of my garden foxes showing its teeth. Didn't realise they were so big.

Wildlife in the Park

It was all happening in the park. The warm weather brought out a load of wildlife, most of which was moving too fast to snap, but I got a couple. The only slow things were some rather large terrapins who were parked on an unused coot's nest, sunbath...
