Day 12 – Indoor Photos

I got given some flowers at the weekend…. so as I am stuck indoors today some quick flower photos: 1. Carnations – I love the colour I upped the ISO so I could get a fast handheld shutter speed on my Canon Macro Lens EF 100 – I am so lazy.. would have been much […]

Day 11 – Forest Walk

Today I took my wide angle and my tripod out to the New Forest – experimenting with shutter speeds and looking for a lone tree that would make a great focal point for my photo. The same tripod position was used for both pictures – I would like a lighter tripod – but I prefer […]

Day 10 – Windy Day on the beach

Today is a lovely windy day, so I walk to the beach was in order to blow our the cobwebs – I took a tripod 🙂 and a couple of photos with my wide angle lens. I think it is the first time I have been really aware how the shutter speed effects the end […]

Day 9 – Wide Angle Walk

It is a beautiful day so today I took the dogs off into a walk into town along with my wide angle lens to get a shot of the harbour – no other reason, other than to take the kids of photo I enjoy looking at – scenery / landscape style images…. Lens: Sigma 10-20mm […]

Day 8 Playing with fire

Today  a quick shot with the nifty 50 and a bonfire. It is a moving object so I played around with shutter speed this time. You can see the effect shutter speed this has on the depth of field, as the aperture changes – if you compare between the earlier and later images, the shorter […]

Day 7 – Nifty 50, people and movement

Yesterday I said that I had not really used this lens to take portraits … I admit I am uncomfortable taking photos of people where I have to get the camera in close… anyway this morning I had an unwilling model – my eldest teen was running on the treadmill and could not escape so […]

Day 6 – winning image

Every so often I enter various fun competitions online for photography … I never expect to win, but enter on the hope that it will improve my images and help me think more creativity. Last night on Facebook I received this message saying that I was the users choice for December for their favourite photo […]

Day 6 – Nifty 50 – Low Light

This mornings dog walk was the only time today I would have had the chance to take a photo… it was overcast, damp and I choose a woodland walk… Photo 1: ISO 1600, F8 and 0.4secs – I focused on the 2nd barbed wire spike, with the idea of seeing the line of wire stretching […]

Day 5 – Interior Photography

For my work with Renouf Design, I sometimes have the privilege of visiting people’s home and businesses offering them advice and photographing their property to promote it in local advertising on local web sites like Explore the New Forest for example. Today I was invited to visit and photograph a brand new B&B that is […]
