Category Photography – Five Star Service

Whilst the ongoing saga with So Cameras continues I’ve been busy looking for a new home for some of my camera gear as I look to upgrade. For this transaction I turned to who buy and sell used camera equipment. I’ve never used them before but from hereon they will be my recommended choice… Read More

Bokeh Special Effects & Lego Photography

I’ve not been as active with the Stuck In Plastic weekly challenges of late. In part because I’ve been busy with other things but also a couple of the themes didn’t really appeal. However that’s the beauty of the challenges – you can simply dip in and out throughout the year – whilst also marvelling… Read More

Do You Still Do Wildlife Photography?

One of the questions I’m often asked by people who follow me on social media is do I still do wildlife photography. Pre-covid I was lucky enough to go on trips where I could photograph pelicans, puffins, bears, white horses and even humpback whales.

The themes vary from using techniques such as long exposure, styles like film noir and… Read More

A 2022 Blog Update – Sports Photography!

OK where did 2021 go to? After spending a fair amount of time getting things in order on this blog I then went and abandoned it for what must be the umpteenth year on the trot. However the good news is that I have been taking photos over the last 12 months or so. Wildlife… Read More

Red Foxes Of Zandvoort

Over the last few years I’ve done a number of wildlife photography trips mostly with the same company. For the most part they’ve been good and without any issues. However the last two trips I did with the company were not so great and therefore this one, Red Foxes Of The Netherlands, was to be… Read More

Faceless Portraits Using Rimlights

For 2020 Llanelli Photographic Society are running a series of monthly challenges. At the start of each month we receive four subjects and the challenge is to produce a photo during the month that fits each theme. This approach is much easier than a weekly challenge – as we had last year – as it… Read More
