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

Pirates Of Machynys Bay

Much of my photography is taken around the same area of Llanelli, Machynys Bay. It has some great sunsets and can be wonderfully dramatic, but it can get a bit samey and that means inspiration tends to wane at time.

Shooting The Shard!!

Back in March the destination was The Shard in London. You can pay a few quid and head on up to the 69th Floor to enjoy a spectacular view of London. You take two lifts to the floor and then can pop upstairs to floor 72 for an even higher view. However, Croeso’s top tip… Read More
