Line and Light, Historic Interiors Course
27th February 2012
I had the chance of gaining access to some of Nottingham's most interesting buildings.
We started at the Bromley House Library, on Angel Row, a door that you would walk past not knowing that there was a subscription library hidden inside.

We then moved across to The Council House, where we had unlimited access all areas to take and create images in this wonderful building.

Easter Weekend
23rd April 2011

New Camera, Panasonic LX5
18th November 2010
Well I was looking for a point and shoot and after considering both a Canon G12 and Panasonic LX5, the LX5 won out as it was more pocketable.
I have been using for the last week after picking it up in B&H in New York.
It is an amazing little camera, I'm shooting in RAW and doing the minimum in post processing in Lightroom. I've set the maximum ISO to 400 and shoot mainly P or Aperture priority, the colours are so natural out of camera the sky really is this blue in the Caribbean. The dynamic range of the sensor is amazing as you can see from the street and interior photos.
I'll post some more as soon as I get chance to be online again.

20th September 2010

East Midland Monochrome Evening
02nd September 2010
I had a trip down to Northampton yesterday evening to the first meeting of the new season. We were invited to take along some work for review.

The nature of the work was "Wrecks and Ruins"

The general consensus was that they liked my black and white work, both subject matter and printing, this was much appreciated as it shows I'm on the right track!

Last weekend, exhibtion visit
31st July 2010
The last weekend, I went up to Agnes Burton Hall, just outside Bridlington to see the exhibition put on by my friend and fellow photographer Ian Meek. His website is well worth a view;
That evening over a beer we decided to do a a sunrise shoot, the tide was incoming, high tide being 7am approx, so when the alarm went off at 4.15 it wasn't such a great idea. we were in place for sunrise at 05.13 tripods and puddles chosen, we waited and were treated to an amazing view that was all over in 10 minutes.
