I took a trip to Sandbanks in Dorset yesterday. I spent about 6 hours around the coastline, capturing the coastal tides ageing structures along the shoreline. The shots in this gallery are a mixture of HDR and normal, non bracketed photos. Lenses used were 17-70mm SIgnma, 5omm Canon and 8mm Samyang Fisheye.
In today's world it is very easy to view other photographers work online. There are countless social sites dedicated to enabling everyone to share their work and view that of others. It's not just about sticking your photo on every site you can find however, this isn't enough to get you noticed, become an influence or be part of a community.
Took a trip to Virigina waters, near Windsor today. 2 things happened (as well as the photos). 1) I chase 3 lenses towards the river and only came back with two. 2) Broke down and had to wait 2 hours for recovery....enjoy the photos, they cost ALOT!
I will (hopefully) soon receive a telescope for my birthday. I am not sure if this is Brian Cox's fault for making astronomy so interesting or if I have always secretly wanted to see things 'up there' a bit closer but it has led to an increased interest in everything astrological.
As any photographer in the UK is well aware, Jessops closed it's doors last year and was assumed dead and buried. Since then Dragon's Den 'Dragon' Peter Jones has invested £4 million in reviving the chain. And there's more, Peter has added new services and features to Jessops offering that, quite frankly, should have been an obvious addition to it's previous owners.
Now that just about everyone has a cell phone in their pocket, it’s fair to say that just about everyone owns a camera, since most of these phones can also take pictures. The quality of these smartphone cameras improves with each new generation and, with a basic knowledge of lighting and composition, you can take good pictures with them.
Everyone's heard of Star Wars right?! Well, I love the original Star Wars trilogy and have noticed something about that little green Jedi's advice......it's very useful for photographers! Being quotes from a science fiction story, some are to the point, while others are a little more vague, allowing individuals to interpret them differently, depending on their own photography.
