Photographs and a video taken in Scarborough, North Yorkshire.

In my last blog post, I waffled on about looking forward to and arriving at Scarborough, North Yorkshire for a family weekend away and some AM & PM me time with the camera while the family were in bed. The weekend came and went all too fast but the video footage and photographs remain. That’s one of the great things about photography. Be wise when it comes to backing up your images and footage and it will last a lifetime… […]

Mild Autumn Weather for photography in Scarborough …

I am with the family at Scarborough, North Yorkshire this evening. The family and me arrived here on Friday even via Bridlington and the coastal road past Filey to avoid the crazy A64 in rush hour. The gamble worked and the trip here was a real pleasure.The sunset on Friday evening did not happen, well it did but not so you would notice. This was fine, we had been working all day and ready for a rest and something to […]

Download my images directly from Pixabay

As some of you have already discovered, the link to download my images now points to my page on Pixabay instead of hosting the images myself on here. The main reason for doing this is to avoid the 8meg upload restriction that WordPress allows and I had to stick to when I hosted image uploads myself. To be honest, Pixabay makes a far better job of hosting images than I ever could. You can download images in a choice of […]

Elite Filter Holder Review – SRB Photographic

After falling while out photographing and snapping my previous plastic filter holder (I’m very clumsy), one of the main features of the new replacement filter holder had to be build quality and durability as well as price. A large amount of my photography is Landscape/Seascapes so the new filter holder had to be able to accommodate more than one filter at a time and a polarising filter, which put me in Lee and Nisi territory and the cost of the […]

Photography motivation slowly returning, roll on Autumn!

To ask if any of you go through a time of year when photography motivation is flat and just not there would be pointless, myself and many of my friends go through it every year. For some, it happens just before Spring, this year for me it has happened in Summer. Sunrises and sunsets are too early and late and the landscape is one big sea of green. Don’t get me wrong, I love Summer, I am talking purely from […]

Tips that helped me learn photography

Like many new photographers before me, I started in fully auto mode. Looking for basic compositions and lining things up through the view finder was all my little brain could handle at first using the Nikon D3200 which was my first DSLR. Even in auto mode, I felt out of my depth, I joke not. Tip Number 1 – Start in fully auto made From day one of owning a DSLR camera, I was inquisitive, how did other photographers blur […]

Summer Photography is Bloody Hard!

Summer photography, hard or easy? Like many of you, I am very much a spring and summer person, I adore spring, the freshness, new life coming after a long winter sleep and the prospect of having months of warm weather in front of me, appealing and magic. Spring never fails to give me this feeling, it always will .. From a photography point of view, spring is lovely but both spring and summer leave me knackered! A bold statement but […]
