Isn’t photography incredible? You get to take those moving, sometimes chaotic moments in time and distill into a single shot. You capture the emotions, the movement, the colour. And then the image sites on your memory card for months, until you eventually either wipe it or upload it to the cloud. This digital age offers so many amazing opportunities for photography, but it can also take away some of the magic. Remember the old days of developing your images and carefully displaying the best? Here are three reasons to recapture that spirit by printing your photos.Read More
Every so often photography goes through a phrase of different things that are popular. Some last a while and others fade as quickly as they came.
One of these is the use of a lensball, they have been around for the best part of a year and if used correctly that can create some effective photos. The norm is for the photographer…or assistant to hold the globe in front of the subject and snap the photo.Read More
The ability to use filters is a real skill and not something that you can pick up quickly…but using them especially a 10 stop filter can massively change your photography and open up a whole new World of creative.Read More
I've had a lensball for a while but never really used it before. I didn't want to just take a photo with me holding it in front of the subject, it seems like everyone is taking a photo like that.
I must admit I did take a photo like that when I first got it and it received a lot of likes on Instagram but I wanted to step away from that.Read More
The idea of travelling on the London Underground with children might send shivers through some people it is actually a fun way for them to travel. It might be one of the only times they get to travel this way and there are a few things you can do to make it a little more enjoyable.Read More
One of my favourite things to do during spring and summer is just to walk around London and take photos, capturing things I hadn't seen before or just trying a different angle of a building.
This got me thinking about a photography project that you can join in with and it might even keep the children entertained and you'll get to see different parts of London.Read More

Today we're talking memory cards...more specifically dual memory cards.
If you've recently bought yourself a new high-end camera you would have found it's more often than not got dual card slots.
With the professional bodies from Nikon, Canon or Sony you can pick which card type you'd prefer such as XQD, SD or Compact Flash. Normally you can buy a version that has two slots the same which is perfect but for some reason, Nikon thought it would be a good idea to have one XQD slot and one SD slot in the new D850 meaning you've got to purchase two different types of cards.Read More
I love visiting London, I'm only an hour outside of the city and don't visit it as much as I should. This will change in the next school holidays as we're taking the girls up there for a little trip and a hotel stay, this will be the first time they've really visited.
Last week I planned a day in London to take some photos. When I set out I took both my Pixel phone and also dSLR, and the thinking was that I would see if I could take photos that I'd be happy with just with my phone. My Nikon was simply there as a back-up option.Read More
It's really no secret that I love taking moon photos, with this in mind I thought I'd write a little post about Taking Photos of the Moon and the settings I use and the results I get from my little camera. I'd like to point out that I am no expert, I'm not the greatest photographer but I seem to get pretty good results from my simple point and shoot camera. If you look at my Instagram profile you'll see that every week or so I will be standing outside taking a photo of the moon.Read More
