In what may become a regular (ish) feature, I've decided to share a couple of my current favourite photo books. They aren't going to be full reviews, but will hopefully give a taster for the books, and maybe inspire you to take a look.
It's rare that we get snow once a year these days, so when I first heard about the Beast from the East bringing a stint of winter weather, I was both excited and skeptical. However, for once the weather reports appeared to be true!
Bedfordshire is the smallest of the ‘Shires’ with a surprisingly wide variety of landscapes within it, and it's this variety that I have tried to demonstrate in this small collection of images on display at the Pavilion in the Park.
I'll be honest. I often get jealous of some of the places photographers seem to have on their doorstep. Anyone that follows Mark Littlejohn or Nick Hanson will know what I mean. A daily dose of dramatic landscape photography from the Lakes or Skye is both inspiring, and depressing at the same time.
I've had the new Lensbaby trio 28 for Fuji X-mount about 10 days now, so thought I'd write a small review of my first impressions. The Trio 28 is the latest lens from Lensbaby and is thankfully available in a Fuji X-Mount.
First off, this isn't a Film vs Digital blog. It's just my ramblings about getting into film for the first time in 16 years. Secondly, this is mostly a post about gear, and the wonderful experience of using a particular camera.
July was a month of 2 halves. The first half was spent getting ready for my first event - displaying at the Bedford River Festival with the Artists Network Bedfordshire. The second half of July was far more relaxing, as I enjoyed 2 weeks off work, with a week spent in the Scilly Isles on a family holiday.
