Southwark Bridge at Night

On Sunday I went up to London to photograph the Thames South Bank between the Millenium Bridge and London Bridge at night. Those bridges and the two in between, Southwark Bridge and Cannon Street Station railway bridge have all had illuminations installed during the summer. That was the primary reas...

Re: Informal Image Critique Sessions

I would quite like to look at “other” photographers work and learn from critiquing their images - rather than always bring my/our own - just for something different to do as a group? So it would be good to have a rough plan or a few project ideas. And how often would we meet, every six weeks or ......

Re: Skye 2020

..... we usually get snow in February. Being on Scotland's west coast and warmed by the Gulf Stream, snow is less likely to occur on Skye than other parts of the country. It is impossible to know, of course, but rain is more ikely to be an issue. The position is not really much better in March and ...

Re: Make It and They Will Buy?

Oh dear, best we look after the cameras we have got!! ;) Which is not really what I was saying, of course. The camera industry might be in a state of flux, but that has always been the case. There are lots of brands from the 60s and 70s which are no longer around. Petri, Miranda and Topcon to name ...

Re: Autumn Colours

Thanks for everyone's comments. The funny thing is that I was not very happy with the original shot as I did not think that the light was doing me any favours. It was taken on a gloomy day at around the time that the sun was setting. Exposure was 1/60 @ f/5.6 ISO 5000. I went back in the morning a d...

Re: Informal Image Critique Sessions

I would be interested too, if this idea is resurrected? I was promoting this initiative a while back as the feedback I got at meetings is that a number of people were keen on the idea. In reality that never translated into enough people registering interest to make it worthwhile. If the situation h...

Make It and They Will Buy?

There are a couple of recent stories about the future of the camera industry on PetaPixel today. The first, a rumour that Olympus will stop making cameras within a year, almost certainly lacks credibility. Which is the conclusion which the PetaPixel article reaches. According to PetaPixel, the story...

Autumn Colours

I do not venture into my local woods much these days, mainly due to a few anti-social dog walkers. The woods are a public amenity owned by Croydon Council and while most owners act responsibly, there are a significant number who consider the locale to be set aside purely for them. They make no effor...

Re: For all you Leica lovers and evryone who loves photography

I went to the Leica store in Mayfair yesterday to take a look at the SL2. The camera is heavy but after a while I forgot about it. From what I have read, Leica seems to have taken on board the criticisms of the original SL and paid attention to the handling of the new camera. Everything felt well ba...
