Photography: Around the Black Country

Sunday 19th October 2014 around the Black Country (72)

The settings on modern cameras are great, just set it on landscape for landscape photos and the camera does the rest. You can get technical and set the aperture, shutter speed and ISO yourself for better photos. The important thing is to point the camera at something interesting and try to keep it still.

The review: I want to be different

Wednesbury Pool

The reason for today’s picture is that I want to take the same picture this weekend to see the changes in autumn. I want to try different camera settings too. I don’t have grand ambitions, I write, take photos and see things differently. (more…)


Photography: Autumn events

Manor House vintage fair -  12 October 2014 (63)

Now it’s Autumn there are fewer events to photograph and the weather is even more unsettled. This was a vintage fair at West Bromwich Manor House at the weekend and was partly outside and partly inside. (more…)


Photography: creating illusions

1 sepia

I took this photo in January out of the window. I was warm, but these guys on the horse and cart were freezing.  I’ve edited it by converting the colour picture to sepia and I blurred the background a little more to highlight the subject. (more…)

Photography: Moorcroft Wood

Moorcroft Enviroment centre

I went to Moorcroft Wood on Sunday. I’m finding nature photography and landscapes a little boring, but buildings are still quite interesting. This is Moorcroft Environment Centre on the edge of the wood. (more…)


The Review: Does art need to reach out?

I’ve started with one of my more artistic pictures today. I’m thinking of visiting an art gallery this weekend. I often talk to young people and they’re quite interested in photography and art, but never visit a gallery or get to handle a decent camera. Perhaps the galleries aren’t reaching out to young people? (more…)


Tipton Canal and Community Festival in pictures

Tipton Canal and Community Festival (6)

I photographed the Tipton Canal and Community Festival on Sunday. It’s organised by the Tipton Community Association and features stalls and a fun fair as well as the colourful narrow-boats. The weather was quite cloudy, as usual… (more…)


The Review: Tipton Canal & Community Festival

Tipton Canal

It’s Tipton canal and community festival this weekend. I’m going to try to get there tomorrow. I am trying to publicise local events and businesses using my writing and photography, so I don’t want to miss this one. (more…)


Photography: Camera settings

The White House

The settings on cameras can be difficult to get used to. They tend to be similar on both bridge cameras and DSLR’s. On my Nikon D3200, there is a Guide setting on the dial that will help you learn about how to take different types of image. (more…)
