Focus keyword

Today I’m going to look at how to do a photo blog, because many of my readers are bloggers! I’ve started with an image from my media library.

The Review: perspective

art gallery

Perspective is the way we see things, such as the pictures on the wall in this photograph. They seem to get smaller as they go away from us, but we can still tell that the one on the far wall is the largest one. The boards on the ceiling and floor add to the perspective of the picture too.

Photography: Out in the Black Country

The River Tame

On Sunday we went out in the wilds of the Black Country. This is Sandwell Valley Country Park and the canalised section of the River Tame. I was using my 300mm telephoto lens which gave me the opportunity to zoom in on subjects. (more…)


Photography: A grey weekend

Sandwell Valley

Swans on Swan Pool, Sandwell Valley Country Park

When it’s not raining we still seem to have grey skies. It’s the summer solstice on Friday and so maybe things will improve with the coming of summer. This picture shows clearly how the grey sky reflects on water and makes that grey too. (more…)


The Review: Life is so complicated

1 Tameside 1

Today’s picture is of the River Tame. Those flowers are dying off now, but it always looks good in May. The Tame is the subject of a heritage project now and they need a volunteer to help.The application seemed a bit too complicated for a job where you don’t actually get paid. (more…)
