My first picture today sets the scene, you can see the soldiers and their tents, but you want to see more. This was an American civil war re-enactment that I photographed on Sunday. It was hard to get close to the action, but I tried to zoom in as much as I could, despite the explosions! (more…)
Today’s photo of a daffodil isn’t very good, because I took it in really poor light. Notice I have added the copyright notice so it can be seen easily. I’m going to start taking ‘stock’ photos and will add a copyright notice to them. (more…)
Not long to go now to the big day. I have more photos for you today and all through Christmas. If you get bored, I’ll find you pictures to look at! (more…)
This is the time of year when you can dig out the snow pictures and edit them for Christmas messages and effects. These edited pictures can make your Facebook Timeline look cool or if you have a blog, you can change to a Christmas header. (more…)
Yes, I’ve been out photographing the Christmas Lights! I’ve even put my own Christmas tree up. This week I published more blog posts and hope to do more over Christmas too; right up to New Year. (more…)
I’ve been checking the weather forecast it seems this could be a good weekend for photography. At the time of writing, Saturday morning, the light is really good. Modern technology allows us to take great photos and share them with the world without messing around with films or processing. (more…)
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.
I went to Wednesbury carnival on Saturday. I took quite a lot of photographs and met up with family members. I think local events are important for community spirit and they benefit the local economy. There were other events around the Black Country at other parks.
I took this photo this afternoon. What do you think? These are the first ones of February. How do you think they would compare to January? It was just as cold, a biting wind today. This is the Milky Pool, that I have photographed before.
Sometimes you can scan an old photo and improve it or make it artistic with editing. This is West Bromwich High Street at the beginning of the 20th century. I edited with PhotoScape and use the colorize option.
