Where has the time gone?

So, apologies for lack of posting – it’s been nearly a week since our last post but we haven’t made it out for any photography since then. The weekend weather as per usual has been pretty grim and we didn’t get out for any shots. Also, during the week we have been working on a … Continue reading “Where has the time gone?”

Another week over…

Here we are at Friday again. This week has flown by, which is good in a way but scary in another how quickly time is passing by.  My 50th birthday is fast approaching – how the hell can I be 50?! My parents always used to say time will pass quicker the older you get … Continue reading “Another week over…”

Cheeky Mid Week Sunset Shoot

Well, almost mid-week. Thursday I shut down the work laptop, grabbed our camera bags and picked Jon up straight from work so we could go get ourselves a sunset on camera. The weather had been lovely and, having kept all our fingers and toes crossed all day (made work challenging!) the weather held for us … Continue reading “Cheeky Mid Week Sunset Shoot”

Long Exposure Photography – why have we not done more?

The weather has not been co-operating this year to allow us to get out and about with our cameras as much as we want and it has been really frustrating.  As a consequence, we have been getting our photography “fix” by revisiting previous years’ photos to see if there are any we loved enough to … Continue reading “Long Exposure Photography – why have we not done more?”

Grey rainy Sunday. Here’s something to do – get insurance.

Looking out the window and it is a pretty miserable Sunday. We are both wanting to get out and do some long exposures with some nice movement in the clouds. Well, that is the idea anyway but there is no definition up there right now. It does seem that we get unlucky at weekends this … Continue reading “Grey rainy Sunday.

Revisiting The Past

I had fun recently creating my first proper portfolio of my images from the last 7 years. See my last post about my portfolio. Going back and revisiting shots taken from 2010 to the present was a great trip down memory lane. So many places we visited and lots of memories. It was great and … Continue reading “Revisiting The Past”

Jenn’s New Portfolio

Well it is the weekend again and we haven’t yet been out to take any photos.  The weather has been pretty good all week but typically, now it is the weekend, it was grim and grey out there all day with flat grey clouds. Needless to say, we didn’t get up for a sunrise as … Continue reading “Jenn’s New Portfolio”

Up and Out for another Sunrise

Well the sunrises are getting earlier and earlier which means soon Jon and I will not be getting up to take them! At the moment it isn’t too bad getting up for a local shot in Thanet. We can rise at a fairly respectable time of 5.45-6.00am and rush down to one of our local … Continue reading “Up and Out for another Sunrise”

A little blurb for the middle of the week, telephoto issues

In my last post I said I was going to take my telephoto 80-200mm lens out for a landscape trip. Having never attempted landscapes with a telephoto it was time to give it a go and see what happens. Well for starters it struggles on my Canon 6D. Working perfectly for a while it then … Continue reading “A little blurb for the middle of the week, telephoto issues”

Botany Bay Sunrise

Well, it’s finally the weekend so it must be time for another trip out and another post. We were up at 6.00am this morning as we wanted to capture a sunrise and had decided on Botany Bay in Cliftonville for a change as there are some great chalk cliffs and stacks there to add some … Continue reading “Botany Bay Sunrise”
