The on-going digitization of my 35mm slides from thirty years ago continues apace. I think I now have the whole setup sorted to the extent that I get the equipment placed out fairly quickly. To get decent images you need to ensure not only that the camera is level on all axis but that the … Continue reading Digitising Transparencies 3
I have to say that I really love printing my photographs. I have had my Epson SC P600 for about 18 months and from the get-go, it was a breeze to use. I use Lightroom to print my images and that also is so easy to set up and use. There was, of course, some … Continue reading Printer Refillable Cartridge System by Marrutt
I finally have made in-roads to the photographs I have taken in 2019. I have been approximately 18 months behind my processing since the summer of 2017, and then in 2018, it dropped further back as I attempted to get my Associateship application for the RPS ready.

I have worn contact lenses at some points in my life and used together with cameras they made looking through the viewfinder a pleasure. Then I got older and started to wear varifocals. My close-up sight is OK but my … Continue reading Cameras and @#~%$£ Glasses

Said digit seemed to not get in the way at all. To be honest I loved … Continue reading How I came to Fuji
Today I said no to the Fujifilm X-Pro3 and purchased an X-T3. My main camera is an X-Pro2 which is great and I really wanted a third model to come out so I saved up my pennies. When I heard the announcement of the release of the X-Pro 3 I was really looking forward to … Continue reading X-Pro3?
I would think that most people who know me would think of me as a confident person. For the most part, I feel that I am. However, when it came to my photography, I always had doubts that it was good enough. This self-critique in itself is obviously a good thing. We analyse our work … Continue reading A matter of confidence?
I recently attended a regular meeting of the RPS Visual Art group. One of the speakers that day was Sam Gregory. Sam is a professional photographer and tutor for Light and Land photographic holidays. His talk, suitably embellished with his brilliant photography was excellent. If you want to see what his photographs are like then … Continue reading More than one
Photograph: Old Fashioned Brief: Take photographs of an object that is or looks old fashioned. Try to show its various textures, angles and colours and even its use if possible. It’s up to you whether you take the images as a close-up or as still-lives. If the latter, ensure that the object is set up in … Continue reading Photo Project
