In my last post, I showed off the shots I took with my Voigtlander Vitoret during my trip to Bristol. When I finished the Peacock 110 film, I switched to the Lobster Redscale film. I took a couple of shots in Bristol, before using up the remaining shots back in Plymouth:   I’m not sure […]


I haven’t posted a couple of weeks as I had a lot of pictures to go through on my DSLR. Last week, however, I got a batch of pictures back from the labs at Lomography.com. These pictures were taken on my Voigtlander Vitoret 110, which I found on Ebay. I wanted to try a camera […]


In my last post I mentioned that I was getting lazy about my photography. I wasn’t going out with my camera as much. However, I didn’t consider my smartphone as a way of keeping my hand in when I’m on the go. Over the past five or so years, mobile photography seems to have taken […]

I have decided to return to this blog and have another go, since I went on a long hiatus from photography and have since got back into it on a more regular basis. I have no way to explain this break, other than life getting in the way and allowing myself to get distracted. It […]


I have always wanted to try my hand at street photography, as I love the idea of picking out scenes in everyday life that look dramatic, humorous or just strange. I have experienced so many moments where I noticed something odd or interesting during my daily commute that made me wish I had my camera […]


I realize it has taken me a while to update this blog, but I finally have the last article in my short series on basic black and white techniques.  This article will explain how to add colour to a black and white image, should you think it might benefit from a “duotone” effect. I selected […]


In the last post, I showed the most basic techniques of converting a colour image into black and white in Photoshop Elements. In this post, I will take things further with the use of the Levels and Curves functions. If I take the doorway picture from the last post, we can see that it looks […]


I haven’t posted in a while, but that does not mean that I haven’t been doing any photography. I stuck to the plans laid out in my last post, and I’m here today to display the results. This post will be the first in a series of posts I plan to do on my experiments […]

An example of my amateurish photography from a few years ago.

Since the evenings have started getting darker earlier, I have decided to organize my photography projects with the coming winter in mind. I thought I would post this update to outline what I intend to do with my photography up until January. The most obvious project that comes to mind is low light photography. Once […]

filterexperiment 004

I had second thoughts about posting this experiment. I decided to try out my neutral density filters, to see what effect they would have on my pictures. There are ways to replicate the effect in Photoshop, but I thought that since I had these filters lying around that I might as well give them a […]
