I think I’ve been very lucky this summer, having had two fantastic holidays, and having seen some amazing things. By far the best scenes of the summer have been the landscapes, so I thought I’d share a few!
Recently visited my brother Jonathan in Bristol, took my Fuji S5800, but more importantly my Canon EOS 500N! Started with a good old aperture priority on the flower, then some long exposure of the stream..
After this I got to the good stuff, and started snapping on film. I like how dated and old the bridge looks, just because it’s black and white.
Quite pleased with this one.
For this one I used both long exposure to blur the river, but also aperture to blur the whole background. Just an experiment, but I quite like the effect.
Can’t take the credit for the photo, but I can for being damn handsome.
Quite possibly my favourite of the bunch, love how smooth the top layer is, except for the ripples behind the log.
Hope you’ve enjoyed the bumper issue
It was my birthday recently, and my brother Jonathan bought me a camera, a Canon EOS 500N to be precise. These are my photos from the first day of ownership, so don’t prepare to be impressed, they’re all experimental!…First of all, I attempted some tinkering with the aperture to give a nice blurry background.
The next shows an attempt at a long exposure pic.
The next two are portraits, again fiddling with the aperture.
This next one, I have no idea whether this counts as a good photo or not! Either way, it’s a long exposure of my cat.
This one was taken with a short shutter speed to try and get the individual water drops.
Yet more portraits, trying to get using the aperture nailed..
Used a Polariser filter here, to remove the glare from the water to view the tadpoles.
Being sneaky with the focusing.
Well, got to say, I’m very impressed with this camera (really, I have to, Jonathan will see this ). Hopefully my attempts in the future will come out with a little more skill, but I like these ones anyway!
I recently went on a school trip to Greece, so naturally I took my camera, hoping for some nice shots. Unforunately, in my opinion at least, what can be a fantastic view on the first day, can very quickly become ‘same old, same old’ by the fifth day, but hopefully I’ve managed to keep my pictures different and interesting at each location…
This week I went with my family to Dovedale in the Peak district, hoping to test out some new filters for my camera. It was a lovely walking route, and I hope I captured it as I saw it.
