Photography

I used to be ‘into’ photography. I started with my Grandfather’s old Praktica 35mm camera, a camera so old I had to use a handheld light meter. I learnt the basics of photography with that camera, and used it until its lens fell apart. I had a succession of 35mm cameras after the Praktica: a Continue Reading

Photo 366 – Game Over

Well that didn’t last long; I completely forgot to take a photograph yesterday, and under my Photo 366 rules that’s it – game over. In my defence it was my twelfth wedding anniversary, and I was obviously enjoying myself far too much to remember. Photo 366 was fun while it lasted. The 126 photographs I did Continue Reading

Photo 366 – The First 100 Days

After 100 days of my Photo 366 project I thought I’d pause and review how it’s going. When I started the project I said: I think my Photo 366 project will be a challenge to keep fresh with interesting photographs. I commute to London at least four days a week, well I say London but Continue Reading

Rethinking Photo 366

I’m changing the way I ‘manage’ my Photo 366 project. By using a blog as the core of the project I’d made it a chore, and removed the potential for spontaneity from it. So as of today my Photo 366 Flickr set will the be the repository for my Photo 366 images. I hope to Continue Reading

Review: POPA

I’ve had my POPA for a little while now so I thought it time I share my thoughts about it with you. The Software I’ve been using the app both with and without my POPA, and it’s become one of my favourite iPhone photography apps. What I love most about the app is its speed. Since Continue Reading

Shot With POPA

My Photo 366 project has had a really nice reception since its launch, and even inspired a few of my friends to do the same. I’m delighted to say that my friend Brendan Dawes has offered me a POPA to use for my Photo 366 shots. POPA is the big red button for your iPhone that Continue Reading

Photo 366

I’ve seen a number of photo sets on Flickr where people have taken a photograph a day, every day, for a year; I thought it would be a fun challenge to do the same. Being a competitive sort of chap I thought I’d go one better, and take a photograph every day for a year Continue Reading

An Indian Bus Ride

I was talking to my friend Christian about my post The Story Behind The Picture when he reminded of his favourite photo from our trip to India. We were staying in McLeod Ganj in Himanchal Pradesh, and decided to have a look around the nearby town of Dharamsala. We thought a bus might be more Continue Reading

Summer Glides Away

I took this photograph before I went on holiday. This morning, just a few weeks later, I was struck by how much lower the sun is in the sky. Summer is gliding away. When summer gathers up her robes of glory, And, like a dream, glides away. Sarah Helen Whitman
