    Whitby Abbey

    Whitby Abbey has been on my of places to visit for a long time. Luckily last weekend I finally managed to get the chance. Unfortunately nothing too out of the ordinary as you can't get too many truly original shots of something photographed millions of times, but I'm really impressed as its been...

    Beginner Bee taking Lavender Pollen

    On a walk, I managed to take a shot of a bee taking pollen from a lavender flower. Ive only just come across this recently so just gave it a quick tweak. Im not one for flowers and insects but I like this shot. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to improve this or hints on how to start...

    Police Light

    I went to the National Memorial Arboretum last weekend and if anyone hasn't been, its well worth a visit to see some amazing memorials. I spent some time on 'The Beat' which is a Police memorial walk. To signify the start of 'The Beat', there is an old Police light that with a bit of cleaning...

    Beginner Family Wedding

    Sorry little kitten, I just couldn't help myself ;) Thanks for the comments guys. Its nice to see you aren't ripping them to pieces (or at least refraining) so I am clearly improving on my very first shots and i have added your comments to my pile of hints and tips for when I am next taking...

    Beginner Family Wedding

    Thanks for your comments. I don't think I would ever want to do wedding shots as a job. I feel under pressure just taking snaps as and when I wanted to with them knowing I like photography (so they will have at least some expectations), let alone being expected to produce brilliant shots. I...

    Beginner Family Wedding

    My mother in law decided to get married to her long term partner on Friday and after recovering from my massive hangover, I got to work processing some of the shots I took. Here are a couple I am quite happy with so thought I would share. I know a lot of people don't like selective colour, but...

    Tell Them I Love Them...

    I really like it. The colors are great in the sky and it looks so bleak I could see someone doing this. I hadn't even seen this as it was so small. What a good set of eyes you have. Care to swap my short sighted ones for yours?

    Mono Bird images- do they work

    I like both but lean towards the black and white. It would make a brilliant novel cover is the fist thing I thought

    Headshot of my buddy.

    I like the processing and shot but the only thing that is niggling me is that the very top of his hair is cut off in picture one. The second one is fine as there is a lot of hair missing but the first one is just so close to being a full head shot it niggles me as I think there should be a gap...

    Cat Appreciation Society! - lets see those catz!

    Heres my moggy Giles. He is an anti social git who is content with his own company. You can usually find him on his perch looking out the upstairs window out into the world but he doesn't go outside as it scares him. Stop With The Pictures Dad! by Forsyth1987, on Flickr

    Beginner Using a Hood

    I may have to start putting on my lens hood when out of the bag from now on then or you lot will crucify me if you see me :D. I only ever used it when the sun / flare was in the frame. as I am not a fan of having to faff about with it when zoomed as it sometimes creates issues when fully zoomed...

    Another camera bag advice thread...

    I have a Caden backpack like the one in the link below. I went for it as the zip is against my back so it harder to nick all my gear. I got it sub £30 and although its cheap its very well padded on th shoulder...

    Beginner Flash gun advice

    If you have a tripod, you can use that to mount your flash to assuming it has the screw hole on the bottom. I am waiting for my flash stand to arrive and have been using that to have a play around with. Perhaps something to try out before you decide you need both a tripod and a flash stand...

    One taken of my Cavalier King Charles today when trying to sync my wireless flash. I think she thought she would be getting a treat or something as she hovered around me looking expectantly. Of course, her powers of mind control subdued me and I ended up getting her one ;). Cavalier King...

    Has it been done before?

    I have had a look at these and I must say, your processing is amazing. The colours looks almost silver and black. You have a new follower on Flickr just so I can practice getting my mono as good as yours.

    Flash Equipment confusion

    Hi guys I have had a read of the strobist 101 blog and have put into my wish list an umbrella and a stand with flash head. The bit I'm confused about is how to make the flash fire when off camera. There is talk about cables and transmitters and sync cords and whilst I understand the theory, I...

    Canon 5D MKIII official owners/users thread, anything related to the 5D MKIII

    Picked one up from work a couple of weeks ago brand new with the 24-105 for £1200 as it was purchased by our purchasing team for literally two shots. It came with PS elements and LR5 (I already have LR5) and I have only taken a few photos with it but I must say the silent shutter is amazing and...
