Quote from Freeman Patterson :

 "36 satisfactory exposures on a roll mean a photographer is not trying anything new."  OK, not exactly up to date, but the principal still counts.

And from Elliott Erwitt


"To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."


And from  your webmaster: 1. Find the subject;  2. Find the light:  3. Find the composition;  

                                                       4. Check all around your viewfinder. If an element doesn't add, it detracts.

Salons and Exhibitions

Andy has kindly written a guide to entering Salons and Exhibitions. Read his guide HERE.


Expose to the Right.

David Allen has spotted a very interesting article suggesting that we should “overexpose” our photos. Read more here.



Backing up photos while travelling.

Many Android phones and tablets can be connected to a card reader or direct to your camera, your photos copied to the phone’s memory and on to the cloud when in a wifi area or to a micro USB memory stick. You need a USB on the go cable, and (possibly) the free app. StickMount.

Have you ever wondered about the way sensor sizes are stated in digital camras? Take a look at  Making (some) sense out of sensor sizes for an explanation.



Like to know when to capture the best sunrises & sunsets?  TRY:

The Photographer's Ephemeris Not only does it tell you where and when the sun and moon will rise and set, but also the angle to the horizon and it can also be used to work out when the sun will disappear behind the hill (often much earlier than sunset) or when a particular point will fall in to shadow. It’s pretty amazing and free!  And for those with i-phones it works on that too!



If you are not a reader of David Peterson’s Newsletters I can recommend them as a great place for learning. Take at look at:
