Some of my better photographs, often shared via the #MySundayPhoto linky.

Drone photography tutorial

With my children back at school, I took a short trip to the south coast earlier this week. I was armed with my new 10-stop filter for my camera and also my DJI Phantom drone. Depending on the weather conditions, I was either going to do some long-exposure photography of cloud formations using the filter or I was going to send up the drone to do some aerial photography of the coastal landscape.

Sussex and Kent landscape by drone

With the demise of the #MySundayPhoto linky, I said I would publish more photographic tutorials on the blog. My children, Helen and Izzy, only returned to school on Thursday so I have had no time to produce any tutorials, but I have undertaken a couple of short drone flights.

From Monica Lewinsky to the end of #MySundayPhoto

For me, as a blogger, today is a big day. Something of a sad day to be honest, but also a cause for celebration.

Ice photography tutorial

I’ve recently spent a lot of time focusing on the technical aspects of my photography. Very often, however, the subject matter is the crucial element of the image and that’s what I have concentrated on with this example of ice photography.

Long exposure photography using Christmas lights!

Take an over-excited blogger, give him a camera, a tripod and some Christmas lights and see what happens.
