All different. the info is on flickr.

 

What lens's have you got?

 

For andscape I tend to use my 24-70 and 70-200, the 16-35 gets used as well somtimes

 

APS-C equivalents of 28-85mm kit and 53mm prime, but I'd like to move towards nice light and pin-sharp primes. Likely a 16mm (24mm equiv), my 35mm (53mm) and then three choices; an 85mm equiv, 135mm equiv or save up for the 50-140mm (75-215mm equiv.), although it's a bit massive for my camera body.

 

Edit: I should note my subjects - cars & car shows, a little motorsport, street stuff, occasional holidays.

I was going to give it another year,  see how it sorts itself out. 

But realistically, i'm so invested in the Flickr platform, i may as well carry on. It's only £35 so  i can sort of justify it for now.

 

Is there another platform like flickr but free ? 

 

Same here I’ve just paid the £35. I’ve over 2000 photos on there so kind of stuck with it. I don’t know of any other platform.

Yeah, I'll be paying for it too. I have over 4000 photos on there. I don't use if for storage per-se, but as a way to display my photos online. I've not found any other platform that I prefer. I use Instagram but it degrades the picture quality far too much to be my sole choice.

 

Given that I've used the service for over ten years without paying a penny, I can't really complain, plus for many users I'm sure that 1k photos will be more than they ever need space for so they'll not notice any difference.

Few more from me:

No subject in this photo but I like the message.  They repaint this wall a lot (it's part of an art gallery just off of Edgware Road) and this is the current version. 

 

42642469_1870155316438605_58695419483221

Architecture is definitely one of my favourite things to photograph.  I kinda liked how things stacked up here, the warehouse roofs of Digbeth, the railway viaduct, the Selfridges building and the Routunda.  Very Birmingham. 

 

43778966_557012558073184_681037971012062

Autumn leaves in Wembley.  I was dicking about with an ND filter I hardly ever use (hence the light trails) and it seemed to add something to the light. 

 

43984970_320972305357415_487398968329741

Candid shot, bit of camera shake, but I liked it. 

 

43914613_885037258372657_755118705346365

More from the streets of Marylebone.  Liked this guys look, really wish the black cab hadn't been obscured by a signpost. 

 

44738825_286805521940303_537824164199224

A swan in the park not far from my house. I cropped the back half away because I wanted the focus to be on it's neck rather than it's arse.  

 

 

Also while we are here,  I think I might get time to photograph the sunset in London this week and I'm toying with the idea of going to the Thames Barrier. I've never been to the barrier before (I've never been east of Charlton to the best of my knowledge) but I figure being on the south bank would make for a better shot, right?

Made it down to the Barrier.  It's about 15-20 minutes walk from Charlton Station, not far from The Valley actually.  I didn't realise just how barren the approaches to the barrier are on the south side, the Thames Path is lovely but it's stuck behind a really grotty industrial estate which I'm guessing was there for years before the barrier was built and probably more fitting with how the docklands were in their heyday.   That said, it's worth the trek:

Looking online it seems the sun sets behind the towers at Canary Wharf in April and September, this time of year sunset is further south but that does mean the light hits the side of the barrier you see from the south bank.  I'm glad I went down there.

Took a brief (11 month) break from photography but hit it pretty hard recently - covered 1600 miles last week! No more planned trips this year though, bar some local stuff I might try and get.

It it has been a good while since I have put any effort into my photography and began to use my camera as a glorified point and shoot, however lately I have felt my love for photography return following the birth of my daughter. I invested in some lighting, speed light, pass through umbrella and stand and set up a bit of a shoot using an old rug thrown over the TV, quite happy with the results!

They are lovely. I'm toying with the idea of getting some lighting for my camera for similar reasons, and I've just dropped some of my hard earned on a 58mm f/1.2 (85mm f/1.8 equivalent) lens with the idea of getting some nice portraits. Everything I've taken so far has been with natural light, a bit of basic research suggests I'd need at least one off camera flash, a diffuser and some kind of light stand. What did you buy if you don't mind me asking? 

 

I've just took a shot with it. Light is from a window, it's a straight out of camera jog (Fuji Acros with green filter) and I kinda love the focal length.

I love candid shots like those, what a great picture. I am in the process of going full frame and a good 85mm is on my wish list for sure, I can imagine that lens will be a dream to shoot with.

 

I shoot with sony (currently a6500) so I got my self a Godox flash and wireless trigger, I initially bought the Godoz TT350s (£69) due to it being smaller and would not look to out of place if I was to mount it on my camera, but I thought to myself I would hardly use it on the camera so have since returned it and have bought it's bigger brother the Godox TT685s (£96). the trigger was £37 which I find to be fantastic value since I have previously spents hundreds on a nikon flash in the past!

 

I wanted to invest in the light stand so I went with a Manfrotto Nano for £59 just incase I wanted to buy larger difuses in the future and didnt want it to topple over on the little one! The pass through umbrella was only £9 and works pretty well. The last thing I needed was a mount for the flash an umbrella for the stand which was another £9. I have seen kits you can but for in and around £50 which include all the above (except the flash/trigger). 

 

I must admit it I have had a lot of fun setting it all up and messing with the settings on the camera and the flash and still only feel like I am scratching the surface with what I can do!

 

I just need some nice backdrops now

Damn, those photos are so sharp and that background......

 

Took delivery of a new camera and lens today, treat myself the Sony a7iii and Zeiss 55mm 1.8, took a shot in door of my daughter. It was dark outside and room was lit only with a lamp, ISO 6400 and I am so impressed with how clean the image is, I imagine I could push the ISO quite further and still retain a lot of the detail.

That's a hell of a shot.  The A7iii seems to be where it's at right now.   You could probably charge for shots like that. 

 

Some more with the 56 f/1.2 lens.  I've only been shooting with it wide open.  These are just linked from my Instagram so there will be more compression than if I'd uploaded to flickr:

Xmas market in Birmingham. There was a lot of light coming off of the stalls but it was three or four hours after sunset so totally dark in the shadows.

No.1 is with a Pentax P30T and a Rikenon 50mm f/2 on Kodak Colorplus. No's 2 & 3 are with my Nikon F70 and Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 on Portra 160, and the last shot is from my phone using the Kultcamera app.

I absolutely love this lens. Believe it or not I've bought it 3 times!! Once for myself, once for my partner and then we got burgled so I bought it again to replace the stolen one. It's a fantastic lens for the price and the size of it makes it really portable.

 

I saw a Waxwing...

Stuck in the sidings at work a couple of hours ago, just put the camera on the deck to see what would come out.  Not bad for a straight out of the camera jpeg. I've found myself either getting fussier or less happy with what I'm shooting of late. Not sure why, but I guess I see so many people with a better eye for composition than I've got and it is a bit disheartening at times.  Some stuff from the past month though:
