Depends on storm and time of day. Night time is much easier - but i've not had the chance to hit a storm "side on" or far away - which brings much more enjoyable shots as it adds scale.

Ideally i want an evening shot - not dark, but prehaps with the storm side on with a 14 or 15mm, taken from a hill with the scenery lit up. 

 

Mine are really close, mostly at night and sometimes a bit dangerous really but i do get some crackers.

My camera can send jpegs directly to my phone so sometimes I'll do that or sometimes I'll do what you said and take them from the SD card to a computer. I've got a couple of cloud backup folders too, one in lightroom which syncs with my phone and one which uploads to Google any image I save in it.

@Naysonymous, how do you go about uploading stuff to Instagram? Camera to computer to phone to Insta?

 

Love that shot of the moon btw.

 

If you've got cloud storage for your photos that's accessible from both your phone and computer than its pretty easy (eg Apple Photos, Lightroom CC, Google Photos etc). 

You can download from camera to your computer, or use an SD card reader to download to your phone.

 

I quite like Lightroom CC now it's gone through a few iterations and will quite happily edit in iOS or MacOS Lightroom and then share to Instagram from iOS Lightroom

A few from Snowdonia earlier this week. Stunning scenery! I had a great time shooting and hiking. Let me know what you think.

 A few more on my Minolta XD-7 using Kodak 8667073 Tri-X 400 135/36 Negative, Black/White film. Shot with a Minolta 58mm or a Minolta 28mm. Love these lenses.1442281840_Minolta(32of1).thumb.jpg.1ba70a0895019e99da89e5379b900495.jpg1426518322_Minolta(31of1).thumb.jpg.2c1198c99f05f9ae72dadf4a2394765e.jpg1968687460_Minolta(30of1).thumb.jpg.8fe80cbc2e1d2dd1dad575631ce33c78.jpg1306724195_Minolta(22of1).thumb.jpg.4635d58e9e4bcdfabe158e223b0b4bfa.jpg809657251_Minolta(20of1).thumb.jpg.4920c471d3ef8bb8f19c2fe6eab68383.jpg778384161_Minolta(19of1).thumb.jpg.f4d63a161730aa8c04ab78553b44ec09.jpg292736133_Minolta(18of1).thumb.jpg.02647a1a3dea3c331670deaf06ba01fd.jpg309547931_Minolta(15of1).thumb.jpg.5c63ea81419cf2b598c0c371550d1d2a.jpg160671146_Minolta(14of1).thumb.jpg.f462e06cd064f8ac64ebea894c0d3aa9.jpg2125938124_Minolta(13of1).thumb.jpg.b01d0e0712363b1df1d32e6d3c82f020.jpg

Thanks guys, really appreciate it! Definitely still tasking a while to get used to film though. Probably a third of the shots I've been taking per roll have been soft! No focus assist to check sharps any more! :P

Had a grand old time in Rome, although I'm still torn on whether the drivers are scarier than the gulls.

Hey peeps, my other half has suddenly got into photography again. She’s got a Canon  EOS 1200d with the standard lens but wants to get a decent lens to zoom in for nature photos and all that stuff.

 

as you can tell by the above I don’t have a clue about such things. eBay brings up lenses but they appear to be 3rd party ones like ‘Jintu’ which seem cheap (probably for a reason).

 

what do I need to look out for? Is a canon lens refurb the way to go?

 

Ta!

Second hand is usually fine, and I've bought most of my lenses second hand from online retailers. MPB usually have a good selection.

I like the way the saturation is dialed back on that image,  its in keeping with the cars era. The beige shirts help.

Took this one out by Little Venice on Sunday. It's really aggressively cropped but I like how it's turned out. 

 

I still don't really have a 'style' (or a formula if I'm being cynical) but it's fun just experimenting. I think I prefer muted tones so this one all just came together as the sky, the algae and the harsher lighting basically made it impossible to take a bad photo of the canal. Having a load of paddle boarders come through was pure serendipity though.

A few from the weekend. I went to a manor house in Somerset on Sunday afternoon, bought a National Trust membership and took pictures of flowers. If that's not the definition of middle-aged then I don't know what is. I'm only 28 FFS. Ah well.

A few more on my Flickr. Feedback and advice welcome.

 

And nice shot @Naysonymous. I like the way the eye is led from the front to the back and how the industrial background contrasts with the natural foreground.

 A few recent photos taken in my Minolta XD-7 with a Rokkor 58mm Manual lens and using Fujifilm Provia 100F 135/36 colour reversal film. It took two weeks to get the film developed so I forgot I'd even taken some of these. The ice-cream cone was a nice surprise!

Managed to put in a couple of hikes over the last couple of weeks - including some rather lovely views over the omni-present lakes and mountains here in Switzerland...

One of the most photographed buildings in the country, certainly outside of London, but I have access to the car park after closing time and managed to take this a little after 10pm.

Wish I could have got there 20-30 minutes earlier but I still like the shot. Really impressed in how sharp this 16mm prime is. :)
