    The relentless march of technology

    I've been shooting with the same 16GB CF cards for a good few years now, and I've got the feeling they are getting a bit janky. So, after I unintensionally misplaced them, I finally got round to ordering a 64GB CF card (a Lexxar UDMA 7 160MB/s that I've been fond of in the smaller size) My oh...

    Gone Fishin' 14

    It's been a wee while since I posted one of these, but today was a real red letter day. With heavy mist in the morning, but clear skies and stunning golden December light all day a mate and I embarked on a bit of an epic 9hr session. The views were stunning all day with mist rolling in and out...

    My own website

    I had created my own web page a while ago using the free adobe portfolio that they bundle with lightroom. I was never quite happy with it though, so last year I bought a domain, and created a new page to showcase my work. I couldn't find the time to work on it much up until now, so it was just a...

    Ablaze

    Out fishing today and spotted the sun setting behind some trees on a hill during a heavy shower of rain, making it look like they were on fire. Coudn't resist a quick shot! One of the great things about my hobby is that you get to see sights you wouldn't normally be there for. Ablaze by...

    New monitor considerations

    I'm in the market for a new monitor to replace my old 1080p TN panel. Unfortunatley, I do a bit of FPS gaming, so I'm looking for something with an IPS screen, high refresh rate and a wide gamut! Budget is around £400 ish. I'd love a 4K monitor, but realistcally I think this will be outside my...

    Easdale Island Quarries

    My first landscape shots for a long time given lockdown and work, but it was fun to get out and I really enjoy being on this small island for a short break. It's quite difficult to photograph, and its a place wher getting decent compositions can be challenging. But we had one spectacular sunset...

    Islands of the Sea

    The Garvellachs (aka the Rough Islands, or Islands of the Sea) from my recent holiday. Just getting through processing the shots I took, and this was one I didn't think of much after I clicked the shutter, but I'm pretty pleased with it now it's processed and cropped to panoramic format. On this...

    Blackbird and Goldfinch

    Two bird shots from my recent holiday, A thrush (I think) who was very curious and got very close whiole looking for birds and a goldfinch who seemed to be eating dandilion seeds from the grass in front of the cottage. The goldfinch was a little too far away to get a really good shot of, but I...

    New phone day!

    I ordered a new Samsung S21 Ultra on Friday since the charging port is getting less and less reliable in my old cell phone. It turned up this morning! The delivery driver said that it was due for delivery on Monday, but he thought he'd just come round with it today which was ideal for me. I need...

    Chilling out on an island

    Just got myself away for a wee holiday to a cottage on a small, fairly remote island with Mrs weepete and her best friend. We've done it for a few years now but really fantastic to be out here, be on island time and just chill out. Moutains in the background, sea on the doorstep, lovely people...

    RF Mount

    So, I was just speding some time browsing some big whites lenses considering what my next purchace would eventually be when I suddenly realised that Canon have stopped development on their DSLRs, are wholesale moving to mirrorless, and that the EF lens mount's days are numbered. I've not yet met...

    Some Backyard Birding

    Finally got round to processing a few shots I'd taken last month in the back garden. I'm really hoping to catch a goldfinch that very occasionally visits the garden, and I saw a bullfinch last weekend locally, so I'm hoping we'll get a few more exciting birds visiting if we keep the feeders...

    A Cambetown Landscape and some birds at Loch Spynie

    Had a bit of an epic journey from Cambeltown to Burghead a couple of weeks ago with work. Managed to stop breifly on the way to grap a quick landscape shot and got a little time after work and get out to Loch Spynie nature reserve and see what it was like. The hide was closed, and birds were a...

    Gone Fishin' 11

    Out for the first time in ages after travel restrictions were lifted last weekend. I had expected to be hoaching, but my socially distanced friend and I were the only shore anglers to be seen. It's been 6 months since I set foot on a beach, so wonderful to have a cracking day to be out. Gone...

    Standards have dropped...

    Sorry everyone, Back in the day when I joined this forum standards were pretty harsh. If you posted up a photo with a defect it'd be found, exposed and called out. That's how I improved. It may seem harsh, but it's been one of the best things I had to push me on. Critique was standard...

    Livestreaming camera reccomendations please!

    Hi all, My daughter has decided she'd like to do some livestreaming of makeup tutorials and has asked for a camera for Christmas. I'm a stills guy, but have no knowledge of video let alone streaming! She's got a very basic camera knowledge, mostly with her phone (but dad will be on hand to...

    Lightroom contact metadata question

    Hi all, I'm just sorting myself out with a proper website now where I'm going to offer some prints for sale. As part of that I'm going to do a few social media pages to hopefully help drive a bit of traffic. I've sorted my portfolio and set up so I can manage the images in lightroom, but I was...
