My first full-frame DSLR

This series goes back to 2005 and was shot on my first full-frame DSLR, the Kodak DCS Pro 14n. I was still shooting on my film Nikons with Nikkor glass at the time and desperately hoping that Nikon would bring out a full-frame digital camera. However Canon beat them to it, and a year later I sold all my Nikons and invested in Canon… Regrets, I’ve had a few…

 No, I do love my Canons, but I still have a nostalgic hankering for that Nikon badge.

The Kodak files were great for portrait work but hopeless for landscapes as they could not handle the fine detail. Looking at these files though, the gritty grainy feel almost has a film-like quality which really suits the subject matter.

Human Ants

I was recently up in Glasgow and found myself having to kill couple of hours in the afternoon. Walking around exploring and taking pictures, I came across this fantastic mural by street artist Sam Bates a.k.a Smug. It was obvious what the artist had in mind and I felt I had to oblige. #streetart #mural

A wild and wind-swept Marianne

 

After spending a really nice day together visiting ‘Grandad Whitstable’ and doing some portrait photography for her art project, my daughter Mally and I packed up the gear and headed back to London. We decided to take a detour along the sea front at Herne Bay to watch the sunset. As we soaked in nature’s visual feast, I grabbed this windswept shot.
