Why I Love Adobe Lightroom

When it comes to editing our photos we all have our favourites, whether it’s Photoshop, Gimp, Picassa or Lightroom.  Personally my favourite has got to be Lightroom. And I will get on to why shortly. Before Lightroom I used to edit my photos in Photoshop, and as good as that is I found I was very limited as to what I could do. I feel that photoshop is better suited to designers rather than photographers. I still use photoshop for editing but I only make the final touches in it now. I bought my copy of Lightroom 3 years ago for around £80, it’s gone up a bit in price… Read More

Night Photography In Conwy

So my lovely Sigma 10-22 mm wide angle lens arrived in the post yesterday! I’ve been wanting this lens for a while now & finally decided to just find a second hand one on ebay. As you can tell I am really happy to have it and couldn’t wait to try it out. I went to Conwy at night time to test it out, I’ve wanted to get some long exposure shots of there for a while now but waited until I had the right equipment. It took a while to get the hang of it and there were a few naff shots, as always! But then I managed to… Read More

Vintage lens

Last week I bought myself a nifty 28 mm vintage prime  lens from ebay, and I also managed to get it at the bargain of £19.99. The reason for purchasing this is that most dslr lenses are quite expensive. And I had read a blog a while back which said you could buy yourself an old vintage lens for a fraction of the cost. Obviously for the lens to work you have to buy an adapter and I managed to find an M42 adapter for £2.99. The only down side is that there is no auto focus, it’s manual only! But once you’ve had a play around you soon get… Read More

The Little Orme

Today I was feeling a bit bored and felt like I had been neglecting my photography. So me and John decided to go up to the little orme in Penrhyn Bay. The weather was alright when we left, but as soon as we got there it started to rain. I must admit this grim weather has been putting me off lately when it comes to going out with my camera. But today I just thought I should get on with it and the clouds added some nice drama to the pictures. I’d forgotten how nice it is up there! I feel so lucky living so close to nature and all… Read More

A trip to Llanrwst and a little about me

I feel like I haven’t really had much time to do some personal photography, and that I have been neglecting my portfolio for a while. And after seeing some stunning pictures on Facebook yesterday it made me realise even more that I needed to get out into nature and take some pics. Photography has been my passion since a young age but it’s only in the last couple of years that I have really got into it. My Dad has always been a great photographer and was always taking black and white artisitic shots of me when I was a kid! And so this is where my interest has come… Read More
