On the beach – I believe the simple look of this image works well with the line of posts leading into the sea, alongside the lady walking her dog, in an otherwise empty scene.

After a week of cloudy dull skies, Tuesday was reasonably sunny, so I took full advantage and jumped on a train to Walton-on-the-Naze. Here are a few of my favourite photos from the day!

Under the pier; I particularly like how the old broken stumps look as though they are leading you to the water.

Naze Tower – in this image I like how the brickwork contrasts to  the sky behind it; and felt this was shown best in black and white.

Starting a project?

Blog Post, Nikon

 

So after spending most of yesterday with my new camera I have to say I’m very impressed! The thing that strikes me the most is that compared to my old Pentax it’s so quiet!  Well, I say the camera is quiet, I know it’s down to the Silent Wave Motor in the 50mm lens, but still, it’s whisper quiet!

Commuter 


 

I think that this was my favourite image of the day and it got me thinking about starting a photo project. I was thinking about maybe doing a black and white series covering commuters? I realise it’s not the most interesting subject in the world but I figure you have to start somewhere and also it will push me to make it more interesting.

So I was wondering what people think? How I should go about it, any tips for doing something like this, etc. any help would be greatly appreciated!

New Camera

Blog Post, New Gear, Nikon

 

So today I made the switch from Pentax to Nikon!

I used to have a Pentax K-50, with the standard kit lense(18-55) and a 35mm lense. The 35mm was what I used pretty much exclusively after purchasing and whilst I loved my first DSLR I figured an upgrade was in order. After about 3 days of research I opted for the Nikon D7200 with the 50mm f/1.8.

New Gear!


 

I’m super excited to get out there and try it, however, I’m currently stuck in doors on this awesome sunny day waiting for a delivery! The. Worst.

Once I do however, expect some new images and maybe another blog post?
