Preparing for an event #photography

There will be a few events in the coming weeks and months that I’ll try and photograph. Preparing for an event means considering the right camera settings. On Saturday, we have an Easter Eggstravaganza in and around the town square and so I’ll go to photograph that. Mostly, I’ll be photographing people using my 28 –300 lens and often zooming in from a distance away.

To spark some kind of conversation #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so I’ll share my thought with you once again. This week I went to a retirement home and took them an album of old photos to pass around. It’ll be a conversation piece and often that is what we need, something to spark a conversation. Even on social media, I post things to try to spark some kind of conversation.

Recording history #photography #history

There are many different categories of photography and I enjoy most of them. I try to photograph historic buildings and I am very aware of how quickly these buildings can disappear. I photograph streets of terraced houses as well as the larger listed buildings. Recording history for future generations is worthwhile and it can be done in a few different ways.

Three skills to depend on #ramble

It’s Sunday morning again and so I’ll share my thoughts with you. What am I good at? I do writing, photography and social media. These are my three skills. I used one social media channel to support local councillors who are up for re-election next month today. I’ll get some criticism for that but we have to resist the forces of hate and extremism. I try to do what is right and I pointed out that a couple of local councillors do a lot of good volunteer work. There is a division between them though so maybe after this election they can forget past problems and see what they have in common.

The power of social media influence #politics

There is something of a revolution going on in politics with major splits in the Tory ranks and now a big split in Labour between the moderates and the Corbyn supporters. MP’s have left the major parties to join a new independent group and Labour councillors who have been deselected are talking of standing as independents. The extremists causing the divisions seem to forget that these councillors have influence and in particular social media influence.

White balance, apertures and shutter speed #photography

I went to West Bromwich Manor House on Sunday and I was taking photos inside the Manor House and outside too. It was a cloudy day and so I set the white balance to cloudy to compensate for the grey sky.

It is a grey day #ramble #photography

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I’ll allow you into my innermost thoughts. What’s on my mind this week? Well, mainly photography because I’m off to West Bromwich Manor House this morning to take some pictures. It is a grey day but I’ll make the most of it.

Out of the frying pan #politics

So Theresa May is giving up and waiting to hand over power to a new leader, but who? I think if it’s bumbling Boris it could be a case out of the frying pan and into the fire! Iain Duncan-Smith had his chance at the leadership but he has all the charm of a rattlesnake. Could pompous Jacob Rees-Mogg take the reins? I doubt if he would be popular with more moderate Tories so they will be stuck to find anyone with the authority to take over. Brexit is a shambles so who would want the job? I feel a little sorry for Theresa May, she tried to clean up a mess created by Cameron.

Using different settings #photography

As usual over the weekend I was out taking photographs. On Saturday, it was an event and I was taking photographs of people and on Sunday it was landscape and I was photographing scenes and buildings. I was using different settings for different types of subject.

Litter pick blues #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and once again I’ll ramble on and share my thoughts with you. This week, I’ve been trying to promote the photography competition being run as part of  Sandwell Pride of Place Project. We are expecting a lot of last-minute entries. People will wait for good light and then go out and shoot some pictures. Then you have to edit and choose the best one. I did a photo shoot myself yesterday. I was invited along to the Sons of Rest in Wednesbury where they are doing renovations and installing a security alarm. There was also a litter pick in Brunswick Park.

Political delusions of grandeur #politics

Yes, leave the European Union and we can get our empire back and everything will be hunky-dory. Britons shalt not be slaves to Johnny Foreigner and we will not accept their benefit scrounging scum in our green and pleasant land. The reality, however, is that we need the immigrants because we didn’t train enough doctors and nurses for our needs. Cameron dresses up in Victorian garb for the Lord Mayor’s Ball and slips into the delusional belief that we still have the empire and can still rule the waves. The reality, dear boy, is that we are a tiny island that has to do deals with other nations to survive. We are now in the process of breaking the biggest deal we have ever signed to appease the nationalist bull-shitters of the European Research Group. These are political delusions of grandeur on a grand and destructive scale.
