Too much harsh light #photography

I’m always assessing the light when I’m taking photos outside and I’ve seen some awful, dark photos this weekend. The weather was scorching and so lots of light but harsh light with dark shadows. I had a few photo-shoots. There were a couple of Summer Fayres at schools and then our Father’s Day event in the park on Sunday. You can’t do much about the harsh light except to use a warm filter but the dark shadows are a bigger problem. You have to use fill flash and it is preferable to use a Speedlight rather than a pop-up. I had to use a pop-up on Sunday because I couldn’t carry around too much equipment.

Strange ideas and brain chemicals #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so I allow you a glimpse into the mind of a serial thinker and ideas person; me. The human brain works on chemicals that can make us feel happy or sad or bring back happy memories or painful memories. Dopamine is the one that zaps the reward centres of our brain and that can be quite addictive. I find it quite difficult to stop eating dark chocolate sometimes and I have to really restrict myself when it comes to beer. Both of these things can lead to strange ideas. Time for a picture…

Local landscapes in focus #photography

You don’t have to travel miles to do landscape photography. There are local landscapes that can provide a good image that your friends will be able to relate to. I went a walk around Brunswick Park, here in Wednesbury, last week and looked for interesting shots. I tried to incorporate the features of the park into the shots as well as the grass and the trees. You can have too much green.

Parking charges at Sandwell Valley #Wednesbury

Sandwell Valley

Sandwell Valley Country Park is the nearest bit of countryside to Wednesbury and a popular place for a day out. I often go there to take photographs. Parking charges will be introduced at my favourite beauty spots starting on the 1st of November. They work out to around 40p an hour because the council are short of money. I doubt if it will raise much money after they have paid for the meters and the wardens. There could have been better ways of making money from the park. Forge Mill has a lot of potential.

Summer in the Black Country #Wednesbury

I was going to write some satire this morning, but I get asked questions about Wednesbury and the Black Country so I’ll give you a glimpse of what it’s like in pictures.

More summer events #photography

Over the weekend I photographed more summer events and the first was the finale of the Wednesbury in Bloom competition at the town hall. That didn’t go quite according to plan. I think  the time of the presentation was changed so I missed it and I might have been told the wrong winner!

The golden hour #photography

Brunswick park near the golden hour

The golden hour in photography refers to the first hour of the day and the last hour of the day when the sun is low in the sky and the light is warmer and softer. I was a little early yesterday evening but the light was still good. (more…)


A walk in the park #life

a walk in the park

It’s Sunday morning again and so once again I let you into the innermost recesses of my mind and share my thoughts with you on this sunny Sunday morning. I am, of course, thinking about the weather, we have more showers forecast. I want to go out and take photographs.  A walk in the park? Maybe not…  (more…)


Promote local #community

Promote local WEDNESBURY

I went out last night taking photos in the twilight. It can be a good time as the light is less harsh. I managed to photograph a couple of pubs and other businesses. Just putting photos on Facebook is helping to promote local business. It’s not just small businesses that I want to promote, though. (more…)


Freedom to create #photography

Wandering around the park gives us freedom to create.

Freedom to create

Freedom to create is restricted for a  lot of artists and photographers. We can be restricted by family life or work. I’m lucky that I can grasp a lot of opportunities. On Sunday, I went to the park because I wanted to photograph this area despite the poor light. I have a plan!  (more…)


One Love Photo Challenge #photography

BANDSTAND IN BRUNSWICK PARK, WEDNESBURY

One love refers to the universal love and respect expressed by all people for all people, regardless of race, creed, or colour. Does it? People say they love all sorts of things these days and that includes all kinds of animals, food, celebrities and anything else they are obsessed with. (more…)


Autumn experiments #photography

AUTUMN 2015 The Delves, Walsall

I was in the mood for experimenting with photography this week and did some shots into the sun and played around with camera settings. This shot was a little boring, so I put my car in the foreground to make it look more interesting.

Wednesbury Carnival in pictures

CARNIVAL 2015 (10)

If you’re a regular reader you’ll know on a Sunday morning I just ramble on about whatever is on my mind. This morning it’s photography, because I photographed the Carnival yesterday. I think a few people will want to see pictures, so I’ll ramble less today! (more…)


Summer carnivals #photography

CARNIVALS 2014 (70)

It’s only just over two weeks now to the summer solstice and we have really good light on sunny days for landscape photography; but I’m looking now for colourful events like summer carnivals and fun days. These two lovely ladies did a great pose in the summer sunshine.  (more…)


Photography: Planning for an event

Brunswick Park, Wednesbury

I’m planning on photographing the carnival in the park this year again. So I went into the park and took some shots in bright sunlight. You can see the really dark shadows in this shot when I shoot south west. (more…)


Neodigital Art | Editing for art

fish and Chip shop

I had problems taking this picture and had to compromise. I only got the art work to the right of the little shop. I decided to crop it and change it to grey scale and add some vignette. When you add vignette in PhotoScape, you have 10 different ones to choose from. I think I chose number 9 for this picture.

Sunday thoughts of beans and things…

I’ve made the copyright notice on today’s photo larger, just so you know! I wandered around Brunswick Park in Wednesbury yesterday afternoon taking photos. It’s a traditional Victorian park, planned out and beautifully planted.

English parks and cream teas

Redhouse 033

Britain has some beautiful Victorian parks and we need them more than ever now. We live such stressed out lives, we need a relaxing break. What better way to relax than a walk in the park? It can be spoiled though, you do occasionally get loud mouthed yobs. People with uncontrolled dogs annoy me too.

Neodigital Art | Artistic editing

Narrowboats at Wednesbury

You can do some interesting things with PhotoScape. I edited this picture and made it mono to give a old fashioned look. I took it earlier in the year and the light was really poor. It looks quite interesting and artistic now. What do you think? I added text to the picture too, that can be useful.
