  1. Thoughts on the Fujifilm X100V

    2020-10-23 20:44:00 UTC

    I have now had a couple of months with the Fujifilm X100V. It is an excellent camera, a good compromise of features that fits a specific purpose for me, for every day carry This is my outpouring of opinions, hopefully helpful for readers but as always, also for me to

  2. Close but Unnoticed

    2020-10-07 12:32:11 UTC

    You may have noticed a slight reorganisation of the photographs on this site. Over a few years I have done a lot of work on close up, wide angle “candid portraits”, I have never thought of this as a project although looking back I think it probably is, certainly they…

  3. City of London

    2020-09-22 14:53:50 UTC

    With restrictions on overseas breaks at the moment, the City of London feels a little bit like travel, it’s not somewhere I regularly go - the West End being my “home town” for street photography.  Less people and more architecture or scenes means I have been comfortably using the Nikon…

  4. Behind the camera - studying the photographer

    2020-01-26 21:45:34 UTC

    The photography podcasts I enjoy the most cause me to think, I was listening to an older episode of TWIP last week and Frederick Van Johnson was catching up with Rick Sammon. Rick quoted Freeman Patterson (from his book ShadowLight) “a camera always looks both ways” - in other words…

  5. A few days in New York City with the Nikon Z6

    2019-11-02 10:00:41 UTC

    There is something about New York City, friends are always the best reason for me to visit, but from a photography point of view it’s the people and the light. The noise, the hustle and bustle is a gift for candid street photographers, stories on every corner - the people.…

  6. Film vs. Digital Revisited - Opposites Attract

    2019-06-20 16:29:41 UTC

    For my street photography, I predominantly use an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II - alongside this but less frequently, I use a 1958 Leica M3 - for me these are close to being the best cameras for the way I take pictures - but they couldn’t be more different Olympus…

  7. The Street Photography Audience

    2019-05-17 21:20:32 UTC

    “Photos don’t exist without other peoples’ eyes” Interesting words from photographer John Sevigny on the always thought provoking United Nations of Photography podcast with Grant Scott For sure there are times that photographs are personal, for me only, but listening to this podcast was one of those moments that I…

  8. Mugshots - some of the best photography ever

    2019-04-25 17:32:29 UTC

    Just a short one… John Hollings - Larceny I was watching “Sofa Sessions” on YouTube just now, a relatively new series where photographer Martin Parr chats with other photographers. This session was with street photographer Bruce Gilden. Towards the end, at around 18 minutes, Gilden is talking about quality in…

  9. Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm 1:1.2 PRO Review

    2019-04-11 20:41:31 UTC

    Why have I finally dropped my resistance and chosen to buy this lens I have always favoured the 35mm focal length in film and “full frame” digital - it’s not the first time I have compromised on weight, size, price, even functionality, to get the best I can possibly squeeze…

  10. Developing in Street Photography

    2018-06-30 18:44:00 UTC

    Why Street? I wrote a few words on why I enjoy travel photography back in November. As you will probably know if you have followed me to this blog, my main interest for many years has been what is now described as street photography. I do street photography (I prefer…

  11. 5 Reasons to Go Wider - super wide angle lenses

    2018-05-11 20:01:29 UTC

    A number of kit zooms start at around the 28mm mark - or “full frame equivalent” focal length, some start a bit wider, but the focus of this article is to look at some of the attractions of going out specifically with a super-wide, 24mm or wider for “normal” people…

  12. Workflow and Post Processing Street Photography

    2018-02-22 18:28:53 UTC

    Following a couple of forum threads on DPReview, I thought I would add a short article on my RAW workflow, with details on how I post process an image. I have learnt a lot from others and think it’s important to share skills not keep secrets.  Firstly a note on…

  13. Street photography route and locations in London

    2018-01-18 15:17:53 UTC

    A busy and large city like London can be challenging to navigate, even for locals. It’s a hotspot for photography and every site, alley and monument has been well photographed. The special thing with candid people photography though, is that each picture will always be unique and that is a…

  14. Seal - Always carry a camera

    2017-11-22 22:20:39 UTC

    This afternoon I was walking through the West End with my sister and niece and followed the sound of music to the BBC - I was lucky enough to walk past as Seal was doing a soundcheck for a later performance. Conditions were far from ideal, no time, very crowded,…

  15. Thoughts on my Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II

    2017-09-28 21:14:00 UTC

    Having used Nikon for decades, it has taken a while to get used to Olympus and I am still learning, but over time I am becoming more and more impressed with the system. I am still far less fluent, but getting there It’s an unusual choice for my main focus…

  16. Olympus OM-D E-M1 - Street and Travel

    2017-06-06 15:18:01 UTC

    The Olympus OM-D E-M1 beside the Leica X typ 113 and EVF I purchased my Olympus OM-D E-M1 second hand mainly for street photography, perhaps travel, primarily looking to address two shortcomings of my Leica X typ 113 as my “go to” compact travel camera - lack of a built…

  17. Sky Arts’ Master of Photography Series 2

    2017-05-26 12:58:36 UTC

    My thoughts - Travel, Candids and Controversy Last night saw the first episode of the second series of Master of Photography on Sky Arts. The series follows Sky Arts’ competition to find the “Master of Photography” through eight episodes, each presenting a different challenge to the participants, who have been…

  18. Nikon 20mm f/3.5 AI-S

    2017-04-20 07:42:00 UTC

    20mm is not a focal length I have used frequently but it’s fun to work with — 35mm is pretty normal, 24mm is definitely wide but can still be used easily in many situations, its a nice focal length for travel and landscape, 20mm gives an extreme point of view.…
