This shot at the top is the full frame photo. The next three are all crops that I made with different proportions. I cropped them as an experiment, following on from to my last article on Proportions, Space, Framing. You may like one crop more than another. The musicians in the photograph were taking part in the Cambridge Mill Road Winter Festival. I was so intent on the two men in the centre talking to […]

This is a slice through a Nautilus shell. This particular one is in the Zoology Museum in Cambridge, where I photographed it with my iPhone. I tidied up the reflections and the background, but otherwise, this is a Nautilus shell as the Nautilus made it – except sliced in two.

As you can see, this first image is a […]
Tried out a new camera today. Dismal, dark day, so not the best weather to try out a camera. And the camera has a glitch. It goes dead if it hasn’t been shot for a while, and I have to take the battery out and replace it for the camera to work again. Back to the shop with it… For the moment – a few shots from today.
