Hi, everyone… Well, I’m still busy having done a clutch of shoots for family, sorted out my preferred shooting modes and settings for the X-Pro2 and a few personal shots, which I’m featuring here.
The featured image (above) is from the shoot at New Brighton and was taken at the same time as the image I posted last time. It had the distinction of appearing on the BBC’s North-West news when they posted a montage of early summer images during the mini-heatwave we had. It and another image from the same shoot were also submitted to weekly competitions on Twitter. Lots of interest but no prizes… yet!
Last Sunday I found myself with half-an-hour or so to spend taking images in Snowdonia. It had been raining on and off all day but early evening saw clearing weather coming in from the west. I went to my favourite location – Dinorwig Quarry – and set to begging some images; you’ll see them below. The last image was taken with my newly acquired Fujinon XF90 ƒ1.2 lens.
Finally, in this rapid roundup of recent events, I’m coming to the end of a project for ƒ50 Collective, of which I’m a member. I’ve been using my time putting together a collection of images, which will be posted on Monday next, 20 June. I’ll let you know when it’s on view.
