Little & Littler…..

I pass these horses on the way to and from work everyday but noticed an even smaller one yesterday so stopped to take some photos.

The foal was very nervous so I kept my distance but still managed to get a few.

Old School……….

I took part in the Cardiff Photomarathon event on Saturday and as well as attempting to take photographs of the topics provided I also tried to take some candid street shots.

I met a photographer using a film camera to document a “Naked Cycle Ride” through the Cardiff streets, we had a brief chat about the pros and cons of Digital versus Film before we were swamped with loads of Bicycles.

Olympus E-PL1

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have been using my new Olympus E-PL1 camera and playing about with the various Art Filters, and must say I am very impressed at what this little camera produces.

I especially like the Gritty B&W filter best.

The quality of the Raw files it produces with the 14-42mm lens is excellent. It has the added bonus of being able to use various other manufacturers lenses with the appropriate adapter.

I can’t wait to try out some of my Nikon primes. I thoroughly recommend this camera especially at the price it is at the moment £279 here in the UK.

This is an example of what the Raw file produces…….

A quick candid from yesterdays Wedding shoot……….

Started to edit photos from my first wedding shoot for Bethan & Ian.

I really liked this candid snap taken during the hair and makeup leg of what was a very long day, but enjoyable nevertheless.
