Leeds Artsmix Diary – Fudge & Near Misses

All Fudged Out It was a beautiful sunny day at Saturday’s Leeds Artsmix Market. Hope’s were high with a position next to the fudge stall guaranteeing a constant stream of traffic, and sure enough fudge of every possible flavour was soon being devoured by the hungry and happy Leodises. But as the morning wore on, and the crowds at the…

Leeds Dock with the RX1Rii

Waking up at 5am to a promising sunrise, I finally got my act together and headed into work to take some images of Leeds Dock and Sky’s Shiny New Technology Campus. The sunrise didn’t quite materialise but the quality of the early morning light combined with the stillness of the water made the early start…

Lochen na h-achlaise

Rifling through past images to print for our last Leeds Artsmix market before Christmas I came across two photos of Lochan na h-Achliase, taken over five years ago with my trusty Nikon D700. I must have shot them to stitch together into a panoramic, but it’s taken me until now get around to it. Still, better…

Profitis Ilias, Santorini

Sigma Merrill DP3 – What A Steal!

Back in November I had my hands on a Sigma Merrill DP1 for 5 brief days before thieves broke into my hotel room in Slovenia and carried it, along with a brand new Fuji XE2, away across the border. Fast forward to March 4th and I was sat drinking tea at the Photography show at the…

Yorkshire Dales Waterfalls

Catrigg Force and Hardraw Force Rain! It had rained all weekend. It had rained all year. Land full to bursting; rivers invading the surrounding fields … … and it was raining again as we walked, forcing us to dance past puddles that blocked our way to the falls. Rounding the bend we were met first…

Sony RX1 Picture Effects – Ljubljana

Ok, so it’s not for purists, but sat on a flight home from Slovenia, minus laptop, books or newspapers, I started playing with the RX1 picture effects. On the small screen it was difficult to see the results, but back at home I have to say they look pretty cool, and in some instances are…
