Including, the things to consider, the exposure triangle, and basic settings. Check out other photography tips here: Things to Consider WhatContinue reading “The Exposure Triangle”
**Sorry for the no show I’ve had so much happen (all will be revealed) *** I haven’t really been posting photography related things recently, mainly due to the combination of working very long shifts and being in the awkward waiting transitional period of graduating and continuing my life as an adult… Camera equipment can beContinue reading “Photography Tips #14: Moving to Mirrorless”
After an action-packed first week of lectures, matches, cheer, and editing I can finally take a little extra time to reflect on my new experiences. This week with some Lacrosse Sports Photography. The University has many many sports teams from sports I’ve never heard of like Korfball to the more common sports such as FootballContinue reading “Lacrosse Sports Photography”
Sports Season is back! Heading back inside with the onset of rain, wind, and cold brings new and exciting challenges to me as a photographer. Luckily I can move indoors, this time with my Sports Photography Netball Edition. Last week I photographed my first BUCS Netball game.

Nothing can really beat that feeling you get when you wake up with the sun streaming through the crack in your curtains hiding a beautiful blue sky and promising warm temperature. Being on holiday in Normandy, every day seems to promise such wonders, so why not make the most of it and go to theContinue reading “Why Go to Champrepus Zoo?”
Over the last few weeks, nothing really has happened on this blog as I’ve been living it up in the beautiful French countryside. Due to the nature of my holiday, I didn’t really take many horse or sport-related photos but plenty of landscapes. So I give to you my first landscape and holiday post!

When I first got a bit more serious about equine and show photography, admittedly I brushed off the idea of photographing sheep and cattle shows. I put this mainly down to my ignorance of not exactly understanding the showing of these animals, and definitely not understanding how one sheep is better than another sheep that looksContinue reading “Sheep In Hand Photography”
With the rugby season creeping ever closer with pre-season friendlies in full swing, I got the pleasure to tag along to a Welshpool game. My experience with rugby photography has been strictly restricted to rugby 7s. Rugby 7s is a game that is shorter, has fewer players, and generally has a faster pace. Being used toContinue reading “How to Take Photos of Rugby”
As I mentioned in my first post, I’ve had some experience with sports photography, especially with rugby. Being at a Welsh university it’s hard to not be involved in the sport one way or another albeit playing, spectating, refereeing, or taking photos. In this post, I’m going to talk about equipment I recommend and settings,Continue reading “Rugby Sports Photography”
