The blog is back!

Its been a long time since I found the time to write a blog post but things are going to change. Work commitments have meant that the photography has taken a back seat but now I'm back on it and the photography is going to be getting more of my time.

Last night Scarborough saw the arrival of over 100 Honda Goldwings here to raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, a fantastic cause.

To capture this image I positioned myself on the Spa Bridge which overlooks the seafront. For this type of image a tripod is essential as long exposures are involved. As the light levels fall exposure times increase. This means that this type of image is produced without the need for any additional filters. 

If anyone has any questions relating to this image then please feel free to contact me.

Having set this blog up in 2016 it was soon neglected. I didn't get out with the camera half as much as I would have liked so had nothing to write. This is all going to change in 2017.

My photography related New Years Resolutions are as follows:

  1. Dedicate one day a week to getting out with the camera and practice my photography skills. The only way to improve as a photographer is to get out there and shoot. Trial and error is the only way to learn. Even if you head out with the camera and return without at least one good shot its all experience.
  2. Last Christmas I decided that I was going to work on a book. Sadly, that never happened and I didn't get out enough to capture the necessary images. This year will be different, I am already planning the locations I want to shoot and working on the best times of year to shoot them. I will keep you all updated as this project takes shape throughout the year via my blog.

I ended the year by capturing a few frosty scenes in the areas local to me but will be venturing further afield in the New Year.

Happy New Year to you all and I wish you all health and happiness for 2017!
