New Scientist think I am artistic

September 17, 2008

Yesterday I spotted that a photo of mine was getting an unusual number of views and upon investigating I realised that a New Scientist article is linking to one of my photographs. Its an article about the future of photography – stuff like improved image stabilisation and reducing glare…

Arran

September 15, 2008

Here are some pictures from Liz and I’s trip to Arran this August. I liked some of the pictures I got from the trip but overall I was kind of disappointed in myself … lots of the pictures were just not as good as I wanted them to be. Also that the trip over on the ferry presented some amazing opportunities for photographs – out on deck there were a wealth of characters, there were a pack of jet skiers chasing the boat, there where some particularly bold seabirds chasing the ship and swooping down taking stuff from peoples hands. I took a whole roll of film and expected great things … but then discovered my camera had chewed up the film 😦

Also I am kicking myself about this picture (a repeat from my last post I know):

… this was the last in a roll of film and while I was changing it a girl on a horse galloped past leaving the family staring after it … it could have made a really great picture. Oh well maybe digital does have some merit…

Anyway here are some pictures…

Diversity Delivers Exhibition

September 2, 2008

Yesterday I had an exhibition of a few of my pictures (along with 2 other photographers). It was part of the Launch of Diversity Delivers which is an initiative by the Office of the Commissioner for Public Apointments in Scotland ( http://www.publicappointments.org/ ) aimed at enhancing equal opportunities in Scotland’s ministerial public appointments process. The venue was the Scottish Storytelling Centre on the high street which I think is a rather cool building.

I chose ‘people’ pictures where possible, mostly my attempts at street photography. I thought it went pretty well and was impressed by the other 2 photographers work.

Here are the pictures I had on show …. ( and here as a slideshow )
