Updates And News
Nikon and Canon owners may sneer and mock - but over the weekend, I became the proud owner of a Sony A77 m2. 24mega pixels of translucent mirror technology and capable of shooting 12 frames per second. Now all I need to hunt for is things to take pictures of whilst learning the full potential of this beast.
Where? I built it...from the ground up. It's not an 'off-the-shelf' product. I wrote it and designed the limited graphics and it's a little rough around the edges in places. Hosting was around $10, the domain name was around $20 - so about £20 GBP.
Working in the fast paced world of IT, I get to play with and use the latest and greatest versions of software. You get a lot of experience and you reach a point where you feel that you want to build something for yourself - this is part of what I do. What you see is the result of what was just a little coding playground. OK - so I'm only getting about 15 (genuine) visitors a day - but it's enough - at least people are getting aware of who I am and what I can do.
Maybe this post doesn't really belong in what has become a photography website - maybe a new section is required!
Sunny, cold, seriously unfriendly light, yet I've never let that beat me...A shot from a shoot in Cambridge this afternoon.
Walking through the Centre MK and there it was....A Jessops shop. Quickly looking through the range of SLR's on display and there she was....All £800 worth of her. Some people may scoff at Sony as a choice for an SLR (technically an SLT), but I actually quite like them. It think it's called moving forward with the times! Now my only problem is that I haven't quite got the cash to drop on it...and with Christmas coming up, etc, etc.... It may be a little bit of a wait, unless I can remortgage the wife, sell a kidney, win the lottery etc,etc.
It's that Halloween time of year again and I've got an awesome idea... Although it's gonna be messy. Message me if interested...
