Canon AE-1

I’ve been using the Canon AE-1 David (@pomennedy from Simple as Milk) lent me. To be honest, I got my first camera at age 19 (a point and shoot Panasonic), by which point the move into digital was well under way. I then upgraded to a dSLR and never looked back. Using this has been my first introduction to film, and what a lovely introduction it’s been. I’m hoping film will change the way I think about each frame, or at the very least inject some excitement into photography once again.

 
 

Tam’s Canon

So, this weekend was interesting. On Sunday I held the second Glasgow Photo Walk alongside a workshop with Dan Rubin. I’ve never organised an event in my life, so it was a big learning experience and there are a few things I would do differently, but everybody – myself included – had a blast. I even picked up a few photography tips.

I’m so grateful to those who bought a ticket, not to mention Dan for being so heavily involved. Thank you!

 
 

Jack Smith Is…

It was Saturday morning and Jack arrived in Glasgow, complete with an entire box of Krispy Kreme’s for my fatty fat arse. I enjoy showing people around Glasgow because – as much as it has acquired a terrible reputation over the years – I know the good bits and how to sell the city; Tribeca for brunch, the lighthouse for a panoramic view of the (diamond in the rough) city, or a lunchtime drink in Ashton Lane. I think I sold it to him, although that might be because Indie took a shine to him.

 
 

Canon 1100D

If I had a pound for every time someone said “I love your photos, you must have a great camera”, I’d be able to buy all of Canon’s stock. It’s a backhanded compliment, and one that irritates me as I know anybody could get a cracking photo from a cheaper, entry level dSLR. Like the Canon 1100D. Here is a portrait I took of Ayden with the 1100D and 50mm. It produces a nice, crisp image wich I’ve done my usual processing on, and it looks just as good as other shots I’ve taken with my 5DMKIII. It’s not really about the body, but learning how to use it, equipping it with good glass, and practicing. Can I get an …

 
 

Laura

The best friendships are the ones that require minimal effort to keep strong, in my opinion. Laura used to be a regular face on my blog and Flickr stream, but we fell out of touch for, yesterday being the first time we’ve seen each other since some point last year.  We did a bit of evening street photography, though the light began falling fast at around 8pm, then visited another friend we hadn’t seen for a while. The whole evening was quite spontaneous and exactly what I needed.
