Monday started quite rocky for me mentally. Sometimes I get myself stuck in a rut with life due to being lazy and it is lazy. Later on in the day I started to feel quite poorly and had cold and flu like symptoms to I […]

Exploring an Abandoned Church In Lincolnshire – Photography Post!

Exploring an Abandoned Church In Lincolnshire – Photography Post!

Sometimes I forget how beautiful 50mm images look and it wasn’t until I saw these Images that I truly rekindled my love with this beautiful lens. I edited these images on the Adobe Lightroom mobile app.

Abandoned Church In Lincolnshire

I find graveyards really peaceful places to be and I love walking around and weirdly feeling close to so many people. It fills me with so many questions about the people beneath the graves, who were they? What did they do?

We went to the church to do a fun little ghost hunt, the church was closed due to a fire and thought that this place would be creepy, but actually, it was quite the opposite. It was so serene, even with the pending storm clouds lurking.

Nicola was in charge of the infrared camera and I think she really enjoyed it. We didn’t pick anything up on camera though. Stewart was vlogging the event, not that there was much to vlog about but if he posts it I’ll be sure to post the link here.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post.

 

Woodside Wildlife Park – Sunday Sum Up

Woodside Wildlife Park – Sunday Sum Up

Happy Sunday! This week has been a busy one, more DIY has been done and a family day out and it has exhausted me, so much so that I couldn’t get myself out of bed for the majority of the day, which absolutely sucked but […]

Macro Photography Wars – Canon 6d vs. iPhone 7 plus

Macro Photography Wars – Canon 6d vs. iPhone 7 plus

I have always been a fan of Macro photography. Since the age of 15, I’ve been exploring the many possibilities within the genre. I am much more a contributor of the fine art aspect now and what I mean by that is I much prefer to create something that looks out of the ordinary, almost alien-like when photographed close up.

In this post, I photographed the same thing with both my Canon 6D and iPhone 7 with macro lenses. This allowed me to be able to fairly compare both standards of the images against one another and make a justified judgment on which I think performed better. Converting the images to black and white also helped with making the decision more accurate as it meant that the tone and saturation of the colors wouldn’t sway me to maybe one camera when the macro quality is better on the other.

 

Macro photography is a popular genre of photography amongst all abilities. Beginners tend to gravitate towards it due to it being easily accessible and flexible enough to do wherever the location.

On the left-hand side, you will see the Canon 6D macro photography and on the right-hand side are the iPhone 7 ones. It would be really interesting to know which ones you think look better in regards to detail of the image.  I  tend to gravitate a lot more towards the iPhone when I am wanting to create my fine art macro photography as I am able to get in much closer to the subject than what I am with the canon, meaning it requires a lot less time in post-processing because I don’t have to worry about cropping the image.

A Spring Throwback! – Spring Is Coming, I think!

A Spring Throwback! – Spring Is Coming, I think!

Spring is on it’s way well a truly. The trees are budding and I have snowdrops growing in my garden. Autumn is my favourite season, however, spring comes as a close second because just the same as autumn, full of such wonderful colours.
To celebrate the fact that spring is coming, although due to the amount of snow we have had this month is certainly doesn’t feel like spring is nearby. here are some throwback photographs from late spring last year. I look forward to getting out with my camera and capturing the beauty in spring 2018. It feels so refreshing to see so much green within photographs of nature, I can already smell my favourite smell of all time lingering back into my life, cut grass… someone really needs to create that smell in a fragrance because I will be all over that.
Please, enjoy these photographs and share with me the excitement of spring and warmer times coming, we hope!
