At the Farnborough Airshow yesterday whilst I was shooting the static displays, I was  asked why I was shooting with two similar lenses on separate bodies. I had a 14mm on one & a 15mm on the other. However the results from each are very different.

Farnborough International Airshow


Bloody hell that was warm, next time I must remember that the media facilities are not the best place to shoot from. Anyhoo here’s a few pics.

Upgrade time


Having been a user of PhotoShop CS5 since it’s introduction, I have decided  that it is time to bite the bullet & upgrade to the current version, as it was only £79.99 for a year subscription I have updated both the Desktop & the Laptop to PhotoShop CC 2018.

There appear to have been a few changes in the  last 8 years or so, but the most immediate change that I spotted was the Camera RAW screen, which offers quite a few more options when processing RAW images, including profiles including “Landscape”, “Portrait” plus others including my new favourite “Vivid”.

Today was the first of a couple of days at the Farnborough International Airshow, started off nice but was pretty much 100% cloud cover by lunch.


An uncomfortable evening

04/07/2018 Guildford Town Cycle Race.

Yesterday saw me at the Guildford Town Cycle Race over Guildford’s brand new setts (or cobbles), having already decided where I was most likely going to shoot from, I probably should have taken the Pelican Case that the 400mm lives in with me, but I didn’t so an uncomfortable few hours was spent sitting on the kerbstone outside  the Three Pigeons. Additionally as I was on the right side of the road photographically speaking, it was the wrong side for the pub.
