After my friends image was stolen and used by a website, I`ve decided to watermark my images from now on.
I thought a lot about this before Amanda made me the graphic. I worried that watermarking might come across a bit presumptuous, or that I`m beginning to take my hobby to seriously.
You`ll also notice that I`m also using my name and not Poppet Pictures, again.. am I becoming too serious?

Back at the local pub, The Fishermans Arms on the Headland, Hartlepool.
I think I got the settings right on the camera this time.
Most of the locals have got used to me snapping away, and some even have asked for prints.

I`m not sure what was on fire at Haverton Hill, but I whizzed over for some shots.
This was taken on the second day. Not as much action, but the sun caught the smoke. I shot with a polariser, which gave an outstanding blue sky.

First time shooting a band at a live gig, and discovered it`s not easy.
The shots came out grainy and soft, but I think I managed to capture the atmosphere and will be definitely giving it another go.
Presence are the band by the way, and they were playing The Studio, Hartlepool.
It`s all in the settings and knowing your camera.. practice practice practice.
