Just a quick post

The Watermark.

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?

A year ago Amanda to me to a zoo in the Lakes with my new camera.

Today we went again.. I`d like to think I`ve improved.

The Fishermans Arms, The Headland, Hartlepool.
My first use of textures on top of high contrast.

I think it throws the picture back in time.

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.

A revisit to an old disused mine.

Have I improved in the last year? No frames or fancy editing.

Another picture from the Fishermans Arms.

I love this picture because of the range of subjects, expressions and setting.

You can invent your own story to this one.

Still Burning

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.

In the air

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.
