With this in mind, I wondered about a way to keep my expectations more… Continue reading Expectation Is Everything (5 Killer Questions To Shake Up Your Photography)

Why Photograph In Colour?

Since around October (after the day the colours fell) I’ve been shooting almost exclusively in black and white. Aside from there being less colour around to capture, I realised again that shooting in b/w makes it easier to focus on the core aspects of photography - light and shadow, composition, geometry, texture.

Why I’m Not Making Any Photography Goals For The New Year

This time of year typically brings around a million New Year's resolutions, approximately 999,000 of which will have crashed by the wayside before January's a fortnight old. In a former chapter of my life I was very involved in coaching, and setting (and achieving) goals was very central to the training and process. But whilst… Continue reading Why I’m Not Making Any Photography Goals For The New Year

Adventures In Zero Processing – Hipstamatic + iPad

Recently we talked about the “impossible dream” of zero processing - making photographs almost entirely in camera without then spending as much time (or more) on post processing the images to get the look we want. I have a fairly minimal and effective workflow using LightRoom, but still don't particularly enjoy it. So I've started exploring… Continue reading Adventures In Zero Processing – Hipstamatic + iPad

24 Lessons (Part 1) From 24 Months Of Photo Blogging

My first post debuted on 35hunter back in December 2015. Now, some 24 months and 110 blog posts later, it seems a good time to reflect on what I've learned - about blogging, about photography, and about myself. This started as a single post, but quickly meandered in excess of 2000 words. The final tally… Continue reading 24 Lessons (Part 1) From 24 Months Of Photo Blogging

The Best Place For Photographers To Connect Online

The internet is a wonderful tool for connecting like minded people, as well as giving us a number of platforms and forums for us to meet up, hang out, and share our mutual passions. Recently I've been trying to broaden my horizons, and find new places to meet and talk with fellow photographers.

Just Don’t Ask Me Which Camera I Used

Along my camera journey of the last few years I've simplified and let go in a number of ways. In the earlier days of 35hunter, when I posted a photograph I would add a caption that included the camera, lens and film used, whether it was expired, what ISO I shot it at, and sometimes… Continue reading Just Don’t Ask Me Which Camera I Used
