Tools for a weekend up North.

equipment for weekend

Heading up North past Inverness to a wedding this weekend. Pretty excited as its an awesome couple but also to get a few snaps and hopefully get some decent footage.

Have a few on going projects in my mind that are going to rely on some varied footage.

Hopefully the 28mm, 35-70mm and 70-210mm will have me covered.

 

What they had to do.

Have been doing a lot of research on World War I and II photography. It’s interesting stuff and after Dragoon its not as thought its new to me but still it gets me. Photos that literally blow your mind and to think fellas like this below risked their lives just to document the war. Just amazing.

Terrible real estate agent photos – new blog monday

Just stumbled across this. Having spent many an hour browsing property websites and suitably laughing at the photos this is a genius idea. Somehow estate agents often manage to capture a house just horrendously. When they do, those photos get posted up here. Enjoy.

There is a little-known psychological condition, sufferers of which
imagine rooms to be far smaller than they actually are.

This flat is offered furnished, depending on which items the burglars leave behind.

 

 

Facebook fixes

I very rarely upload photos to Facebook, when I do though its a bizarre sensation. Likes, comments, tags and notification overload. I kind of get it, why people upload tonnes of photos onto their Facebook daily. It must give some sort of affirmation high.
