Small compact - large sensor.

I took the Ricoh GR with me to Brighton so I could use an inconspicuous small camera for some night work rather than lug the large Nikon D3s around at night.

I tried to find appropriate items to rest the camera on so I could use long exposures on self timer.

The first image consists of two images merged to create one wide angle shot.

Stunning little camera!

She and I have just returned from two days in Brighton, we had fantastic weather dry and sunny but cold.

I did a photo session with She, I grabbed a couple of images by the old boat then as the sun was setting I used it behind her to create a nice halo and allow the subtle colours of the setting sun to create a nice background - all images with the D3s and the superb 24-120 f4 lens.

Needless to say I am pleased with the results - She is also happy!

Boxing Day drag hunt

I went to the annual Boxing Day Hunt meet in the local park with my good friend Rob, it was a deceptively cold morning with flat lighting but we still managed to capture some images of the event.

A good turn out of riders and spectators as usual and Rob and I managed to grab some arrival shots then position ourselves on an old hay cart to get shots of the departure.

I used the Olympus EM1 with Pany 100-300mm for the arrival and general shots before the start and switched to the Nikon D3s with 24-120 for the images as they came past us as I wanted good fast AF.

The arrival and pre-start images (EM1)
