I’ve been experimenting with using my iPhone XS to take video while I use my X-T3 to photograph still images. I had this idea that it would be fun to capture the iPhone set up to take a photo, but when I took the shot the image on the iPhone was very very dark and I thought that it wouldn’t work.
One of the nice things about living so close to the SVR is that it’s easy to go down there for a short photo session. Last weekend the Autumn Gala was held though I was down at Kidderminster for the unveiling of 50 033, I took advantage of the time and captured some images of the gala.
I’ve always struggled to get shots that I like around Kidderminster and this trip was no exception. The photo above is a fairly typical shot of a train at the station and is, to be frank, quite boring.
There’s something about sunrises and sunsets that attracts the photographer. I frequently holiday on the Spanish east coast and have the opportunity to take photos of the sunrise whenever I manage to wake up early enough.
Taking a good sunrise-over-the-sea photograph is hard though. In particular, exposure can be difficult as the sun is bright and the shadows deep at sunrise. I personally tend to prefer to lose details in the shadow so that the sun looks better.
I took my new Fuji X-T3 out to photograph 45596 Bahamas as it came through Worcestershire on a tour. Due to timings, I was able to get a photo of it north of Worcester and then another south as it headed to Cheltenham.
As is common when I take photos, I made some mistakes and I want to look at a couple of them in this article.
