June Projects

15th June 2015
Just a quick update for all my regular viewers on whats going on at the minute.

Hopefully you have noticed the new website changes that I have implemented. So far the feedback I have received has been positive especially from those viewing on tablets where the new scrolling format has been much appreciated. If you have anything else to add please feel free to contact me in the usual ways.

I had hoped to have written my blog on moth trapping and there use in wildlife photography by now. Unfortunately the British weather has other ideas, and as anyone in the Uk knows, we have had a lot of wet weather and really cold nights which seems to have dissuaded the moths from coming out of hiding! The weather has improved today so hopefully I can start this project soon.

I am now using the Tamron 150-600 as my go to long lens and so far I have been impressed with the image quality. The image above was shot in very poor light and rain. ISO was 1600 and the lens dealt with it pretty well. I will be interested to see what effect the camera has when I switch from the Canon 700D to The Canon 7D Mk II in the autumn. I will be writing a full review of this over the next couple of weeks. I will be heading up to Bempton Cliffs on the east coast fairly soon so this should give the lens a good test for birds in flight shots.

I have also switched my camera rucksack to a Lowe Pro Flipside 400. So far I am really happy with the features of this bag. The padding is excellent and its really comfortable on the back. I am missing a laptop pocket, although this never got used for a laptop but I found it really useful for my heavy duty camouflage ground sheet. A wildlife photography essential for keeping you off the floor, the rain off you and your kit or as a temporary hide. So, hopefully lots to come in the next few weeks. Images as always are continually added so please come back and comment!

I always love to hear from you so please keep in touch on facebook, twitter, email or the guestbook on this site. Its really nice to know theirs someone else out there!

Scott
