153/366 Changes

It was a misty morning, but the mist wasn’t at sea level. It was though, sufficiently low as to obscure most of the Spinnaker.

The picture above was taken with an iPhone, with a 12 megapixel camera. Not the biggest sensor by any means, but more than big enough to produce a picture with a quality to make it as big as I’m ever likely to need (famous last words)? To me the quality of the picture is excellent. I am sure that there will be people who disagree. What I am trying to say here is that I am very satisfied with the tools that I have to hand for my photography.

Do you have a digital camera (including your phone)? I will be amazed if you don’t. When did you get your first one? Was it the ease of digital photography that brought you in to taking pictures? I bought my first camera (my, not my family’s) it was a basic point and shoot, but it served a purpose for a while. My first “proper” camera i.e, a Single Lens Reflex, on which I could use different lenses – if I could afford them. It took me a few years to move to the Canon AE-1. Possibly what I would call a semi-pro amateur camera. My time in Berlin gave me access to the East German Praktica BX20 and the range of lenses. I had a bit of fun with them, including doing my own black and white processing. I must admit, I never really enjoyed that side of it.

I went for several years without a camera. Acquiring my first digital camera probably around 2003/4. I’ve never been without a camera since then. Even more so today with my phone rarely leaving my side. I think that first camera might have been a 256k, What a world of difference between then and now. Going digital has been the best thing ever in the hobby, in my opinion – and I accept there will be people who disagree. I do remember the thrill of loading a film, being limited to 36 exposures, costing £’s to get processed and then waiting for the pictures to come back, and groaning when they hadn’t turned out like I’d hoped.

Would I go back to film? Nah! I don’t think so.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
