London

A different view of London – 2 days in the capital and a chance to explore a variety of locations all with the G7 camera with the idea to capture to buildings, the moments, and the variety that was on offer, that could offer meaning to me. It was also a chance to visit a bucket list location – the Sky Garden (I would recommend) and some other interesting locations….

Changing of the Guard

We were lucky enough to see the changing of the guard in London – we did not know it was happening, so this highlight the importance of having a camera in your hand, rather than in your bag – means you can capture the moment and the memory! Continue reading

Loving my MagMods

I have been looking for a while for some MagMods to add to my camera flash units because I really like being able to control light on and off camera and I have come to realise these are pretty amazing accessories to own. I started my collection with a MagSphere and a Mag Grip – both purchased through Amazon Uk with Jack the Hat being the UK supplier. Continue reading

A few days away

I am looking at traveling light with my photography for some events coming up which means abandoning my canon, my lens, my flash and my heavy rucksack and traveling light with just the G7 in my pocket … so on a recent weekend away that is all I used.

I took 120 photos over the weekend – 25 I was happy with – and I discovered a lot, and I know I need to practice some more:

  • I like macro shots with it
  • It works well in low light (inside the church)
  • It has a really wide angle
  • I cant zoom in and get close enough to my subjects at time – and does not compress the landscape enough, but I can crop
  • I love the ability to shoot so much lower than normal
  • My focusing – with the auto screen is off… I am using al servo, but begining to think one shot might be better

There is certainly a different between this and my DSLR, but it is small, descrete, fits in my coat pocket and I think the more I use it and learn its limitations – like any lens offers, the more I will work out what shots it is suitable for.
