Photos of Bath, Somerset

Photos of Bath, Somerset

Here are a few pictures taken today in Bath, Somerset. Most of the original photos were of friends and not architectural or floral, hence only a tiny gallery today.

Bath is such a lovely place and contains some stunning buildings, I’ll definitely be returning to capture a bit of the history on film.

Spring time in Lydiard Park

Spring time in Lydiard Park

With the 6 month UK winter finally looking like its on its way out, I managed to spend a bit of this evening wondering around Lydiard park as the warm sun was setting.

Taking my new camera for a spin and seeing what I could snap, I did the same exercise a few months ago, same place, just a lot colder.

I was shooting on AV mostly, with a Canon 55-250mm IS lens on my Canon 550D.

Lots to learn regarding capturing the naturally light settings, but hopefully will continue to pick up some pointers.

Any advice, please drop me a comment below.

Hope you liked them

Photography of Chateaux and Vineyards in France

Today as I played with my new Canon 550D, I stumbled across some photos from a holiday in France back in 2011.

Mostly photos of architecture, all shot on my old Canon PowerShot A495.

Sadly I didn’t realise when I was taking them, that the datestamp was being added to every photo. What an annoying feature! So I had to go through all these photos and remove the dates in Photoshop… what a pain.

Here are some of the best I think.

I’ve just uploaded a little comparison to show some of these photos before and after post-processing.

As always, any feedback to help me take better photos would be hugely appreciated.

Thanks for reading… well, looking. Whatever, thanks!

Some photos from the start of 2013 as Swindon is draped in sheets of snow.

All taken on my Galaxy S2 phone, so none with my DSLR.
