|'The Station' Scanned Print. Canon FTb|
He didn't acknowledge her instead he continued to read whatever headline on the front page of the newspaper had caught his attention. I know I rushed this shot because I felt he would move away any second, I'm not entirely happy with the composition but it's a lesson for next time.
Lately when out and about I have chosen to limit my photographic equipment to try and inspire a little inventive creativity. I'll be honest I'm not sure if it is working, I am certainly learning the limits and capabilities of my chosen equipment but am I getting better shots? I can't say yet as it is too soon.
I currently chose what format I wish to shoot in for the day, medium, 35mm or digital? after I have made my decision I will bring one lens only. If I decide to shoot with film I will also decide on colour or black and white film normally the weather will be the deciding factor in that decision. I doubt very much that I will continue with this process of working as it is a little too restricting, at the very least a second lens.
Personally I favour fixed lenses over zoom lenses, this is because I love being forced to move around to try and find or in some cases accidentally discovering a better composition. Of course there are times when I use zoom lenses especially for events such as Sports, weddings and charity nights as well as when I want to capture wildlife where distance is an advantage and allows one to capture images of wildlife that would normally be spooked by a humans presence.
Next post will be about the new project that I am currently working on.

|Untitled' Scanned Print Canon FTb|
I'm currently studying Edouard Boubat's work while working on two of my own series of images that I hope to have finished sometime in the spring. The weather this past few weeks has really hindered the shots that I had planned, so I am having to take things a little slower and be somewhat inventive with certain shots.
I'm currently reading 'Sive' by John B Keane a fantastic writer well worth a look if you get a chance.
The new series of 'The Killing' on BBC Four has been ace! I can't believe it is the last series as well. Sofie Gråbøl who plays the lead detective Sarah Lund is a fantastic actress and I can't wait to see what she has lined up next.
That's it for now
