Using some of my architectural photography for a good cause Photographs of St. Mary de Castro church in Leicester
The nearby church of St Mary de Castro has a wonderful spire, dating from around 1400. It’s built on a tower dating from 1300, that’s built from inside a church (lack of space) that dates from [...]

More testing of our GigaPan Epic Pro

Chapter house steps at Wells Cathedral, England
I’m not producing a travel blog this year – however I am touring bits of the southwest of England and will no doubt get some interesting photos on the way (yes I do take holiday snaps)

Some photos in the fog
Yesterday morning I was invited to visit to the new ‘digital media centre’ that’s just opened in Leicester. Phoenix Square has a mix of cinema, work places, production facilities and a range of apartments.

Looking at high ISO photography with the Canon 7D
The EOS 7D ISO settings go up to 12800, although it should be noted that the 12800 or ‘H’ setting needs enabling in the custom settings.
I’ve looked at aspects of high ISO noise earlier and decided that 6400 ISO should be capable of some interesting [...]
