Hi All

This is my first blog and I have no idea what to do so excuse the brevity and typos!

I am ready to discuss everything photography related here. Please comment on the images (good or bad), or just post an opinion , or give me an assignment or task and I'll do my best to deliver!!!!

Just for starters, most people think photography is about the photographer and the gear. Not so!

Photography is about the subject. The photographer is just the guy that finds or creates the subject and snaps that moment in time. The gear is almost irrelevant because you just need something to capture the image in the right way.

Take a look at this image. This was a wedding and this was taken on my mobile phone. The gear is irrelevant, and the photographer (apart from arranging the dress) is irrelevant. The beauty of the shot is in the subject. Not to diminish the role of the photographer in the selection, pose, and moment of capture, but if this was a pigs rear-end it would not scrub up quite as well!

What say you?

Take a look at my website:
