F-Stops in Buckinghamshire

Posted by Richard on Sun 26 April 2009

Went out with the F-Stops today. Really nice walk we started at the Windmill at Quainton and walked over to a great pub in Oving The Black Boy. After lunch we headed up to the highest hill and found a stunning view.

I kept the Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom on for the 1st part of the walk

After the pub went back to my “normal” walkabout Nikon 18-200 lens

Got some great photos thanks to Keith & Helen for organising the walk and the weather 🙂

Few more pictures here

Alternative Fashion Show

Posted by Richard on Fri 24 April 2009

I went up to London for the annual AlternativeArts fashion show last week.  Seemed a bit busier then last time I went suspect that may have been down to the warmer weather.  By contrast the “press” pit was less busy and I didn’t feel quite out of place as I before lots of obviously amateur photographers.

ISTS at Donington Park

Posted by Richard on Wed 15 April 2009

Went to the International styling and Tuning Show on Saturday. Spent the 1st hour helping to put up Jackie Degg’s gazebo with the rest of the photographers.






Didn’t get any pictures of her Doh!





Wandered off to take some of the drifting but couldn’t get a good angle thru the fence and all the guys in the high vis vests in the background didn’t help


So back to something more interesting. This is Mel and Elise

The Ignition stand was well hidden and I didn’t find it till late in the afternoon.
Extra special thanks to Kitty for posing for me I’ll send you some pictures tonight
