Happy New Year !

Here is a personal fave that I took a week or so ago. This is a four image merge into HDR which has ended up looking some ND filter due to the soft wave overlaps. I’ve submitted it into the Flickr ‘your best shot 2015’ pool and it’s proven to be very popular, so I hope you all like it also.

Back to college next week and I’ve just been sorting out my LV08 chassis assignment this evening. Hopefully I can get that marked off then it will be more workshop related tasks in the new year which I can share on the blog.

2015 for the college blog has been pretty steady, nearly 200 genuine followers and regular commenters must mean I’m doing something right. It’s clear the site has moved over into more of a photo hobbyist gallery, but since college will finish around June 2016 I will probably carry this on as a photography blog primarily.

I would like to note a few of my favorite blogs this year:

Jazz You Tooย  This has been a great source for alternative listening and generally chilled out tracks.

Ray Laskowitz The Storyteller, a great variety of photos from Ray, many thanks.

Drakes Doodles This site is really interesting, simple doodles of art it’s really worth following !

Playing With My First DSLR Camera Well known blog for macro and close up photography, great for ideas yet I just need to get a better close up lens now !

Colline’s Blog I’ve really enjoyed this blog about the perspectives of teaching, with it’s challenges and rewards it’s been great to follow this year.

Tim Scribbles A car show blog from the US that I enjoy very much.

THE MAD MOVIE RANTER Useful site for knowing what films to check out and the ones to avoid. It’s really that simple !

Forgotten NZ Abandoned places in New Zealand and around the world, I’ve been following this site since I started my own blog and it’s really cool.

Marc Aerophoto Marc will always be joking to me about something on my blog, but you just cannot beat taking photos from the sky ! Marc has been helpful with what to get for my camera so a special thanks to him !

There are many more blogs I can think to include but I need to carry on with my assignment, and why are people doing fireworks already it’s only 21:00PM !

Kenny.

  6. Thanks for the shout out. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m going to share a not-so-secret secret. I don’t own a macro lens. :O I’ve had my camera for over a year and I STILL use only the kit lens (EF-S 18-135 IS STM). I stand back, and zoom in. It works pretty well for me.

    • Hi Amy, yes it sure was a secret until I found out on Flickr since it displays the camera model and lens. Some people don’t share this info but luckily you do. Soon as I saw the EF-S18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM I’ve really wanted one but they are not cheap. It’s currently out of that or a Tamron 28-300 at the moment although I have not tried an image stabilizer lens yet ! Take care and happy 2016 ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Photograpy sure is an expensive hobby, isn’t it? The cost is what’s holding me back from getting a macro lens. Happy 2016 to you too!

      • I agree top top end fixed macro lenses are crazy, but even an 18-125 would be a good step up for me so I have more flexibility out and about with my camera ๐Ÿ™‚
