I've been dabbling with astrophotography for several years now, just casually trying to improve. I'm by no means an expert but I think I have enough experience now to do a beginner's guide. So here it is! A beginner’s guide to astrophotography.Read More
Cheap camera gear, good photos?
Is it possible?
Course it is. Here are 10 awesome camera / lens combos under £500 that I’ve personally used over the years. I’ll even pop some other suggestions at the end of the blog.
(and yes I know £500 is still a lot of money, but in the grand scheme of photography you can certainly spend a whole lot more!)

Micro Four Thirds isn’t for everyone. Have a read to see if it’s for you. There are many pros and cons to the m43 system, and for me, the benefits far outweigh the negatives (and there are negatives!) but it all depends on you, and what you want to achieve. So let’s get stuck in.Read More
The FalconEyes RX-18TD might be a pain in the butt to say, but it sure is an impressive light.
I’ve taken the FalconEyes light on two commercial jobs now, so I thought it’s time I gave it a proper, real-world, real life review. With real results. Because that’s what we’re all about on this site!Read More
Sharp are bringing out an 8k camera with a micro four thirds sensor?!
Well this has come out of nowhere! After so much speculation on whether a micro four thirds sensor even could produce 8k video, here we have a prototype camera — from a new manufacturer! — that can?
What a time to be a Micro Four Nerd.Read More
I think 2018 has been a great year for my photography outside of my commissioned work. I’ve evolved my colour grading quite a bit, and I think — even through sheer practice and time spent on photography — my skills have improved quite a bit.
That’s one of the reasons why I love photography so much: There’s always room to improve. There’s always a new skill to learn, a new technique to try, a new project to take on.
Isn’t that all a bit cool?
I’ve decided to keep this list to my “passion project” photography — as in, not any commissioned wedding or portrait work. I may make a seprate list for that.
Anyway, without further any more waffling, here are my top 10 images of 2018.Read More
Pentax 110 lenses can very easily be adapted to micro four thirds cameras. The 110 “sensor” size is m43 sized so you don’t even need a fancy or expensive adapter to do it.
Are these lenses ridiculously small? Yes.
Are they capable? I think so.
And either way, it’s a ton of fun. Let’s check out the results!Read More
If you’ve been around here a while, you’ll know it’s no secret how much I love my Zhiyun Crane Plus.
I’ve had a whole host of gimbals in the past, from the Crane 2 to the tiny Crane M, and for my setup the Crane Plus is absolutely my “Goldilocks Gimbal”.
So the Zhiyun Weebill Lab has some big boots to fill.
How does it compare?Read More
The best micro four thirds lenses
(in my opinion!)
I have a lot of lenses. Like… a LOT. Probably way too many lenses. But LOOK HOW CUTE THEY ARE! This is a family photo I can get on board with.Read More
The Instamic is such a nerdy device. I think it’ll attract two sorts of people:
“What the heck is that and WHY?”
“THAT IS SO COOL *grabby hands*”
… I think you might be able to guess which category I fall into.Read More
I’ve used Luminar for about 6 months now, and I have to say, I’m very impressed. You get so much bang for your buck with a one off payment. No more monthly subscriptions! Wooo! It has gotten faster and more efficient with every update, and I can say with confidence it now runs like an absolute dream on my machine. Everything about this software is designed to be user friendly and FAST.
I’ve done some video tutorials over on my channel, but I’ll go through some of my favourite features for you now if you’re still on the fence.Read More
