Beautiful Bank Holiday weather - sheets of rain and 16 degrees.

Theatre Work

Image
The silhouettes are PS brushes produced by erichilemex at DeviantArt. The masks come from a couple of photographs I took at The Guilsfield Show and then mucked about with. It was to be a piece for a psychotherapist who works with British theatres, amongst other clients, but it wasn't right in the end; however, I didn't want it languishing unseen on a hard drive as I quite like it.

The 1:1 in-camera ratio was used and a couple of them have been cropped a tad afterwards. No colour correction applied in Photoshop.
So, I've had the camera a couple of weeks and what do I think? Well, first off, the rationale for buying this was to have a small, carry everywhere camera that replaced my X100 from Fuji. Why a replacement? Because try as I might, I couldn't overlook the focus problems of the Fuji. Yes, it has updated firmware and yes, I know all about the need for a high-contrast area on which to focus etc, but it was still just too darn frustrating to use and there even remained situations, mostly in low light, when it simply couldn't focus; in such situations you might think that manual focus would be the way to go but anyone who owns an X100 will soon put you right on that. In additi…

Printer Advice Needed

Does anyone know of a reliable colour printer? I've had a Canon and a Kodak in the last couple of years and they have both been awful - any advice or help gratefully received.
