Gardens, Lakes and a Mansion. A Recipe for a Nice Day Out

Within the last couple of years, I watched ‘The Da Vinci Code‘ which I loved, a great plot, lots of excitement and varied music. Although the film is not entirely accurate, it still inspired me …

Not so complicated photography

Since when has photography got so complicated? These days, whenever I open a photography magazine or visit some random photography blog or website, I get bombarded with all those photography words that unless you are experienced, would be a little ‘over the top’, such as: Aperture Shutter speed ISO Lighting Depth of field (DOF) Crop factors Rule of thirds Lightroom and many many more Have the …
