Fire in the Hole! – Grand Teton’s Snake River & Mormon Row

Jackson Hole, Wyoming – one of my favourite towns in the world. I say “town”, rather than “city”, as while it has the population and designation of the latter, this amazing little place still manages to exude that feeling of a classic American wild-west town from years gone by. Nestled to the south of Grand Teton National Park and its mountain range which spans for miles to the north towards Yellowstone, the views here are […]

Light Pollution, Astroklar & Natural Night Filter Review – Do They Really Work?

Light pollution: Increasingly a challenge for city dwellers and photographers alike. Those deep, dark skies that I’m lucky enough to see full of stars out in the countryside are becoming an endangered species in their own right as the world’s population continues to rise and urban areas inevitably expand. The problem is, with all that light bouncing around, our view of the night sky (and ability to capture it) continues to diminish on a daily […]

When you’ve been testing a new series of filters for a while, it’s easy to forget that one day they’ll actually become real-life products – that is, until the final versions arrive in their shiny new packaging at your door. Say hello to the brand new “Mark II” Rollei square photographic filters, and finally I can talk about some of the amazing features on these German-engineered sheets of glass.

Don’t Buy Cheap Filters! – Note to self…

The above is what’s left of a potentially disastrous mistake I made with an old camera, and trying to be “clever”. Note to self : Don’t try to be clever in future. You can buy some amazing things in Shanghai – and many of them are indeed a good deal. Take, for example, the “Lencarta Safari Li-Ion Flash System”. For sale in the UK for around ยฃ1,000 all-in (and I have one) – but if […]

Shanghai World Financial Center – The SWFC Bottle Opener

It’s been 7 months since I moved to Shanghai – and I’ve only just made it to the top of the world’s (current) highest observation deck, The Shanghai World Financial Center/SWFC (or as it’s locally known, “The Bottle Opener”) to see the skyline from above. A few miles from Shanghai Pudong International Airport, I really have no excuse, but now I’ve been up there – wow, what a view ๐Ÿ™‚ “View From The Top” – […]

Neutral Density and ND-Grad Filters – what’s the use?

Quick question: What do the following images have in common? The simple answer? They’d be impossible shots to take without some form of filter – and in this particular case, a filter which many people misunderstand or simply don’t think they need. That is, until they understand the power that it can have when shooting landscapes. It’s also one of the most frequently asked questions of land/seascape photographers – “how did you manage to do […]
