I won the Calumet photo of the week for the 2nd time.

I’ve won the Calumet photo of the week for the 8th of November 2011.
With a lovely wedding picture I took on a cold day in Glasgow, dodging the traffic!
Shot in colour but makes a much nicer black & white.
Calumet are a leading supplier for the photographic industry, and hold a regular competition for their “photo of the week” featuring some exceptionally high quality photos from international photographers.


IPhone 4s review

As luck would have it, my upgrade (from the 3gs) was due same day as the new IPhone 4s was released!
So got my order in picked it up on Friday.
First impressions, its great……now for the tech stuff.
Loads pages very quickly on wifi noticeably quicker than on the 3gs.
The screen resolution is fantastic images taken or one’s you already have look sharper and more vibrant.
The camera its-self a new eight megapixel camera and 1080p high definition video capture is just perfect, when opened up in photoshop it gives a 22.9m image. I love the fact that when you compose a shot you can then touch the screen where you want it to expose……genius!
Here a few pix from today, just as they were shot on the iphone 4s, no adjustments.

The phone reception seams better, getting at least one more bar around my house.
The new feature of the iPhone 4s is Siri, a virtual personal assistant based on voice recognition technology.
Not sure about this didn’t seam to get my accent!

Holyrood Palace

A happy new year to all, and all the best for 2011.
The weather we have been having has resulted in a few cancelled jobs at the end of 2010.
But this has also resulted in a few more jobs feature on the Edinburgh gritters and one particular commission, a phone call from Buckingham Palace (The Royal Collection) can you photograph Holyrood Palace for us please, we are looking for some images with virgin snow.
No problem, so next snow fall and up very early to get there before any one had a chance to walk on the snow, as the Place is open to the public.
Which turned out to very rewarding and with a great set of images for the Royal Collection.
