The Rotolight NEO

In my last video-log from the studio I was demonstrating how I did a ‘Photo-Noir’ selfie with one light and a reflector, and someone later asked why I’d referred to it as an ‘experiment’ when its a well known studio technique!

The Fujifilm X-T30

Ok – I’ve decided to become a trainee Vlogger.  Here’s my first effort.  If it’s successful I’m going to do some talks on image composition, gestalt theories in imaging etc, – stuff that will help beginner and novice photographers.  My plan is to post the videos on the Facebook group, Bob’s Photography Forum with links to this blog for images, text etc to accompany the lessons, and asking those who are in the group and who wish to participate, to post their images in the group.

We’ll see how it goes!  Here’s my test video…

Fo those who are unable to speak or comprehend Norn Iron, – here’s the (rough) English translation:-

Passport Changes – We’re READY!

HM Passport Agency is changing the way passport photographs are conveyed to them.  The old paper passport photograph will soon not be accepted, as the agency changes to digital, online applications.

In future, your passport photo will be sent to the Passport Agency with a unique code, that you must obtain from the studio where your passport photo was taken.
