One of the things I enjoy about putting my presentation slides for talks and workshops together is using my growing library of photos. I’ve pretty much stopped using other stock photos for my talks (well, 99% stopped). This afternoon I came across this great little set of photos I took at one of my few […]
I took our kids off to the park yesterday afternoon and spent the time experimenting with my kit lenses some more. In good light, they actually work really well for me. I love the colour and contrast I get with the lenses, particularly my 18-55mm lens. I am really enjoying the wide angle stuff at […]
