An Insight Into Photostitching

An Insight Into Photostitching

The first step in creating a photostitch is to take the photographs. For this photostitch (The River Cam in the Mist at Magic Hour), I wanted to create as large an image as possible, so set my camera to maximum zoom – this would lead to more photographs being required to cover the subject matter. I then fixed the camera’s shutter speed, aperture, focus, and white...

Misty Magic Hour

Misty Magic Hour

Seeing that it was still foggy at midday when I headed out for some Christmas Shopping, I took my camera with the intention of getting some photos of Cambridge in the mist. Sure enough, as I reached the peak of Garret Hostel Lane bridge, the following pictoresque sight awaited me; along with several other people taking photos. This first photo is my favourite – it’s a...

Psychosemitic, featuring DJ Filastine and Y-Love

Psychosemitic, featuring DJ Filastine and Y-Love

Another of Psychosemitic’s fine events, this time in the great venue 93 Feet East, on Brick Lane. Starting the evening was DJ Filastine, who mixed live sampled-drumming with standard DJing. Impressive skills. Next up were Y-Love, a hiphop threesome of Orthodox Jews from Brooklyn, whose infectious choons feature English, Hebrew and Aramaic lyrics. Check out MySpace.com/ylove...

Bright Frosty Morning

Bright Frosty Morning

On a bright and frosty December morning on my way to work, I was able to enjoy some prime time taking photos in the wintry wonderland of St. John’s College Backs. I’ve taken many photos of the St. John’s Backs in the snow, but this is the first time I was able to catch a slightly wintry view in bright sunshine, rather than overcast snow-clouds. Frosty...

Oi Va Voi @ Cambridge Junction

Oi Va Voi @ Cambridge Junction

Oi Va Voi returned to the Cambridge Junction, almost a year since their last gig, but this time touring with their latest, eponymous, album. Performing in the main stage this time, they brought out old crowd-pleasers “Yesterday’s Mistakes”, “Refugee” and “Od Yeshoma”. New favourite “Yuri” made an even bigger impact with the fans...

Again, they were supported by Gil Karpas, who improved upon last year’s great performance with some excellent guitar-playing to accompany his jazzy vocals.

Hanukkah Photoshoot

Hanukkah Photoshoot

I was commissioned to take a photograph to promote Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of lights, to be used in the Jewish Chaplaincy’s fund-raising campaign. The only catch was that the request came a month before the festival started, so I couldn’t take photographs of the actual celebrations. I gathered a few willing volunteers to light the candles for the camera, the...

Cambridge Fireworks on Midsummer Common

Cambridge Fireworks on Midsummer Common

Taken from the wonderful vantage point of the Jesus College Boat House – the reflections in the Cam and the stunning compositions make these some of the best firework photographs I’ve taken. Also very helpful was a friend’s tip about setting the camera to bulb mode, so that shutter speeds could be easily adapted as the fireworks...

KT Tunstall @ London's Roundhouse, Halloween 2007

After a hugely-successful tour of the USA, the multi-platinum-selling artist KT Tunstall is back touring the UK for her second album, Drastic Fantastic, and the highlight of her tour was always going to be playing one of London’s largest venues, and on Halloween. I last had the opportunity to photograph KT on her last UK tour in 2005, also on Halloween. Her die-hard fans also...

Acting Headshots for Hayley

Acting Headshots for Hayley

The second headshot photoshoot this weekend, with Hayley, yet another stunning drama student at Homerton, like Rebecca, Megan and Erica. At this rate, I may soon get to photograph every member of Homerton. The photos below may or may not show this, but at times she reminded me of Brigitte Bardot, Farah Fawcett, and Cat...
