Spent a wonderful few days in Paris earlier this month where we went to the Cathedral of Notre Dame and up the Eiffel Tower. The bottom picture of the tower is through my fish eye lens which is great for capturing tall structures. The inside of Notre Dame is beautiful and so peaceful - hopefully an atmosphere which is reflected in the other two pictures.

I recently got a set of filters for my birthday and this is the first time I've tried them out. This picture turned out the best using an ultra violet filter at Cramond gives the pitcure a vintage feel whilst keeping the colour of the sea and the grass. Can't wait to try them out again soon!
It was a windy day even in the rocks so I had to time it right and have a very steady hand due to not havng my tripod with me and I think it turned out really well - lots of different shades but only two colours.
Another experiment with perpectives and adding depth to a picture by changing the position and angle at which it gets taken.

Today I have mostly been taking picture of the beautiful Cherry blossoms in the sunshine in the gardens on Princes Street. I was desperate to catch a sunny day before all the blossoms disappeared and caught a break today. My favourite picture that I've taken recently is the top one with the railings and the passerby.

I recently bough t a speedlight for the top of my camera and theresults are fantastic! I'm hoping to do some product photography soon and these are just some of the pratice shots using the seepdlight - hopefully they'll get a bit better but I'm liking the initial results and enjoying practicing.
Yesterday I was out and about playing with a new fish-eye lense - the light wasn't great so I didn't get much of great quality but I like this one of the Castle and fountain in Princes Street Gardens. I like the 3D effect of a fish eye lense and look forward to playing with it on a sunny day!!
