So my fellow Welshoter’s I’ve just had a very informative hour and a half with Boss Tog (aka Eifion) all about lenses. I have had an Olympus EM-5 micro four thirds camera with a 45mm prime lens and a 14-150mm zoom for about six year and wasn’t really getting to grips with it until I […]
Have you ever had a photography problem but couldn’t find anyone to help, or perhaps you’d like to get off program mode and switch your camera to manual for that extra level of creativity? Perhaps you’d like someone to critique your photos or someone to talk to about photography? Search the internet and you’ll find […]
Early May and I’m off to Chester to meet Eifion for my one to one on the alien (to me at least) subject of “Learning Basic Studio Lighting”. Having focused (pun fully intended) mainly on landscapes due to an innate fear and lack of knowledge about all things flash, this event was going to be […]
Tonight, at the Roving Academy Evening it is all about seascapes mixed with landscape, low-light, long exposure and even a bit of creative and macro photography. Guaranteed to blow the cobwebs away, Llandudno, from the pier to the Great Orme, this location will provide the perfect atmosphere for a night along a beautiful part of the North Wales coastline making for a great night of photography. For those who would like, we will even throw in a bit of a challenge too, just to get the photographic creative juices flowing. If weather and conditions permit, we might even get a chance to do some painting with light too.
Long- Exposure Photography – it is a fantastic genre, or is it a technique and skill – whatever it is, we are going to help you when Welshot goes to Penmon on Anglesey. This will be a great event to help you to master this technique, skill and genre of photography that will have you capturing some great images. Think milky water/waves and you’ve got yourself a dynamic photograph that you’ve captured in your camera yourself. Because of the time of the year – we may even be able to do some low-light long exposures as well.
The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time. ~ Mary Oliver For the past 24 days I’ve been going to bed with a smile on my […]

Do you love photography? You’re here reading this blog so I am betting you do. I am also betting that it’s a bit of an all consuming passion – almost obsessive and takes up a lot of your time, energy and thoughts as well as any spare pennies that you might have. I am also […]
