Journal Entry: Tue Sep 9, 2014, 4:27 AM

I thought I’d throw in a regular little journal because I don’t have enough time to write a photography lesson before I go on a hiking trip…tomorrow. WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU HAVEN’T READ THE LESSONS!?…..I’ve been writing these fucking awesome photography lessons…no REALLY…I have. They are written especially for those of you who aren’t very good at photography. So…that’s basically most of you then.

Check them out here:


Lesson 1 – Basics of Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO

Photography Lesson Number 1I responded to a cry for help by a group looking for contributors for articles on photography and shit but soon realised they bored the tits off me before I even started. SOOOO....I've decided to write my own photography lessons every now & then and post them in my journal. It is, of course, written in my very own inimitable style.....
“Everyone has to start somewhere”.

“There’s always a beginning, middle and end”.
There are lots of clichés about starting something new but I think my favourite is this –
“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the expert’s mind there are few”.
I think it sums it up the best what it’s like when starting in digital photography. Believe me when I tell you that really…it is a piece of piss. Simples. Easy-peasy. Let me put your mind at ease and point out that thes


Lesson 2 – Photographing the stars

Photography Lesson Number 2The general consensus from the first lesson was the following -
a) my photography lessons are fucking awesome, and
b) the next one should be about star photography
So, here it is....
Star light, star bright,
The first star I……don’t see tonight because I left the fucking lens cap on.
People love those twinkly little dead planets in the sky, don’t they? You’re one of those people, aren’t you? You want to know how to take photos of them to show all your friends, don’t you? Except they don’t want to see your photos because they are shite. Let me tell you how to keep your friends…
First things first. Look up. Can you see stars? No? Then go someplace else.
People with normal IQ’s don’t need to hear this but….you have to be able to see them to photograph them so urban areas are balls because of the shitty orange glow light pollution from the street lamps. So go join up with the rednecks i


Lesson 3 – Landscape Photography

Photography Lesson Number 3LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY
Ever been at one of those parties you didn’t want to go to because you knew it was going to be full of people who think they are (or in your case actually are) better than you? YES OF COURSE YOU HAVE. The sort of party where you’ll ask that person standing next to the hummus “what do you do for a living?” and they reply smugly “I’m a landscape photographer”. Well read this page and be a fucking landscape photographer too. It’s like landscape gardening for those with weak knees.
First things first. What is the most important thing about landscape photography? Have something fucking cool to look at of course. It is NOT landscape photography if you go and take a photo of your back yard. People want to see rivers, trees, mountains. They want to see rolling hills, reflective lakes and dramatic skies. SO GO SOMEWHERE THAT LOOKS NICE. It really is

I’ve been conducting a poll to decide what the next one should be about. So far in the lead is Animal Photography, followed by Close up/macro photography. If you want to change the outcome then vote in the poll below this journal. Or click this… THAT’S AN ORDER SOLDIER! :salute:

Other than that I’ve pretty much been posting photographs of castles and birds. Yep….castles and birds. No more. No less. Here are the most popular ones….
