The Webpages of Michael and Margaret

I've long been an avid amateur photographer. My Dad used to develop his own black & white photos & take masses of photos & colour slides. I get it from him. In November 2003 I switched to digital photography and as can be seen below have worked my way through a number of cameras.

My very first digital photo!! Margaret getting tea ready for us. (Looks like beans play a role in this particular meal)

Skylon Tower, Niagara Falls

For this photo I zoomed the camera into the sun which created this different photo.

By using a tripod & adjusting the shutter speed to a slower setting you can get these interesting blurred photos.

Painting with Light

-Set camera on tripod
-Set shutter speed to 10 seconds
-Trip shutter
-'Paint' front of house with flashlight

Since the shutter on the camera is open for a length of time but the background stays stationary the camera picks up the flashlight.
