My future grandson is not even born but already has his first camera. This wooden beauty was bought by his mum and is hopefully tough enough to stand the rigours of teething etc. I can’t wait until he’s older and I can introduce him to the joy of film. It will be coming full circle for me. My father got me in to photography in the first place and although he has since passed away, it’s his birthday today. I think of him every time I pick up a camera and it would be nice to give junior that same feeling. Until then, this is a lovely start.
The Parallax Effect is phenomena that can spoil your photographs, but what is it exactly and can it be overcome? In my latest short video I hope to answer these questions. It does not affect Single Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras as we are looking through the taking lens. But with point and shoot and other types of camera, we don’t always see what the camera sees. If our point of focus is relatively close, this can mean a missed opportunity. Luckily most manufacturers have our back.
This week my YoutTube channel reached over 300 subscribers and over 50,000 views which is absolutely mind-blowing to me. A huge thank you to all of you.
A comment on a recent video of mine asked how to load 35mm film in to a camera. Without sounding conceited, I had never considered it, as I have been doing it for so long. However I am trying to help the beginner and so here is a video that explains it. I can’t cover all types of camera obviously. So I have chosen two very different ones and have tried to explain differences that you might come across.
I hope it’s of use as I might start on a series of basic “how-to” videos. Here is the link to the site for the manuals that I talk about.
