Photography: Challenge Yourself

I recently went on a small day trip to Haworth in Yorkshire. Its an amazing picturesque location with some amazing buildings and history, it was home to the Bronte family who changed the day to day life of the people how lived there and produced some very well know and highly regarded books.

The village is full of character and charm and is the perfect place to photograph... if the weather is good sadly on the day i was there it was raining all day so had to resort to Plan B.

For anyone who does not know I use a Canon 60D DSLR, some say it is outdated but i like the camera as it has produced some amazing pictures and traveled everywhere with me, not to mention I like the form factor, the options and the overall work flow of the camera. My only issue is it is not the best camera when it is raining which it seems do more often than not in the UK. (you have to love the British weather...)

So I was in an amazing location with great buildings (which I love to photograph check out my Instagram linked at the bottom of this post) and rich history worth photographing and I could not even get the camera out the camera bag... So not to feel defeated i used my phone to capture the area instead. Now my phone is not the most up to date handset (Moto G 2nd gen) but is still performs well and I managed to get the following photos.

I was happy I was able to get something to show from the trip and after exploring the village I have planned to go back at some point in the future to get some more photos, If you want to see more of my photography check out my Instagram

The one lesson I hope to pass on in this blog post is that it does not matter if you have the biggest or best equipment as you can still produce something that looks good and in these sorts of situations and you learn to adapt to the situation and go with the flow.

Amazon Prime Day July 11th 2017

Amazon is launching its ever popular Prime Day again this year on the 11th July 2017. This event was amazing last year and I managed to get some good deals on some great products. This year is set to have hundreds of thousands of deals exclusively for prime members around the world and the flash deals that will be added every 5 minutes will allow members to get great discounts on lots of products.

If you are not an amazon prime member already you can use any of the amazon links on this page to start accessing prime membership for only £79.00 a year. Not only does prime membership give you access to free next day delivery on millions of eligible of items, it also gives you access to Prime Video allowing you to stream thousands of movies and TV shows. Membership also gives you access to Prime Music were you can stream over 2 million songs ad-free, you also get access to Prime Reading allowing you unlimited access to thousand of books, magazines, comics and more. 

You can access other services like Twitch Prime, Prime Photos Storage and get access to deals 30 minutes before non prime members. 

I have been a prime member for many years now and love the services the prime membership offers. I would recommend trying the 30 day trial if you are not sure but not many people I know have disliked the perks of membership.
