To keep my hand in I’ve been running a few test setups on my Nikon D810. I’ve discovered how little I know about this camera and had to refer to the manual and watch a couple of YouTube videos. No surprise I suppose if you only use your camera for one subject with the same boring lighting setup.
The older you get the quicker the years pass. 2017 was a typical Big Ears year, that’s right nothing exciting happened. A lack of cash and suitable talent within striking distance of Rugby meant I managed far fewer shoots than previous years. By suitable I mean free of large tattoos. The unmarked models are now such a sought after commodity they can bump their rates up, I don’t blame them, and the good ones are booked months in advance. Highlight of my year was, don’t laugh, standing virtually alone on Skegness beach. Sadly it was more exhilarating than any of my shoots. C’est la vie. Oh, and Happy New Year everyone.
