So I decided to make a separate post about this chapel.  I thought the place was beautiful and I got some great pictures. The Italian Chapel is a Roman Catholic chapel on Lamb Holm in Orkney, Scotland.  It was built from limited materials by Italian prisoners of war during World War II.  You can read more about the chapel HERE.

Tips for “newbie” photographers like me!

Ok, so if you have been following my blog or even just browsed through it today you can probably notice fairly quickly that I am “newbie” photographer.  I got my first DSLR camera (a Nikon D3000) as a gift from my partner on Christmas and I started my Project 365 1 week later.  Prior to […]

NIKON D3000 1/10s Focal Length: 55.0mm f/5.6 ISO: 400 78/365. Yay, Its Friday! AND… Yay, Its Spring!!! Just another day at work and then I went to the park beside my house to shoot the spring flowers that have been popping up.  The lighting was perfect the only thing annoying me was the slight breeze. […]

NIKON D3000 1/2s Focal Length: 45.0mm f/36.0 ISO: 400 68/365. I went for a short walk after work and took some pics but when I got home and loaded my memory card none of them had saved.  Grrrrr… Then when Stew lit some candles I took the opportunity to try something new.  Photographing fire is a lot […]

Day Fifty Six

NIKON D3000 1/6s Focal Length: 28.0mm f/5.0 ISO: 400

NIKON D3000 1/6s Focal Length: 28.0mm f/5.0 ISO: 400 56/365. A horrible rainy day. Took this shot around the corner from my house, it was taken in complete manual mode and it took me so long to figure it out that the light was nearly gone from the day.  So it’s kinda noisy from the […]

NIKON D3000 1/60s Focal Length: f/25.0 ISO: 100 54/365. My friend gave me Photoshop Elements 8 to try and I started reading Sophie Kinsella’s new book Twenties Girl.  I finished The Lost Symbol and will post a review when I am not so tired.  I have not managed to catch up on my sleep since […]

NIKON D3000 1/40s Focal Length: 35.0mm f5.0 ISO: 400 51/365. After I finished my 4 hour shift Stew and I went for a walk at Pollok Park.  I wanted to photograph the hairy coos (Highland Cows) but by the time we got to them the daylight was no longer right for the exposure I wanted. […]

Day Forty Eight

NIKON D3000 1/60s Focal Length: 36.0mm f/8.0 ISO: 400 48/365. Just another “Hump day”, although I agreed to work 4 hours on Sat so its really not the middle of the week yet for me.  I get time and a half for it and will be taking time owed so 6 hours off in March […]

NIKON D3000 1/125s Focal Legth: 44.0mm f/6.3 ISO: 100 46/365. Well I went for a walk today while I was still up at Stewart’s parents.  I have been wanting to photograph these horses for some time so I took advantage of the opportunity.   They are on Stewart’s parents property as they rent the fields out to the […]
