My Bio
I grew up in Devon in the middle of the countryside but now live just on the edge of Gloucester, between the canal and the river.

I am an automation engineer by day, so I spend my time taking laptops around factories to program PLCs and poking in control panels with a screwdriver. Actually I am office based a fair chunk of the time, but commissioning a project feels like it takes forever sometimes.

Camera:


Sony ILCE-7M3

Zoom Lenses:


Sony SEL2870 - 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS
Sony SEL70300G - 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G OSS
Sony SEL100400GM - 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS
and Sony SEL20TC 2x Teleconverter for the above


Wide Angle:


Samyang F2.8/14MM
Samyang 24mm F3.5 Tilt-Shift
Samyang AF 35mm F2. 8

Macro:


Camdiox 60mm, F/2.8, 2:1
Sony SEL50M28 - 50mm, F/2.8, 1:1
Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X Ultra Macro

Software:


Capture One Sony Express 11.2
Corel Aftershot Pro 3
Corel PaintShop Pro 2018
Photomaticx Pro 6.0

Thank you for any and all :+fav:, I really appreciate them.
I'm sorry but I can not thank everyone personally, I will always do my best to answer comments though, especially if they are questions or constructive feedback.

Goodbye

Goodbye

I'm sorry to have to say this but I'm no longer going to be uploading new photos to DeviantArt. Eclipse has become the primary way to view the site, and as far as I can tell is now the only way for non members. The new layout is an absolute abomination from the ridiculously large profile header to the ugly rescaled images. I'll still be taking photos and they will be able to be found on Instagram. Feel free to share your own accounts in the replies here, I'll check back periodically, or follow me on Instagram and I'll probably follow back.

Macro

Macro

The other day I came across a video on YouTube that offered some tips on macro photography. I tried them out at the weekend and thought there was a marked improvement on my previous attempts which have been variable at best. The video can be found here. The most recent macro shots I've uploaded were taken using the technique recommended. Compare it to the ones from a month or so back, unfortunately though they were taken with the same lens they are cropped differently, but if you download you'll easily see the difference.

Thanks to all my new Watchers.

Thanks to all my new Watchers.

Again it is time to thank all my new and continuing watchers for their support. Please take a look at their galleries. ~Immediate-C (https://www.deviantart.com/immediate-c):icondiscworldgod::iconredswan21x::iconrdhyman::iconcalsixty::icondesolv::iconwgblomberg: :iconnathie-nat::iconrajtantajtansyren::iconcipriandesign::iconarmstrongy85::iconseto-james::iconhossear: :icondefajoey::icondanny707::iconsparkypip::iconwolflover7948::iconxbuys::icontarquinius-superbus::icongaston3-italia: :iconsaraeustace91::iconsingingbun::iconcobblytacks::icondulindwen::iconlugia20711: Or if not, at least give these a look:
