Know more about noise

You all know that one of the things you need to deal with when shooting photos, is noise, writes Jon Adams & Andrew James. The term noise is a strange one really since you can’t hear a photograph –  so why is this the phrase used to describe something that looks like speckling and can soften the overall clarity of your image?

Swimming with a camera … Deliberately!

The Plan. The day didn’t start with a swim as part of the plan, however when an update arrived from the Wild Seas Centre (my ‘seaside office) advising of amazing condition, calm and clear, it slipped in as a good way to wind up a scorching day. Batteries charged, camera housing prepared, camera controls reprised and initial setting input. Tucked into a bag along with a range of snorkelling kit it was off to Kimmeridge in the calm before the rush hour. The Kit. The kit used was fairly minimalist,...Read More
