It has been a long, cold and harsh winter but now the blossom is emerging and the insects and flowers are starting to return. It always takes a little while to get back up and running after winter so I headed out to wake myself up with my new EM1ii and 60mm Macro lens to see what was buzzing.
I haven't posted in a long time (my apologies) and I have never really done a proper kit post so I thought that this was as good a time as any to let you know what I use as well as why I picked it and why it deserves to be in my bag. My kit tends to focus on getting as much value as possible without compromising on quality and as such it contains a few brands that are a little less common but no less effective. As well as this, I'm going to explain how I get to locations (spoiler - I can't drive!) and how this affects my photography.
In my previous post, I wrote about the macroscopic work that I do. Whilst this is without doubt one of my favourite types of photography and, 9 times out of 10, you'll find me with a macro-capable lens attached to the front of my camera, it is also not the only type of photography that I both do and enjoy. As such, this post will take a sample of some of the landscape photography that I have done.
A new addition has been made to my family of lenses! And this is an entirely new focal length for me and requires a completely new way for me to shoot - read on for my take on the new SLR Magic 8mm F4 lens for Micro Four Thirds including sample shots, what I thought of it and why I got it in the first place!
I've always been very keen on macroscopic photography, taking photos of insects, textures and anything else that would normally be too small to get a good look at. Here are a few of my favourites from when I was first starting out up until quite recently, along with whatever I can remember about when I took them.
It has been a long time since I last did any proper photography so I thought it was about time for a bit of a shake up!
As such, B Taberham Photography has become Taberham Imaging, a new name for my new site which aims to be more of an active project than a portfolio.
To reflect this, the blog now takes centre stage and the portfolio takes a bit more of a back seat (don't worry though, you can still find it here)
To celebrate my new site and to bring us into the new year, here is a little selection of some of my favourite images from the past few year!
