Default Meh Bro and his GF

Here's a pic of my brother and his girlfriend. I told them not to pose and just converse/act as normal, forget im there, I'm not a fan of "say cheese at the cam" photo's, they look very un-natural to me :shock:

Hehe thx steve,

Just noticed your location, chester, i'm about 5 minutes drive from Man airport hehe Any locations you care to recommend for nice landscape shots.

Buxton sprung to mind, was hoping for somewhere a little more local though.

Tatton Park's nice. Try also Lyme Park.

Countryside near to Knutsford on the A50 to Holmes Chapel road.

Beeston Castle and Peckforton Castle area on the Sandstone trail. Take a look at my pics on webshots to see for yourself - my fav area in the world.

Early morning in Tatton Park in the winter over the lake with the mist - didn't have my cam that morning.

Jodral Bank makes an interesting subject.

Right next to M-Chester Airport is that Mill place - National Trust place.

You're in spitting distance of the Peak District.

The big problem in this cloudy country is the boring grey skies we get too much of but we are blessed with exceptionally beautiful countryside.

God tell me about it, i'm just starting out in photography and my main issues are it rains all the bloody time ! lol

May I ask if u have any tips regarding the light, and recommended white balance settings, EV ranges, etc, i've been fiddling to try and compensate, and photoshop is a godsend, but im still having difficulty.

Most of what I do is aperture priority to maximise DOF for Landscapes. Sometimes I bracket with bright sky backgrounds. I've never really found white balance a problem outdoors.

I usually bracket +- 0.3 and 0.7, just keep practising and above all get to know your own individual camera and its quirks.

My cam usually does a very good job by itself.
