It’s my favourite time of year again here in Dorset, the woods are carpeted with bluebells and the leaves on the trees are bursting from their buds. Bluebells are one of my favourite flowers to spend time with and to photograph so I thought I would write a post about how I go about photographing … More Photographing Bluebells

I have often wondered what kind of imagery I would be able to create using a different camera, so I was really excited when Olympus sent me an OMD E-M10 III to try out and write about. In this post I’ll share with you how I got on with the camera and the lenses which … More Olympus OMD E-M10 III
