About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Ah. Simply wonderful, calming, and serene, my friend.


  2. This is breathtaking, bud. The colors warm me. 🧑🀎


  3. Nice.
    I always find it interesting to read what you’ve taken your photographs with. You seem to be getting good value out of your little TG-5 πŸ™‚

      Thanks, Mr C, glad you find the technical details of interest. I sometimes wonder about including such details but (a) I suppose they are a result of my science / data analysis background to some extent, as are the precise post numbers; and (b) they’re for my info too, and especially so when I make photobooks, tho I haven’t done one of those for a couple of years.

      Have to say I’m very impressed with the TG-5, its both highly portable and capable / versatile; I’ll be expanding a bit on it in Outer Suburbs 200, which is coming soon. An old friend, Gary Bolstad at krikitarts, was talking similarly about the TG-4 this morning. Adrian πŸ™‚

      • It’s interesting how many people gravitate to the latest, biggest, highest pixel count, largest sensor technology and perhaps overlook some of the small or even older cameras. Newest isn’t always best. I know that for example the latest Olympus E-M10 mkIII is now made of a plastic/resin whereas it’s previous incarnation was all metal and far more customisable. I have a few different cameras featuring M43, APS-C and 1″ sensors but none of them are latest or current models. Actually I would be reluctant to upgrade any of them and certainly wouldn’t want to pay the premium price tag!
        Onto your blog – I think you pitch the content at the perfect level. It doesn’t feel anoraky in the way that some photo blogs can. I can see that you also put a lot of effort into linking the various series of images together and that is a nice way for people to navigate your site. In essence you’ve hit on a great format. I’m sure my sentiments will be shared by many of your audience/followers/viewers. What is the correct term? πŸ™‚
        The TG series seem to be very capable cameras and the images you from it a very appealing.
        Don’t get blown away in the storm
        Best wishes
        Mr C

          Thank you very much for the good things you say about this blog, Mr C, they’re very encouraging.

          I have a high pixel camera, the Nikon D800, but it doesn’t get used now. For me, about 24MP is fine, but I do find full frame very useful (ie the Z 6), albeit the TG-5’s sensor is far smaller. Two things to note though.

          First that high pixel cameras demand better photographic technique, as every little error, eg an unsteady hand, shows. But that said, a recent large format camera (?from Fujifilm?) has such good built in stabilisation that this problem is effectively overcome.

          But second is that advances in sensor design do mean that modern sensors are significantly better than earlier ones.

          • Indeed. All good and valid points well made πŸ™‚
            It’s important to understand the things you mention but I know I’ve seen some brilliant images made with (for want of a better term) point and shoot cameras or cameras at least with small sensors and of course the inverse, of images made by people with expensive kit who value the gear more than photographic skills or technique. The saying all gear and no idea is something I heard someone saying once! A big sensor is never going to resolve a bad composition but a good composition can generally be resolved with any size sensor πŸ™‚
            I leave you in peace now. Have a great week.
            Best wishes
            Mr C πŸ™‚

This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
