Portsmouth Coastal Marathon 23rd December 2012.....

Chilly day (but dry - apart from the beach that is !) and a stiff south westerly breeze marked the third Portsmouth Coastal marathon. Over 900 runners braved the challenging course. I was hoping that I may have been able to post the images online on Christmas Eve but with over 10,000 images taken by the team I have to be realistic with last minute Xmas duties to perform as well so I will do my utmost to get the images online by the 27th December at the latest.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all !!
Have a great time.


***Christmas Eve update:
Indexed 6,000 today - still another 4,000 to go ! That's it for me today but the images should be up on Boxing Day.....have a great time !

Epson R3000 printer......

In October I entered a competition in Photo Pro magazine to win one of these top notch printers worth £670 having just seen one in action at the Photovision Roadshow at the Ageas Bowl. And how many comps have I entered in the past and not won - loads !!


Except this time I got a call yesterday telling me that I'd won !

It arrived today in a VERY large box. It's big. Everything about it is BIG. The first problem was to find a home for it as I already have a laser and inkjet. Fortunately its wireless so my options were increased somewhat. Anyway, it's set up and initial prints look good although I need to get some photo quality paper now and sort out ICC profiles. But - it takes NINE ink cartridges at £24 each. Have to look at the Lyson range I think.......but this is how it looks in my somewhat untidy study....

 Meanwhile it's a cold evening......

Sunset this evening.....

Really impressive sunset this evening - took this shot of the Southsea Bandstand.....







(PS - only Photoshop work was to clone out sensor dust spots. The D3 was set to Vivid to boost the colours a tad but otherwise it is "as was")

...and today I was at the Brighton 10k...

One of Anthony Bliss's team for the Brighton 10k this morning - 2700 ish runners, lovely day, fast and flat course - should have been some PBs today.
Go to Sussex Sport photography early next week to view the photos.....

Needed a break today......!

After working on a wedding and three album orders most of the day, thought I'd take a stroll along the beach at Southsea. Just happened to have the camera with me....

Reach charity event 27th Oct 2012....

Busy day yesterday - photographed the Junior Great South Runs/5k (freezing cold too !) then set up a studio background and lights for the Reach charity event at the Marriott Hotel - click on Reach for their website and donations. For a change I set up a black backdrop which, with the hair light, looked good. I also had the opportunity to be photographed with an Olympian - Claire Cashmore who won a silver in the London paraolympics this year. Lovely evening was had by all...

Went to Arundel yesterday for Clare and Mark's wedding. The venue was the historic grade 2 listed Townhall with its magnificent ceremony room. Time was marching on after the ceremony but we managed to get the group shots in the bag before it got too dark and started to rain !
