Not a photographer, but one of the worlds great visual artists. A sculpter, painter, architect and poet. Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, was born 6th March 1475 and died 18th February 1564 aged 88.

If photography had been around in his lifetime he would probably have been a great photographer as well.

Screen envy…

Our first ever Wanstead Fringe finished last weekend. There were wonderful events all week, music, storytelling, a cherry pie baking competition and I conducted a series of photo walks. During one of these walks the battery died on one of the participants camera, undeterred she whipped out her ipad from her bag and carried on shooting. As I appeared over her shoulder watching her compose and frame I was immediately overcome with a case of live view screen envy – how can I fix an ipad size screen to the back of my Nikon?

Technical Info: Nikon D7000 handheld in aperture priority mode, with Nikon 17/55mm f2.8 zoom lens. Exposure 1/125 of a second. Aperture f4 and ISO 400.
