  1. Good to see you have the same idea as we use, shooting stills documentary style but, black and white, the whole idea is colour, but if that`s your style that is OK.
    I use the documentary style as I used to be a documentary cinematographer before I retired.
    I note your comment about the weather at Honiton, last year [2013] it rained like a monsoon, this year was perfect. Thank you for your visit to our web site.

  2. thanks for the comment – i thought about colour but i find high iso digital colour can be a bit hit and miss especially mixed with sodium street lighting, so used the default nikon capture nxd black and white profile.
