Re: Unless you've got a helicopter ......

Ditch the Sat Nav it's a 5min drive from the A21 most of it along a road wide enough for two trucks to pass. Must admit some of the country roads in the area are bit tight but you very rarely need to...

Re: Umbrellas for flash

Try looking at Cotswold Photo on EBay, they do some decent stuff. Also bought some cheap reflectors branded Photo R. Only experience with Neewer has been a tripod plate and a clamp both seem well...

Re: Black and White - Is digital up to it?

Re: Some shots returning from the Pen F launch
