Re: Walking boots

I've had a pair of Timberland boots for about 15 years and they have been great and were not unduly expensive. I've also got a pair of Mephisto walking boots that were expensive but are very...

Re: Upcoming Exhibition

Kahaila does tasty snacks rather than cooked food. If it’s a full English, try Franze and Evans on the corner of Redchurch Street and Swanfield Street, just 2 minutes from Kahaila. In Brick Lane...

Re: Upcoming Exhibition

Thanks for the good wishes, very encouraging at this time of great nervousness.

I've had a little thunk and rather than post some of the exhibits on the forum, I've decided to post some of those...

Re: More than one camera

Seems like an unnecessary expense unless you have critical requirements. In the event of a service or breakdown, maybe that would be the time to buy a second/alternative camera. If the principle of...

Re: Travel photography?

For something different, why not the Atlantic seaboard of Canada? I've been to Newfoundland six times and if I could, I'd go back tomorrow. It's the people, never met a friendlier bunch. My paper...

Re: Affinity Photo 1.7 beta

Affinity Photo has launched version 1.7.1. Something flashed by as I was working on an image so it seems to have happened automatically. The speed problem is much better and the Nik Collection now...

Re: Olympus 12-40 or Panasonic 12-35?

I am a huge fan of the 12-35mm, I bought it before the 12-40mm was launched. I have tried the latter and while undoubtably it is a very fine lens, I prefer the Panasonic. Light and very very good...

Re: The Farne Islands

Re: Affinity Photo 1.7 beta

I'm a big fan of Affinity but have to say that since the 'upgrade' to version 1.7, certain tasks such as selection refinement run much more slowly than previously, difficult to be exact but I'd say...

Re: Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8

I can't help you but if there is one lens in my collection that I will never part with, it is the 12-35mm Panasonic, mine was bought before the 12-40mm was introduced by Olympus. I've tried the...

Re: Ralph Gibson: an exhibition of his work

Re: Printing

Hi Walti

This month’s Black & White Photography Magazine covers 6 labs in case that’s the way you go. I use Simlab, about £1.50 inc. VAT for 18”x 12” print. This means that I can reprint edits...
