In my kit bag (Hoya ND 1000)

Dave ZdanowiczEquipment / Reviews, Image, Review

The Hoya ND1000 is my favourite filter to use. My entire style of photography has developed through experimenting with long exposures. Have you ever wondered how the water looks like silk on waterfalls ? or why the sea looks so peaceful ? 9/10 its due to a long exposure. An ND filter limits the amount of light picked up by … Read More

(In my kit bag) Tokina 16-28 F2.8

Dave ZdanowiczEquipment / Reviews, Image, Review

My first photos of 2016. A calm and clear night in Bradford UK

The Tokina 16-28 is a great piece of kit and is often my go to lens when I am after a sharp crisp image. The 2.8 is great for astro and lowlight photography. I have owned the lens for over a year now and it is built like a tank. I’ve used the lens in all sorts of conditions and … Read More

Vanguard Veo-AM264-R Test Drive

Dave ZdanowiczReview

This evening I took my new Vanguard Veo monopod for a test drive to see how it handles in the field. My first impressions of the monopod was that it was really light and easy to handle but the build quality was still fantastic. As a photographer who has always used a tripod this was a great opportunity to test … Read More

(in my kit bag) Hoya ND100

Dave ZdanowiczImage, Review, Trips / Locations

A shot of the Overflow Plug at Lady Bower Reservoir in Derbyshire.

The Hoya ND100 is my second favourite ND filter in my bag. I’ll be honest and say I don’t use this one quite as often as I prefer to really extend the exposures (using the ND1000)to create a more ethereal effect with my shots. Again like the ND1000 there is very little colourcast with this product and to say it … Read More

Lake District

It was an absolute pleasure to experience my first trip to the Lake District. It definitely lived up to the hype. I probably didn’t pick the best time of year to visit (in the middle of winter) but it was still awe inspiring. It rained for 90% of my visit but managed to get a few gaps in the cloud … Read More

Todays trip out took myself and my Dad to Scarborough on the East Coast. It was a magnificent sunrise and the colours bouncing off the water covered sand was amazing.   There was another couple of photographers on the beach which really added to the scene.   Man and his best friend.   I was really shocked to see some … Read More

Whitby Piers at Dawn

Todays destination is Whitby In North Yorkshire. This is one of my favourite places in the UK. Its a quaint little seaside spot ¬†with loads of hidden gems. I’ve always ventured to the Abbey side when taking photographs here so this time I thought I’d head over to the other side near the famous whalebones and beach huts. It did … Read More
