Your camera will be different to mine, although most DSLRs have many things in common. And all cameras have some similarities.
The weather is cold, mostly wet, grey, and I haven’t had the camera out properly in weeks. So, until the weather improves, it’s all about learning again.
I am debating possibly expanding. No not my waistline, although that seems to be happening all by itself… But that’s another thing. After a facebook conversation and some thought, I wonder if you might be interested in some of my images as prints. I’m thinking around A4, or similar in size, with a card mount. … Continue reading Would you buy prints?
In life, things change all the time, and how we deal with that is so important. Change can be unsettling, but it can also be vibrant and exhilarating. It also often involves making a mess. Right now, we are stripping the wallpaper from the dining room, and it’s making a mess. It’s ugly, feels cold, … Continue reading Making a mess
Over this weekend I have been preparing images for some new greeting card designs. I made sure to include some previous designs that were popular, and sold out, too. It wasn’t easy to choose the images. But they are with the printer and I now wait for the cards to arrive. When they do I’ll … Continue reading New Greeting Card Designs

Imperfection can be a learning experience, a light moment, funny, or sometimes frustrating. Do you want to know why I love digital photography? I can go out, take hundreds of pictures, and I can view them within minutes of getting home. I can walk through the door, make a pot of tea, fire up the … Continue reading Imperfection
I declare the Sarah Barnard shop open for business! The shop is now open again, and linked to the lower of the top menus. I decided to reactivate the shop, and have the greeting cards back on for sale. They sold reasonably well when they were available before, so it makes sense. All the images … Continue reading The Shop is Open
On Wednesday evenings I get about an hour to waste at the beach. Youngest offspring is at Police Youth Volunteers, and after I’ve dropped her off, I get to go and chill out at Aberavon Beach. At this time if year, I get to watch the sun go down. Mostly it’s blinding when you look … Continue reading Sunset at the beach
