Why should I use a compact when I have a camera on my mobile? But as mobile phones and their camera's have improved so in turn have manufacturers of compacts upped their game.

This was taken at one of my favourite spots' Clifford's Tower in York, last Bonfire Night, hand held on a Sony RX100. I use the original RX100 which when it came out was described in some quarters as the best compact camera in the world. I am not claiming that for it but it is capable of taking some amazings pics and it is a true compact ie it will slip into a jacket or trouser pocket and with a 20m sensor and Zeiss lens what's not to like?  So this 5th November why not try a compact camera?  Terence

PS I will be posting some more pics as part of a series on compacts

My HDR Landscape Photography https://www.terencemichaelphotography.com/blog/2017/8/my-hdr-landscape-photography Try HDR! It stands for High Dynamic Range and with a bit of planning you can turn out some eye catching images. Below is an image of the River Ouse, York looking north from Skeldergate Bridge. I used my trusty Manfrotto tripod and took a series of bracketed exposures. I find the best time of day is the half light where dusk is starting to fall and there is already a high contrast range. I focussed a third of the way into the image on a high F stop with a low ISO to minimise noise. Processing the raw image in Lightoom really helps. It allows a series of images to be merged to give the final HDR image still in raw format which I then adjusted further. HDR images are really attractive and open up a whole new dimension in photography.

One Light Photography https://www.terencemichaelphotography.com/blog/2017/8/whats-possible-with-one-light  

Stephen had put in some serious Gym time and wanted some pics to show the results. I used a pocket wizard triggered strobe on one side to highlight muscle definition with a silver reflector on the other. I will post a few other images from this shoot. Couldn't resist the black and white. Photo-shopped for a mean and moody look. Terence 170717 Terence Michael Photos (94 of 185)-Edit170717 Terence Michael Photos (94 of 185)-Edit

Photographing Large Groups with Flash and Pocket Wizard Radio Triggers https://www.terencemichaelphotography.com/blog/2017/1/photographing-large-groups-with-flash-and-pocket-wizard-radio-triggers Hi

Sometimes its not possible to use heavy and not very portable studio lighting particularly when you are almost always working solo.

The really nice staff at York University wanted a quick informal group portrait of their incoming first year students. I had noticed previous pics were struggling with low ambient light. Also I wanted something that wasn't a trip hazard where new students would be milling about

Solution.... Using the upstairs balcony I set up a Nikon SB910 flashgun and a Nikon SB800 flashgun mounted on TMP041016-059York University Ist Year Law StudentsGroup Portrait using Nikon Flashguns and PocketWizard Radio Triggers Pocket Wizard Flex TT5 Transceivers with one mounted on camera to transmit to the other two flashguns. Using an ISO of 800 and after a few test shots I quickly was able to get some very acceptable images. www.terencemichaelphotography
