Practically an Amateur

We visted the National Media Museum (formally known as the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television) in Bradford today. It was quite nice to go back and see the stuff I\’d seen as a kid but know what I was looking at, if that makes sense. It was also very nice to see what they\’ve done with the place since I was last there. This picture I haven\’t posted up here because of its technical merits or because I believe it to be a good photo – it just made me chuckle.

Amateur Photography magazine has certainly come on a long way over the years 😉

This blog has rapidly turned away from being a daily photoblog and more into a portfolio of shots that I feel like sharing – either because I think they are worth sharing or maybe just because they are the best pick from a bad bunch. I found this photo about 5 shots in from the days work so hopefully I\’ll have a couple more to post up over the next couple of days.

The books were in a display cabinet on the basement floor of the media museum which is actually the kodak sponsored part of the museum, I had to shoot at ISO 1600 for most of the time we spent in there but the stuff was on a raised platform with a lot of lighting (well, it seemed a lot when we were down there). Other than that, its merely a snapshot and don\’t expect to be told its a great shot, just thought it was worth a photoblog update and gave me the oppertunity to post a bit of text with it for once.

Thanks for looking 🙂
