Its been quite sunny in Milton Keynes recently so a couple of days ago, I decided to head out into the countryside around Milton Keynes to see what I could find. I took my 5x4 and a couple of sheets of film loaded into a dark slide. I knew that there are oilseed rape fields nearby, and I knew that the colours will be nice and saturated on the Velvia 100 I used. I took me a while to find a suitable place to stop and setup my tripod, in the end I had to go through a gap in the bushes and place my tripod through a fence which was rather had to work the camera! I also managed to shoot another panorama further up the road, but the file is too big, but you can see it here. This is a stitch of 6 portrait orientated images, overlapping by 30%-40%. This is to make it easier for the software to stitch the photos together.
I am hopefully going to be able to shoot some more soon, and i'll share the results with you. I am also going to London with the family for Henry's 21'st birthday day out. I might be able to get a few shots there too. That's all for now!
