You know when your writing and you read it back and nothing makes sense,  you know what you are trying to say but it just doesnt come across in your words. The other week I had this feeling so I decided to make a video on YouTube.

Many years ago (1605 in fact) the people of England stared to celebrate Gunpowder Treason Day and the fact that King James I of England and VI of Scotland had served a assassination plot. Robert Catesby had a plan to blow up the House of Lords to take a Protestant King off the thrown and replace him with a Catholic head of state, with his 12 accomplices would try to execute this by sneaking 36 barrels of gunpowder in to a undercroft under the House of lords. Nowadays we call it Firework Night, we have bonfires and set off rockets that explode with a huge bang and a mass of colour that fills the sky this as a photographer is grate to get out and get some grate shots. In this post. I am going to run through what i do when shooting fireworks.

Cotswold Wildlife Park

Here in England we had a couple of weeks of very nice weather, which can only be described as our summer. As a result of this Em decided she wanted to go to Cotswold Wildlife Park, I thought grate it will be a good test for a backpack I just bought and a chance to get some nice shots of the animals. Some nice shots I did get along with some very blurry ones more to come about this later. All in all it was a very nice day it was very hot which is a luxury for us and I'm glad we decided to go out and do something.

With HDR being such a huge part of photography I find my self bracketing everything. Whether its because I want to tone map the image later in post, or just to get the best exposure possible, and bracketing is a very good way to achieve this. There are a few ways you can do this and in this blog I'm going to run through the settings I use and why I use them.
