Sandringham ICM and InCamera Multiple Exposures

As you will have seen on some other blogs and on Instagram I have been playing with In Camera Multiple Exposures. Coupled with Intentional Camera Movement can be quite an interesting way to develop abstract ideas.

Armed with my new Camera, A Canon R mirrorless Full Frame Camera I played with these techniques as I was out with Sue on our walk around the campsite.

Most shots were from 2 - 4 exposures. Some with the White balanced changed on some all the shots.

Post camera processing has been done in Adobe Lightroom with just the basic panel plus adding vignettes and gradients to the images presented here. In some cases I have found increasing Texture and reducing Clarity and adding dehire quite an effective 'artistic' adjustment. Well I like it :)

Sandringham Fungi

Sue and I look our new camper van off to Sandringham this past weekend. We have only had the van since the beginning of October so this was our first outing. We arrive on Saturday and set up and played with the van. Sunday morning we got and decided to go for a walk around the area. we were not going to stay on the site as such but we found these glorious Fungi.

I have spend a little while trying to identify the types with little certain success. The red ons below are I think, Fly Agaric Amanita muscaria. Whatever they were called I think they are very beautiful and highly poisonous.

Points of View




This years Cambridge Camera Club Competition was set in Ely by Ann Miles.

Here is a quote from the competion instructions

1. River Ouse - A shot to include the Ouse – plenty of scope here from boats to buildings to meadows. Whatever you choose it must include the river as part of the scene.
2. Three - An image that in some way illustrates ‘3’ – could be part of a sign but also images that include three objects, people, artefacts etc
3. Ely Folk - an image including a person or people and/or their pets. A degree of humour or quirkiness will score well.
4. Cathedral Curves. An image emphasizing the use of curves in the architecture and decorations. Here you may convert your images to monochrome though colour images are just as acceptable. It can be taken inside or outside the cathedral. A permit to visit inside the Cathedral costs £9 or £6 over 60 and can be exchanged for a 1 year free pass.
5. Double Take. Any technique can be used to produce an image that comprises two or more separate elements – this can be In-camera multiple exposure, Photoshop layers or, more simply, use one image to frame another or reflection in a shop window, water etc.

There were 25 entrants. The winner of the competition sets and helps judge next years competition. There is great banter in the club that the real winner is the person who comes second.

This year the competition was won by Sue Badcock :) with a score of 88 out of 100

The Photographer who cam second was Ian Wilson with a score of 87 out of 100

Just one point difference. Well done to them both

I came joint joint third with 86 out of 100

The Judging was, as expected, extremely good. Anns comments were constructive and helpful.
