17 40 f4

4

I bought a new lens, Canon 16-35 f4 IS, to replace my good old 17-40 f4. I managed to grab a few shots with it in George Square (and Royal Exchange Square) this evening and I must say I’m so impressed. These were taken at near half second exposures and they’re pin sharp even though I was simply holding the camera as normal, no tripod or anything.

It should be added that this is the first anniversary of the terrible evening when an out of control bin lorry drove through George Square behind this big wheel killing 6 people.

Glasgow, Scotland.

Originally from the Western Isles of Scotland, I pretended to study fine art in college but it wasn’t until after I left I really got into photography, because who can afford that stuff when their in college? Not me anyway

As of right now I use a trusty 5DmkII with a 17-40 f4, 50 1.8, 100 2.8 macro and a 300 f4, I’d like to make that list longer in the future.

Someone told me my photographs are dreamy, I like that idea. I do a lot of nature stuff, landscapes, macros, still lifes but I wouldn’t confine myself to any one subject, I do weddings and stuff for work but that’s not really interesting.

I always wanted to make art but it wasn’t until I picked up a camera that I realised how I wanted to make art, I’d like to travel more, make a living off my pictures, that’s the dream!
