  1. Great photos Alan was out and about myself yesterday and Saturday got some great shots still learning but reall y enjoying it great site cheers

    • Thanks, glad you like it! Well, it’ll be Fringe time soon so there will be lots to photograph there. It’s great for trying things out, portraits and crowd stuff, always great fun 🙂

  2. What kit were you using at festival was it 70-200 lens or 24-70 I was using 24-70 but found it was hunting a lot I think the 70-200 might have been a better shout with vr.got some great keepers I never really used manual focus but will try like the parade on Sunday auto focus works fast when people are on the move your opinion please. Your photos were stunning great colours the kit can get a bit heavy when you are out for the day but this is the joys of photography cheers

  3. Thanks! On Sunday I used my 55-200 till the parade had passed by. Then I had a wee wander with the 18-55 kit lens which I usually have set at 24mm, for closer shots of people in the crowd etc. With that I normally pre focus it to a certain distance so that I know my range and don’t have to auto focus, and I can take the shot instantly without missing anything. I have a 35mm SLR too, with some nice manual lenses that I can use on my DSLR as well, so I’ll be experimenting with those at the Fringe. Really looking forward to that. It’s really a matter of finding what works best for you, in regard to what you’re trying to do. 24-70 sounds good to me, especially for these kinds of events. But like you say, the closer zoom was handy on Sunday.

    • Thanks for your comments Alan I will take them on board I may go out this week with a Nikon 50mm f1/4 and take as many shots as I can although the 24-70 is a fantastic lens the bokeh is not as good as the 50mm as you will know the 70-200 at 2.8 is fantastic too practise makes perfect as they say as you said what suits your style I will just keep trying things out cheers
