London Fashion Week 2013, February

London Fashion Week 2013 is just coming to a close, with the spring and summer collections making their debut on the catwalk at Somerset House on the Strand. Once again, I took my place in the photographer’s pit to record the parade of bright colourful trends (a slightly incongruous sight given the Arctic weather we’re […]

    Lindsey you are one of the most prolific and versatile photographers I’ve ever met! I suspect thats the key to success these days, to be very good at several things. I wonder how many photographers have your breadth of talent? I saw your recent BIPP Fellowship panel – in a word AMAZING. I knew you were going to do a portraiture panel but to choose animals as your subjects was risky to say the least, but your images were incredible. Love your catwalk stuff as well, I can’t imagine the credentials you must need to be one of the show photographers! Nat x

    Thank you Nat, I think these days it pays to diversify, if you can. Of course it makes sense to be a specialist in something first.

  • Mag D - February 25, 2013 - 9:11 am

    Lindsay, brilliant account of the events leading up to the actual show, certainly need stamina and expertise. Photos are perfectly shot. This is where your experience and obvious love of photography comes into play. Thank you.

  • Stephen Scharf - February 25, 2013 - 4:38 pm

    Absolutely beautiful photos, Lindsay. Impressed with your handling of the available light. Looks ike the 5D MKIII is certainly the tool for this job, it appears.

    Boy, I guess sunglasses are in this coming season!

  • Lindsay - February 25, 2013 - 5:26 pm

    Thank you Stephen – the hair/sunglasses combo was a bit confusing, all the girls looked identical!

Wildlife Photography Surrey | European Eagle Owl

The European Eagle Owl was once fairly common in Britain. However, as is all too common, the birds became extinct in the wild thanks to human persecution. However this wonderful bird has started to reappear in parts of the UK. Eagle Owls are absolutely enormous, you really have to see one in the flesh to […]

    What a beautiful portrait of Ethel the Eagle Owl, all fluffed up. I have never seen one of these Owls. Thank you.

  • Lindsay - February 24, 2013 - 6:54 pm

    There are some apparently in the wild now – that must be quite a sight if you happen upon one! Otherwise sanctuaries and bird of prey centres may have them. Ethel lives at the British Wildlife Centre in Surrey, along with several other beautiful native owls.

  • Stephen Scharf - February 27, 2013 - 7:53 am

    Wow! Ethel is gorgeous, stunning photo, Lindsay. I’ve never seen an eagle owl, either.

  • Lindsay - February 27, 2013 - 10:17 am

    Thank you Stephen, Ethel it is very beautiful and her talons are big enough and strong enough to crush the skull of a small deer!

    Great B+W image.

    I’m a recent convert to the EM5 from my FX Nikon, and love the way it renders all subjects, especially wildlife. Some B+Ws of mine:

  • Lindsay Dobson - October 25, 2013 - 10:25 am

    AW – ovely wildlife shots on your Blog! The system is great for wildlife photography given the crop factor and therefore the reach of many of the available lenses, at a size which enables one to comfortably carry the equipment all day, something I could not do easily with large bodies and lenses.

PZ 14-42 Pancake Zoom Lens | London

The PZ 14-42 Pancake Zoom Lens is a fairly recent addition to my Micro 4/3 lens lineup and I have to say, the more I use this little lens, the more I love it. Owning anything which might be described as a “kit lens” usually comes with a series of compromises, such as a slow […]

    Oh, Lindsay!
    Now you are making me miss London.
    I really want to spend the day wandering around the Tate Modern.
    Thanks for sharing!

  • Lindsay - February 22, 2013 - 9:51 am

    Paul, I will happily swap places with you! (-: I find London a tiring place, there are a few boltholes, but not quite in the same league as what you have in Kyoto!

  • Mag D - February 23, 2013 - 5:37 pm

    Super write-up Lindsay. Photos are just great, a whole new insight to back streets of London. St. Paul’s magnificent building, photographed to perfection. Tate Modern very impressive. Loved them all. Thank you.

  • DRichards - March 21, 2013 - 11:16 pm

    Great pictures. I’ve just got the X100 and this inspires me to go an explore London. Thanks

  • Lindsay - March 22, 2013 - 3:07 pm

    DRichards – many thanks for the kind comment, I think you’ll have a lot of fun with your X100, it’s ideal for city photography.

  • Chris Kelly - March 23, 2013 - 6:11 pm

    I really like your work Lindsay – you see things in the same way as I try to.
    I bought an OM-D E5 in November and I’m still adjusting to it after many years using Nikon FF. Love the form factor. I have been using the 12-50 kit lens but seeing your results with the PZ14-42 I am seriously tempted! I have the 45 f1.8, which is a great little lens.

  • Lindsay - March 25, 2013 - 5:21 pm

    Hi Chris, the 14-42 is a very useful little lens, making the OMD compact enough to carry under a coat or jacket. The copy I have is very sharp, in fact I was using it in the studio over the weekend and it was great. I agree the 45 is terrific, gorgeous for portraits.

  • Vito Bruschini - November 30, 2013 - 9:31 am

    I’d like me to take photos of Rome with love as you take photos of London.
    Sorry for my bad english.

  • Lindsay Dobson - November 30, 2013 - 10:32 am

    Thank you Vito, Rome is a wonderful place for photography!

Micro Four Thirds Zoom Lenses | Panasonic 100-300

I am now accumulating a really nice collection of Micro four thirds zoom lenses and I have to say I’m blown away by the optical quality of most of them. The Panasonic 100-300 is quite an extreme lens in many ways, since it offers a field of view equivalent to 200-600mm in general 35mm terms. […]

    Thank you, once again, for sharing your knowledge and expertise. As a very amateur photographer, I do enjoy your write-ups, quite fascinating, and also very helpful.
