First Outing

My first proper outing with my new Nikon D810  was St Georges Fayre in the local town of March. Myself and Ed Bray a local and very talented videographer who I have worked with a lot were booked for specific areas of the event all based on the Market Place. I had practiced with the camera beforehand as needed to feel confident using it and accessing the controls without thinking. The bright sunny day meant lots of contrasty light to deal with which was an ideal test for me with the 24-70mm lens. I had the 70-300mm lens on one of my D700s for the longer shots.

It was great comparing the images from both cameras back in the office with the files being 3X bigger on the new camera. Whist there I also did some images for 20Twenty a great organisations that helps some talented local youngsters fulfil their potential.


Enjoy some of the images taken on a bright hot day as I sit here with the rain lashing down.
