I'm adding a new folder called Severn Estuary which will contain many of my shots around that large, natural feature of the South West of the UK. The Severn crossings feature quite a lot here, including the forgotten Aust ferry crossing, once used by Bob Dylan in a '60s photoshoot before the first Severn Bridge was completed. The ferry no longer exists. The picture featured here was taken from under the second Severn bridge.

IMPORTANT NOTE: There was a strange link on this site to another Alan Jacobs on Facebook. This is now fixed and you should only be able to contact me, PixAl, via the links on this site.

Arriving In The Not-Too-Distant Future http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/9/arriving-in-the-not-too-distant-future I'm back from Canada and will be posting some new images soon - once my PC has been repaired! One thought l had while l was away - and just one - was about very expensive Medium Format cameras. There was a man on an assignment at Lake Louise and he was holding a Phase One camera. I'm not sure which version it was but l can tell you that it was expensive and very heavy. The photographer was not tall or strong. He had a suitcase to hold all his other lenses, lights, filters and reflectors. Now, he may be a very talented photographer, and he did attract a lot of interest from the curious tourists, but, l couldn't help but think if it was worth all the effort and expense.

Anyway, l managed to document the event with my Sony A7 mk2 a.nd Sony/Zeiss 35mm f2.8. No-one noticed me.

More new photos soon. Thanks for reading this and for your patience

New Year, New Camera http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/1/new-year-new-camera It's been a bit hectic in recent months. Life often gets in the way of creativity. Then, it often inspires. The weather in England has also been limiting for me. I'm not a gloomy artist who finds beauty in the dark and reflective rain-swept city pavements. (Well, not often) I like light and warm feelings. These have been in very short supply over the past months.

The title of this blog makes reference to a new camera. It's the full-frame Sony A7 mk2. Not exactly new, l agree, but relatively new to me. I've paired it with the Zeiss Loxia 2/50. This is a manual focus, e-mount lens. I have no problem using it in most situations although my focusing technique needs a bit of sharpening up with moving objects. This camera and lens combination is giving me some wonderful images. I do not need the cumbersome weight of a DSLR any more. This combination gives high quality results in a comfortably small package.

And what of Fujifilm? Regular readers will be aware that l like their cameras as well. Currently, l await the announcement about the new X-Pro2 which will be made in the early hours of Friday morning (15th January for the UK) I have the X-Pro1 and have enjoyed using it for a couple of years. The model is now over 4 years old and due for an upgrade. All the rumours point to the X-Pro2 being a rather enticing option for mirrorless users. I may have to do a trade-in!

On the subject of equipment, one problem afflicting many photographers is GAS. No, not as you might think.....GAS stands for Gear Acquisition Syndrome. It stems from a fear of being left behind and/or unprepared for whatever photographic situation may occur. It means that the photographer ends up with a huge camera bag stacked with every possible bit of the latest kit. As you may think, GAS is an addiction caused by insecurity and a lack of confidence in one's own ability. I admit to having suffered this for a year or two. You realise it is a problem when you spend more time deciding what to take on an assignment than on actually taking the photos. If you suffer from GAS, be firm with yourself. Decide on what you want to specialise in and trade in what you hardly ever use. Go for quality rather than quantity. There will be times when you are out and wishing that you had brought that 500m mirror-reflex lens with you. Be strong. Use your legs instead of a zoom. Accept that some photographs are not going to be taken. Having fewer choices is creatively liberating.

 

I will be posting some new photos soon. The one on this blog is new. It's an A7/Loxia creation. Dish Of The DayDish Of The DayEarly morning in Therma on the Greek island of Ikaria. A lady returns to the Fish Taverna (Psarotaverna) with her catch for today's menu.

Where have l been? http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/8/where-have-l-been Yes, l have been neglecting you. I've been attending to other things but l have not been ignoring the photography. Recently, l have been dealing and exchanging some of my gear in an effort to reduce my options. It's a common problem with photographers that we accumulate lenses and camera bodies over the years. It is always nice to have choices but, often, those choices restrict what we do. Many times l have thought, " I think l'd better take these extra lenses with me, just in case l need some extra "reach" or l come across a macro opportunity. Of course, a general purpose zoom might cover all bases. For me, that was ok until l caught the Prime bug. I feel that prime lenses give me that extra bit of quality l seek in a photograph.

So, in order to restrict the pressures on my back caused by an overladen bag, I needed to streamline things. I have traded in three Sony camera bodies and some longer, larger lenses in favour of a Sony A7 mk 2 and a Zeiss Loxia 50/2 (manual focus only). So far, so good. I learnt my skills in an age of manual focus and am getting back into that method of working. I haven't abandoned auto-focus and will use that where appropriate. (I've not abandoned Fujifilm either)

For the record, the Zeiss Loxia is a wonderful lens. It is sharp with a natural feel to its images and has that typical Zeiss "pop". It has been designed exclusively in E-mount for the Sony A7 series. There is a 25/2 version as well but l may not need that as l already have the gorgeous Minolta 28mm f2. Yes, l want it but l don't need it. I must be disciplined here!

In a few days, l will start posting new photos to this site. I am back.

Photography Show at the NEC http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/3/photography-show-at-the-nec Afternoon all.

The annual Photography Show takes place at Birmingham's NEC complex on 21-24th March. It is something l always look forward to. In past years, l have dragged my poor wife along. She has found some of it interesting but, in the main, for anyone not enthusiastic about photography it can get a little tedious. So.........l'm going on my own this year. Being an enthusiastic reader of photography websites and magazines, there will not be much there that surprises me. However, reading about cameras and lenses is one thing. Seeing, touching and using the latest gear is quite another. There is nothing like it. Many times l have decided against a proposed purchase after seeing the item for real. Also, l am assured that there will be the chance to buy stuff at "show prices". Usually, this means getting a good deal but l would advice anyone to make note of the best prices available on-line beforehand. Not everything labelled a bargain is actually a bargain.

The camera l would like to get a close look at is the Sony A7 mkll, This is the latest in the A7 series of full frame cameras. This update of the original A7 has image stabilization built in. This promises to be very useful when using vintage, manual lenses on the camera. In addition, Sony have produced a few more high quality lenses of their own to match the A7 series. I can't wait to see them.

My other favourite camera manufacturers, Fujifilm, are yet to announce a new version of the wonderful X-Pro 1. Sadly, there is nothing to suggest it is coming soon. That's a shame. It would have been amazing for them to show off such an anticipated camera at the show. Despite that, l will be able to get a good look at their new lenses for the X system. The on-line reviews have been very encouraging and l know from my own experience that Fujifilm produce top class glass. (!)

So, l'll be at the show on Monday, March 23rd. I will just be there as "trade" - not a very flattering term. I will have a label on so, if you notice me, say hello. I'll be glad to see you.

Back From Canada http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/1/back-from-canada I've just returned from a trip to Canada which we took to celebrate my birthday and to re-visit one of my favourite places - Banff National Park. Needless to say, it was cold and there was plenty of snow. The light was fantastic and the trip presented many photo opportunities. In some respects, the light was so good that it was difficult not to take good shots although there were issues with the reflected brightness of the snow. I used my Fujifilm X100T exclusively for this trip. It has an inbuilt ND (Neutral Density) filter which l used to restrict the amount of light getting through to the sensor. This did help to get the correct exposure when the light was very bright. I've include a few new images in the "Winter" file on this site.

All in all, l continue to be very happy with the performance of the X100T. It was an ideal travelling companion, being lightweight and high quality.

Am l glad to be home? Not really, but l might be if the forecast snow arrives here!

Oh Well, Maybe Next Time. http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/1/oh-well-maybe-next-time Firstly, a Happy New Year to all of you. Here's to a prosperous and peaceful one.

The bad news: I sustained a cut to my trigger finger which turned septic. As a result, my hand became inflamed and very painful. I had to abandon my Pinterest diary for December as l couldn't grip the camera. I will give it another go soon.

The good news: The Fujifilm X100T is performing well and l can say that it is a marked improvement over the original X100 (which l thought was amazing) Autofocus is faster, low-light performance is cleaner - even at silly ISO levels - and the controls are more convenient. The EVF is much improved and the option to use the OVF remains. Manual focusing now has extra help with a new "Dual Display" insert. I can't comment on that yet as l've not needed to use it. It has other, smaller refinements to the bodywork that make it look even more classy than it did before. I've got the "silver" version because l prefer that style. It looks like a vintage film camera and often gets a second glance from passers by when l am outside.

The fixed lens remains as 23mm f2 and the sensor - the latest X-trans - remains cropped. This gives the equivalent view of a 35mm lens on film or "full frame" cameras. I have decided to get the TCL-X100 lens converter for the camera. This converts the focal length to a "full frame" equivalent of 50mm. This was always the most popular focal length on film cameras as it mimic the view of the human eye. Having this adapter on the X100T does not degrade the image quality in any way and gives me a portable, two-focal-length option when l need to travel light. The maximun aperture of f2 remains. This seems to be the perfect solution for holidays or for when too much gear would get in the way. I hope to post some image samples by the time of my next blog.

Enjoy the rest of the winter. Look out for those misty or frosty mornings that can provide plenty of photographic opportunities. I'm off to bathe my finger!

It's Coming On Christmas http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/12/its-coming-on-christmas It certainly is. (All you Joni fans will recognise the lyric) This month, l have been posting a photo a day on Pinterest. It is my picture diary of December 2014 as l go through the month. This is a great discipline to force myself into. It means that l have to seek out and take a new image every day, even when the inspiration or willingness is not there. You can see my Pinterest board at http://www.pinterest.com/alanjacobs397

The camera l have been using is the Fujifilm X100T. It's the brand new upgrade of the X100S - in turn, the upgrade of the original X100. So far, so good. I traded in my original X100 for it and l have not been disappointed. It has so many improvements over the original version including faster operation, wi-fi connection, X-Trans 16mp sensor and "Chrome" setting which mimicks the kodachrome film look. Not sure if "it makes all the World a sunny day" ** but l am very pleased with it. I will make a more considered comment on the camera in due course.

So, for now it's back to the preparations for Christmas. For me, it is a time for peace, love and childhood memories. A Merry Christmas to you all.

Autumn Is Here http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/10/autumn-is-here After a dry and sunny September - the driest on record for England - October has brought us rain, damp and cold. As l write this, we have had 36 hours of continual rain. It's not the type of weather that encourages me to go out with my camera. Even so, there are opportunities for a good picture out there. Puddles, splashes, reflections or the occasional burst of autumn colour are there to be found.

A few days ago, l visited London. It was a typical grey, London day that we get often at this time of year. Around the Thames, l shot a lot in Black and White and concentrated on form and structure. Later on, at the Olympic Park, l found some splashes of colour around the Orbit Tower. Sadly, the tower was not open to the public as it had been booked for the filming of a TV programme. (On a Sunday in a public park - thumbs down to Sky TV for doing this!)

Regular readers will know that l use Fujifilm and Sony cameras. A couple of weeks ago, l said goodbye to my Fujifilm X100. This had been a loyal friend to me for nearly 4 years and it really did hurt for me to let it go. Why would l do this? Well, in another month, the new X100T arrives and l  decided to trade in the original for this new, improved version. I passed on the highly-rated X100S which came out last year but the X100T has more refinements and is two steps along the evolutionary line. It promises to be a perfect camera for street and travel photography. I'll let you know all about it in due course.

I have tidied up some of my galleries on this site and added a few of the shots from London. I hope you like them. There are more photos, comments and tips to be had on my Pixalphoto Facebook page.

See you in a few weeks.

Let's Rock Bristol 2014 http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/6/8 I went along to Let's Rock Bristol on Saturday. I just went as a punter with family and friends and hadn't thought about covering the event formally. However, l did take a camera and managed to get some shots among the crowd. I hope you like them.

A new camera and new audience. http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/3/a-new-camera-and-new-audience Firstly, may l welcome new viewers of my site. Particularly readers of "Just For Her" magazine where l have just placed an advert. As you will see from looking around, l have a range of original prints for sale as well as a restoration service and the availability to take on commissions.

My big news is a new camera - the Fujifilm X-Pro 1. I've just added this high quality camera to my current crop of Sony cameras. Over time, some of the photographs l have taken with it will appear here in the galleries. For now, l just need to get used to it. I have a Fujifilm X100 already - another very capable performer - and l know this latest "X" series addition to my bag will not disappoint. Once again, it's Fuji or Sony for me. They lead the way with sensor technology, have years of experience in providing quality, image-making equipment and just deliver the goods.

 

I've been getting out and about to build up my stock of images. I visited Weston-s-Mare last week and took some lovely  photos around the Grand Pier. When the tide goes out, you can walk out on the sand for a mile. (Be aware of the wet sand and muddy areas) Enjoy the Spring sunshine if you can - we had hailstorms yesterday in South Glos! I'll report back when l've done some more practicing with the X-Pro 1.

Restoration http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/3/restoration Today, l have added a gallery called "Restored". This shows some examples of the work l have done with old slides, negatives and prints. I have scanned these photographs, saving them as digital files which can then be cleaned up or otherwise adjusted to bring them back to life. In some cases, l have converted the image to Black and White as l feel it is more effective like that. All these photographs were damaged in some way. The negatives had been scratched or marked just by being in storage and not being cared for over many years. The existing prints had been faded by light or damaged by poor handling and storage.

Using a computer software programme, l have been able to remove a lot of the marks and restore faded colour. Also, l have been able to change the balance of light and dark within the pictures and make them more dynamic. With any restoration work, l strive to retain the integrity of the original image. I do not remove objects or persons. Nor do l take aspects of other photos and add them to the original. I remain respectful to the original images and to the wishes of their owners. The resultant images are, therefore, not perfectly clean. They do not look like modern, digital images and they never will. It is time-consuming work and there comes a point when further, minimal improvements can only be made for considerably more cost. I like to be realistic about this and will not spend extra time on particular images unless specifically asked to do so. Time is money, after all.

 

The images l have displayed in "Restored" are all from my family. The Paris shots are all from my original negatives.

New Year, New Targets http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/1/new-year-new-targets 2014 is here and England is very soggy. We've had rain, wind, rain, hail and yet more rain. I live near Keynsham and Saltford. Both of these places have been slowly sinking below the floodwater. It looks like the worst is now over but some areas in Somerset may stay under water for many days yet.

With the new year comes hope and a fresh outlook. I hope to attend more craft fairs and get my work out to more people via the internet. I may look to markets abroad as well. My aim is to provide quality images that are just a bit different from the normal ones seen on most sites and in most magazines. I will concentrate on light and structure while still looking out for the "odd" and "interesting".

Overall, my outlook will be optimistic. I am not going to be searching out crisis and tragedy. Life can be hard enough as it is. I will provide images of a positive nature. They are out there. In fact, they are everywhere. There is so much beauty in the ordinary, the mundane and the simple.

Today, l have updated my galleries with some new photographs. Please have a look at them.

Thanks for your support.

Have a Happy New Year.

Winter Gallery http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/12/winter-gallery Another blog within a week? Yup.

I've been looking through some of my winter photographs from the past 5 years and have created a new gallery for those l like. Some, l had forgotten about and am pleased to give them an outing now. That's my message for today. Don't discard reasonable photographs until you have looked at them again. It's fine to ditch those that are obviously not "keepers" but, where an image seems ok, keep it for a while and look at it again with fresh eyes. You may find it is better than you first thought. It might just need a crop or a run through something like Lightroom to bring out its quality.

Autumn is almost over http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/11/autumn-is-almost-over Here in England, we are in the last few days of Autumn but there is plenty still to enjoy. I have been out and about in the past month, recording the colours that nature has given us. This year has been a good one for foliage tints and berries. I have added a new gallery called Autumn Colour to reflect this. Most of the images there are new but a few are from previous years.

Officially, Winter here begins on December 1st - although the hard frost this morning tells me otherwise! - and will go on until the end of February. As a photographer, l want lots of snow with clear, crisp and frosty mornings. It's an opportunity for macro lenses and starburst filters. I love sparkling light.

A certain newspaper has "expressed" an opinion that Britain is about to be hit by the worst winter in living memory. This may prove to be nothing more than sensationalism. Most long-range forecasts do not agree with this but all long-range forecasts are doubtful affairs which rarely come true. However, l am ready for it if it comes.

The Real Santa Spotted! http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/11/santa-spotted The great man is among us again. I have seen some very poor impersonators - some wearing shades, some very slim and some not so jolly. This photo is of the real Santa. He said he will be working very hard in the next few weeks but l managed to snap him having a relaxing wander round a Christmas market in London a few days ago.

Keep an eye out for a PixAl page on Pinterest. I plan to set up a board for December and post a picture there for every day of the month. My aim will be to take a fresh picture everyday rather than just take images from my archive. It's a good discipline and something l've not attempted before. Let's hope the predicted winter blast comes in to make things sparkle out there.

Back from Corfu http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/9/back-from-corfu Have you missed me? No?

Oh well. I've been on holiday to the Greek island of Corfu. Apart from lazing around, eating too much, drinking too much, tanning too much, l took some quite nice pictures. Some of these have been added to my "Greece" folder on this site.

I made a conscious decision to take just the minimum amount of camera gear with me. I didn't want to be lugging around bags of lenses and heavy DSLRs in 32 degrees of heat. So, off l went with my Sony NEX 7, a Sigma "A" 19mm f2.8, a Yashinon-DX 35mm f2.8 and an INA 135mm f3.5. The last two of these lenses are legacy lenses and two of my all-time favourites. The resulting photographs were very pleasing to me and show just how good the NEX 7 is when used with quality glass. I can't wait for the expected Sony NEX FF camera to be announced.

Downloads available http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/8/downloads-available I've set up some images for downloading from this site. You can use them as backgrounds on your PC, Tablet, phone.......whatever you want. These images are not for printing and there is a licence agreement to be adhered to. Other than that, please feel free to buy a download or three. They are only £1 each and are to be found in the Downloads For Sale gallery.

Those of you following me on Facebook will know that l've been using a recently purchased Minolta 28mm f2 Alpha mount lens on my Sony A77. This is the last version of a highly regarded lens which was first released in 1986 and has long since been deleted. This lens is a joy to use and produces wonderful images. It is a perfect match for the A77's sensor which demands high quality glass. If you see one of these lenses in good working order, snap it up. (ho-ho!)

 

Historical note: Minolta (Konica Minolta) cameras and lenses were always highly regarded in the photography world. I, myself, used Minolta film cameras in my youth. Sony bought Minolta a few years ago and used the company's experience and qualities to produce their first DSLR, the A100. Sony sensors are now used in many of the world's top cameras, including those at the top of the Nikon range. Sony is now developing new lenses in conjunction with Olympus while Hasselblad's new mirrorless and compact cameras are based around Sony's NEX 7 and RX100.

Bristol Balloon Fiesta 2013 http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/8/bristol-balloon-fiesta-2013 This weekend has seen the Bristol Balloon Fiesta taking place in the Ashton Court estate. With balloons from all over the world taking part, it is now the second largest balloon fiesta in the the world. In addition to the balloons, there have been demonstrations by The Red Arrows, wing-walkers and a host of trade stands. Children - and adults - were entertained with a fun fair and bouncy castles.

The wind direction was such that the balloons flew over my house on at least two occasions. It may have been three but l had got up at 5am this morning to be at the event and take some photographs. I've set up a new gallery for you to see. I may dig out some photos of the event from previous years for future inclusion here.

 

If you want me to cover a similar event as your official photographer, please contact me with your requirements.

Oldland Music Festival 2013 Photos http://pixal.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/7/oldland-music-festival-2013-photos I have posted the set of photos l took at this year's festival. It did rain - as it always seems to do on festival day - but the event carried on indoors. The Bristol Evening Post gave the event some publicity and published a brief write-up today. They sent their own photographer to cover the event. He stayed for at least 15 minutes. It would be wrong for me to criticise another photographer's work..............Anyway, have a look at my gallery.

The channel swim has been postponed for a couple of days due to bad weather. It is hoped to take place at the end of this week. I'll post more details when l have them. Until then, l am on standby with my camera bag packed.
