Blog Archive

Welcome to the archive of blog posts at Ian’s Studio.  You will find lots of different things here.  For many years “blog” was very much a catch-all term for any posts that weren’t “Photos of the Day” or “Sales” posts.  Now blog posts tend to either be something topical, hints and tips or my general thoughts on photography and photographs.   Enjoy.   (PS.

BLOG 26 Feb 2018 – Photography in a War Zone

I have never been a war photographer; I never want to be a war photographer.  I never photographed a riot and I hope I never will.  On Shrove Tuesday (Mardi Gras) the MV Magellan was docked in Ponta Delgada in The Azores.  Each year, the town celebrates Mardi Gras by having a massive water fight along the main road through the town.  It was great fun but also a little [...]

BLOG 8 Feb 2018: Street Photography

I don’t do a lot of ‘street photography’  just photographing people in the street, it has never been something that I have been totally comfortable doing.  Last year (13 June 2017) I posted a blog post all about the ethics of doing street photography and explaining why I am often uncomfortable doing it.  You may wish to have a read of that blog post if this subject interests you.  I’m [...]
