Special Access & Tours

Welcome to the 'I Just Wanna Tek Gud Photos' Blog

At least once a month we get out as a group on an organised outing of some description, and being a group of people who enjoy taking photos we usually come home with a very interesting and generally appealing selection of photos.  This blog is a record of where we have been and the photos we took at the time.

February 2014 - Thanks to some master negotiating by our outings supremo we were able to arrange a special tour of Sheffield's Central Library. Here are some of the photos.

So here are a couple from my attempts. Very challenging lighting - I really wanted to practice with the flash, which made for some pretty dud shots and a few interesting ones. I flipped between flash on and flash off. I personally quite liked the first one below - the black hole of bookishness, but does it work? That is the question?

Below, I wanted to capture the vast expanse of books. I used my 10-20mm Sigma lens at f5.6, ISO 1600, 10mm. I would like to have used a smaller aperture but without a tripod, it was nigh on impossible.
