Nikon Coolpix S33 / S32 review: The Ultimate Camera For Children

This review has been written after my daughter has been using a Nikon S32 for nine months, but it’s relevant to the newer Nikon S33 as it’s only marginally different. In March 2015 my daughter turned five years old and I decided to get her camera. Quite often I would find myself being art directed and being told to take photos of various different mundane things by her; Matilda can be a regular little Martin Parr. I decided it would be far easier to get her a camera of her own so she could take her own photos, and being a photographer I wanted to get her something decent.

More Adobe Lightroom tips you might not know

It’s been a little while since I’ve written some new hidden Lightroom tips. These tips are not aimed at the advanced or newbie user as they’re tips I’ve been told about, they’re not the kind of thing you would pick up exploring the software. These new tips include things like the magic of Match Total Exposures, revealing what area you have a selected with an Adjustment Brush, making fine adjustments with touching sliders and more. If you find these tips handy check out my other Lightroom articles which includes other tip articles here.

MSK graffiti crew cover 100 meters of the Brighton i360’s hoarding

A group of graffiti artists from the MSK crew were invited to cover 100 meters of hoarding along the sea facing part of the Brighton i360 site last Sunday (9th August). I went along to document the process, last year there was a smaller event where I met four of the artists that were painting on Sunday. This time round 14 artists were painting all day: 192, Aroe, Alert, Aups, Avk, Gary, Jiroe, Morf, Msk, Owed, Rebus, Rench, Twesh, Vodka, Warg and Yesb. Usually when I’m shooting for i360 I am in trousers with hi-vis and hard hat, it was nice to be shooting in the sunshine with my shorts, baseball cap and Birkenstocks on.
