side of Rob’s Banjo just for a different aspect (and the cleanest part!!) as it hangs by the door this was the only light that I used – daylight!

Sets of Two

Play for Me

We live in the West of France in the Poitou Charentes region, I love where we live and take a lot of inspiration for photography from the countryside and wonderful regions around us.

I have not had any formal training and just feel comfortable behind the lens, enjoying the feeling of liberty and fun that is to be had with a camera.

I also have a FaceBook Page

    You are all obviously quite musical, another lovely photo, you seem to be getting along fine with that new lens. Have you thought of doing a pair of images for that group sets of 2? Some of these music ones would work!

  • Hello!! well there is an ability lets say that!! Thank you for your comment Squealia, I have thought about a possible for this one but am going to play with another instrument before I make up me mind! The Piccolos are already in sets of two so I uploaded this banjo one as a little Bird said that it would go well with the guitar but as I said playtime first :))

    Excellent Pam, perfect crop, the lighting and composition are spot on and I love the contrast between wood and metal!!!

  • Thank you George this is as is from the camera so the crop was in the lens that is the other great thing about “the lens” it gives me that ability to get close and personal – what fun eh? You know how much I appreciate your comments so thank you for this :))x

    Love this as-is photo, as well as the <a href=" photo</a>.
    This is a 50mm prime lens? Do you use a tripod to obtain such clarity?

  • Hi Thank you Jan for your comment it is much appreciated – it is a 50mm f/1.8 II canon lens – um not sure if that is a prime lens ?? I don’t use a tripod I must admit I find it harder to move around if I do..I like the fact that I can take the camera where I want! Maybe if I did it would be better I don’t know!!?? Thank you for stopping by it is very much appreciated :))
