Panoramas and much more…

Despite the title “Panoramashots” this site is now much more about the wider aspects of photography, with a bias toward technical rather than artistic. In recent years I have migrated to the use of free (libre) software running on Linux Mint (based on Ubuntu).

Users of proprietary operating systems and Photoshop should also find the articles of interest as the principles are the same. Also much of the software mentioned here is also available for Windows and Mac.

Restoration of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal

My very first website (2000) featured my photographs documenting the restoration of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal in Saddleworth, Yorkshire, and I have retained a selection of these in the “Canal Archive” pages. Work began in 1980 when two locks were reinstated. It reopened to navigation in 2001.

Technical Notes and Posts

Some technical notes that have stood the test of time have been retained as static pages. Recent articles are published as posts or if appropriate, as pages. As you can see from the right hand column I have recently been looking at raw processors and a comparison of their demosaicing methods. And more recently, the limitations of compact cameras. Noise measurements on digital SLRs have produced some interesting graphs – a simple method of measurement is described.
