As I live my life between London and Northants, Tom K came up with the idea that he should have a small team he can lead in each location, to save effort moving guys back and forth - my god he is not only good looking... but a genius too! Of course Tom K has to travel back and forth with me in my backpack though...  Very Happy

Here is Tom K


Here is his Northants Crew... Hawke, Seven and (Ballsy) Blake!

Cheers Dal! Yeah, they are tight crews, just a few on each... but that is the way it's going to have to be for a while!

I'll do a London Crew shot too soon!

A great autumnal pic Ralph.

A couple of random historical facts about Tom's country HQ Northamptonshire.

1st president of the US, George Washington's family were originally from there. If great, great grandpappy Washington hadn't sailed off to the colonies, George would have been a Northants boy himself. Just like Washington, Tom cannot tell a lie. When he says he's the most handsome VAM in the world he believes 100% it's the truth!

Northants was a parlimentary strong hold during the English civil war and Cromwell's forces soundly defeated the royalists at the battle of Naesby in the county. I have no idea which side Tom would have been on but I just don't see him as a boring, efficiently uniformed roundhead. With his natural panache and flair he'd more likely have been a flamboyant, country gentleman Cavalier which unfortunately would have meant he'd probably have ended up in the same jail as King Charles when he was imprisoned in Northants at the end of the war!

I have been playing around with the photo editor again and come up with this cool monochrome technique, so created a collage with it of Tom K and his Air Adventurer buddy Ezio!

PostSubject: Tom's Crew on the bookshelf   Mon Nov 28, 2016 5:52 pm

Just thought I'd have a go at trying to capture the bookshelf display today... low light, super grainy, but I guess that adds a bit of atmosphere...  Cool

Thanks Dal!

Nicely kitted out, they look really good Ralph! Very Happy


To prevent low light grainy noise, use the lowest ISO setting/slower shutter speed, usually about 80-100 ISO on your T*40 and other Panasonics..

Use a tripod and the camera's timer at this shutter speed, try to get plenty of light onto the subject from just behind your camera, i usually hold a desk lamp above my head with a 100W pearl white bulb  Wink
