I got a little into photography back in the 35mm days.
I used to go to the TT Races then, will have to root out some prints and scan them.
All I have now is a point and shoot and have forgotten all I learnt about f stops, exposure & lighting etc so whenever I try anything it doesnt seem to work out.
I should do some research but never seem to have time.

If you have one with a good refresh rate, then you can catch action shots quite easily. Even something like catching a Leopard opening his mouth can benefit from a fast camera, but positioning, timing and framing are still important factors.
These can be practised with most cameras, so give it a go.
Anyway, back on topic, the photo attached was taken last year during the period when the Icelandic Volcano was erupting. It provided for some spectacular shots across the country, but I could only take some local shots.

Here is an old one of mine from when I was working in Egypt.
I have removed a couple of scratches & tweaked the colours a little as it was scanned directly from the negative.
With modern digital cameras it is far easier to adjust the colours before printing. With older cameras filters & the right film helped. The camera I had then was a simple instamatic.

Come on people, rule if thirds.
If you going to get into hyper-focal distance, aperture settings and exposure at least remember rule number one. Frame your shot with the rule of thirds and you'll end up with a much nicer shot
