The Beach, The X-T3, The 50-230. What Fun!

I’ve had a couple of short little walks out as I try and get myself back into fitness, and feeling as good as I can again. So I thought, what better way than to get a lens I have neglected for a while, and go and take some photographs!

Armed with the X-T3 and the XC50-230mm, I walked around the beach over the last couple of days with my boy and took some photos. Edited in Darktable (because I’m enjoying editing a minute), here are the results.

I have to say, I am pretty happy with my photography lately. I’ve slowed down and have certain compositions in mind. I’ve come to realise, that equipment doesn’t matter, it really doesn’t. I can be photographing with the phone, the Olympus or the Fujifilm, and the results are always impressive. I’m shooting from the heart much more, looking for images that tell a story. I’m editing in a way where I like the results and enjoying the process of editing the raw file. If I’m editing the jpegs, I may as well just edit the raw, there’s no difference but I get a little more control in highlights which is nice when needed.

Until next time folks…. Adios.

  2. Great shots Mark, quite a variety of them there. I have been following you for a while now, I just love your enthusiasm and passion. As I live in South Wales, I also easily recognise most of the locations which you have chosen. This particular area I would certainly not class as glamorous, but you have still managed to portray some very emotive images, quite a cross section.

    Also, that 50-230 lens is so much bang for the buck, I have it myself, and am never disappointed in it’s images. Glad that you are on the road to recovery, photography can be both therapeutic and healing, so do keep up the good work.

    Cheers, all the best to you, Peter

      Thank you once again for your comments, and if you’re ever free on Tuesdays, feel free to ask me where I’m taking my photography group and we’d love to meet up and just share our passion.
