    1. Hi Saralyn, I’ve had this one for 15 years, I’m not even sure what it is but it has solid metal legs that fold around together in the same way a C-stand does.

  1. Hi Karl,

    I have noticed that in some instances you are not using the lens hood at all. Besides the cases when you are using filters, is this anyhow related to the lenses’ angle of view only or there are also some other reasons behind it?

    1. Hi Bogdan, I try to use them where ever possible, also in the studio. The exceptions to this will be if I’m using filters or I’ve just forgotten or left it behind!

  2. You don’t need to hide from Seagulls in St Ives, Cornwall…..a seagull saw the ice cream in my hand a nicked it on a fly-by raid! Next time my partner will hold the ice cream and I shall have my camera in hand – live bait 🙂

  3. I visited Guernsey in the spring and have photos from that exact spot. I’ve also got a piece of pink granite on my fireplace right under the TV that I’m watching this on. Small world.
