About Nick Hurst

Hey there, I’m Nick Hurst (see the dodgy looking bloke to the right), I am a web designer and digital marketer, but enough of the day job and back to the blog. I know what you’re thinking already. “Your photos are amatuer and perhaps generic at best” I actually agree as it happens, but I shall try to improve.

So why another photography site? Let me explain…

My latest hobby is photography so I thought I would post up some of my better photos in an attempt to keep me at it, it’s really for my eyes only but if you’ve stumbled here I hope you enjoy it.

The Equipment

This section appears on most photography blogs and I don’t want to be left out. As with the majority of photographers I have equipment which is miles beyond my capabilities. The phrase ‘all the gear – no idea’ springs to mind when I look at my camera. But I’m not as bad as some people who spend thousands getting the best gear to only take a few photos with it. I spent a few hundred quid and I’m happy with what I have.

So what have a I got…

 

Nikon D5100
Nikon 35mm f1.8 prime
Nikon D40 Body
Tamron 18mm-270mm Lens
Nikon S3000 digital camera

Naturally… my ever faithful companion and skill compensator – Photoshop

 

I’ve recently sold my old and ever faithful Nikon D200 as to be honest it was just too heavy and cumbersome for normal day to day shooting.

However before selling it on I did a quick walk around tour of the cameras features and uploaded it to Youtube, check out my Nikon D200 Review.
