I receive your updates and enjoyed your thumbnail photos. Would you mind if I used one or two in my garden club newsletter for illustrative purposes?

Dear Miriam – that would be fine – where do you garden by the way? Best wishes, Martin
Okay; those kitties are not what I expected to see with a bunch of pictures from a nursery.
The Cats of Petersham are a very important part of the life of the Nurseries! If you are on instagram look out @thugthepetershamcat ….
Stunning photographs. Would you consider doing a post on how you take photos/the camera and lenses you use? Or maybe you have already done one – pls do point me in the right direction. Robin
Thank you – I take photographs but don’t say how, or why, or with which equipment. I would say – take a lot of photographs and edit them down – (though I mean take out rather than photoshop) – walk around the subject, change the framing and then edit. I use aperture priority mostly and play with the depth of field, and let the camera do the maths. I love a zoom lens for the creative freedom but equally a good macro lens (also for portraiture) for the detail. I have an idea that the camera settings for each image on the site are recorded too, image by image. I have a preference for Nikon and use a Nikon D7200 body – it will be a few years before I match it for techincality! Food for thought though for a dedicated piece – thank you. Martin
