After hearing about TriggerTrap, I just had to buy it… I’ve wanted to start doing timelapse photography/video for ages, but having the 500d, I have to book the equipment out and that means I can’t just do it randomly… Triggertrap is a little wire and a free app that enables you to hook up your DSLR to your mobile! It’s really handy, and quite cheap too! Luckily I had some Amazon gift vouchers, otherwise I wouldn’t have bought it so soon…
Anyway, expect some timelapse attempts in the next few months. Looking forward to using it in Finland next year!
Here’s a short video of me doing some Biodiversity Monitoring work A couple of the exposures are off, but ah well!
I’m always amazed when I see just how detailed leaves can be up close. Taken using my 100mm macro and an off camera flash, used to backlight the leaves.
I have just finished my second week of University, second year! The first week was very busy as I had a block module, and was in every day 9-5 doing Biodiversity Monitoring. We looked at a lot of different survey techniques, carried out our own surveys and just generally had a lot of fun! It was good to get back into work, and to learn completely new things.
The second week was regular lectures, starting new things and getting into our expedition planning. Glad to be back!
Just thought I would post a little video that I got today. I’m going to be making a little film on the small things in nature, so keep an eye out for that in the next month!

I have been looking for a good tree guide for ages, as I really do need one to help me on my course. I mean, it’s not completely necessary but it’s a good ‘skill’ to have! I’ve gotten better at I.D-ing trees in the last year though, during my course. I found this guide on Amazon, and the reviews for it were great so I took a chance and bought it.
Now my Grandad had lots of Reader’s Digest books in his house, and I have looked through a few of them and I think they are probably worth all the money! This book definitely shows it, though I did get it for less than £2. (Bargain!)
There are pages which show different kinds of broad-leaved and coniferous trees, so you can compare the leaf that you have. These then lead you to the pages needed to properly identify it. It seems really useful, though I haven’t actually used it yet!
This is what a typical page looks like. Lots of information included about the trees as well as good images!
So yeah… I like my new book!
I will be reviewing some walking shoes in the next week so look out for those!
