A Rough Guide to Filming the Police during a Stop and Search

On the 8th August 2013, I submitted a FOI request due to the possibility of being classed as a Terrorist for filming / photographic police officers ETC. – Section 58A of the Terrorism Act 2000 (to date, I’ve still recieved no response).  I noticed that another user on What Do They Know has also submitted a request regarding filming: Filming Constables in a Public Place.

It is from this second request that I have came across the link: A rough guide to filiming the police during a stop and search. A nice useful article, that many people should read and take the advice of. Even more so with the recent Stop and Search by the Home Office of “Immigration Offenders”.

New Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm F/1.8G Lens…

1-8g-lenseSo, with the growing demand for excellent Bokeh style photography, I’ve just got my new Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm F/1.8G Lens…  Was quite a bargain really, at £149.99 from Amazon (next day delivery).  I was looking at a second hand one from (£139.99), but opted to go for a new one for the extra tenner.  At least then i’ve got that “Piece of mind” should something go wrong.

I’ve got a fair few bits of Nikon gear, and cannot fault the quality.  Even if it adds up to a pricey set.  However, looking at getting some fabulous shots with this little Nifty Fifty.

All of the reviews etc rate it close to 100% value and quality wise.  However, the best part being that fantastically wide open F1.8 aparture which will be perfect for those low light shots (unlike the 18-55mm that is only F5.6).  This will let me keep the ISO down (reducing image noise) whilst giving an excellent sharp, clear and well lit subject.  I’ll get some photos up soon. 🙂
