For quite a while now, I have been looking for something to make macro photography easier and felt that it shouldn’t be too long before the camera manufacturers take the screen off the camera and allow us to view it anywhere wirelessly.

I have heard it before but never experienced it for myself – until now. For my latest project I am taking pictures of buildings designed by the Regency architect, John Nash.
