    Hi from Liverpool!
    I am currently located in Maghull and looking for places to explore!
    I am planning a trip to Croda chemicals soon but don't have a specific date.


    Cheers for looking! :thumb

    Welcome! Loads in/around Liverpool if you have a search, tbh try Littlewoods, your avatar pic reminded me of the old place.

    Yep, going to turn it into studio's - Given the amount of filming done in Liverpool, makes sense.

    ... I guess somebody had to be... :p

    Not quite urbex, but the old Lydiate Hall is a wonderful place to take pictures - good practice! Plus the peacocks are entertaining.

    I do a lot of mooching round the area, always happy to go out for a wander if there's anywhere specifically on your radar. What kind of stuff interests you?

    Lydiate Hall is two minutes away from the Abbey in the farm grounds, it's a ruined medieval mansion that you're free to walk around!

    13, eh? You get a camera now and you'll end up getting insanely good, the earlier you start the better. Never heard of the Lithograph place, had a quick look here and looks fantastic, cheers for the heads up!

    I know quite young isn't it!

    I like photography and urban exploration so i thought i would get a DSLR and take some photos.
    The last report i did was with a Nikon l810 decent camera with good lighting but still quite crap.

    At first I read that as 'd810' and thought you were insane. If you can't get good images with one of those £2200 beast, you're screwed :D
    Yeah, bridge cameras reeeealy aren't a good choice for exploring. Tiny sensors and slow lenses, they don't suck enough light in.

    There's a couple of decent cameras for as low as £100, maybe within 'birthday present' range! CEX is my go-to place (the 2 year warranty is great), my mate recently got a Panasonic G3 from there for £100, and the Pentax K-r is a great DSLR for another tenner or so.

    I only used the l810 because i got it for Christmas about 3 years ago good camera for £100!

    I have been saving for a while and i am going to buy the nikon d3300 18-55mm VR kit lens.

    I also like CEX i got 2gb of ddr3 laptop ram for £2 cant fault that!
