I’m a little teapot…

I picked up this ceramic teapot months ago and have shot with it several times, I adore the colour and texture, so rustic. This was a very quick light painting, it was more a light aiming? trying something different. ~ Julz,

It’s not every day you get to meet your hero…

Many, many years ago I picked up a camera, no secret there. At first, I wanted to learn to shoot beautiful landscapes and waterfalls…and I did. But it was never enough. There was something missing. I stumbled across a young artist by the name of Brooke Shaden, her work set my mind on fire, like…

Regular Random – Playing with Prisms

I love experimenting with light in my photography, but up until recently, I have never really played with prisms, adding another element to my macro photography. I had a friend let me have a brief play with them on a recent trip to The Butterfly House, at Melbourne Zoo. Rather strange, but pleasing results, in…

Light painting – still life with pears

I recently ran a light painting workshop, the pears and scales are often a favourite, among the students. I used different pears this time, I also have a new (to me) vintage rolling pin and some new linen. As you can see no two images turn out quite the same, the top one is much…

Shakespeare…

I really cannot decide what to title this piece, something about it screamed Romeo and Juliet, but technically crowns were not really involved, my Mother suggested King Lear, but I am not a fan, perhaps Ophelia? Shakespeare is on the spine, so something to do with one of his tales, maybe even a Mid Summer…

On Sunday I had a Conceptual Portrait shoot with Jess and Emma, this is just one of the many images taken, I gave it a little Photoshop Magic…it was shot with a slightly swaying Edison Bulb I created several pieces of digital art from this shoot, as well as some beautiful images of course. Will…

Monday’s musings…

Why is it Monday’s seem to come around so quickly? Friday was spent putting the finishing touches on an online class, shooting, video, edit, repeat and then a bit of chilax, it had been a bit of an emotional week…nothing I really want to get into, but sometimes you just need some me time! Somethings…

In the Studio – Wine & Cheese #2

Yesterday I featured the studio shot I created while spending a few hours in the studio with Hubby the other day. He had an idea for a Still Life image (not his usual genre) for some wine and cheese…he just needed my creative touch…this was the ‘after’ shot. This was created in the dark with…
