In the studio with Emily

I am sure some of you are getting a bit bored of the roses? So I thought I’d post some images I recently took in the studio with Emily. It was another of our ‘play’ dates where we tried a few different things. I had this whole Emily in Paris thing happening (I had just…

In the studio with Emily Pt 4

I have this fabulous bright red backdrop, which I ordered for a workshop that is running soon but got postponed so many times it’s not funny. Anywhooooo, I have been dying to use it on SOMETHING and when Em said she was coming over I quickly grabbed two outfits (black and white) and threw this…

In the studio with Emily Pt 3

Changed the background and the outfit again, found this gorgeous dress in the studio closet, never even been worn…so pretty. And Dexter, of course, just had to be in shot. We thought it would be cute to get him to give Emily a flower. It took about 5 minutes to teach him to grab the…

In the studio with Emily Pt 2

Still in the studio with Emily, this time we changed out the background for this gorgeous blue panelled wall by Kate Backdrops and this blue Medieval style dress and Celtic headpiece by Verdessa Fairy. We even colour coordinated the blue book! Only three images, but so lovely and painterly ~ Julz

In the studio with Emily Pt 1

After a long lockdown, it felt good to be able to catch up with family and friends, but also so good to be able to shoot portraits in the studio again. Luckily I got to do both at once when Emily came for a visit. The dogs were super happy to see her too. Due…

But when you’re…

Dexter in the studio with Velvet 56

I’m sure you all know by now how much Dexter just adores being in the studio…he has his favourite chair (or two) and once that bowtie goes on he knows it’s action time. Well I wanted to play with the new Lensbaby Velvet 56, he really is my only willing participant as far as model…

Playing in the studio with lights

I recently spent a cold wet afternoon in the studio with Hubby and the dogs, he had agreed to sit for me so I could play with some different lighting effects. Mostly it was for a series of articles I wrote for Photofocus.com. I won’t go into all the specifics, you can read the article…

A little touch of spring

My daughter received this bunch of flowers for her birthday. Funny thing is she doesn’t really like cut flowers that much, they just die…so sad. She does however enjoy handing them to me, so I can capture them forever. Shooting with my Sony a7R3 and the 28-75mm lens I shot on a tripod anywhere from…

It’s nearly Spring

I actually left the house, last week and spotted some of the Prunus trees were already in bloom. I had to grab some smaller branches or twiglets (?) and take them home to shoot. I decided to set up three different looks. I set up my black seamless background, placed a black stool. I also…
