In the studio – a little vintage love

I bought this vase, pearls and such for our Gatsby shoot a few weeks ago, so sad that it was still just sitting there. There have been no other shoots. Before I packed it all away I thought I might do a little vintage love and some light painting. That vase and the pearls were…

An Eggcellent idea…

It’s funny, while so many people are complaining about how bored they are at the moment stuck at home, I have never been busier. Granted to was too busy sulking for the first couple of weeks about the unfairness of it all (my surgery got cancelled), I can’t shoot, can’t run workshops, can’t have dinners…

Light Painting – Grapes and scales

I am going to feature some new Light Painting images I have created lately. I recently ran a workshop and taught this technique and managed to capture a few images before and after the workshop. I really like the grapes, the colour the texture, so I managed to capture a few different images with them,…

Light Painting – Disbuds

I can’t believe my disbuds are still going, I featured them a few times in posts and even called them fading flowers last week…and they are still going strong. I adore just the two of them (the rest are long gone) in this beautiful little still life which I light painted. The aim of a…

Summer Outings – Light Painting at Lilydale Lake

Last Thursday evening we packed up the car and drove out to Lilydale Lake (about 45mins away) for a wonderful evening of Light Painting. Ir had been quite a warm and humid day and continued to be a balmy Summer evening. It turned out there were about 50 photographers there that night, which IMHO is…

Spring Outings – Lilydale Lake

A change of pace from some Silo Art for today. Several months ago, we were invited to attend an evening of Light Painting with a different photography group (than we usually do things with). The day had been fairly cold, and wet and stormy, thankfully it cleared up late in the afternoon. We still had…

Light Painting – Scales and Tangelos

Last Light Painting image for a little bit, I have bought some new items to photograph, but just have not had the time to relax and spend some time playing in the studio as I would like. These last few were quickies (all less than 30 seconds) and taken to double-check setups for a workshop.…

Light Painting – Seashells

I often encourage my students to bring some personal items to my workshops, it gives them something unique to work with (other than my stuff) and there is usually a story behind every object. These seashells were part of a set this student’s parents collected, apparently, it is quite the collection. I could not help…

Light painting – Ranunculus

I have not had much of an opportunity to photograph ranunculus before, it is not something we don’t seem to see locally very often, but I spotted these bright orange gems and had to have them. I used them for a Light Painting session and then a Light Painting class, I then also did some…

Light Painting – Figs

I love being about to mix my love of food photography and light painting, these figs and my wooden corbel at just so beautifully matched, along with my favourite Tyvek backdrop and my chippy timber table. I have been getting a LOT of lovely comments on social media…I adore it when things just WORK! Figs…
