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…

Fading flowers in fading light – Disbuds

These disbuds were travelling along really nicely, I had used them in a shoot last week, then again in a workshop last weekend. This week had been crazy with ‘life stuff’ and they were left in a bucket of water just outside the studio door. Many of them were well past their prime, but these…

Three Muses

Recently I invited three ladies (two I had never worked with before) into the studio for two Conceptual images. Initially, I had this whole concept shot in mind, I am still working with it in Photoshop, but on a spur of the moment, I decided to lay all three women on the floor and drape…
