Layered Rock and Timber

I have not one but two series for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge – Layers. Firstly this old timber bridge I photographed last weekend, so many intricate layers of timber to make this exquisite (yet falling down) railway bridge. Next is the amazing layers in these rock formations, found in Heathcote, Victoria (AUS). Make primarily…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Waiting

This Week’s WPC is waiting…Waiting for Prince Charming? I was trying to find a great photo of my dogs waiting by the front door or something and then I came across these images from a Snow White shoot I did a little while back. “Do I eat the apple or not” she says to herself. …

Weekly Photo Challenge – Structure

These week’s WPC Theme is Structure and we are asked to delve deeper into structures unseen, or at least unnoticed. I like to photograph things like fruit, right up close to observe the structure and shape and texture. I often shoot with intense dramatic shadow to highlight these features even further, I will even cut them…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Corner

So many ways to interpret this week’s WPC theme; Corners. I could have used the proverbial: backed into a corner, or turning the corner. I decided to go literal and just picked a random bunch of things with corners, mostly buildings. And of course, mostly run down or old buildings, can’t say I’m a fan…

However, when I look through my images two things stand out, animals and…

Photography is a primarily visual medium, but we can experience it with more than one sense. This week, focus on the tactile element of the objects you shoot, whether it’s one distinct quality — softness, smoothness, graininess, or any other texture you find interesting — or a combination of several within one frame. Photography is…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Satisfaction

I get a lot of satisfaction from seeing one of my conceptual portraits move from my imagination to a finished image on my computer. I spent hours, days, weeks even arranging and sourcing the right model, the props, how I want it poses, lit and so one, and that all pretty much happens in my…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Unusual

This week we are asked to post an unusual photo, something unusual to us or a technique, this is a hard call when my of my art is pretty unusual. But I do suppose this one from last Summer was one out of the box I did this awesome Milk Bath Shoot with Rachelle James.…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Collage

This week’s WPC calls for a collage, me being the Photoshop nerd and self-proclaimed guru, I went for a Photoshop collage of bits and pieces of old style ephemera. I love working with these old style collage, a bit from her a bit from there, scanned in bits of old paper and digitally created a whole new…
