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…

Dogs in the studio – again

With an ongoing Covid Lockdown, again…it seems my only willing and available model is Dexter. He is actually getting really quite good and is really learning his craft. I know many will think it is staged, but it’s not. I set up this still life/ lifestyle scene for a shoot and young Mr. Dexter ever…

Tea with friends

I was recently setting up some still life in the studio, the dogs were with me, as per usual. This was my scene below. I barely snapped the scene above and Dexter just happened to pop up on the chair, far more interested in the chocolate chip muffins (which he didn’t get) than anything else.…

Share your world – 8th June 2021

It’s been a fairly quiet week, we’re in week two of lockdown no.4. Frustrating to say the least. I guess we all know the drill right? It’s OK I have been keeping quite busy. I ran a 7-day long boot camp for creatives, which was loads of fun and now I am putting together a…

Autumn Outings – Healesville Sanctuary

Nothing beats getting out and enjoying the sunshine and fresh air in Autumn, my favourite time of year. We recently headed out to Healesville Sanctuary with our eldest daughter to enjoy some time with some quirky Aussie animals. That’s all they house here, Aussie natives. Great down out with the camera and family. Really not…

Monday’s Musings…

Wow, I lost a morning in there somewhere. So I am running a bit late, with this post. No stress. I had a mentoring session with another photographer, which was kind of interesting. Sharing some ideas and inspiring someone else. Explaining how and why I do things that way I do. We had a fabulous…

Mondays Musings…

Oh wow, such a week…have been a little busy with shoots and then BAM! Hubby ends up in hospital with a perforation in his large intestine & bowel. Scary stuff. My Mum went through that a few years ago, but really bad. Hubby isn’t quite that bad. So far no surgery, just antibiotics and fluids,…

Dog Day Afternoon

What does that mean anyway, apart from the obvious? So post Christmas we took Chloe and Dexter and their friend Harvey to a new Dog Park. I had scoped it out on a few trips to Gunns Road Reserve and Frog Hollows. Lovely and big and totally fenced in, lovely grassy areas and trees. There…
