Share your world – 2nd February 2022

Bit of a mixed bag this week, on a high night today is my 31st Wedding anniversary…that’s quite an achievement, right? Sadly we also said goodbye to our dog, Chloe. She was with us for nearly 16 years. She was mostly blind, deaf, had heart problems, kidneys were giving out, but in the end, she…

We recently managed to spend a long weekend with my daughter in Ipswich (Queensland). Due to Covid I have not been able to get to her house in Ipswich. She move in Dec 2019 and we were going to visit in Feb 2020…but you all know what happened. So I have not seen her newly…

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.…

Monday’s Musings…

Well week two of lockdown and honestly, I think it may stretch into three! I had my first Covid jab last week and spent three days feeling ‘blah’ one of the common side affects with my friends who pretty much all had their shot last week was feeling ‘heavy’ almost like wading through water. Of…

Mothers Day flowers – Red Tulips

Every year my daughters buy me flowers for Mother’s Day, but the last few years they have made sure they have been quite photogenic ones. They are not fancy or expensive, but the fact that they think about what I might also like to photograph is especially nice. I also had a little help in…

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…
