Monday’s Musings…

Sadly I am moving into my third week with this cold thing, can’t seem to shake it and Docs aren’t helping much, so I have not been doing much. I am trying to stay away from people as much as possible, sometimes I just can’t avoid being in the same space, but no hugging, no…

The Kodak Brownie

Something that seems to pop up from time to time in my Light Painting and still life photos is my vintage green vase and dried hydrangea and my Kodak Box Brownie, I adore them both; the colours, the textures so why not put both in the same image? I must admit my poor hydrangea has…

A little vintage in the studio

So I recently went on a Vintage/Op Shop (Thrift store) hunt with another photographer friend, purely meant as a scouting trip for an outing for one of my Facebook Groups, a Mystery Shopping Spree. Scouting went out the window in several shops and I came home with some lovely new treasures, many of which I…

In the studio – wine & cheese #1

I recently spent some time in the studio with Hubby, while still life is not his chosen genre (he likes landscapes and long exposures, astro and such), he wanted to create a still life type image with wine and cheese, just needed my help with staging and styling. We actually went all out on this…

Tuesday’s Textures

I took some simple cosmos blooms, almost finish and I created these two lovely floral pieces, mostly hand painted over the top of the original photo. I adore getting to play with flowers like this with the Mixer Brush in Photoshop, along with a texture from my Paper Daisy Collection pack and some smoke brushes…

My chippy table…

I recently acquired a lovely little vintage chippy table, it wasn’t cheap, but it fits so perfectly in my little spot by the window, oh I love the aged, worn rustic feel of it. My one regret is that there are no drawers in the front…that would have been wonderful. Still, it looks amazing in…

Mondays Musings…

Yesterday was Mother’s Day in our part of the world, and possibly in many others as well. Long gone are the days of weak tea and burnt toast in bed with the kids, I was actually the first one out of bed, Hubby got the lay-in, although to be fair he did get up at…

Tuesday’s Textures – Newton’s Apple

I saw a similar image posted on Photoportrayal on IG, loved his version and wanted to do something similar, but of course, with my own spin on it…this was LOTS of fun doing this shoot…I love the play on the floating apple, or a falling apple, hence Newton’s Apple – gravity and such. Arhhhh! but…

Monday’s Musings…

Things have settled down again after my two extra long weekends in a row, sad but true. I spent the weekend either setting up for, running or recovering from two back to back workshops, it was exhausting, but so much fun…just not sure if I am game to try that again, but you watch I…
