Macro for beginners workshop

I recently ran a Macro for beginners workshop, it is the first time I have run a total beginners workshop, I have run other macro workshops, but people had been requested a back to basics, start from the beginning. So I did. We covered so many technical aspects of cameras and macro photography; exposure triangles,…

McDowall Street Art

Near where my Daughter currently lives, we pass by some street art, every time we seemed to go anywhere, it is under a bridge and not exactly easy to get to, but we finally decided it was time we had a closer look. Finally found somewhere nearby to park and crossed the slipway at a…

Spring florals

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.
