Light Painting – Scales and Tangelos

Last Light Painting image for a little bit, I have bought some new items to photograph, but just have not had the time to relax and spend some time playing in the studio as I would like. These last few were quickies (all less than 30 seconds) and taken to double-check setups for a workshop.…

Light Painting – Seashells

I often encourage my students to bring some personal items to my workshops, it gives them something unique to work with (other than my stuff) and there is usually a story behind every object. These seashells were part of a set this student’s parents collected, apparently, it is quite the collection. I could not help…

Light painting – Ranunculus

I have not had much of an opportunity to photograph ranunculus before, it is not something we don’t seem to see locally very often, but I spotted these bright orange gems and had to have them. I used them for a Light Painting session and then a Light Painting class, I then also did some…

Winter Wonderland

There is a story behind this image (isn’t there always?) but I thought I might share this one. I had this fabulous idea of pointing a coloured torch at the crystal ball Jess was holding, Desley was shooting and the colour spectrum she was getting in her shots was amazing…I was so excited to try.…

The Ice Queen

The Ice Queen cometh. I mean what can I say, I actually did so very little to the image, it really was quite amazing, the white eyes were contacts worn by Jess, creepy, so I highlighted them I created a dark vignette and added snow…it seemed to ‘need’ snow. The twigs were there in the…

She walks among us

As the new day dawns, The Ice Queen, returns to walk among us, the stuff of legends It was fantastic to get back into the studio with Jess, but just as good to be inspired to create a few great pieces for the Winter Wonderland collection. These days I don’t create for the sake of…

She walks with wolves

She walks amongst wolves. The Ice Queen from the North. Wind and wolves howl as the snow flurries and the briefest of sunlight wanes, as she disappears into the night and legend. This is just one of the pieces of digital art I created from the Winter Wonderland shoot I did recently in the studio…
