Under Pressure

My Hubby often brings home bits and pieces of gauges and things from work, a little while ago I saw them in a whole new light, he brought me this one recently and I felt it worked beautifully with my wooden hand. I jokingly called this piece “Under Pressure” as there is obviously NO PRESSURE, I…

Pinnochio’s Apple

I recently purchased this wooden modelling arm, I think it is aimed at people who paint or draw still life, but I decided to use it to create still life. I really wanted to create a series, of this hand holding everyday objects, like this apple. It is a piece of light painting, but it…

Capturing the details

I recently had my friend Lisa come over to play and experiment in the studio, always a fun day, some days we have no idea of what we are doing and other days it is totally planned out. This day was planned, we had previously tried to shoot some flowers on a homemade lightbox, which…

Light painting – still life with pears

I recently ran a light painting workshop, the pears and scales are often a favourite, among the students. I used different pears this time, I also have a new (to me) vintage rolling pin and some new linen. As you can see no two images turn out quite the same, the top one is much…

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…

Little boxes

I found these little boxes recently on a shopping trip, or should that be hunting trip lol. They are reclaimed wood from other boxes, old pallets, etc I loved the aged patina, I feel the stencilling is possibly new, but I like that too. I found the rusty love heart (in the top box) at…
