Floating Fruit Workshop

My CPV Photography group holds lots of workshops, I am sometimes the teacher, some times the student…this day I was the student. Now the premise of floating fruit is actually quite easy, the actual act of creation is harder than it looks. These are the finished images We used black and white acrylic but decided…

Monday’s Musings…

Such a mixed bag this week, I have spent quite a bit of time creating recipes and photographing the results, some wonderful, some not so great; ie my lactose-free, egg-free pannacotta did not set well and pretty much collapsed when taken out of the moulds…still tasted yummy and we ate all of it, but did…

Regular Random – Cupcakes???

Speakeasy/ Gansta shoot in the studio

Every now and then I get invited to work on a big collaborative shoot with other photographers, The Addams Family Wedding was one such venture. They usually involve lots of people and something fairly elaborate. This was no exception, my VPC camera group was running not just one, but I think it is maybe four…

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…

Mondays Musings…

Another busy weekend, Hubby and I took the camera in to get the sensors cleaned before our next trip away, while we were waiting we went and saw the new Lion King movie; loved it. Fabulous and the detail was amazing. If you have not seen it yet, do. Ignore the critics who usually can’t…

Regular Random – King White Protea

So last week I featured my King White protea with the fractal prism filters, but I also took some lovely photos, without and I thought I would share those this week. This plant is a rambling bush (well it is in my garden – I have several), with the most enormous cream coloured flowers. They…

Cooking up a storm

I have been cooking up a storm recently and loving every minute of it, the other week it was cakes and desserts, this time totally tomato related; bruschetta, cherry tomato and chorizo penne, avocado on toast (with blistered tomatoes), and so much more. Did you know I post the recipes on my ‘other’ blog? If…
