Still Life – pink roses and tea cups

Just randomly playing with some beautiful pink roses and gypsophilum in the studio. Played with my 28-75mm lens and aperture from f/2.8 – f/5.0. Soft natural light. Soft cheesecloth (pink and cream), my chippy table and an old chippy stool, as well as the cute little teacup and saucer and my favourite bonsai scissors. I…

Tea & Roses

Just a simple one today, some of the gorgeous (not quite) white roses sent to me recently, I took a number of different still lifes with them and I am still going… So pretty and so soft, the colour is not quite white, has just a hint of blush to them. ~ Julz

More Pink Roses

I really did try to make the most of my pretty pink roses, I shot them several times, over several days. Even if initially my camera was only on a tripod, it was great to be shooting and editing again. I received these from a friend, who had borrowed some studio equipment, isn’t that nice…

Playing with something a little different

Kindness of Friends

Even in these trying times, there is still kindness to be found. I recently received this beautiful bunch of pink roses from some friends, after they had borrowed my smoke machine. It was such perfect timing, as I had been playing with my hydrangeas and was in the mood for more subjects to shoot. Trust…

Monday’s Musings…

Do you know how often I sit and stare at the screen and have no idea what to write? I am sure I am not alone, does this happen to you too? It’s been a good week, but not really much to talk about. I did get out with the camera for a few mini…

Summer Outings – Last of the Spring roses

I recently visited Mont De Lancey Historic Homestead, in Wandin for a private Christmas luncheon. Apart from the fun and frivolity of our affair, there was also time to wander the grounds with our cameras. I adore the Rose garden, so pretty. Sadly severe hot and windy weather the other week had taken its toll,…

Pink Roses in macro

I showed some images the other day with these pink roses after I had taught a macro class, but I also took these images too. With waterdrops and much closer than the previous shots. These were shot with my new Neweer 660 LED Lights. These are proving invaluable in the studio. Must write a review…
