In the studio – Still Life

I really am enjoying the rich deep tones of my new door, and wanted to capture some more pretty still life. All of these captured with lovely soft afternoon natural side light (from camera left) ~ Julz

In the studio – new door

I have been on the lookout for some time for a few vintage props; tin tile, sash window pane and a door of a manageable size and all at a manageable price. I recently visited yet another renovators warehouse and hoped to find a few treasures to come home. While I did find some treasures,…

I mentioned previously I had bought these great orange ranunculus flowers and had done some light painting with them, but I could not resist some pretty still life as well.  As they kept quite well (in a bucket of water) I shot these several times over a few days.

Helping Hand – Gerbera

This is the last of the current creations for my Helping Hands series, and I do adore this one, the perfectly imperfect gerbera, the pop of colour, the fingers look so delicate. It took quite a while to get the balance just right on this one, but I was persistent and it paid off. The…
