Regular Random – Red, Red Roses

I recently bought some red roses and used them for several things, including a workshop. They were just so beautiful I had to do a quick 5 minutes on the white perspex, for some added simplicity… Shot on Sony a7ii on either ISO 50 or 100, 30mm F/5.0, shot with a Strobe on white perspex,…

Out of the Studio – Smoke and Mirrors

Moth and I recently spent the day experimenting and playing with the cameras, some shiny reflective things, some matches and things around the house.

Fabulous Friday

No flowers today, but how fabulous are these? Some sticks and seedpods I found in the studio, completely forgot I had them hidden away. Set them up on some white perspex and a studio light…voila! I love the textural elements and the interesting shadows. Stark almost black and white feel to the images, even though…
