In the studio – Some product photography

It’s been a while since I did any real commercial styled product photography, lots of still life, lots of food and lately loads of portraits, but not much actual product photography. I was recently asked to run a class on just that, here are some images from the prep beforehand… ~ Julz

Mondays Musings…

I keep telling myself eight more days of work, just eight days! Then I an on holidays for nearly three weeks! The weather has been improving, although we are in for a scorcher today, 37°C expected today. Had a super fabulous weekend, with a slight crimp in it…my dishwasher died. It was old so I…

In the studio – Apricot Ranunculus

What do they say “it never rains, but it pours” about suddenly getting an overabundance of something you wish for?  Not only did I find the orange ranunculus, but then someone brought me some apricot ones, so back into the studio to capture these in all their glory too, such soft subtle colour. ~ Julz

Mondays Musings…

Still struggling with my back, I went back to the Doctor who has agreed there might be more going on than original thought so I am off for a round of CT Scans, bloods, X-Rays and such…not much fun, but hopefully, it’s treatable. Meanwhile lots of wine (for medicinal reasons) and pain killers for me.…

In the studio – Orange Ranunculus

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. Getting something soft and dreamy, but…

Monday Musings…

I sadly had my back go on me again, so spent most of the week and weekend crippled and not doing a lot. Massages have helped dramatically. I have been perhaps spending too much time on the PC, but edits, writing articles and other commitments have kept me there, I know I should get up…

Light Painting – Seashells

I often encourage my students to bring some personal items to my workshops, it gives them something unique to work with (other than my stuff) and there is usually a story behind every object. These seashells were part of a set this student’s parents collected, apparently, it is quite the collection. I could not help…
