Now as you may have noticed I have never been one for taking people pictures, the world of landscapes and postcard pretty images is where I feel most comfortable. But just lately the opportunity arose for for me to get out and about with fellow photographers from my club with some models. The event was called 'Trash the Dress' where we had models in wedding attire and photographed them in unusual locations. It was great fun, so much so I recently did a second one. Lighting and exposure was definitely a challenge not to mention the endless editing and re-touching, but so worth it, I learned so much and if you do get the chance to expand your horizons and sneak out of your comfort zone I would strongly recommend it! Top tip: Buy yourself a reflector, they don't cost much and they make a world of difference.

Oil and Water

A flickr contact of mine recently posted some cracking shots created with a little bit of cooking oil and some water. He had followed a tutorial on You Tube by a very talented chap called Brian Peterson. The process is so simple and so easy to do and the results make such a fun and colourful abstracts. Here's one of my results. If you want to give it try yourself why not check out Brian's tutorial.

A Right Royal Photo

It's been ages since I updated this blog, apologies for that. There just doesn't seem enough hours in the day!

Just thought I would share a little bit of exciting news. One of my recent images from Stonehurst Cove in Nova Scotia has just been chosen by Canda Post to be featured in a book they are putting together to present to the newly wed Wills and Kate on their upcoming Canadian tour. I was of course thrilled at knowing that my image will be sitting on a Royal coffee table in the near future :o)
