Todays image is a first effort with my recent MP-E65 lens acquisition I’m afraid. Apologies if it mages your eyes go weird or gives you a headache.

This is a 3x magnification image of my laptop screen, that has been rotated and cropped.

This clearly shows the red, green and blue (RGB) elements […]

Another New Toy

I’ve been lusting over a macro set-up thats been for sale in the Weymouth branch of Wessex Photographic since before Christmas. The set-up consisted of a Canon MT-24EX twin flash and a MP-e65mm f/2.8 1-5x macro lens.

I finally gave in to temptation on Friday and treated myself to the MT-24EX as a birthday present, […]

Glitzy Threads

I’ve been getting into my macro work again recently, and thought that I’d try another macro one for today. Todays subject is an almost 1:1 shot of the silver threads in a Pashmina that my significant other owns.

Shot with my EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro and a Speedlite MT-24EX.

Roe Deer in Afternoon Sunlight

Today, a friend and myself travelled up to Cranborne and did a 10 mile walk around the surrounding area.

After failing to capture an image of a Brown Hare, a group of Roe Deer came running across the field towards us, having been disturbed by shooting by in nearby […]

The Road to God is Never Closed

This church in Weymouth quite often has witty signs outside to try and tempt new worshippers in, and given the traffic chaos that is Weymouth and the proximity of this church to the chaos that was the junction at the bottom of Boot […]

A Slightly Different View of Pulpit Rock

Today, as the weather decided to be nice, I thought that I’d venture down to Portland to take a few photos.

Something I’ve never really done is to have a good look around Pulpit Rock for an alternative to the view that you see reproduced again and […]

Pondering over the Puzzle

I have to admit that I was struggling for inspiration for todays image, until I opened the local rag. Its not exactly The Times crossword, but it served a purpose.

Image was lit using a single flash bounced off the ceiling.

Another Interview, Hurrah!

I’ve just had the news that I’ve got a second interview tomorrow, so fingers crossed that I get somewhere this time, as financially things are getting pretty tight and I’m actually considering auctioning off internal organs ;o)

Metal Drops

Todays image is a close-up of water droplets on a brushed steel pedal bin lit by natural light from a large net covered window.

An aperture of f/16 was chosen for maximum depth of field and minimum diffraction (which causes softening).

As the image was pretty much monochrome, it […]

Looking After The Pennies

Todays shot was inspired by something that I’m not very good at.

Taken using my Canon 100mm Macro lens and lit by a Speedlite 430EX bounced off a White Reflector positioned at a low angle to create some shadows and reveal the texture of the pennies.
