Today, I decided that I’d have a go at creating a physiogram, which is simply using a long exposure to record the trace of a swinging light source. Depending on how the light source is swung, the resulting image looke like something created using the Spirograph toy of the 1980s.

This is a […]

Daisy, Daisy

This is a 1:1 shot of a common daisy (Bellis perennis). I was after something simple today, and there were plenty of daisies on the lawn before someone took a mower to them.

This shot was taken using my Canon MP-E65mm f/2.8 1-5x macro lens set at about 1x and f/14. Shot […]

First attempt at night landscape photography.

As it was almost a full moon tonight, and the weather was wonderfully clear, I decided that I’d have a go at some photography by moonlight.

I re-read an article in a photo magazine and armed with a little knowledge headed down to Portland to have a go.

First subject was the classic view from […]

Today was a wet and miserable day, but it did give me the opportunity to grab an image of raindrops on some iris leaves.

This was shot at about 1:1 with my Canon EF 100mm Macro lens. I used natural light for this, as I didn’t like the twin specular highlights that I […]

By the Light of the Moon

Todays image is one of only two taken today, and my first attempt at shooting a scene lit by moonlight.

The moon was almost full, and so gave plenty of light, though the light cloud cover meant that it wasn’t as bright as I would have liked.

I […]

Whilst walking a section of the SW Coast Path along the Fleet today, we came across these two abandoned rowing boats that were in a poor state of repair.

The boats were filled with boulders (presumably to stop them from floating away) and a lot of dead eel grass that had washed in […]

Hurrah, a Job at Last

Hurrah, I got a call today from Wessex Photographic to tell me that I’d been successful in my job application, and that I start on Monday.

I’m chuffed to bits with that. Its not much money, but its better than the nothing I’ve been getting and its working in a camera shop, photography being one […]

A Spring Day at Kingston Lacy

As today was my birthday, and the weather was looking promising, I decided that we would have a day out at Kingston Lacy.

The weather was absolutely glorious, and warm, and although I know this is a bit of a picture postcard shot, it summarises the lovely day […]

The Passage of Time

The fact that its my birthday tomorrow gave me the inspiration for todays image.

This was a very simple shot to set up, just my favourite watch on a black velvet background and lit by a white fluorescent light in the kitchen. A long shutter speed was used to add […]

Afternoon at West Bay

It was such a beautiful day today that I just had to get out and about, so I decided to walk from Bridport to West Bay and back along the old railway track, which is now a bridleway and cyclepath.

By the time I got to West Bay, the light […]
