I've tried a few lowkey portraits before now, this is probably the best half body shot I've done in this style. I used the camera settings to get rid of all the light in the room then added the flash to light the model.
Big thanks to Darren & Joel who both modeled for me.
in the form of new toys! Had a little more fun using off camera flash, similar set up as my "Two Girls One Cup" shot, only main difference is the use of daylight as a backlight in this image which casts a nice rim light on my shoulders.
It looked so good I had to photograph it!
See my images slightly larger on my Flickr page
This shot is one I've been meaning to try for a while. I fired my flash gun through my umbrella to get a slightly diffused light. I'm hoping to do a series of similar shots, some indoors like this one and some on street locations using street/car lights in the background. I'm pleased with this shot attempt, I only took 10 shots to get the one I wanted - miracle!
Big thanks to Jordan for being my model.
Spring is official here, there are lots of flowers and blossom popping all over the place waiting to be photographed!
I have photographed this cathedral a few times from outside but this is the first time I have ventured in. There was so much detail within the cathedral, I would love to photograph a wedding there one day!
This wasn't a planned photograph! I had a visit from a friend today who brought along a tarantula and two skins for me to photograph up close. This image was taken from a skin of a Mexican Red Knee (
I know, another late blog - I make time to take the shot then take my time to get to the computer for the edit and upload!
For this days shot I wanted to try a low key product shot. My models, are my Adidas Copa Mudial football boots. These iconic football boots have been produced for almost 30 years, and I wouldn't buy anything else! The capture was taken in a room with low light, so I was able to use the flash gun to light the boots without any other light effecting the shot.
Another great example of how we use our mobile phones to capture life. A simple 5min edit and frame has transformed this image.

A busy day today, so I've had to do a quick portrait of Sir Snoop!. Sun coming in through the blinds has turned him into a zebra dog!!!
