Perfecting the capture of a water droplet collision inside a bubble!
This water droplet broke through the bubble and bounced out again – as a Worthington spout – without bursting the bubble!
Not a top image – but a new twist to work on!
Another Red Kite image taken in the Brecon Beacons.
Here the bird is transferring its ‘catch’ from its claws to its beak!
These birds are truly beautiful!
Taken in the Brecon Beacons on Friday last – Nikon D800 with 70-300mm lens.
A re-run of an old idea, taken for a ‘Still Life’ challenge at my photography club.
Much like ‘Head Music’, setting the piece up was the easy bit.
Getting the lighting right took me several attempts.
The final set up involved four strobe units, wirelessly synchronised and triggered.
A ‘marmite’ shot for sure: you’ll either love it – or hate it!
Another studio setup, this time a tulip past its best – and then post-processed in Lightroom and Photoshop.
A studio exercise in lighting.
Three strobes on the white background and one, through a softbox, on the Pussy Willow.
Taken today at the Roding Valley Nature Reserve close to Epping Forest.
I’ve tried many times to photograph these beautiful birds, but today – thanks to a 300mm lens and 1.4x teleconvertor on my D800 – and with some judicious cropping – I managed to get close enough.
Came across this little chap (?) ferreting around the loose stones on the side of a country lane near Purleigh in Essex.
He would have fitted quite comfortably in the palm of my hand ( with room to spare ) and was kind enough to stay around long enough for me to get a couple of shots.
I think that he’s a Long Tailed Field Mouse, but as always, I’m willing to be corrected.
A project this month at my Camera Club ( www.hspg.smugmug.com ) was to produce a self-portrait. I chose to go anonymous – and this was the result.
