Year Two (107) - High Key animal portraits on location!

I have just got myself a great new hi-lite box which enables me to create a fantastic studio hi key background in a very minimal space, so I have a portable studio I can take pretty much anywhere, and create amazing hi key images. My challenge…

Day 354 - Photo Buddy's Model Mayhem

My photo buddy got to be in the lime light during the study session, with a variety of flash and strobe lights the idea was to capture the essence of 1 year old Sparky. One on the things I wanted to do was to capture him in action... this is…

I have been out on a few walks recently trying to capture Bluebells as they are just coming into flower in some pockets of the New Forest National Park, and I love them - rather than posting each time I photograph the bluebells my plan was to…

Day 81- A Forest Walk
