Creative absence.

Those of you that follow my gallery submissions ( or even both of you ! ) may have noticed a recent drought. I have not been uploading photos as frequently as I would have liked. The truth is that i have been busy on another project related to Photography ( but coming out of ePhotozine.) Some tim...

Desperately seeking style

It has been an unusual year for me. I have really moved towards digital art, sometimes to the extent that i felt I had to upload the odd "real" photo just to remind myself and others that I can still shoot a decent image. Otherwise it has been a case of trying to master new techniques and ...

Old Masters

Those of you who have viewed my entries onto this blog will have gained the impression that I love anything new and digital. That is true, but I also have a soft spot for some things much older. In terms of images I like things going back to the days well before photography was even dreamed of - let...

A New Style

This year i have concentrated on trying to move into more abstract images. often they have been so abstract and digitally manipulated that no one has been able to work out what image was beneath all the layers. It has been fun. I have enjoyed every minute. I have begun to feel a little afraid that I...

The Church Across the Road

I live in a village. Well more of a commuter base for Cardiff than a proper village if I am honest. It straddles the main A48 trunk road. It is probably most easily recognised because of its three pubs, but there is also an old church on the main road, right across from my house. When i saw that th...

Contrasts

Back to my project 52. The latest theme was "contrasts". Should have been easy, but with the weather over the last week this turned out, surprisingly to be hard to get anything. In the end I had to resort to adding elements of contrast in the studio - my computer studio that it. The fir...

A Versatile Flower

Sunday Night and nothing on TV ( again ! ) What is a man to do ? Well obviously he gets he computer fired up and opens up an image of a flower - don't we all ????? ;) I opened a fairly straightforward image I had taken of a flower some time ago. Then I created a few droplets of water using a sph...

Black

This week was still life as a theme in my project 52. I was busy during the week but managed to find time on saturday to go to the local market/ boot sale to browse around for some things to include in a still life. I came away with nothing. Somehow extension leads and electric hedge trimmers didn't...

Spider's Web

Today I posted an image onto the gallery. It was part of last week's Project 52 task, where the theme was abstract. I called it spider's web. There were a few images in this series, all based on an initial starting image ( the task I set myself ) I was asked in a comment on that photo how I had crea...

Project 52

Well it is the end of the week for another of my project 52 challenges. This time the topic was Abstract and I have to say i really enjoyed this one. many of my images started with a shot I took of looking up at the corner of a typical city glass office building. I wanted to get some nice pattern...

Coldplay - The Sequel

A lot of people have looked at my recent blog entry on here about the video I created as a backdrop to a remix of the Coldplay song "Viva Lad Vida". I thought it would maybe be a good idea to put some meat ( no horsemeat DNA in sight.) on the skeleton of an explanation about the Video. In ...

The Coldplay Video

I have just produced a Coldplay Video. Well to be totally honest i have just made a video of a remix I have done of Viva La Vida by Coldplay and set it to a video of abstract images that I created especially for the task. I plan to put this video on the Creative Photography community website Let ...

The Door to Success

"Doors". Not the most obviously stimulating topic for photography. Sometimes, though the topics that seem mundane are the ones that push you a little. In order to make the mundane something meaningful the photographer has to try harder to make an image that is memorable. Well, "doo...

Not a good Week

This week has been not a good one. That is I have found taking appropriate images for my Project 52 challenge a real problem. The topic is slow shutter speeds, but I couldn't get my imagination flowing to do much with this. i know a lot of things i have done in the past - like flowing water and race...

Whose Photo is it anyway ?

I have a question in this blog entry. It concerns, for example, this image. The texture is borrowed. I had no hand in its creation at all. The photographs of the miner were mine, but the statue itself was, of course, nothing to do with me. Even the mask used was free from a CD on a photo mag...
