David's sketches for the preliminary discussion about the V5 ePHOTOzine home page redesign. I decided to shoot it at a jaunty angle and then use my cross processing preset in Lightroom. We covered a lot of ground in the meeting and work will go ahead on it in a few weeks. This photo is par...

Photo365 - 53 - Bright Ideas

As I was taking a photo of a flower in a vase using this bulb as illumination to create a deep shadow I suddenly thought...here's an idea I've always wanted to do and never got round to it. An illuminating light bulb. So I had a go. I may do it again when I have a free evening so I can set up the...

Photo365 - 52 - An apple a day

Many of my Photo365 project pictures are still lifes taken at home...it's starting to make me realise I don't get out and about enough. This is down to the monster I've created in ePHOTOzine - it consumes most of my time. So a quick snap here and there is usually all I am getting chance to do. That ...

I went out round Sheffield this afternoon photographing old derelict industry buildings around Shalesmoor / Kelham Island. I decided at the beginning of the year to build up a collection of old historic buildings before they're knocked down/ converted into flats. While I was out I spotted this aband...

I started off taking photos of glow stick patterns, and then I added a Biro to see how much light they projected, this then turned into the main focus of my photo. To make things more visually interesting I switched the Biro for an ink pen. A glow stick was placed at each side of the nib and just ...

Photo365 - 49 - music night

Had a recording session with Sound of Flak this evening so I thought I'd do one of my abstract instrument shots. This is of the Roland V-Synth with the Apple Mac in the background. It's processed using Lightroom to get the cool effect.

Photo365 - 48 - lamp

This was taken as a quick grab shot before a meeting today. I used a small Fuji point & shoot compact. And used Lightroom to add grain and tone give it a Victorian postcard feel.

I used to go to the East Coast for my family holidays as child, Skipsea to be precise. It was a great location for finding fossils as the coastline suffered badly from erosion each year. I remember finding lots of interesting fossils on walks with my mother. Last year I returned and the road our...

Photo365 - 46 - Window

It's been raining all day and making those small pattering sounds on the window. So here's my window looking out. Focus is on the reflections of the background tree in the drops. A wide aperture was used to make the tree branches totally out of focus and abstract in look.

Photo365 - 45 - Cookie

As it's Valentine's Day I have taken a still life of a cookie for my daily Photo365 Project. I used a torch to illuminate the cookie and give it a warm glow. It was placed on a wooden bread board.

Photo365 - 44 - Snowdrop

It's that time of year when the snowdrops poke through the still hardened soil. I like these first signs of spring. I have a few in the garden...when I say few it's just that..three clumps of two or three flowers on each. So choosing the right one didn't take much time, but also didn't give me much ...

Well I wasn't actually chasing a rainbow, I was after a sunset, but once again it failed to materialise on one of the edges in Derbyshire. This evening I went on Stanage Edge, and saw some spectacular light, stormy weather, sunbursts, dramatic clouds and this rainbow. I just had the Olympus...

Photo365 - 42 - Teppanyaki

One of my best friends invited me out for a meal with them this evening...it was hard to refuse. A night at the jimja tree in Bawtry. This is an oriental restaurant mainly Japanese, with several areas to sit around and be cooked to! The chef prepares the food and cooks it in front of you..and perf...

A bubble blown through the rear end of a bottle cleaner using Fairy Liquid. It was the photographed with a macro lens and cropped further in Lightroom. The lighting was a single studio light with softbox attached.

Photo365 - 40 - Chilli Mints

I couldn't believe it when I saw the word Chilli on a packet of extra strong mints, but closer inspection proved my eyes weren't deceiving me. Yes, as if extra strong mints weren't hot enough, they've added red chilli to the mix. I had to try some. You get the usual enjoyable hot mint with a underly...
