    Day 185: Crab Spider

    This little fellow (and he was small, as youíll see if you skip forward a bit) was trucking across the floor of my home today. I relocated him to the sink to see just how close I could get, sticking a +3 dioptre on to the front of the lens, and ...

    Day 182: Snowdrops

    With the first signs of warmer weather now starting to appear, I decided to photograph some of the local flora. There was a large clump of these snowdrops just by the road outside Wentworth, apparently in their prime. Iíve cross-processed this s...

    Day 181: Starfish teeth

    Day 176: Pomander

    This was part of my fianceeís ensemble at her friendís wedding a couple of years ago. This is exactly the kind of thing we are having to consider now, so itís been brought out of storage for a closer inspection. I have to admit, for foam flowers...

    Day 175: Pepper

    Iíve been in the house on my lonesome today while my fiancee has toured South Yorkshire in pursuit of the perfect wedding dress (which I am told she has now found). As such, Iím raiding the fridge for subjects. If you are going to shoot close...

    Day 173: Natural grace

    Whilst my fiancee was trying on wedding dresses, I took a look around Sheffieldís Botanical Gardens. This young fern drew my eye, and I spent quite a while choosing the best combination of focal length, aperture and working distance to get the e...

    Day 157: The proof is in the printing

    The reason for yesterdayís run-around was this. I was approached after a display of my work and asked for a bespoke print of my shot from Day 144. I was quite excited about this for a number of reasons. First of all, Iíve only recently sourced a...

    Day 156: ďTry not. Do. Or do not. There is no tryĒ

    Weíve spent the day doing various shopping trips, part of which involved picking up some art supplies. On returning home, my fiancee surprised me by producing a book that Iíd been eyeing up in the store, which contains amongst other things a vas...

    Day 155: Gremlins

    When the weather forces you indoors, itís best to turn to studio work. I like to have a few models on standby, and this one works for tap water. No close up filters used for this, just the tamron 18-270 PZD and a couple of small flash units. ...

    Day 153: Hyperbole

    Todayís shot is brought to you courtesy of one of my other beloved wastes of time: origami. This is a favourite model of mine, which takes about half an hour to make and prevents a square sheet of paper from ever lying flat again. Every fold mad...

    Day 117: Dream state

    Itís been one of those days where nothingís quite felt real (lots to think about today). I thought that this may reflect that, and certainly distracted me for a while I concentrated on getting a shot with just a hint of movement. Nikon D300...

    Day 116: The season of giving

    And this season, someone gave me a cold! The next few uploads will be centred around my house so that I can preserve my health and hopefully make sure I donít have to miss any work. I gave my partner this ornament a couple of years ago (she...

    Day 95: Lava lamp

    Lava lamp Iíve been doing the finishing touches on the decorating I was doing last week, so Iíve stuck close to home today, as the weatherís been plotting against me again. Iíve had this lamp since I was seventeen. I think itís overdue fo...

    Day 89: Preparing for launch

    I was invited along to preview the new Honda Civic tonight, so I took the opportunity to take a few shots the highlight some of the model changes. At one point I was asked if I had enough light for that, bearing in mind that this was an after...

    Day 87: 'Tis the season

    Öcold season apparently. Iím feeling a bit bunged up myself, but I think thatís because Iíve been huffing paint fumes for the last two days. Living room looks great though! This was shot from the waist, with the aperture wide open and at the ...
