After a comment this morning by a work colleague I decided that I had to try to do a drop pic inside a lightbulb. Happily I just happened to have a bulb all ready emptied out and ready to use :) The problem of course with an enclosed space like this is that if your first drop isn't a success...

Oops - I was just about to switch off and head up to bed when I realised I'd not done my blog today! Actually there's nothing to report - not a great deal has been spent with the camera as I decided to get all domestic - foolish I know but sometimes it has to be done. I did have a splash pic...

I've been out all day again so it was a quick case of doing a few drops earlier this evening as I'd not picked up a camera all day. Any thoughts of taking a few pics from the bus window were thwarted do to the windows being absolutely filthy - there was no point. I have no plans to venture far o...

I'm still enjoying the SplashArt kit - no surprise there. Today I decided that I wanted to get a collision inside a bubble. I didn't do too badly - not great but acceptable for a first attempt - more will follow. However I thought I'd use this pic for my blog upload - I do rather like to see ...

Amazingly I didn't spend all evening playing with the splashes though admittedly a good chunk of time was spent messing about again. The main 'problem' is that I can leave it all set up 24 hours a day so it's there tempting me when I should be doing other stuff. Heck - the other stuff is only dome...

Will someone please tell me how to stop playing with this darned machine - it's flipping wonderful :) I really could do with a 2nd working flashgun though - I can see me having to spend some money again.............

Oddly enough I decided to play with the SplashArt kit again this evening. Sadly for some reason my slave flash has decided that it doesn't want to work so I was stuck with just the one. It was something of a nuisance but I struggled on - and will doubtless struggle on again tomorrow evening :) ...

Yep - too much time has been spent again playing with the SplashArt kit - it's addictive stuff you know :) Somewhere in this house is a box of gels for the flashguns but I can't find them so a bit of gaffer tape did the job with some hastily cut bits from my large sheets. The one flashgun takes an...

As the sun was out and the sky was blue I took myself off out for the day today. First Tewkesbury and then Gloucester. I bought a couple of items to add to my ever-growing prop collection and took a few snaps down at Gloucester Docks. I've done both Tewkesbury and Gloucester so many times that I ...

Ha - I found a flashgun - not the one I was looking for but it'll do. Ok, not a great pic but a huge improvement :)

I was out all day again as usual but once I got home I felt it essential that I at least plug in my new SplashArt kit and try it out. My next challenge will be to a) find my flipping flashgun and b) actually get the collisions in focus......... I love it though!

This evening didn't go quite according to play but at least I did spent a brief amount of time earlier with the camera. I anticipate being out all day on Saturday but, depending on the weather (ie. if it's sunny then I'm going out, I plan to try out the SplashArt kit.

It was a tad foggy this morning which I quite enjoy. Sadly I had to go to work - I'd have rather wandered up to the park but hey ho. By afternoon the sun came out which was also rather pleasant! My SplashArt kit arrived today - roll on the weekend when hopefully I might be able to try it out! ...

As usual I left the weekly B&W challenge to last minute and legged it into the garden as soon as I got home to find something 'low level' to photograph. Fortunately there were about 3 scabby daisies in the lawn. I had intended to find something during my lunchbreak to photograph - I had vagu...

I remembered this evening :) I did some still life pics earlier but the background didn't come out terribly well so I gave up. However at least a heavy crop resulted in this which is ok - not good enough to pop in my portfolio but better than nothing for my blog! I'm hoping town produces so...
