Colour gels

Had an hour playing with the water drops again this time using colour gels on the flash........

..... to be honest I prefer mono. Maybe the next session will see me once again processing in black and white.

I seem to be getting consistent results now so I will be moving on to the next step next week..... using a black paint tray for the reflection of both the drop and background . I think this is where colour will come into play.

It looks like another trip to Wilkos to find a suitable container.

Peering out of the window at 0645 I noticed the lying frost and clear sky. Gave myself a push, got ready and donned extra clothing, threw the backpack over my shoulder then had a five minute cycle ride to the lake. It was cold, wish I'd have put a f...

19 of 52 - Part 1 - Gone to seed

I decided to pick what was left of a Hawkweed plant that was in the yard and take a shot of a couple of dried seed pods ... which is'nt very good. As there's a clear sky out there tonight I thought I would include the latest phase of the wanin...

I demand you stop uploading these pictures immediately - you're producing far superior results to my efforts and it's not fair Tongue Smile

Was thinking of having a rest from things Alison, this machine sure is addictive, A self imposed break may be on the cards as I don't want to sicken myself.

I'm sure you'll be able to get a result before long .... keep things going.
