More Quiet Work

A lovely quiet time taking these today, although it took ages trying to get a shot I was happy with..and I’m still not totally pleased with some of the focus in a few. I wanted the background blurred but a few more seeds clear..maybe a slightly wider depth of field next time. I may try the lone seeds with the cloth up the wall too – I thought I wanted that separating line, but now I’m not so sure..anyway, it was a good learning day!

I found these gorgeous seed heads in the lane, which begged to be used with the bowl (who still felt he had not had enough attention yet)

Even our lunatic cat chilled out, he was rolling around and watching me all afternoon.

Play

.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, you might remember this experiment. I was playing with light, shining objects in darkness and capturing them. I was mainly interested in the black and white ones, likeĀ this, but now I’m wondering if they work in colour too. In the black and white images, I added extra layers, but these are just as they were captured..I may work into them more..really you need to see these big, but this is as big as I seem to be able to fit them here.

Sand and Sunglasses

.

When I was out at Exmouth the other day, I noticed how great the beach looked through my sunglasses, and it got me thinking about filters and things, and wishing I had some to experiment with. I wondered how it might look if I took the photograph through the sunglasses instead, and these came out – I quite like them and think they look just a little like old film..anyway leaving you here with some colour – have a great weekend!
