I’ve been cheering myself up with some festive photography lately – hope you like them …. just a bit of festive fun ! Of course, the true meaning of Christmas is that God sent his Son into the world to redeem mankind and offer eternal life to those who believe in Him, not because we…
My favourite subject when I used to paint was Still Life and that seems to be what I like to do best with my camera too. Sometimes I thrash around for ideas and sometimes a lone object just pops into my head and I begin to plan what the eventual picture will be. I was…
Decided to try out some tin foil for a background to these cherries. This one looked as if the cherries were ‘jumping’ to me …. That’s all the cherries for now …. up next – more flowers! bye for now, Eileen
I had to resist eating the cherries I’d bought while I had fun photographing them. I can’t claim originality for the idea of using forks in a still life image, but I tried to do my own thing with them …. Hope you liked them … I hope to show some Roses next time, Eileen
Still Life of Course!
Been stuck indoors a lot lately but amused myself with setting up some more still life subjects. The trug and especially the brown jug have been favourites of mine from way back – I like the ‘rustic’ look and feel of them. It seems that there are people out there who haven’t heard of, or…
How Did I Get in Here?
After doing some ‘still life’ with this little chap I tried to use my imagination in other ways to involve him in a story and this is the result. It took several days to do stuff in my Paintshop Pro , mainly because it’s fiddly trying to get accurate selections and then reversing them to…
In my ‘artistic’ days when I did a lot of painting in water colour and oils, the subject I enjoyed most was Still Life. So, in the times that I’ve exhausted garden stuff to photograph, and when there are no ‘hoomans’ to hand, I turn to setting up objects indoors to get creative with. It’s…
For a Short While – The Rain
I took these photos through the window a few days ago when we had rain as a respite from the heat wave. The forecast seems to be for a bit more of our usual weather shortly, but that’s ok cos I don’t like the heat that much! It’s probably an age thing as all the…
I love lavender plants and so do the bees …. ladybirds and butterflies are in short supply in my garden – well, non-existent really – but the bees are out in force. So, I thought I’d have another go at practicing with the macro setting on my new camera. Hmm – very disappointing I…
Pond [er] Again
As well as buying a new camera I went mad and bought an updated version of my Paintshop Pro software – x6. I tinkered around a bit with the colour on these duck images. They were in dappled shade which I quite liked, but I think I could probably have got more light within the…
