studio shoot - Cello with model
Another home studio shoot but this time using a cello as a prop and, once again, using low key lighting. Productive shoot using a new octogon softbox with grid and shooting with Malvinita as the model again. Backdrop was an old mottled red one that I dyed to a much darker level and I feel it works very well for this type of shoot.
This gallery contains all the non human images including underwater as well as landscape and static objects. I have kept each gallery as lean as possible while still showing enough of the subject to stay true to the theme. Some of the styles here are what I really like to shoot such as the marine skins etc and I will probably add more as I progress. I also like using processing techniques to create different looks while using various tones as well as good old fashioned black and white.
Photographing people has been something that I haven’t had much time to do in the past but after doing a wedding for one of my nieces I found myself looking at ways to take shots with a different view in mind. I don't know where this will lead me but found the challenges of this type of photography of great interest. Processing also makes up a big part of these challenges and Photoshop has given me the tools needed to do this. Many of these images may contain some levels of nudity so if this offends then please, visit my other galleries.
I have spent most of my time dedicated to underwater photography over many years and still enjoy doing this today. Although this is mostly in Bali these days I will still keep this part of my site updated as well as links to all my older galleries. I will also continue to do trip reports. Diving and underwater photography have been a big part of my life but I am spending much more time pursuing different interests with my camera. This page will lead you to my underwater galleries as well as information.
Images created from multiple photographs.
Every now and then I like to process my images in more unconventional ways based on things I see in nature or just to try something a little different. This page is dedicated to just this side of my photography and the images I have been able to create. I don't know where this will lead me but found the challenges of this type of photography of great interest. Many of these images may contain some levels of nudity so if this offends then please, visit my other galleries.
Born in Adelaide, Australia I went to school locally and a subject that grabbed me at an early age was photography. I mostly had "hand me down" SLR cameras with a number of not so good lenses but I persisted and found a facination with black and white photography along with developing my own film. At an early age I developed an interest in underwater photography so at the age of 15 I built my own housing from perspex. In it I had a kodak instamatic camera that was very limited but, it worked. Still got it now! I moved to the West Coast when I was 16 and within ........ Read More
