Photo of the week.
Not a new photo but photo of the week because “Top Dog” has just won another little prize on Purple Port. This composition of me and my daughter’s dog, Vincent keeps doing well in various competitions including Creative Photo of the Year 2018 at Southampton Camera Club. Compositions like this make fun but sometimes tricky editing projects. A little planning before hand can make the subsequent work more straight forward.

When you are lucky enough to find a Fallow Buck with the right background make sure you control the exposure. This is probably my favourite of my recent wildlife photos. The antlers are nearly full grown at this time of year but they still have their velvety layer of live tissue covering them.

Do I like rainy days? Not really but I do get a chance to play and learn, experimenting with new editing techniques. This one I like. It’s an old photo from a shoot with Emma Appleton-Smith where we were working on levitation photos. Bless Emma, on a freezing cold day she climbed through a step ladder in the middle of a huge puddle in the New Forest. I took my photos and then removed the step ladder in post processing. We had a pretty good image but now adding this surreal fantasy effect I think it is even better.

As part of my wedding package I offer a free photo shoot just to make sure we are all relaxed with working together and on this occasion it turned into a bit of Family Fun. I hadn’t met Koralee before but she was a little star. Kirsty and Nigel’s wedding is going to be great fun. Really looking forward to it.
You can see more about the wedding packages I offer on my dedicated wedding website here.
My lovely wife Joanne wanted to design and make a corset and dress from paper. Then she included a wig made of paper and these are some of the results. There were so many striking images from this shoot it was well worth the effort. Emma Appleton-Smith really suited the look and as always was such a pleasure to work with. I’m seriously looking forward to Joanne’s next project.
So pleased my 2 photos have been shortlisted in the “Life is all about…” competition run by the Rowans Hospice. All short listed photos will be on display next week at the Rowans Living Well Centre in Purbroke. Very happy to be supporting a great cause.
