First still life with Olympus Pen F.

   I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was to pick up my new camera the Olympus pen F! Kid in a sweet shop springs to mind. I opted for the 17mm 1.8 lens over the 40mm although I will add a couple of pros to that list once I’ve got the hang of the beast! Now I…

The white forest.

      There is simply nothing to say except- inspired light. Fuji finepix S3 pro- vintage 50mm Nikon lens. ISO 400, F2, shutter 260, natural day light- cool.

Still life, blossom

         February is one of my favourite months, winter is making way for Spring, and there is new life blossoming.

The smell was amazing- winter honeysuckles and daphne filled the air with their…

Winter berries.

Still life, burst.

   Bursts of Spring are emerging throughout the countryside, I love the promise, it’s unbreakable, and beautiful. I love taking pictures at this time of year, the light is gorgeous with just a hint of warmth but still further on the cool side, it’s sometimes hazy which makes for a real atmospheric shot, and my favourite subjects (flowers) are starting…

Spring still life.

   A very whimsical Spring shot I took last year on my Fuji DSLR with my favourite vintage Nikon lens that I pinched from my dad, yes he does know, ha, I’m always pinching his camera equipment. I just love the simplicity of this little pink bell and the texture of the cut glass, so pure. Natural light- cool, ISO…
