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 hangContinue reading “First still life with Olympus Pen F.”
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.
February is one of my favourite months, winter is making way for Spring, and there is new life blossoming. Yesterday I spent a rather chilly day at Angelsey gardens just outside of Cambridge, despite the drizzle I managed to take a few blossom shots. The smell was amazing- winter honeysuckles and daphneContinue reading “Still life, blossom”

I just love the simplicity of this little pink bell and the texture of the cut glass, soContinue reading “Spring still life.”
I love wandering round farms, I know some may find that strange, but the textures of old bits of farm machinery really do make for an interesting capture. I love the detail of these chains and the colours. Shot with my old Fuji dslr with a vintage 100mm nikon lens, cool daylight, iso-400, shutter 125,Continue reading “Texture, still life”
I just love how soft and dreamy this shot came out! It was taken in my garden room in this cool light we’re getting now. I think my depth of field must of been about f3 and my ISO was 400 with a really slow shutter. I can’t wait for the tulips to makeContinue reading “Parrot tulip still life.”
Love the texture of these old books wrapped in the softness of the ribbon. Vintage Nikon 50mm lens, bright day, available light-warm, ISO 400, F5, shutter 120.
