Watergrove

We recently went on a walk around Watergrove reservoir and I took a few images while I was there. The vast majority of them were simple texture images for use in my illustrations – which was the aim when we went and what I was looking for – but there were a couple of images…

Bury Photographic Society

On the 6th of September I made my first appearance at Bury Photographic Society, so I guess that means I am a bit more serious about growing this whole ‘photography thing’ after all! It was a bit of an eye-opener, that left me with a conflicted mixture of inspired and intimidated; the meeting was a…

fstops

Image wise, this might be a bit of a dull post to look at – sorry for that. After my blunder with not remembering which way round fstops worked and how they effected Depth of Field I wanted to have a little experiment. Setting my Canon Eos 20D to aperture priority I set about gradually…

Warriors

  This was taken during the same session as my previous post so I was still suffering from my exposure, depth of field and aperture issues. But, out of the images I took this session I think this is the one that I felt was closest to what I am after. It’s a little bit…

Art in the heart

I was out on my own walking the dog earlier – when across my path a little birdy bobbed along. I didn’t get a good look at the birds chest (and I’m not enough of an expert to tell the difference without seeing it) so I don’t know if it was a Thrush or a…

Ana Victoria Calderón Skillshare Course – Part 1

I wasn’t going to make an update quite so soon as this, but seeing as my internet is currently being rather intermittent and temperamental with me, I thought I might as well share my discoveries thus far. I recently signed up to a website called Skillshare. It’s where various creatives come together to teach their…

Not everything works.

Sometimes the things we create don’t always turn out the way we would like them too. I found that out this week while at Bury Art Society. The theme of this week was to create something from memory or imagination; a rather fun little idea that I thought would be great to try out some…
