Exploring the Local

While out and about last week I managed to get a couple of shots that I deemed worth sharing on here. They’re simple textures or colour works that caught my eye while doing the usual rounds of dog walking – it’s my intention to start taking a camera with my wherever I go, even if…

How to introduce yourself

I have always been a cautious, over-thinker. Fearful of what I might end up doing or how things might turn out if I completely commit to them. What changes will my dedication bring out in myself and what will I have to sacrifice and “miss-out” on while I am blindly following my latest ‘calling’ without…

Black Hand Marines

I found some images that I’d forgotten that I had taken last night when working on a simple graphic for BlackHandMarines.com and I thought I would share a few of them with you. As far as I remember they were all painted by Blackhandmarines.com. I think the reason I forgot about them was because at the…

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…

Chapter Master – Templars of Righteousness

I keep finding myself models that I’ll have ‘to go back’ too and revisit because I’m not happy with how they come out the first time. Again, it was that dreaded, depth of field that I kept getting ‘wrong’ with this model. Maybe I was a little too ambitious too soon with my plans for…

Revisiting a Champion

When I originally posted about this particular model, I really struggled to capture what I wanted. I had struggled with the Depth of Field aspect of capturing him. So, when I got my new camera the other day, I was eager to give him another try! I am humble when I say I think I…

Chapter Master

This is my home-brew Space Marine chapters (Blood Guard) Chapter Master model. And I cheated my hind legs off to get this photograph looking right! This is the overall feel I would like to achieve for my photographs, but I managed to get this looking right thanks to using Photoshop and merging two photographs together…

Scout Bike

I don’t share enough of my own models on here – mostly because I don’t really see them as being great subjects for photography; my painting skills certainly aren’t up to the same standards as my peers so I much prefer taking photographs of their models – but sometimes you just see a model and…

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…
