Published Images – Aviation Photographs

Today an Aviation magazine dropped through the door today from a European publisher who I deal with. I opened the magazine and found they had used 3 of my photos. One of an Olympic Air A320 used twice and the other of an Aegean A321, both aircraft landing at London Heathrow.

Milk Splash Photography Part 2

Carrying on the Milk Splash Theme.

I picked up a CD case and under it a black cloth. 2 flashes were used either side of CD case. I used coloured milk for the drops

Tonight I decided to crack open the food colouring again and try some Milk Splashes. I set up the Canon 1DMKIII and 100mm F2.8 Macro lens with a 580ex connected via the hot shoe cord mounted on a light stand to my left. I used a black and a white background.









Bushy Park

Following the South London Fives 10km race I decided to take a wander around Bushy Park so I strapped the 300mm and x1.4 or x2 converter on the 1DMKIII and headed off. First up I encountered a Grey Heron fishing in the stream that runs down the middle of the park.

After taking far to many Heron photos I wandered across the Park to the Plantation area in the hope I’d find some early spring flowers. On arrival in the plantation I found no early spring flowers but what was catching every bodies attention and had mums grabbing their kids for safety was two Egyptian Geese battering nine bells out of each other.

After 12 rounds it was a points decision!

So to calm down I took a stroll around the duck pond and found a Pochard doing its hair up!

Flying over head and then landing on some poles ready for their next attack on unsuspecting toddlers with bread were the seagulls.

Just round the corner I think one of the toddlers was that scared by the Seagulls that they had let go of their kite and it got stuck in a tree.

Upon leaving the park I noticed that the bike rack was empty as most people were cycling round enjoying the Crisp Spring weather

London Photographer – Model Photography

Took some time out to work with Kay who kindly did the modelling today in my home studio. We played around with various photography items including softboxes, umbrellas, grid spots, coloured gels and various lenses . However the key to everything today was the stripy socks!
