Holga Impressions of Venice

Holga Impressions of Venice

When I visited Venice with Mum in May of 2011, Mark loaned me his Holga and some rolls of colour and B&W film, although neither of us thought to have a run-through of the camera and its’ workings before I went. Consequently, I had little understanding of how to correctly wind on the film, the […]

Star Blossom Part 1

Star Blossom Part 1

When my Uncle Fergus asked me if I would produce a series of photo illustrations for his new book of poetry and prose, I was extremely pleased and excited to be asked, whilst at the same time equally apprehensive that I would be unable to rise to the challenge and create anything remotely suitable to do […]

Cloned Self Portraits: How I Do It

Cloned Self Portraits: How I Do It

I have been asked by several online friends how I create the photos of multiple me’s such as this one below, so here is a tutorial. This is my Christmas card 2010. I set up the tripod in the corner of the room and composed the shot, ensuring that all the places I planned to […]

Royal Photographic Society International Projected Image Exhibition 2010

In an attempt to get my work more “out there”, I have entered the General Digital category of The Royal Photographic Society International Projected Image Exhibition 2010. The theme running through these images is my developing (and some may say, disturbing) obsession with dead insects, moths and butterflies. I have come across so many of these […]

I have been asked by a couple contacts on Flickr about the making of this image, so once again here is a break-down of the different components used, and stage I went through to reach the finished article. The first stage was to combine a lighter exposure with a darker exposure, so I pasted the […]

Having spent all afternoon on this image, I have decided once more to share how I did it, and which individual images went into making the final artwork.  I started with a self-portrait taken recently in the New Forest, using flash diffused through an umbrella, one of the first that I have ever done using […]


“Cut” – The Making of an Image

"Cut" - The Making of an Image

I have recently been experimenting with multiple texture overlays in CS3, to create slightly more abstract images as I start to move down the path of Fine Art Photography, and a comment from one of my friends on Flickr has prompted me to write this piece.  Jeremy said “I have no idea what I’m looking […]
