I have a few crystals I have collected over the years and was fortunate enough to find a crystal vein on our property years ago and collected alot of quartz crystals which unfortunately i have since misplaced.
Though as quartz and diamonds are mainly translucent and sparkly I’ve used images ive taken with my crystal ball using it as a lens to see through rather than focussing on its colour.
The crystal Ball causes refraction and turns the World up side Down
And because i feel i have gone completely of topic I have also included a moving image I took of my crystal ball and a tree with my 3D – 35mm camera which has 3 different lenses that simultaneously capture 3 different images of 3 different perspectives of the subject and when combined appear 3d.
Here in Australia it is Autumn. The days are getting shorter although the weather is still quite warm and people are still out enjoying the beach.
I actually took these photos this week for a 52 Week Project I am doing . This week the theme was “activity” after being unsuccessful capturing anything all week I returned to the beach yesterday and captured a few people engaged in different activities during the last few hours of daylight.
In 2012 I began seriously getting into digital photography and would take 20 to 30 photos to get the shot I wanted . Nothing like when I first started with a film camera and every photo was a different shot. Is because I have become lazy or a perfectionist the reality is I don’t delete photos and have thousands of photos on sd cards and hardrives which are organised in dates which had become forgotten.
In 2018 when I was going through the photos and saw the slight movement between the photos ( I actually thought I’d discover motion pictures. Lol) I decided to join them altogether to make little slideshows.Whether it was nostalgia of looking at my children when they were younger and reliving the times I bribed them to be in my crazy photos it gave me the motivation to organise and make more videos and Motion Marinade the project began. I have since become obsessed with creating these videos that are a cross between a stop motion Slideshow Or a pixilation which I have most recently been informed of while doing an animation course. From stop motion to time lapse I have attempted them anything that is essentially a photograph with motion I explore now I have realised I can attach them on here I’ll be sharing more.
This was the first moving image I created from photos I took of my daughters In 2014 A Fairy Tale. I have so many more videos old and new that I’ve created and I’m also currently making a short film that I’ll be releasing later this year.
While in lockdown my backyard has become a Sanctuary a place to retreat and observe and immerse in the wonderful details of nature I have taken a lot of photos and Moving Image videos throughout the pandemic.
This particular morning I looked out my kitchen window It had just rained the sky was clearing and the sun was rising and the tree was covered in raindrops which were glistening. I couldn’t quite capture what I saw though it was truly magical . I proceeded to explore some more and was particularly attracted to the drops on a leaf the suns rays made it glow a brilliant white. Below is a video of the magic raindrop and some photos.
I’d been watching the peak of Arthur’s Seat be swept over with a thick mass of clouds on and off all day. Finally after work I ventured up the hill to investigate. When I arrived to SeaWinds a blanket of cloud swept over. I was thankful that I may get Some foggy photos. The fog came and went in waves. When it cleared I was disheartened though my spirits were quickly picked up with another wave of cloud that settled over the trees.
I’ve been wanting to get up to Seawinds for a while to get some photos for some new jewellery pendants. I’ll share the new pendant design next week. In the meantime here’s a collection of photos of Seawinds before the leaves change colours. Which will be very soon.*
Im currently doing a portfolio course and one of the assignments is to set the tone for a portfolio.
I took these photos recently in hopes to have a unified series of photos of Beachboxes.
I had spotted these Beachboxes over the months and had been waiting for an overcast flat Sky to unify them togeather. Although the last 2photos have a more colourful colour pallette I think the green grass ties them altogether.
Hi everyone it’s been such a long time since I’ve been on WordPress. Life’s busy you know how it is.
I’ve decided to update my site beginning with a domain which has been funded by selling one of my of my Fine Art Prints -Boat in Fog at Red Hills Art Show. It’s from a series of prints of Fog.
This one was taken on a foggy afternoon in 2014. I love the minimal effect the fog creates on the landscape isolating the boat and also the tiny little figure of a sup boarder in the distance.
If your interested on purchasing a print please get in contact so we can discuss your requirements.
The layout of the site will stay the same and I’ll primarily use the site as my portfolio. I also like participating with photography challenges and hope to do a photo a day for the month of June.
If you know of any photography challenges on here worth getting involved in please let me know and also any feedback on improvments I could make to my site would be good. I’d like to add an instagram icon link anybody know how to do that?
