Day 15: Cameron’s Bight Jetty

Day 15 of 30 day photography Challenge.

Yesterdays post inspired me to make a series of photos per day.

Often I take many photos only to pick my best one then discard the rest. Today i challenged myself to take at least 10 different photos of Cameron’s Bight Jetty it forced me to seek new perspectives. Sure they’re not all great photos and i had a limited amount of time to take them though I enjoyed the totally new perspectives I saw .

So for the next 10 days I will be sharing 10 photos a day. I find it a little daunting as time is limiting and subjects maybe boring though i find it a good way for me to broaden my photography and seek new perspectives.

Goodnight

Day 12 of 30 day Photography Challenge

Today I received macro extension tubes in the mail. I was so excited to try them out. I attached my lensbaby lens to them and experimented and was truly amazed at the results. I’ve never been one for closeup photography though this has really opened a whole new world. The detail in objects is truly amazing and i think a post solely devoted to this new equipment and photos is needed.

When i got home it was raining so a wander in the garden in between rain showers. I could probably count on my hands the amount of time i’ve photographed flowers. I find them beautiful they just don’t challenge me creatively, unless you try and capture them through a rain drop which I attempted though failed. This flower however fascinated me not sure what it is. Lots of bokeh and a tiny bit of focus to satisfy my creativity.

I’m Back

Hi everyone it’s been such a long time since I’ve been on WordPress. Life’s busy you know how it is.201902161550306431031

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.aalittleboatcrop-1

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?

All the best

Zoé

 

 

 

There’s a Chair over There

imageMy most popular photo this week on my Instagram profile is this photo I took of a Chair at Sunset at the beach at Low tide. This Chair has featured in a few photos and I have decided to make a new series of photographs “There’s a Chair over there” featuring this chair in different Landscapes.

I have still continued with my 366 project though if you have noticed I haven’t been very active on WordPress. That will hopefully change as I will be beginning/continuing another 366 project next year and also sharing  A photography assignment I am working on.

 

Landscape Challenge

Instead of doing my regular Photo of the week this week I’m participating in CCY Photo  #21 Landscape Challenge.  Most of the photos are composed using the rule of thirds I challenged myself by including an element in the foreground something I don’t usually do. The photo below was the most popular photo this week , which ones your favourite I’d love to know. ?imageimageimageimageimageimage

 

Photo of the Week. Fire Fishing

imageThis weeks Photo of the week from my 366 Project “Fire Fishing” is another silhouette; you may have figured out by now that I not only love sunsets but I also love silhouettes. The contrast in colours from the yellows to the black really appeal to me I also like the mystery of a faceless lone Figure.

This particular Sunset was spectacular and I wish I could have got a better composition with more of the sky though the pier is quite narrow and I really wanted to include the fisherman in the foreground to make it more interesting.
