Photo365 – Day 365 – Happy New Year

I was intending writing Happy New Year with a sparkler for my last photo365. But I’m going to be rather busy this evening so I thought I’d have a go now as it’s technically the last day, even though it’s only half one in the morning! So I set the Olympus E-P2 up on a […]

Photo365 – Day 364 – bokeh

When you photograph highlights out of focus they create blobs of colour. The shape and size of the blob is dependent on the aperture configuration of the lens and the focusing point. They best looking ones are with lenses with more blades so a circle is created. I bought a couple of red Christmas candles […]

I cycled around Clumber Park today and took this shot in Hardwick village through the window of an old red phone box. It’s a mix of reflections and see through grotty glass areas.

Photo365 – Day 361 – Eyes on you

I spent a day in Nottingham looking round the sales. I always call in Fopp records, and today picked up the old film by Ken Russell – Altered States on dvd and a Sigur Ros deluxe limited edition of með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust. That was easier to copy and paste than try […]

Photo365 – Day 358 – Marbles

When I was a little boy I used to play with marbles a lot. As well as the usual games I invented my own. I used to roll them off the top of the stairs and watch them bounce down and see how far they would go. I then started adding obstacles, things that I […]

Photo365 – Day 357 – Bauble

I just did the standard bauble in shot Christmas card pic for ePHOTOzine. I used a red cloth background to add extra colour and make the lights go brighter. Here’s a version without. The background is the patio window. A reflector (nearby Christmas card) was used to fill light in on the bauble. The Olympus […]
