So I was watching you tube a few weeks ago, and got lots of ideas for studio photo shoots. Yesterday I decided to try out the first one, its a simple shoot with one light.
Place the glass in front of the light source, pour in some water, colour it if you want, and set the camera on burst shoot.
pour the water and fire away.
One thing you can guarantee, no two images will be the same.
go one give it a go.

Last night saw a Red moon.
That is when the moon passes through the shadow of the earth.
Whilst it was mostly obscured by cloud on the gold coast, perserverence paid off, and before it changed back to normal the clouds broke and I managed to get a couple of shots.

I received a book I ordered the other day.
I placed the order on Wednesday, there was a problem with the layout and some words would be cut off, I received and e-mail within hours informing me of the problem and how to rectify.
I had it all fixed by Thursday lunchtime and sent it off again.
It arrived on my door step, Monday afternoon. In that time they had proof read it, printed and bound it and delivered it in an excellent presentation box. I was extremely impressed with their service and quality of product.

These were taken on an iphone showing the presentation box, and bubble wrapped book, and the layflat pages with the photo spread accross both pages. I ordered the 5"x 7"book so the panoramas had to be modified to fit the 5" x 14" format.

here are a few of the images in their native resolution 20"x 8"

well, today I decided to set up a studio in the garage, then take some shots like you see in adverts.
here is the set up I used, two constant lights and some black paper.
the images then needed a bit of a tweak in photoshop.
I have decided in future i need some more black paper to stand them on or a mirror. the plastic board i usd needed a lot of cleaning up in post .
here are some of the images I produced.
what do you think?
hopefully it inspires some of you to go out and give it a go.

for the final shot i suspended the sunglasses using fishing wire then edited it out afterwards, i'm not sure it was worth the effort. but it was good to experiment

After leaving Beijing we travelled to Shanghai, this is a beautiful city with the weather changing creating different moods.
Here are a few of the many faces of the shanghai river front, the Bund.
The left side of the river, Pudong is very modern and futuristic.
The right bank is very European, from the 1920s
