Deconstructed Rocky Road…

Hello my Friends, I thought this week I might bring you some food porn, as it seems to be referred to a lot these days; Rocky Road anyone? How decadent is that dark chocolate? and the fresh fluffy marshmallows? mix it all in with some salty popcorn, the only thing missing is glaced cherries! This…

Sweet Tooth…

How about a Still Life/ Food Photography workshop for the Sweet Tooth? This is some images from a workshop from last year. Was actually shot outside with some wonderful late Autumn sunshine. White and bright, soft, sweet and so, so yummy. Want in on some great fun? I will look at running something like this again…

Workshops…looking back

I am right in the middle of arranging more Still Life and Product Workshops for the Winter months, and decided to go through some shots taken from last year’s workshops. These are from a Country Charm Styled Workshop Interested in attending a workshop with all the bells and whistles? Lots of fun in a relaxed,…

A little country – Quail Eggs…

Occasionally while out and about, especially at markets you can find some treasures, this morning while I was waiting to pay from some fruit and flowers I had grabbed I noticed these little buckets/punnets of Quail Eggs, oh they were divine; had to have THOSE. So much nicer to shoot than plain old chicken eggs……..got…

Cool and Casual Table Decor

Continuing on from my Shabby Chic…….how about a little cool and casual, relaxed entertaining? We love our Summer evenings here (in Australia), those balmy nights; just made for relaxing with friends over a nice cool drink. Nothing too fancy, I’m still keeping it simple, tea lights in jam jars, pop them on a lovely timber…

Shabby Chic Table Decor

So last week I did a post on Rustic Table Decor, with which I commented that I was not over impressed with my kitchen table images. It is actually a little dark in there and it didn’t have the ‘right’ feel for what I wanted. My Kitchen area is very rustic/country meets modern country, but…

An Apple a day…

Hello, Yes I am still playing with some fruit…this time apples, oh a good Granny Smith, just great aren’t they? This time I popped them in a glass vase, popped them in a darkened corner and shot using filters light from over my shoulder…….this could actually make a good centerpiece for a table……mmmmmmmm ideas, let…

Anyway I have decided to share some table decor ideas/images now that we are past the whole Christmas/New Year festive…

Celebrate…

Hello… It’s time to celebrate! So much to be thankful for this year; health happiness and friends………and then there are these two photos. I shot this on black perspex, with a snoot on my modelling light, set low. I put my camera on a tripod and took the shot. These are pretty much SOOC (Straight…

Baubles on Black and White…

Hello, I thought I would play around with some simple Christmas decorations on Perspex……..nothing fancy, on black with a snoot on a modelling light and on white perspex with some natural backlight. I love how the different light gives a different mood and feel….the white looks more wintery and calm, while the black looks more…

A Little Vintage #2…

Hello, A little while ago, a friend lent me her Vintage camera collection to play with and do some Still Life. They tell a story too, the life and times of the modern photographic camera. Aren’t they superb? Apparently they all work too, so I had to be very careful. What vintage finds do you have…

Time for Tea…

Hi, I recently bought myself this stunning bunch of Australia Waratahs and took them to my friend, Desley’s house for some photo fun. I loved her bare white walls and the washed timber table top, so perfect for still life, oh how wonderful is that soft dreamy light. She even had these cute little mugs…
