The adventures of the awesome one

Week #8 Still Life

A couple of weeks behind with posting my photo’s for the 52 Week Challenge.

Week #8 and the theme was still life, another bright and early morning provided my inspiration for the photograph.  Made some pancakes, threw on some berries and found a window with a nice bit of light.

Not entirely happy with the photo, I should have gone to get the tripod from the car and shot at a longer shutter speed, lower ISO, I would also increase the f stop to get the coffee in focus as well.

Pancakes, Berries and Coffee - Week #8 Still Life


A first place in competition.

Tonight, as on most Thursday evenings I went to Guisborough Photography Group.  Tonight was the results of the 5th club competition, entitled “up close and personal”.

Being my first year as a member of the group  I have entered competitions to receive the constructive feedback from the judges, rather than with the intention of winning.

Tonight however one of my images was voted as the winner by Jed Wee the guest judge.


Week #7 Love

Once again I am running a little behind with my posts, Week#7 came and went, the theme was love.

I have tried a number of times to convince my wife to pose for some photographs and always get told no chance, sadly.

This week’s challenge proved to be hard work, looking for inspiration in any available form.  Whilst almost giving up all hope and taking yet another selfie, an image truly depicting love appeared.

I was home alone one weekend with Isaac and Finley my two awesome little cool doods who decided to have an afternoon nap at the same time and an image of love was ready to be captured.

This is not the greatest photo ever to be taken, but I feel it is one of the biggest images depicting true love.

Isaac and Finley asleep and cuddling.

Week #6 – shadows

I know I only posted last night but I am running a little behind.  Last week I had a lovely week off of work relaxing and spending time with my amazing family. 

The challenge of the week was shadows and my mind instantly went to cinema again.

Light and shadow make the photograph, changes in how the shadows fall completely change the feeling of the capture, altering the reality of the moment.

Anyway here is my photo, once again a selfie.


Week #5 – Warmth

The challenge this week was the subject of warmth. We are currently experiencing a little bit of a cold spell, although not as bad as elsewhere. Here in the UK a little bit of snow and ice causes carnage on the roads, often resulting in delays.

I recall reading an article a while back about photography by candlelight and thought that this may produce the desired look.

The article I followed advice from is from Tutsplus, where I seem to spend a lot of my time reading.
