"Bubbles"

by Fiona Chance.

One of the Wild Dolphins project that saw these all over various parts of Aberdeen in 2014. The subsequent auction of them raised an amazing £531,000 for charity and they have since been re-distributed around Aberdeen and some farther field.  This one was a surprise find at #collieston   #aberdeenshire , right on the cliff side, gazing out to sea.

Morning all.

Wonderful! There have been two similar projects in parts of NY that I've seen. One with horses & one with cows (I believe that's coos in Aberdeenspeak). Always brings a smile to your face to stumble upon one!

That's a neat monument.

That's really sad to rip off someone else's work to that extent.
It seems recently that a lot of things in my photography life have been happening in little clumps. All at once I’ll get messages from people in the same c

#PLUSpost Week1 Lighting With Intent with +Eric Raeber #LightWIT

So, I was really pleased to firstly get accepted into +Eric Raeber's new Lighting mentorship, then even more pleased to get started last weekend.   

I'm anticipating an interesting learning curve over the 9 weeks of this mentorship, but this week has been about learning some basics on the use of flash, including how the use of different positioning, power output and light modifiers can have a big effect on the output.  In the album (which is fully captioned up) you can see we were looking at the shutter curtain effect, and different lighting angles and modifiers.  

Eric had us wandering our homes in total darkness with a torch to see what interesting surfaces and modifiers were lying around and not hospitalise ourselves in the process by tripping up over dog toys and furniture ;) You can see a few shots with our fridge as an excellent background-come-reflector ;)    In the course of this, learning about the subtleties of how shadows fall.

Finally, armed with this little extra knowledge the brief was to partially light another subject, leaving some ares unlit, which I did with the candle holder and box.

Really enjoying the learning element, and look forward to the next 8 weeks :)

Mentorship sponsored by the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers

Simple Pleasures and definitely no wi-fi :)

Morning all, have a great Tuesday. A little shot from Collieston, Aberdeenshire, at the weekend. Lots of pier and beach maintenance going on (with the local community pitching in to help, if not doing it entirely - nice to see such sense of working together - not something you'll see much of these days even in a small town, let alone a big city) and I guess someone got a new boat for this year :)
