I cannot believe that it’s December already! Only three weeks to go! I didn’t decide on a theme this week – my creative juices seem to be evaporating in the heat.
Bolt – this is an abstract impression of my beagle, Romulus. I set my camera to a relatively slow shutter speed, and panned while Romulus ran past.
Witch’s brew – this was my amateur-version of Dina Belenko’s style; she’s one of my favourite photographers, and someone I have long admired.
911 – I had a lot of fun with this image’s special effects – I created my own mini fog machine by following this tutorial. I added the headlights and police lights to the car in Photoshop.
Make a wish… – I lit this dandelion seed with flash reflected off the wall behind it. I used the reverse-macro technique to get in close.
Dying wishes – this is a montage created in Photoshop, consisting of a duplicated texture and a dead dandelion seed.
Teddy – I helped out with Animal Allies again on Saturday, this time at Zandspruit township. The majority of the dogs were tiny puppies, some of which were young enough to still be drinking from their mothers – it broke my heart to see the awful conditions they live in.
Ghost’s breath – This is the first image I’ve taken in a while where I was absolutely delighted with the outcome. I positioned a candle in front of an unlit match, which spewed smoke, and then lit the image with back-flash.
Enjoy the rest of your week! I’d love to hear your thoughts and suggestions on my images.
