A little in beaux reflets

Streams of light dance in every direction, refracting and reflecting, to illuminate a colourful living planet.

Providing moments to be captured and recorded through the art of photography.

Golden Oldie

The Heiress
A modern portrait with a twist, to an old fashioned Sepia style.

Taken using a digital camera, the image has been manipulated to appear as though it was done by plate photography, with a painted colour detail added, as may have been commissioned by the well to do, towards showing off their wealth in earlier times.

Utilising the lakeside rocks with a low camera position to provide the elevated air to the composition, and a fill in flash to illuminate the model against the strong back light of the scene.

A Winter Dance

Strung along the edge of a tin roof, the row of icicles danced gently in the breeze; While their droplets in the thaw, played a tune on the ice below.
