A selection of images captured on a recent shoot for Mothers Gin & Draft; a relatively new bar on Howe Street in central Edinburgh. Well worth a visit!
Jocktoberfest is an annual beer festival that takes place in early September at the Black Isle brewery, just north of Inverness. Aside from drinking copious amounts of outstanding beer and occasionally rolling off hay bales I did find some time to capture a few images of the weekend. Highly recommended!
Having recently purchased a macro lens for my camera I thought I’d give it a trial run. This series of images features regular soap bubbles shot using the macro lens with the aid of a couple of speed lights and a soft box. When illuminated the right way the vivd colours and organic shapes visible on the surface of these short-lived spheres are truly amazing.
En route to take some shots for a friend we took an unscheduled detour in order to check out a small abandoned cottage just off the main road. What we found was the kind of place a photographer could literally spend hours taking shots. Rotten floorboards, mouldy walls, retro wallpaper and general decaying interiors… amazing stuff.
Daffodils growing during the months of spring are a refreshing sight after a harsh winter. These were a few I had in a vase on my table. When they did eventually expire I decided to capture some shots of them against a matte black background with the aid of two remote speedlights… some interesting and rather abstract results.
