Having acquired some very interesting pheasant feathers some time ago I recently had the opportunity to spend some time shooting them. Things really get interesting once you begin looking closer at the details. I used reverse adapted prime lenses (50mm & 35mm) together with a two strobe studio setup to really capture the feathers up close and personal. Interesting results!
Both myself and a friend headed down to Bamburgh castle via North Berwick to check out a venue for a wedding that’s due in August. The castle and surrounding area are quite stunning; a real rich backdrop to any wedding… should be a good day’s shooting.
A few snaps taken whilst breaking into a felling area in the Scottish highlands. The mist interacting with the trees can result in some interesting yet often eerie effects.
Some shots captured whilst checking out a huge area of felled woodland in Scotland. The white wood shapes contrasted strongly against the lush green moss and grass that enveloped them.
Whilst out and about in the highlands I often like to try out a little long exposure photography. These images were captured in a various spots from highland waterfalls, to lowland marshlands. Exposure times vary from 5 through to 20 seconds with the aid of two neutral density filters and a sturdy tripod.
A few shots captured whilst exploring the west highlands of Scotland. As ever, some truly stunning scenery which makes for some dramatic photographs.
