The Desperate Bride

“This was taken at sunrise in Miami using only natural light. I wanted an image showing emotion, which the model achieved standing among the dynamic breaking waves. I was stood in the water myself in order to capture this, so used a waterproof housing on my D800E. I was cautious as I had previously lost a D800 to the sea in exactly the same place!”

Little Dancer

“The simplicity of this image gives the observer the opportunity to explore his or her own sentiments. I created the drops on the dandelion by carefully resting clear and coloured drops of water on its surface. This too was created in my modest home studio using continuous light. The intention behind the photo is to arouse our inner senses.”

Little Dreamer

“Almost all of my extreme close-ups of flowers are actually taken in my garden at home. I focused carefully on the stamen, using a wide aperture to allow the rest of the flower and its surroundings to fall gently out of focus. My grandmother used to have this plant in her garden so this photo brings back strong childhood memories for me.”

“I try to take my camera with me whenever I’m out and about – always ready to capture that really special moment whenever it arises. Photographing these flowers in fine detail is like a release for me – it's very cathartic. I find that it's the perfect remedy that helps me calm down, and slow down after a particularly stressful day at work.”

“I shot this Physalis in my humble studio. I say studio, but it's really an old garden table set up in my cellar! The light is provided by a desk lamp and the background is coloured paper. Backlighting the Physalis shows off its delicate structure and translucent form. I enjoy exploring the tiny details of nature that are often overlooked.”

L.A. Reimagined

“This is a three-image panorama taken from the Hollywood Hills. In processing, I decided I wanted a surreal scene so I manipulated the roads on the right and moved them further into the frame than they would appear from that vantage point. I replaced the sky with two other shots for the clouds and lightning. Hence, L.A. Reimagined!”

Darwin’s Den

“Tripods aren't allowed in London's Natural History Museum, so I set my camera on my jacket on the handrail to bracket several shots. I loaded the images into Photoshop as layer masks and brushed to remove the people. I then added highlights from the bracketed shots.”

Night Is Falling

“A low angle of the Louvre offers an interesting composition. The diamond tiles mirror the pyramids and provide symmetry as the walls of the palace close in on the central stuctures. I replaced a blue sky with one from another shot, matching the colours in Photoshop.”
