We’ve been playing with Objects and Backdrops today – and the toy cars!
Continuing on from last week we set up our shots on the stations before taking the shots with our camera
Using the clips from old magazines and the toy cars produced some really good shots and saved us the cost of location (Hee Hee!)
I revisited this picture from the last session. Using the pencils as “Pointers”. I hadn’t spotted this till after taking the pic, but I created a “Sunrise” effect by marking them out.
As well as the lego men, Graham, one of the group brought in some railway model men
this allowed the group to be a bit more adventurous with our photos….
and here’s a couple when I got home 🙂 Created along the same principles – studio a bit more rustic than that of BASIC Clicks…but objects and subject matter stayed the same (Astronomy book provided a little colour!)
If you’ve got any favourites – feel free to let me know!

Today, we’ve been out in the Enchanted Garden @ BASIC. Capturing some brilliant images for use in a future display. Mostly these were roses , but also the wildflowers and poppies planted throughout the garden.

An Afternoon of Close ups and scene changes today at BASICs photography workshop.
Fortunately, our Models weren’t that overly demanding!
The workshop took place in the centre Café – Food for thought .
We had some fun and games in a still life session with some old bears! These bears had been collected over the years by our tutor – and formed a core part of a marvellous still life session. The bears were backlit and positioned on their thinking spots before we took the shots. I like the end results we got from this session.
Before taking each shot, we set up our “Stars” on their stage and adjusted lights and tripods accordingly – but being used to using my Sony Cybershot I mostly went for the point and shoot approach….I liked what came off the camera chip 🙂

Todays session of the photography group concentrated on Still life.
It also covered areas of using a zoom lens and tripod.
The above pic was created using a small water fountain, brought in by our marvellous tutor Maggie, a star tripod and my Sony Bridge Camera.
I particularly liked the running water and the shadows in this shot.
I also played around with a seashell using the mermaids backdrop for a covering background. I like the details of the shells in this one.
The main task for setting up both of these shots was the set up behind the objects. this shot shows the distance for some shots requiring the lighting. In the end, I found perching myself at the short end of the table worked the best in both lighting and end result.
