Photograph of the week #051

"When not scribbling away in a sketch book or dabbling on a Wacom tablet i'm invariably fiddling around with exposure settings on my Nikon D90 trying to capture moments in aesthetically pleasing ways.
So here we have "Photograph of the week" a (mostly) weekly feature showcasing my favourite photo of the week."


This weeks photo is another infra-red photo.

Coincidentally it was only last night I was wondering to myself.
"What would a rainbow look like in infra-red?"
Lo-and-behold! I arrive home from the office today to have a rainbow visible from my own back garden. I bumped the contrast a bit (on top of the usual post-processing) but now I know what a rainbow looks like in infra-red.

Now...
"I wonder what a million pounds would look like in infra-red!"



(Btw - I notice that it's only one week left now until the fifty second photograph-of-the-week, one years worth of weekly updates, give or take, I shall have to come up with something... either interesting, special or... different to celebrate. Stay tuned!"

This week I tried my hand at my first ever infrared photography.

It's quite an exciting new technique, i'm looking forward to trying it out elsewhere, you do get some very unique and sometimes unexpected results from it.

Scribble of the week #009

My sketch books are forever filled with random mind-scrawlings and scribbles that will otherwise never be used for anything or be seen by anyone, because of this I bring you "Scribble of the week".

Scribble of the week is a weekly feature(well, bi-monthly at best at the moment) where i'll be posting a random sketch, scribble, design or element from one of my various sketch books. These will always be unfinished pieces of work and will often, most likely, be very random.


This "week's" scribble is just a quick character concept.

I recently watched a video about doing quick "brain-stormy" character concept art.
It's all kept very simple, colours are just blocked in, line-art is messy and shading is very crude until a final concept is nailed down. Most details are totally absent and it gives me an excuse to totally disregard feet which is always nice :)

It's a fun exercise and keeps me scribbling so I expect I shall be working on other character concepts for a while now.

Photograph of the week #49

This week is a black and white photograph of a chain wrapped around a wooden post. Again this is a photo I took whilst at lunch, walking around the bay near my place of work.

I don't do black and white very often but it's a technique I do appreciate. Instead of confusing the image with too many colours and other stimulus with black and white you can concentrate purely on the subject, the atmosphere and the textures.

Just a quick Macro shot I took this morning of a ladder in my garden.

A quick macro shot from my garden og some morning dew formed on a weed(I think) that has now been removed.
