May Food Shoots Roundup

I’ve been continuing with regular food ingredients shoots this month, concentrating mainly on my weekly fruit and veg box deliveries! I’ve been sticking to simple fresh food ideas on plain backgrounds, mainly with high key lighting. Many of the images have been a flat lay style with options including plenty of copy space. This week […]

Oaty Spelt Soda Bread

I’ve made my Oaty Lockdown Loaf quite a few times now, but it’s generally a job for the weekend as it takes quite a few hours from start to finish, so I was looking for a quicker recipe to try for a midweek loaf. I like Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Seedy Rye Soda Bread from his River […]

Oaty Lockdown Loaf

I’ve been unable to get hold of any wholemeal bread flour so far during the lockdown, so when I found my local Sainsbury’s had strong while bread flour last week I grabbed a bag and thought I’d try out a version of Delia Smith’s Oatmeal Bread recipe (as oats seem to be in good supply […]

April Food Shoots Roundup

As I said in my Food Images and Galleries post at the start of the month, I’ve been turning my hand to adding to my collection of food images on Alamy during the lockdown.  Rather than post a Last Week’s Shoot blog for each shoot, I thought I’d just have a summary of some of […]

Food Images and Galleries

There’s only so much re-visiting of keywording on Alamy that one can do during the lockdown and I wanted to keep producing new imagery every week, so my kitchen has become my studio and I’ve been concentrating on adding more food images to my small collection. I’m concentrating mainly on food ingredients, trying to make […]

Knaresborough Castle at Sunset

Last Week’s Shoot – Knaresborough in Spring

As I rely on public transport for most of my photo shoots I’ve obviously had to rip up my shoot plan for the immediate future, so in lieu of a full shoot last week, here are a few spring images captured on my exercise walks to Conyngham Hall and back last week and a sunset […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Ripon and Harrogate

I had a trip up to Ripon last week – not specifically for a shoot, but I popped my little E-M10 Olympus in my bag (it doesn’t take up much room) just in case!  The weather was a bit overcast, but it was quite nice for spring flowers, so I had a look at the […]

City Square in Dundee

Last Week’s Shoot – Dundee

This is actually a shoot from the week before last as I’m still catching up on processing from my latest trip to Fife, staying in my friend’s comfortable apartment in St Andrews.  It’s just a short hop over the Tay on the bus from St Andrews to Dundee, so it’s a place I’ve visited a […]

Rock Formation on Brimham Moor

Last Week’s Shoot – Brimham Moor

After the previous week’s somewhat tricky conditions at Force Gill I was hoping for better weather for my landscape photography shoot at Brimham Moor (and Rocks) last week.  The forecast was for light cloud and low wind so I set out early enough to explore the moor and get some shots in the afternoon if […]

Force Gill near Ribblehead

Last Week’s Shoot – Force Gill

With a week of damp and dreary weather forecast I was looking for a new waterfall to photograph, so I decided to head to Ribblehead and have a walk up Force Gill having spotted Low Force, Force Gill from the path ascending Whernside when I was doing the Yorkshire Three Peaks walk a few years […]
