I had the distinct pleasure of being chosen to photograph and author for her upcoming novel. This is one of my favourite images. Shot in a local cemetery on a rare bright sunny day in the dead of winter.
Every now and then, everything co-operates just so and the shots turn out exceptionally well. The lighting was perfect, the wind as mild and even the temperature co-operated, more or less.
With her permission, I'll be posting more images in the future.

Last bar shot I promise. I liked the subtle lighting over the bottles and the way the colours bounce off the mirror in the back.
Weirdly enough, the convention was a dress-up one, and yet the vast majority of people in nicely thought-out clothes, where too shy to have their picture taken, so, no pics of people, just pretty bottles.


I like the play of light off the glassware. Same convention, same bar, yaddayaddayadda.


More images from the bar. I can't decide which version I like most, the natural colour one or the B&W image. So I posted them both and will let my readers comment.


Went to a small convention this weekend. Nothing to write home about really, spent most of the time in the hotel bar, with friends. Though I don't drink, I do appreciate the look of a well stocked bar. I snapped off some images and I've posted a few here.
Obviously I've added some to the picture, mainly, a soft digital frame around the bottles. I felt the picture was missing something, and although the frame isn't what I was looking for, I deemed it close enough.

I wished I was able to capture the ferocity of the rain coming down, but the last thing I wanted to do was expose an expensive dSLR to moisture, so I settled for the approach.
Digital image, converted to Black and White (as with the image below) and cropped.


One of the last lines from the first Terminator film was "There's a storm coming."
And how. We got hammered here the past few days, but typical with weather around here, the harder it is, the shorter it lasts. I managed to capture these images of the stormclouds rolling in.
