I love it, though if I were to be super critical the light is a little too top heavy, it needs a little splash on her shoulder to bring...

What do you do when a loved one’s birthday is coming up and you have no idea what to get them?

Me I run around in a blind panic until my head hits something hard.

Once I’ve come to, I take a look online for inspiration. While doing that and being a typical artist I got distracted. Seeing that there are a million “how to” videos online I thought, well, why not knock something up as a double exposure one of the examples given was a fox and some trees. I can get back to the birthday present in a minute.

I’m not the first person to do this and certainly will not be the last given the Youtube page had over 100,000 views.

The difference being I do not normally use other peoples photographs in my arty stuff, but as I am no where near any mountains and would not have the patience for waiting around until a fox came by (which in France would be a miracle) I thought, why not go onto Unsplash and use the Copyright Free images there.

Seems odd me doing this but hey, I’ll try anything at least once.

Still cannot get my head around the images on that site or why people like to give away perfectly lovely images for free. Well that’s not my fault, so why not make use of them as that’s what they have been posted for.

I have credited the artists after all, which is not even a requirement of the site, I did it to show credit where it is due.

I hope you like it.

Look Out
Where: Aujac – France,
When: 6pm, 28-10-2017
With What: Hasselblad 555ELD, CFV39, 80mm f2.8,@ f2.8, 250th Sec
Touched up with: CS6, Nik Software

This is an end of era shot.

My daughter announced that this is apparently the last time I am allowed to take a picture of her and also the last time she would wear that dress.
It took three months to even get her to come outside in the afternoon heat, let alone the 2 hours it took to convince her that it would be a nice and more importantly, a quick experience. I had an idea for one shot I told her.

She seemed to enjoy the 15 minutes I spent taken some shots.

This was before I realised she was still too short for the wall to really see over.
So I grabbed some books and helped her up on top of them so she could see over the wall a bit better.
Fletcher then came back into the shot to see what I was up to and why our daughter was now looking over a wall as some sort of Look Out. He dutifully helped with the other shots, which I will post later.
The other dog we are looking after also came into a few of the shots but was certainly less animated preferring to lie down and sleep instead of looking like a guard dog which was the intention.
I took shots with the two dogs, then some with our dog Fletcher and then our daughter on her own.
I could not decide which to publish so will published them all after this one, which incidentally is my daughters favourite.

I hope you like it.

Stitched background to make image larger, then central image with dog and Girl added to it.

Then put into photoshop put a signature on it.

Looking Forward

Where: Hicklinge, Sweden
What: Lake
When: May 2017, 19:02
With What: Hasselblad 555ELD & CFV 39, Zeiss 80mm C Lens, tripod, 80th Sec, f5.6, iso 100 with Hahnel Giga T Pro with DIY modified cable and remote.

This is one shot from about thirty I took on this evening to test my new (to me) Hasselblad back. The sun was setting and harsh as there was barely any clouds.
The water was quite warm in comparison to only the month before, which still had bits of floating ice dotted around on it.

The idea behind it was to have a shot with myself and my trusty dog Fletcher both in the water looking out into the lake. This proved much more difficult to achieve. Fletcher, who loves the water and never misses a chance to be in it, even if it is a small ditch of scummy water seemed to get freaked out that I was fully clothed and was walking out into the lake on my own.

He sat by the edge of the lake and whined for my return.

No matter how much coaxing on my part, he would not follow me into the lake. Stupidly I had not brought a ball with me as he would have followed me anywhere. So I ended up carrying him out a short distance to where his feet still touched the ground and tried to take some photos.

He at this point was only interested in trying to get on top of me and get out of the water. So for some time there was a lot of wrestling and resistance on both sides, neither of us wanting to concede.
Needless to say the ripples and waves caused in all this commotion was not great for the picture I had in my mind, so I basically gave up trying to include him in the shots.

I will post a shot, or two, of the best of those attempts later. This is one of the ones without him.

I am looking forward to attempting this again when I go back to Sweden with Fletcher, hopefully this year.

I hope you like it.

Shoved into Photoshop, 6 stitches added to extended a single shot in the middle then a signature shoved on it.

How do you do?

Where: Nettledon, Hertfordshire
When: 8.01am, 03-03-2018
With What: Hasselblad 555ELD, CFV39, 80mm f2.8,@ f2.8, 150th Sec
Touched up with: Lightroom, CS6, Nik Software

As you might be able to see from the image, this location is in a dip, it is surrounded by high hills and is almost inaccessible by car, especially a car without snow tyres.

I initially tried to get to it over one of the hill roads, but after 15 attempts I was about to give up, I tried gain at a long run up, but I could never get past the mid point of the hill before I had to slid back down the hill backwards.

On the last attempt, I got about a further 10 feet up the road past the previous tyre spinning tracks I’d left behind. Stopped in frustration I muttered to myself that I had to find another route to the location before the mist lifted. With all the exertion the windows were fogging up quicker than the cold air from the car vents could clear them. I leant over to consult the charging iPhones GPS on the passenger seat to see which road in to the scene would be the flattest.

Almost at the same time, a darkened figure in the shape of an person rapped on the window of the car. Startled, I jumped and hit my head on the roof of the car. Thankfully I did not swear.
I gingerly wound down the fogged up window to be met with an elderly vicar in his pyjamas, who spoke with a very posh sounding accent and with the greeting of “How Do You Do?”.

Still shaken, I stammered, "er very well, and you?’

He looked at me as if to say something else but stopped himself short to say, “may I be of assistance?”.

With a little more composure, I explained I was trying to get to a particular location over the hill I was desperately trying to drive over to take some photographs of a tree and scene on the other side.

He looked at me, then looked at the road and multitude of skidded tyre marks I’d left and said, do you know your proverbs?
I looked blankly at him. With a withering stare he muttered “That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous, because this one is blocked by snow, if you had not noticed?”. “go down the hill and take a right, then second right and ye shall find your salvation.”

“Er, Ok, thank you?” I said.

I managed to reverse back down the hill with the slowly clearing windows from the slowly warming car and took the route he suggested. I found the roads to be flat and clear to the the tree. Perfect.

I spent the next 40 minutes taking as many photos as possible, this is one of them.

I hope you like it.

Edited in Lightroom and put into photoshop and a signature shoved on it.

Now you see it

Where: Dagnall, Hertfordshire
When: 7.32am, 03-03-2018
With What: Hasselblad 555ELD, CFV39, 80mm f2.8,@ f2.8, 150th Sec
Touched up with: Lightroom, CS6, Nik Software

This shot has a similarity to my life at present.

For example, the snow in the south of the UK is a rare thing and especially in land locked Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire which is surrounded by the Chilterns Hills. It seems to have it’s own micro climate and and never really matches up to what the weather people say it’s going to do in this region.

So you have to be quick to catch it when it comes. Thankfully I had brought my camera, and luckily I had just fixed up the suspension on the car the day before, so I ventured out to grab some shots. This being one of them.

By the end of the day it had already started to rain and this scene, for this year, had gone forever.

You may be wondering why this shot is similar to my life at present.
Well, only a day after I took this picture I went into hospital for a looooong awaited (many times cancelled at the last minute) Tonsillectomy.
I took a picture of the prior to the operation and the very next day, to see the difference, now they were gone. It was certainly a horror show back there.

I am now on day 10 of the recovery and am in a slight amount of pain, but would not wish the first 7 days of the recovery period on anyone.

So like the snow in the UK and my tonsils, it’s a case of – Now you see it, Now you don’t.

I hope you like it.
