Pink Thrift in the West Wight

Pink Thrift in the West Wight

By Jason Swain. A single pink thrift flower on the cliffs above freshwater bay, west wight. Taken with my new, and not so nifty 50mm f1.2 (it weighs about 5 times as much as the 1.8 version) using a shallow dof (f1.4) to isolate the lone flower.

Sea Pinks at Freshwater Bay

Sea Pinks

By Jason Swain. Sea pinks on the cliffs above freshwater bay. This one was taken with the canon 100m f2.8 macro. I’d headed out that day hoping for some lovely sunny shots of the whole place in bloom, but when i got there it was shrouded in sea mist with a weird (but lovely) diffused […]

Lensbaby Sea Holly

Lensbaby Sea Holly

Away from the beach and back to the floral shots again with a Lensbaby Sea Holly (Eryngium maritimum) photo i shot earlier this week. I tried a few lens and lighting combinations on the day, and i think the strongest results come from using the 100mm f2.8 canon macro with a polaroid ringflash hung off […]

Sea Holly Macro

It’s been way too long since I last uploaded any floral shots, so i was really pleased to have a chance to photograph some amazing Sea Holly (Eryngium maritimum) flowers earlier this week.

Backlit Bokeh Wednesday

backlit bokeh

One from the archive shot with the old nifty fifty (Canon 50mm f1.8), i might have to learn to love it again as i’m probably not getting the f1.2 anytime soon. Still the Backlit Bokeh works pretty well here at f1.8 and with decent light the little lens still performs very well. Backlit Bokeh Wednesday, originally uploaded […]

Have yourself a Merry Berry Hipsta Christmas

Have yourself a Merry Berry Hipsta Christmas, originally uploaded by s0ulsurfing. I think i might win a prize for being the last person on flickr to wish everyone a merry christmas? But i’ve been distracted lately, and waiting for inspiration to grab me with my choice of xmas image. I toyed with several ideas and […]
