Pyramidal orchid – County flower of the Isle of Wight

Pyramidal orchid

Pyramidal orchid by Jason Swain. Should start by thanking my friend, fellow surfer and photographer Paul Blackley for pointing this one out to me and telling me to bring the macro lens along after surfing today. I would have known it looked pretty, but had no idea it was an Orchid or that it was the County flower of […]


Nigella damascena (Love-in-a-mist)

Love-in-a-mist – Nigella damascena

Back on the floral blog after a long time away and returning to one of my favourite subjects, Love-in-a-mist – Nigella damascena by Jason Swain. I’ve been working so much lately (mostly on event photography) that it seems like its not very often i get to use the camera ‘just for fun’ anymore, but i made some […]


Love-in-a-mist – Nigella damascena

Love-in-a-mist - Nigella damascena

Love-in-a-mist – Nigella damascena by Jason Swain. Something blue to start the week to match the lovely blue skies out there this morning on the Isle of Wight. I collected seeds for these lovely flowers from a roadside verge when i was shooting some of their dried seed-heads last year. Shot using the Canon 100mm f/2.8 […]

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

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. I tried out several lens and lighting combinations, i think the strongest set of shots come from using the 100mm f2.8 canon macro […]


Green Fingers – Caryopteris x clandonensis

Caryopteris x clandonensis

Just a bit of fun with a floral macro of some Caryopteris x clandonensis, shallow DoF and some flypaper textures.

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 […]


50mm of Spring (part 2) Daffodils

Daffodils

By Jason Swain. Second in todays long overdue return to flower photos, again there’s nothing too fancy here, just a couple of humble daffodils, backlit by the early morning sun, shot with a 50mm at f1.2 for a nice shallow depth of field effect. 50mm of Spring part two -Daffodils, originally uploaded by s0ulsurfing. ———————————– […]


50mm of Spring – Daffodil

50mm of Spring - Daffodil

About time i took some more flower photos, nothing too fancy here, just a humble daffodil enjoying the morning sun. Shot with a very shallow DoF on the borrowed 50mm at f1.2, and with a little grain added during post production in Adobe Lightroom. 50mm of Spring – Daffodil, originally uploaded by s0ulsurfing. ———————————– ©2012 Jason […]


Love-in-a-mist – Envy #2

Something a little different this morning, found a few shots taken with the 100mm Canon f2.8 macro of some “Love-in-a-mist” seedpods hanging around in the archives and thought i’d have a little play with the old flypaper textures again and chuck a TTV frame in to complete the look, i’m not exactly sure what that […]


Green with Envy #1

Green with Envy

One of two ‘Green with Envy’ pieces created to be seen / hung together and something a little different this morning. I found a few shots taken with the 100mm Canon f2.8 macro of some “Love-in-a-mist” seedpods hanging around in the archives and thought i’d have a little play with the old flypaper textures again. Then […]


Caryopteris x clandonensis

Caryopteris x clandonensis, originally uploaded by s0ulsurfing. Or heavenly blue as its otherwise known. Because we (northern hemisphere dwellers) all need a little bit of summer in our lives this week. ———————————– ©2011 Jason Swain, All Rights Reserved This image is not available for use on websites, blogs or other media without the explicit written […]
