Arrsers self taken photo collection.

I don't normally like images of flowers, but those are excellent.

How do you do it? Are you willing to give any secrets away?
It is very long winded lol...but starts with the correct lighting, I use a strobe and a 2ftx3ft softbox placed about 18 inches from the subject. The bigger the light source, the softer the light and you are looking at trying to replicate Rembrandt and the style of lighting he used.

It's not often I see a photograph and think "I'd hang that on my wall" but I would with those you posted.

Top work.
 
A bit chilly on the Isle of Wight today, despite some sunshine, with the odd heavy shower thrown in and some stormy skies. This was Yaverland this afternoon.

Jammy sod. WARNING: do not remove the glass or open up the compass. The buggers were painted with radioactive radium. The P4A was common in bombers, Lancs, Sunderlands etc. Have you started to glow in the dark yet?

If you were to open it up the dust from the radium could be released.
Had a 1 pip wonder sit for about 3 hours on a box of defile markers...if he ever managed to sire kids they would have been the milkmans.

I have no intention of doing anything with it other than wipe and wax the box and then put it on display in the House of Tat.

I've already had all the kids I'm going to sire.
What I have now is just for show.

Yes it really was in a skip.
While I was having a nosey round the skip the bloke came out and said "if you see anything you like, help yourself mate".
I came away with that compass, a large wood plane, a junior hacksaw, 2 full bottles of fairy washing up liquid and a full tin of WD40.

I can get in the skip ok its the getting out I have trouble with.

Use to do a lot of taking photos early morning or evening. You may just see the swans.

Beavers built this dam and has caused a lot of damage, raised the the water level upstream by about 10 inches. Trees falling down etc. In the last photo the water rise caused the levy to breach, but instead of waiting for the humans to fix it the beavers did it them selves.
