Heart Shaped Cookie Cutter

Sometimes inspiration can be found with the most unlikely of subjects!


In this case, a heart shaped cookie cutter is the star.


Different arrangements, with emphasis on shadows, pairing it up with red and green apples, and then changing out the background with some wrapping paper has proved to be most impressive!


Tabletop photography can be simple, entertaining, achieved very easily and without great expense!

Coloured Pencils

Yet another example of things that can be photographed when indoors, through poor weather, unavailability of transport, or whatever the reason.


Coloured pencils!


They can make very interesting photographic subjects and allow for all manner of positioning and compositions, especially when used with a rubber band to keep them in place!

Tabletop Photography

When the weather turns bad, what can you do for photographic pursuits? Tabletop photography, using all manner of things available at easy reach!


Things like cutlery, various plant matter, fruits and vegetables, a dish rack, or even a bracelet can make interesting subjects to capture, offering lots of potential in regards to putting mindful creativity into practice for interesting compositions.


Personally, I love playing with things reflected on shiny or mirrored surfaces.


Here are a few items at play.

Pathways And People In Landscapes

Continuing on with some more of the almost limitless digital photographic explorations available at the park.


This time playing with the themes of people appearing in landscapes, from observational, to posed appearances and also the theme of pathways through landscapes as a means of drawing the eye through a landscape image.


There’s even a couple of photographs that combined the two themes together in very creative ways! Simple themes like this can get all sorts of collaborations happening amongst participants effortlessly, with some wonderful mindful creativity occurring as a result.

Shallow Depth Of Field

Playing with a very simple but effective photographic technique where you use a wide aperture to create a shallow depth of field in a landscape situation.


By having something up close and in focus and the background softly out of focus you can increase the sense of scale in the image quite easily.


It is always interesting to see how different people play and interpret this!
