More than one string to my bow

If you have ever taken the time to look at my FAA website (which is you will see that i am a Landscape photographer and if you have read any of my previous posts you will know that i use photography as a way of getting away from the stresses of being a carer, (wanderings with Chris). I have been very happy looking for suitable landscapes and have thought of myself as a landscape/nature photographer BUT someone once said you should have more than one string to your bow and as i have recently found it difficult getting out with my camera i decided to have a think about what else i could do. Fortunately my daughters friends cat had kittens, i am most deffinatley a cat person so i asked if i could pop round and take some pictures of those cute little kittens. I then decided i didn’t want just any old photo, i wanted CUTE photos, so i took a huge mug, a toy picnic box and various other odds and ends. My first objective was to cuddle those little kitty’s of course ;) and once i had made friends i posed the kittens and took a handful of pictures, had another cuddle, of course, and gave them back to mum. (no kittens/cats were hurt or distressed during the cuddles, i mean shoot).

I really enjoyed this style of photography, not just because of cute kittens but because it didn’t take me far from home, was very enjoyable and i loved the results. That got me to thinking about what else i could try and after a look around i decided i would like to do a study through the next 12 months using a hedgehog door stop my kids had given me. Introducing Mrs. Hedgie and her family.

I take her everywhere looking for suitable situations in which to place her and plan to have enough images in 12 months to make a calender and i hope a children’s book. It should keep me out of trouble for a while and i hope prove a source of entertainment for other hedgehog lovers. Another enjoyable string to my bow and one that i hope will bring in custom to my burgeoning business.


Wouldn’t like to meet one of these without shoes on!

Wood Scorpion

Cercophonius squama, commonly known as the forest scorpion or wood scorpion, is found over much of Australia. It is, however the species of scorpion found in Tasmania.

I opened the door the other morning to find this little fella sitting on the door step.  Photographed with the Olympus EM-10, Olympus Zuiko 60mm f2.8 macro and the Olympus FL-600R (which I’m currently testing and I’ll be writing about it and the Olympus and m4/3 flash system). Exposure 1/30 s at f/8.0 at ISO 3200 aperture priority mode with -1 stop FEC. No animals and more importantly me, were hurt in the making of this photograph.
