The Last Post…….of 2017

So this is the last post of 2017. The year photographic speaking did not go to plan. I had so much planned to do ,but some how, life got in the way, note to self, be more selfish with your time, make more me time, and sometimes, sod the rest.

 

I have a few shots planned for January 2018 and with ides already in the melting pot for late, this time still life, well sort of still, but no people involved, sometimes working with models is not all it is cracked up to be.

 

Any way i digress. A few week ago we got a lot of snow, well for the UK it was  a lot, probably for a lot of people out there is was just a light covering. I did allow me some time to capture a few images of our semi-tame squirrel, who we feed on a very regular basis, so below are just a few images of him/her in the garden.

Many thanks and a happy new year to all out there.

A day with the animals

A few years ago I was able to attend a photo shoot at small cats wildlife centre in Hertfordshire.

Not having done this before it was a new adventure and hopefully new skills to add, as well as good images.

The format of the day was to stay with the tutor and listen, take the advice and then get the shoots.

One of the main benefits of doing a shoot like this with no members of the general public about is that you are allowed to ‘go beyond the first line’. So being behind this you are up close to the cage. That extra metre makes a hell of a difference, if you felt the urge you could have put your hand into the enclosure, would have come out with a few fingers missing, so was not tempted to do this.

Being so close enabled me to eliminate the bars of the cage, resulting in a more out in the wild feel to the pictures. Still being mindful that if they wanted to, they could still do damage to you or the equipment.

It was a very good day, with some great experience, if anybody was thinking about attending one of these, then go for it, you will not be disappointed.

Anyway, just a few images from the day are below, enjoy…..
