One more colour image of the calla lily Tim found in a laneway last week. I could take endless photos of these flowers – I love their delicacy and seeming-simplicity, yet there’s a robustness and complexity to them too.

What do you think? Are you as captivated by these flowers as I am?

I’d been looking for calla lilies for a few days when Tim spotted some in a laneway on his way to the station.

I had in mind a black and white shot, reminiscent of the beautifully classical work of Robert Mapplethorpe (a very ambitious aim) but when it came time to process the images I found many of the colour ones just as appealing. I’ll get to some of the black and white ones in coming days, but for now, here’s one in colour.

The lines of these flowers are delicate and beautiful, and there’s a sense of movement captured within the image that I particularly like.

Thanks to Tim for lighting this so beautifully.

Robbing the flower of all its colour doesn’t rob it of its beauty – it just allows us to see differently. There’s a lesson in there I’m sure.

A return to some studio work I did a few weeks ago. I love being in the studio – working with lights and light modifiers. It doesn’t matter what the subject of the shoot is, it’s the creative process of getting the light right .. actually, I don’t know if I can explain it in words. I think I might have to let my images speak for themselves.

This is Rel, one of the models supplied on the day. This shot is ‘fashion’ as opposed to portrait, or editorial, or glamour, or beauty. Who knew there were so many styles of photography?
