Finally going public in a Gallery, Photographically!

Before Christmas, two artist friends asked, if I would like to join them, hiring a gallery to show my work.

Well….  I had to take on the challenge, having never shown any of my work before.  My photography has always been a hobby and private, focusing mostly on friends and family, with the arty creative stuff, always taking the back seat.

The Tunnel Gallery, at the Tonbridge School has been booked and the race is on!

We (Tiz Bell-Richards, Scott Heasmer and I) shall be showing the week of the beginning the 21st of March 2016 through Easter to the the 28th March, Easter Monday.

Tiz specialises in very detailed illustrative artwork –

Scott’s speciality is larger abstract work that captures the imagination.

My speciality is “the new to me”, i.e. I like to experiment, rather than try to reproduce photos already produced, and that’s no mean feat, now everyone’s got a camera!

One theme I shall be displaying is “Driving Light” –  a slight twist on light painting, in that the camera is moving, as are some of the lights, whilst driving.  I love this form of photography, as, whilst digital, it still gives you the “what will that look like” moment.





Fireworks at St John’s 2015

Took the camera to take a few shots of this years Fireworks display at St John’s School Tunbridge Wells.

This is the 3rd year of them running the show, and it’s great.  Thankfully the rain faded away in time and the display provided some lovely shots.

I was planning to experiment with taking shots whilst moving out of focus to get some images of firework trails moving from crisp focus to lovely blotchy soft edges, but for whatever reason, I couldn’t get it right!  Will have to try next year.

Here’s my favourites from the evening, taken with a Canon 70D and the 18-135mm zoom (and a tripod, of course 🙂 )
