RegularRandom – Five Minutes with Pens

I’m a stationery addict. There I said it. There’s comfort in knowing that I’m not alone. For this week’s #RegularRandom I decided to spend 5 minutes with my new Zebra Mildliners – (from http://www.bunbougu.com.au) these are seriously cool Japanese pens. I don’t know why Japan has such awesome stationery, but there it is. It is…

The Huangpu River View

I wasĀ in Shanghai last week. It’s such a long flight, it seems so silly to go for such a short time. I left Melbourne on Tuesday morning at 8am and arrived in Shanghai Tuesday night at 10pm Melbourne time – so that’s 14 hours of travel. I spent Wednesday to Friday in a sales meeting…

Client Shoot – Fashion Model – East Elevation

And so we move to location number 3 for the TheaTheos shoot – a little cafe near my place. The cafe is called East Elevation, it does great food and coffee and also, Monsieur Truffle chocolate is made there šŸ™‚ We stopped in here for lunch and also to shoot some closeups of the jewellery…

RegularRandom – Five Minutes with a Silver Pear

Welcome again to #RegularRandom, where we choose and object or scene and spend just five minutes shooting it, trying to see it from multiple angles, learning about how light interacts with the subject. It’s fun, although can be tricky to come up with new things to shoot. We’d love you to join in – just…

Client Shoot – Fashion Model – Rathdowne Village

Location Number 2 for the TheaTheos photoshoot was in lovely Rathdowne Village. The light was gorgeous! I loved this spot and her dress is divine.   Here’s a cheeky couple of candid shots that I loved: She was such a great sport. You can see the first location shoot here. And many more shots on…

Five Minutes with MissGidget

Welcome to another RegularRandom, where we spend just five minutes with a single subject or a frame, shooting from different angles, seeing how the light changes, all the while trying to interfere with our subject as little as possible. It had to happen eventually, you knew I would spend five minutes with Gidget. Here she…

Olympus Macro Comparison – 30mm vs 60mm #RegularRandom

#regularrandomĀ #regularrandomĀ #regularrandomĀ #regularrandomĀ #regularrandom The lovely Jude from The Earth Laughs in Flowers asked if I had compared my two Olympus macro lenses. I recently got the 30mm macro lens after having used the 60mm macro for the last few years. I thought it was a great opportunity to compare the two lenses via our RegularRandom challenge, where…

Macro Flowers (you know me!)

I managed to find some intriguing flowers while we were spottingĀ koalas in Kennet River. I had my new 30mm macro lens on so it seemed like fate! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! x desleyjane

Koalas at Kennet River

Just like last time we went to Lorne, we again went to Kennet River to see if we could spot some koalas in the wild. And we did! This time, my visitor was from the US and he was suitably impressed with these cute little guys. x desleyjane

The Great Ocean Road

I went to a conference in Lorne last week and I decided to drive down earlier on the Sunday and take some photographs on the edge of this beautiful country. It was a day that was waiting for the rain to fall and it eventually fell, but in the meantime I revelled in those cloudy…

Setting Cupcakes on Fire

Note that Julie tells this story very well here. It’s hilarious. Look at this beautiful cupcake. I can’t help it if they call it Bombe Alaska, and make me immediately think of fire! We tried vodka, not our most brilliant idea, but we had heaps of laughs (again check out Julz’ post, she has video!)….
