Day #3351

Day #3351Title: Just Add Porridge
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I bought this set of lovely lacquered spoons, and the washi paper, when I visited Japan in 2012. I’m not sure if the Japanese understand the concept of porridge, but they reminded me of the three bears’ cutlery, just waiting for some steaming porridge to arrive. I also used them for my picture on Day #1881 but they have sat in my props drawer ever since. So I thought I would try a slightly different set up for today’s shot. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #61 – Spoons.

Day #3348Title: Don’t Spill A Drop
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH / Yongnuo YN 560 Speedlite
Notes: I had a frustrating session in the studio today trying to photograph splashes. I was using a different liquid mixture to before, which should have provided a bigger splash, but the kit just wasn’t working as I expected and all I was getting were pathetic little collisions (if anything). Then I started feeling a bit unwell, so gave up. This will have to do – pleasant enough, but not what I was trying to achieve. I will have to have another go in due course.

Day #3338Title: Carnation Deconstruction
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH / Yongnuo YN-14EX Macro Ring Flash
Notes: I bought a bunch of Carnations from the shops yesterday, with the intention of making another Microfleur image. Once the blooms had been in the microwave for a minute or so, they were ready to be taken to the studio for photographing. It’s the first time I’ve tried using the Panny GX8 and 45mm Leica Macro lens with my copystand – they worked every bit as well as the Canon and my 100mm Macro.

Day #3336Title: Orchid Blooms
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: Here are some orchids at Mum & Dad’s, taken during a busy day. I love the patterns on the petals. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #46 – Patterns.

Day #3334Title: The Temperature Is Rising
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH / Yongnuo YN 560 Speedlite
Notes: It’s 15th February, which means one thing to a lot of us serial 365’ers – Galileo‘s Birthday (he was born 453 years ago). Several of us have become accustomed to photographing our Galileo Thermometers in his honour. This is my version for the year. It’s curious to not that the bulb with the colourless liquid in it used to be blue! Not sure what’s happened there, but it has been sitting on my windowsil for ages.

Day #3333Title: Who Stole My Heart?
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / Double Glass Optic 50 mm f/2 / +4 Close Up Lens / Creative Bokeh Kit
Notes: I’ve spent another arduous day tidying again. This time it was the photographic studio (aka box room). It was in a terrible mess, but now it’s pristine again! So to celebrate I made a couple of Valentine’s Day themed images, this one and American Minion Beauty for my Toybox weekly project. Rather pleased with how they both came out. Now all I have to do is keep the studio tidy so it’s easy to make more pictures in future.

Day #3332Title: The Cat Sat On The Mat
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I was contemplating where to go for a picture today, as the sun was out at last. As I was getting ready, I went into the bedroom to find my watch and what did I spy but my blue glass cat, refracting the sunshine perfectly. I quickly grabbed the infinity curve background and made the picture on the spot. A little bit different from my last picture of puss, back on Day #315.
