Conjunction of the Moon, Venus & Jupiter

Conjunction of the Moon, Venus & Jupiter

In a relatively rare event, Venus and Jupiter were both very visible and close to each other in the evening sky, with the Moon passing between them. Cambridge was blessed with clear skies throughout this period, so I was able to photograph the progress of the Moon relative to the two planets, across three nights. Venus is above Jupiter in these photos, which were taken at Castle...

Vancouver Ballerina Shoot with Amanda

Vancouver Ballerina Shoot with Amanda

Become a fan of the Cambridge Ballerina Project on Facebook Before my trip to Vancouver, I looked up some models for potential photoshoots while I was out there. Given I was already planning to do a shoot with my friend Cassandra, I thought why not take arrange another shoot or two and take advantage of some stunning scenery and new models. Due to uncertain weather and my plans...

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Helen

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Helen

I’d done a Cambridge Ballerina Project shoot with Helen in the winter, where she ended up standing on snow for ages without shoes, but she agreed the resulting photos were worth it! This time, it was the end of June, with warm evenings and no more exams, when Cambridge turns into an extravagant black tie party town, so we decided on a May Ball-inspired night-time ballet...

Visiting my alma mater with Ivory Flame

Visiting my alma mater with Ivory Flame

Holly was in Cambridge for a photoshoot, and as we planned to start shooting at dawn, she came up the night before. I showed her around St. John’s college, where I studied, and took a few Instagram meta photos of Holly taking photos with her Hipstamatic iphone. Photos from our shoot the next morning are...

Seven Sisters bathing in Earthshine

Seven Sisters bathing in Earthshine

The 1-day-old moon looked rather pretty at twilight tonight, so I got my mojo on and took some photos from Castle Mound. The very visible Earthshine would have been enough to make for an interesting photo, but the conjunction with the Pleiades (Seven Sisters) seals...

5am on a Misty Morning

5am on a Misty Morning

I left a party at 5am, to find that it was VERY misty and cold outside. Unlike any sane person who would have headed straight to bed, I was feeling inspired about my photography thanks to a new friend, so I went down to the King’s backs to try to get some atmospheric photos. These were taken with my new Canon 50D – the better ones had the camera resting on a bean-bag,...

Playing with Light

Playing with Light

While most of Britain was suffering torrential rain and floods, my friends and I were enjoying fine weather on the Norfolk coast for a weekend camping trip. While sitting round the camp-fire, someone brought out sparklers, which naturally led to people drawing and writing in the dark. I started taking long-exposure photos of these drawings, and then remembered a Strobist blog...
