Morning Mood

Morning Mood

Travelling around the Tasmanian coast. One morning I decided to use my tripod with one camera for a time-lapse. Since I didn't have a second tripod, I decided to still take pictures with my other camera and practice intentional camera movement. This one was my favorite shot. I love the lines and the...

Dragon Slayer

Dragon Slayer

Another photoshoot with a group of friends. We had a wonderful handsome model who makes his own armours. So I ask to go on his knees please. I had in mind to create this image. The dragon is created in DAZ 3D studio. I had to make sure that the dragon is looking in the right direction to make the i...

Dragon Whisperer

Dragon Whisperer

We staged the photo with our model Effie Lmn as if she was stroking a dragon or a horse. I put this scene together in Photoshop with layers of backgrounds, colour adjustments and textures. The dragon is created in DAZ 3D studio.

The Fog

The Fog

We had a photoshoot with our friend and model Effie Lmn. We were using a fog machine and I added some smoke, dust and fabric in photoshop to give it the feeling of our beautiful model floating in the open air surrounded by smoke and a flowing gown.

Don't you wish sometimes you can see the world through children's eyes. I wanted to create a fantasy flower images that all children can love.

In my Garden

In my Garden

Another of my flower images. I used several textures to transform it from a usual nice flower shot to something more. I love the feel I get from the final image.

Awakening

Awakening

A small little yellow flower hidden away in the bush. I didn't want to have a sharp image but wanted to make it more moody with the soft approach.

Yellow Beauty

Yellow Beauty

As you can see in my collection, closeups of flowers are one of my favorites. Again I have taken the soft approach. I have a set of those flowers in my house and I love looking at them.

Burning

Burning

A complete fantasy piece. I watched a tutorial and wanted to create something inspired by the work shown. I used shapes, trees for hair lots of textures, fire brushes and my model is my beautiful granddaughter. When I look at the final product even I can not recognise her anymore.

Dark Forest

Dark Forest

I was inspired by an image I took on my phone (the church in the background). The picture was totally under exposed, there were other building, light and people in the dark. I loved the highlight created by the sun, the dark church and the black trees. So I simplified the image and just left what I...

Lost in Time and Space

Lost in Time and Space

A have a friend who loves to dress up in Romantic Victorian dresses and she loves to be in pictures. But what she loves even more is to see my final product. I have used in this image my model, flowers I took at weddings or in gardens. There is a statue and a watch hidden in the middle of the flower...

Vespa in Town

Vespa in Town

One of the countries I would like to explore is Italy. This image is completely put together. I have used three or four images, a scanned newspaper image, written word textures, a variety of other textures, flourishes, scratches and frames. I am excited about the end result. I love the overall tonin...

Homebush Shipwreck

Homebush Shipwreck

This shipwreck can be found not far from where I live. I used photoshop to bring out textures, colour and the mood. For me it looks very relaxing, surreal and inviting.

Herbie goes to Bondi

Herbie goes to Bondi

I got myself a toy car. That car for me represents all that I love. It is a VW - I originate from Germany - German car. The surfboard in the car is my Australian part. I live in Australia since 1985 and I love it. For a while I used my Herbie in some of my signature shots. I named my car Herbie afte...

Triceratops With Baby

Triceratops With Baby

I am not that old yet, but I did take this image. We had a couple of years some dinosaur robots. With quite a few steps in the post process I ended up with this image. My kids and grandkids loved it and they have a print in their room.

Morning Surfer

Morning Surfer

I went with friends one early (really early) morning to do a sunrise shot. When we got to the spot there was absolutely no colour. I decided to shoot that morning all my images in high contrast black and white. This shot is one of my favorite shots. So never get disappointed, if one thing doesn't ha...

Snowy Mountains Statues

Snowy Mountains Statues

I went with my husband for a weekend to the Snowy Mountains (Australia, NSW). While he was doing a job I took my car and just let it take me around. I came across these statues, got out of the car and went around and looked at different angles for a while. The owner of that farm must have watched me...

Feeling Great

This is my grand daughter barely recognisable. She loves it. She ask her mum if she could get a hair-do like that next time. My grandchildren are very often my little models. I wouldn't want to sell true photos of them. It is fun to make something completely different out of a photo. It's art and...

Nature Loving Mummy

I can't believe how my beautiful grandson ended up looking like this. I have lots of images of my beautiful grandchildren, but I would never think of selling them. I share them only with a few people and only a few of the images. This one is different. The images does not portray my grandson. Let...
