A new week and some new images.

Just a few more abstract sightings from around my garden. It's amazing what there is to be photographed just in your immediate surroundings. My garden is SMALL but the inspiration it supplies is vast. I hope you enjoy them.

Sorry it's been a few days since my last post. But I have been distracted. I do have some good photos to show for it though. Or at least I will do once I have edited them. I am currently trying to get to grips with Adobe Lightroom 3. The work flow is going to be easier I think using this. That is its primary function. As with anything though, it is not perfect, so I won't be ditching Photoshop any-time soon. Here are a couple of images I have edited with Lightroom 3. Wanderings around Aucklan...

Fridays colour is not very colourful

Posted by richard shaw on Thursday, September 9, 2010, In : Image 
This is a close up abstract of a piece of wooden hand rail. The wood naturally turns silvery grey over time and this piece of wood was no exception. I didn't do anything to the image except crop and sharpen. So although it appears a black and white photo it is in fact colour. This one can be found in the Urban Gallery I hope you enjoy and have a good weekend everyone.

Friday Colour

Posted by richard shaw on Thursday, August 19, 2010, In : Image 
It's Friday so lets have some colour today. I have a number of ongoing themes which I will be adding to over the next few months/years. The intention is to make a collection large enough to compose a book of my best works in each of these themes. 

One of those themes is 'Green' a collection of abstracts featuring Green as the prominent colour. So just to wet your appetite a little here are a few images from the collection so far. Have a great weekend everyone.

Oxidised - Green Oil.

Posted by richard shaw on Monday, August 16, 2010, In : Image 
This is an image I took a few years back now but fits well into the oxidised category. It was actually taken at Auckland Zoo. I think it has an environmental message as well as great colours with the lush green grass against the red rusting oil barrel.

About Me

Richard Shaw After being a keen photographer for many years, I have finally found my niche and the courage to share it with the world. Having been bogged down for what seems like an eternity with jobs, money and family life, I found my creativity being stifled. So as I carve out a new life and follow new paths my love of photography and my passion for interesting images is returning. Here are my visions, my apparitions of light - of shape, of colour and texture. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy capturing them.
