Photography: What Happened to the Plaster Image Transfers?

See the original post here for ‘how to’: Photography: Image Transfers onto Plaster Earlier this year I experimented with transferring some images onto plaster. I printed the images using a laser printer, coated them with acrylic gel, and transferred them onto a plaster surface. As planned, I kept them outside for the summer. They have…

Out and About: Salisbury Cathedral, Wiltshire

It was visiting Salisbury that originally convinced me that I could live without London; it really is a beautiful place. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve visited the cathedral over the years. Sometimes I’m there as a tourist to take photos, see the Magna Carta, eat in the cafe which spills out…

Photography: Beach Cycling

These images were taken on 28th March 2019 on a cycle from Sandbanks in Poole to Bournemouth Pier, using an iPhone 8+ and a Fujifilm XT-2 with a cheap Meike wide angle lens. Mainly unedited at the moment, they represent a mixture of success and failure – I think it’s important to show both!
