More Starbucks Pumpkin Heads….

As mentioned previously in an older post, I had to source pumpkin heads for a shoot for Starbucks’ Instagram UK stream for Prescription Agency.

The campaign is now rolling out and here are more of the pictures, I think they are hilarious.

How no one in the background looks bemused I do not know….

That is my friend’s dog, he is a lovely French Bulldog.

“Oh no!” said the pumpkin head to her friend when he told her the latest gossip.

No one seems at all suprised to find such a traveller in their midst.

Autumnal Walks & Sloe Gin

Autumn in all her glory

Today I went on a magical walk with my family in some Berkshire woodlands and captured some stills of autumn looking amazing.  We had a family lunch for my husband’s birthday and then headed out for a long walk.  Here are my beautiful girls who happily pottered with me and also took photographs.

The clocks changed last night, and it really felt like we are heading for winter with a nip in the air and clear skies.  This year the leaves are magical; holding onto the trees for as long as they can and turning the most amazing colours.

Ice in photography

This morning I woke up very early to a huge frost, everything was blanketed in it and looked fuzzy with ice, and then the sun started to shine.  It looked amazing.  So I rushed outside, (coat over dressing gown plus hat etc – probably made my neighbours wonder what on earth was going on if they did see me crawling around in the flower beds), and I took some pictures.  Here is one:

I could not really go any more macro on shots with the basic camera and lens I was using, so decided to investigate what lens would work.  Along my googling journey I came across these stunning close ups of Ice by Oystein Johnsen.

I also found a large collection of ice macro shots by various photographers on Gizmodo, all amazing.  This page is also really handy for lens information as the photographers discuss how they took the shot and with what cameras and lenses.
