With five weeks to go before the start of the Christmas Market season, I am busy ordering lots of new stock to sell on my stall. I have been focusing on my single flowers on a black background as the main theme for my stock. I like how they all link together and yet are very distinctive and individual.
This year I thought I would try a new range of products and have ordered fridge magnets featuring my flower photographs. I think they look great and will make great stocker fillers, giving people an opportunity to enjoy the flowers without having to buy a print or canvas.
So this afternoon I decided to photograph the collection on my fridge at home to get an idea of what they would look like in the home environment:
Magnets are not currently available through my Redbubble site, so anyone who is interested will need to come and visit me at one of my stalls this November. For more information and to keep up to date with events I am attending please like and follow me on Facebook.
UPDATE : Magnets are now available to buy direct from my Facebook page – just scroll down to the Facebook shop section on my photography page!

Last month I entered a couple of my photographs into the ephotozine monthly competition. The theme for June was “flowers” so my high key floral images seemed like the perfect choice.
This week I discovered that one of my images, the high key single tulip flower, was chosen to be one of 20 winners. It was very exciting to receive the email letting me know I was one of the winners.
I also enjoy scrolling through the other entries into the competition to see all the other interpretations of the theme. Looking at the other shortlisted entries made me very proud of my achievements too, as there were some very impressive images.
You can take a look at the competition page showing all the winning floral images here.
Last week I shared my floral dress collection and was overwhelmed by the great response and lovely comments I received. So thank you all so much for that, it is really appreciated!
Following on from this I thought I would share a different product from my florals range. Using the same flower photographs but this time applied to a vest or tank top. This tanks have a slight sheer silky chiffon front panel, with a soft jersey back panel creating a loose flowing fit top.
This range can also be purchased from my RedBubble shop. The great thing with shopping with RedBubble is that they have a great returns policy, so you can rest assured knowing that should the item not meet your expectations they will refund or replace. This is brilliant considering you are buying unique bespoke clothing!
I have been having a play around with some high key still life photography. I chose some tulips and carnation flowers as my subjects and set them against a white background. I used a photography light tent, and lit the scene using a couple of powerful lamps.
It took a while to set the correct level of light in order to light the subject well without blowing out the whites or creating distracting shadows.
One of my favourite images from this series was of a single tulip. I love the way the colours look even more vivid against the plain white background. I was very pleased to hear this week that this image was awarded a bronze bar from the Guild of Photographers, taking my total up to 5 bronze awards this year.
I had also previously selected this image to feature on a number of products in my RedBubble shop.
I felt the simple, yet beautiful nature of this single flower lent itself wonderfully to the photo products available. These can be viewed here.
I am loving spring! With the longer sunny days and the colourful spring flowers it really is my favourite season. It has inspired me to capture photographs of some colourful flowers. I Wanted to try and get something a little different so I have been photographing single flowers and playing around with the colours.
I am enjoying the results, so much so i have uploaded some new images to my Redbubble site. This site allows my images to be printed onto a wide range of products, from gift cards and stickers, to clocks and clothing. Some of my floral designs can be viewed here.
I particularly enjoyed playing with this tulip image and adding the different effects on it. I thought I would share a couple of the designs with you here. In the first image I decided to remove the colour to create a sepia tone. As it is colour that is normally associated with flowers I thought it would be interesting to see how it would look with the it removed. I think it produces an unusual and dramatic image.
I also removed the background colour to the image to create a .PNG. This has allowed me to upload just the image of the flower which can be purchased as a cut out sticker, as shown in this image below.
