    In part due to Laura Barsi’s invite to a Flickr group and to spur me to use my camera more (it wasnt used for over a month) I have decided to undertake a 52 Week Project in 2024.

    Its been 10 years since I did the last one so feel its time again to go for it. The old album can be found here – https://www.flickr.com/photos/8182614@N08/albums/72157632690537941/

    And the first shot (taken at work after seeing this interesting plant) is below:

    Week 02/52 – Decided for a self portrait this week. Two strobes with gels on (free from Lee Filters) using the popular orange/teal combo and used my reflector for some background detail.

    Well done Paul brilliant start. I’m gonna try and do something other than wildlife but I find it hard to break away

    There’s no issue focusing on a wildlife-only 52 week project though? Im more of a jack-of-all-trades tog so mine are totally random.

    Week 03-52 – 3 Donuts. The lowest donut was propped up with a cocktail stick. The other two are held up with kebab skewers which I then removed. Had a softbox to the right and a speedlight to the rear left. Finished by sprinkling sugar which I added in on separate layers.

    Week 04/52 – Went to Canary Wharf to enjoy the Winter Lights festival. Took lots of shots so decided on a triptych to show some of the items on display. Well worth a visit!

    Week 05/52 – Went for a surreal image this week using fruit and tieing them together like balloons. Had to ensure there was a reflector on the floor to bouce light back up to hit the “top” of the fruits. Interesting challenge to think upside down. Also flipped the bow as well to maintain the illusion.

    Week 06/52 – With a recent feline addition I went for a family portrait this week. Used a softbox behind and just in front of each portrait to let light fall on nearside of face.

    Week 07/52 – Great opportunity to capture crocuses this week. Even better that they are in our garden so could pick the brief moment the sun was out to capture them open!

    Week 08/52 – Went to a farm shop and bought these carrots with their stems still on. So decided to try to arrange them in a pleasing format and went for a square crop.
