January Give Away!

January Give Away Madness!!!!

To be in with a chance to win a print of your choice from January (day 1 through to 31) all you need to do is 'like' my Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Little-Picture-Box/364025543614051) and follow this blog, by clicking the follow button over there on the right!

365 Challenge - Day 31

The end of January is nigh!

And so we end this pretty miserable (weather-wise) with a lovely photo......

Of course we have to get some chalk and start counting down to next year, but you get the idea!

Camera - aperture f/3.2, shutter 1/200 and ISO 200. Post processing, a vignette, a bump in contrast and blue tones.

Thanks so much to everyone who has followed this blog for the last month, please stay with me and help me through the next 11!

365 Challenge - Day 30

Evening all,

Very quick one tonight, I am feeling a touch under the weather.

Fright night once again in the house....ooooooOOOoooo


Scary! Camera - On Lord Velbon (the tripod) with the shutter open for 3 seconds (on a 10second timer to give me time to get the other side of the door - I couldn't be bothered to get the remote out tonight - so lazy!) ISO 200, and aperture f/10. Post processing - I cropped off some of the frame that I didn't want, increased exposure, and drop brightness. Then tweaked the red colour level to make it more....frightening!

(thoughts on sign off tag line...boy I hope I don't chunder tonight)

365 Challenge - Day 29

Evening, almost night!

Today's shots are a mixed bag, hope you enjoy!


 Shot 1 - Yup, it is a bag ass red tractor. A Case tractor to be precise - a friend mine owns it to be even more precise! Camera - I shot in aperture priority mode for this shot - aperture was set to f/2.2, so the camera set the shutter to 1/800. ISO 200. Post processing - quiet heavy on this one. First I bumped the contrast a little, then onto a vignette to lower the blown out sky. Then I added another vignette to darken the other corners too. Finally I played around with the colour curves and added a touch of RGB noise.

Shot 2 - Whilst looking around my friends house that is being renovated at the moment I stumbled across this, a wall covered in sheet music! Camera - back to full manual mode for this shot, with the speed lite pointing up. Shutter 1/200, ISO 200 and aperture f/1.8. Post processing - cropped it, bumped contrast, and added a vignette.

*whistles* I'm lovin' it.

365 Challenge - Day 28

Afternoon blog readers!

Hope the weekend is treating you all well?

I had some time on my own in the house today - so got out all my lighting and backdrop kit to try out some more product photography, as well as trying to get used to using the equipment.


 Shot 1 - Product one, just in! A lovely vase with some fake flowers. Camera - shutter 1/160, ISO 200, and aperture f/13 (unlucky for some) Post processing, just a crop.

 Shot 2 - Another new arrival to the shopping channel, a lovely silver bird. Was sure about this shot, but I love the reflection in it. Camera - as above apart from a small aperture of f/20. Post processing, crop and bump in contrast.

Shot 3 - The latest in technology! put down your iPhone that can do everything under the side, and go back to a handheld piece of hardware that does one thing only, you know it makes sense. Camera - as above. Post processing, lots of tidying up to get the background really white (the muslin backdrop I have leaves a horrible texture if you don't blow it out with light properly. You can see it in the shadows)

Let's crack open a beer.

365 Challenge - Day 27

Oh look at this....it's only the bloody weekend!


Very cold and icy this morning in ol' blighty. My car was iced over.....photographic opportunity? I think so!


Shot 1 - All these photos are taken from inside my car, while it was warming up. Camera - shutter 1/500, aperture f/1.8, and ISO 200. Post, added a vignette, bump the exposure and the contrast.

Shot 2 - Took this by chance really, but on review I like it, something pleasing to my eye. Camera - same as above. Post processing, just a bump in contrast and exposure.

Shot 3 - Another look out of the windscreen. Camera setup as above except a faster shutter speed of 1/640. post processing, vignette, and exposure and contrast bump.

(thoughts on sign off tag line....I just had spag bol)

365 Challenge - Day 26

Evening folks.

I have been thinking about a Star Wars marathon this weekend.

Day 26 is sponsored by R2-D2.


Shot 1 - I used my fireplace here for the setting (not really sure why, but I do like the brown colours) For the light source I used the torch app on my phone - I felt a flash gun would have lit up too much, and wanted that nice vignette effect around him. Camera set up - Shutter 1/25, ISO 200, aperture 200. Post processing, a little crop, drop in exposure, bump in contrast and colour.

Shot 2 - Looks very much the same as above (except the black and white bit) but it is a separate shot! Camera - as above except shutter 1/40 (tried to get more detail in the white body - it's very blown out). Post processing - little crop, and bump contrast.

May the force be with you.
(thoughts on sign off tag line....love it!)

365 Challenge - Day 25

Evening all,

Wanted to inject a little bit of colour into the blog today.

Want colourful pictures + make up crazy fiancee =

 Shot 1 - Selected the most colourful vanishes, setup a little white background and lined up the colours in some kind of order. Camera - flash gun was set to fire against the background, and the pop up flash to fill in. Shutter at 1/200, aperture f/5.3, and ISO 200. Post processing, a crop, bump in colour and contrast. I also tidied up some of the labels that were still showing.

Shot 2 - Move the colours into a semi circle of sorts. Camera was the same as above. Post processing, crop and a bump in colour and contrast.

Not overly happy with tonight's shots, BUT I did say this was a 'warts and all' challenge, so here they are!

Take care.
(thoughts on sign off tag line.....meh, running out now)

January give away!

Hey me again

Very quick post to everyone that reads this blog.

As a way to say thank you for following me I will be doing a little prize giveaway at the end of the month. You could be in for a chance to win a free print of one of the pictures I have taken during the month of January.

More details to follow soon - so please keep checking back to be in with a chance to win!



365 Challenge - Day 24

Well hello there.

I hope everyone is ok tonight? I can't stop sneezing at the moment. Damn nose. Man flu cometh.

Anyway you didn't come all this way just to read about the workings of my nose, did you?! No, I hear you scream, I did not. You came here for some photos, and photos you shall have.

I held the world in my hand this evening.


Shot 1 - I have this paper weight that is in the shape of the world, with rough outlines of all the continents. Ali (fiancee) gave me an idea to use it tonight, using the flash gun through it somehow. As I was setting up I thought....how about I hold it?! Boom. Camera (on tripod) - shutter 2seconds (to give me time to manually fire the flash)  aperture of f/22 (so as not to let too much light in, especially any ambient light) and ISO 200. I held the flash to one side of hand in this shot. Post processing - a crop, bump in contrast to get the black really black, a little darkening around my wrist to try and balance out the black on the right hand side, and I cleaned up some bits and bobs on the globe itself.

Shot 2 - Setup exactly as above with the exception of where the flash was held - in this shot it is directly above the globe. Post processing - crop, and cleaned up a little bit on the globe (some odd light refraction's)

I think this globe may have more to offer in the future - so watch this space!

Yeeeeee Har.

365 Challenge - Day 23

Evening all!

So normal service is resuming tonight. Materials used tonight.....a pink carnation and a green glass bowl.

Shot 1 - I filled the bowl up with a little water, ripped the carnation off the stalk, and set it floating. I jumped on a chair to get high above it to be able to look straight down. Camera - I had the speed lite on the camera pointing up to the ceiling, shutter 1/80, aperture f/10, and ISO 200. Post processing - increased the contrast and colour, and added a very slight vignette.

Shot 2 - Went for a different angle here, as you can see. Camera same as above expect I had opened the aperture up a bit to f/5. Post processing - Same as above again, with a crop too.

Right, I am off to have some dinner....tuna salad. Very healthy!

Sleep tight.
(thoughts on sign off tag line....only works if you're going to sleep)

365 Challenge - Day 20


Tonight has been a bit of a rush - trying to get ready for my sisters 30th birthday celebrations this weekend. Lot's of tidying the house this evening, while also trying to play with the lighting kit. So a mixed bag of shots tonight. The lovely fiancee, and a little woofer called Stella.


Shot 1 - The lovely Ali. we were mucking around with the black backdrop and one flash light. Camera aperture f/11, shutter 1/160 and ISO 200. Post processing - turn to black and white, and a crop

Shot 2 - This is Stella, say hello to her! Camera -shutter 1/200, ISO 200, and aperture of f/2.2. Post processing, I finally tried my hand at adding a vignette. Also a crop.

Shot 3 - Cheeky little woofer. Camera - shutter 1/160, aperture of f/2, and ISO 200. Post processing, black and white, crop and another vignette!

Hope you all have a wicked weekend - get ready for some party pictures!!

365 Challenge - Day 19


I panicked a bit tonight....what the hell to shoot today?! Then I thought.....scary photos. With light. And my ugly mug. Lovely.


Here you have it, 5 of me! With a 'scary' face in the middle. This is one exposure - I used the torch app on my phone as the light source and held it under my face. I used a combination of my hand and a sock to block the light while I moved positions. Camera - setup on the tripod, set to remote shutter control (total exposure time was 28.6 seconds), and aperture of f/16, ISO 100. Post processing....a lot (see original below) First I adjusted the exposure to darken the shadows as much as possible without losing too much light in the faces. I then bumped the contrast. After that I cropped the hell out of it, and removed the light that had caught the bottom of my ear lobs, eyes, and jacket zip etc (you can see what I mean in the original photo) last but not least I increased the shadows to finally make it fully back (as far as I could see) and a little bump in highlights to bring out the faces.

The original - I have bumped the exposure up on this so you can see more detail. You can see where my hand was positioned to light my face. I like this picture as it has a much more ghostly feel to it, as you can see through me (which is down to the light hitting the wall behind me in all the positions I stood in)

Don't have nightmares.
(thoughts on sign off tag line...I scared myself a little doing this shoot, so I shouldn't joke)

365 Challenge - Day 18

Evening all!

So I showed another side of me in the guitar photos a few days back, so tonight I am going to show another side to me.....my gaming side.

By day I masquerade as an assistant producer at a games studio, Frontier Developments. This evening I switched on the PlayStation 3, and asked the control pad to 'work it'.


Shot 1 - I set the pad up on top of my tripod that was in front of the TV. I switched on the PlayStation and went to the 'theme' settings, where I can change the colour of the XMB. As you can see I set it to red in this shot. Camera - aperture f/2.2, shutter 1/160, and ISO 200. I had my speed lite pointing up, to bounce off the ceiling. Lovely! Post processing - a big crop, I filled in some lighter background that had bled in on the lower right corner, bumped up the contrast and colour.

Shot 2 - As you can see here I set the PlayStation to blue. Camera - f/1.8, shutter 1/40, ISO 400. No flash this time. Post - Crop, had to straighten it up a little, bumped up the contrast and colour again.

365 Challenge - Day 17

Well here we are, day 17. And it is beautiful!

Fantastic sunrise this morning, the sky was amazing. It was only right that I try to capture it. I think my neighbour got a shock with me bounding out of the door at 7:30am camera in hand, snapping away, while she put out the rubbish. (no 'stalker in a bush' jokes please, Chris Marsh)


Shot 1 - I just wanted colour, colour, colour!! Simple shot of the sky was all it needed. Camera - ISO 200, shutter 1/80, and aperture f/2.2. post processing, a crop to get rid of some silhouettes.

Shot 2 - Some trees thrown in, I do like the silhouette of objects against skies like these. Camera - same as above except a longer shutter of 1/125. Post processing slight crop to get rid of a little sky that leaked through on the left, and a tint to the top to balance out the dark bottom.

That's all folks!
(thoughts on sign off tag line....looney toons!)

365 Challenge - Day 16

Day 16 in the 365 challenge house....

I play basketball with some guys from work on a Monday night.

Here are the results.....

Shot 1 - The lovely man going for a layup you see here is none other then the very talented Chris Marsh (check his blog out by clicking his name....what technology can do!) Camera - shutter 1/320, ISO 800, and aperture f/1.8. Post processing, turn to black and white, bump in exposure. He scored too.

Shot 2 - I laid on the floor at the far end to where they were practicing layups. Camera setup as above, and same post processing!

Let's do lunch.

365 Challenge - Day 15

Evening all,

Wife to be and myself (with the inlaws) went to see our first possible wedding venue today - Hengrave Hall - so the shots had to come from there....the place is spectacular!

Shot 1 - This the hall itself, of course. Camera was at aperture f/5.6, ISO 200, shutter 1/160. Post processing, crop, turn to black and white, bump in contrast, and a bit a straightening up!

Shot 2 - This is a close up of above the main doors, love the colours here. Camera - f/5.6, ISO 200, shutter 1/80. Post - Slight tweak to saturation to bring out the colours, and a crop.

Shot 3 - This is the hall which main use is for the evening dancing and music. Love the use of modern colour in such  an old building. Camera - ISO 400, aperture f/1.8, shutter 1/320. Post - Bump in saturation.

Shot 4 - A rose on the window sill inside the building, over look the courtyard. Camera - aperture f/2.2, shutter 1/640, ISO 800. Post - turn to black and white, with a colour focus on the rose, and a tint to the top of the frame.

Very excited about the wedding now, wish it was this year!

See ya.

365 Challenge - Day 14

Evening folks.

I have been out to see my great niece today - yes that is right I am a great uncle! Evie, her name is, and she is bloody beautiful! Congratulations to mummy (my niece) Charlotte, and daddy Adam!

Anyway, they also have a dog, Barry.

He is now famous.....

Shot 1 - Barry, or Baz, is such a lovely dog! I love this picture as I never saw his tongue lolling out till I got home - classic Baz. Camera - Speed light pointing straight up to give lovely bounce light, ISO at 200, F/2.2 and shutter at 1/200. Post processing - little jump in contrast and crop.

 Shot 2 - I just wish his eyes were in focus. It's bugging the hell out of me that they are not, but I love this shot so much I included it anyway! Camera setup as above, and post processing, little saturation and crop.

Bye bye everybody, bye bye.
(thoughts on sign off tag line....very kids TV)

365 Challenge - Day 13

Happy Friday 13th!

Unlucky for some. So far today has been fine for me though - hope everyone has is enjoy the start of the weekend!

The lady of the house is out tonight, so it was a dinner for one.

A dinner for one man.

The result.....

Camera was hand held, with the flash held high over head. Shutter set to 1/200, f/22, and ISO 200. Post processing, crop, a little jump to the exposure to make the background more white, and a tint to the top.

Since this photo was taken I have eaten the burger, and drunk the beer. And they both tasted good.

Hope you all have a wicked weekend. 

See you tomorrow.
(thoughts on sign off tag line....well it can be used every day, except 1)

365 Challenge - Day 12

Goooooooooooooood evening!

I just checked the stats of this blog and seems we have quite a worldwide audience! Hits are coming in from as far away as India and Kenya! Hello to everyone! I am pleased to see my blog is doing the rounds and getting hits from all over this wonderful rock of ours.

On to this evenings shot. Flowers. Champagne flute. Flash light.


Shot 1 - I am using one of my dinning room chairs, with a black piece of cloth (in this case my jacket) on the back of it, to stop the reflections (as the chair is leather) The flash was held up above and to the left of the shot as you look at it now. I had a remote shutter release, so set the shutter to 'time' meaning on the first press of the button on the remote the shutter opens, and the second press closes it again. Between the two button presses I manually fired the flash. Camera was on a tripod (with my new love - the 35mm lens) ISo set to 200, exposure was 1.3 seconds and aperture was f/7.1. Post processing - bump in shadows and contrast to darken the background and make it as near black as I could. Oh, and a crop.

Shot 2 - Same as above really, excpet that the flash was aimed directly above the flower. Settings all the same, exposure was 0.769 seconds! Post processing, same as above.

Right I am off to cook some chilli - yum!

You have to go, to come back again.
(Thoughts on sign off tag line.....I quite like it. My mum used to say it to me when I was younger, when I had to go somewhere I didn't want to - like Tesco shopping)

365 Challenge - Day 11

Evening all!

Took some inspiration from my long tongue friend....Bob. He is a cast of a gargoyle from Chester cathedral!

Shot 1 - Bob is hanging up on the chimney breast in my living room, he is a game 'see how many people spot him'! Camera was set at 1/200, ISO 200 and ISO f/2.8. I used onboard flash too (speed lite batteries have run out) Post processing, turn to mono, with a bump to shadows and a little tint to the top of the frame.

Shot 2 - Bob is a great subject to shoot....he never moves. Camera set up as above, and post processing the same too!

Just want to say thanks for reading my blog - means a lot to me!

(thoughts on sign off tag line....simple, but boring)


Other blogs that you must go and see!

Just thought I would drop you all a line before I start my work day to tell you about an awesome blog site. I will call it my sister site (like a classy magazine)


It is my mates blog, Chris Marsh, who is doing the same challenge as me, but with drawings. Please go check it out!

365 Challenge - Day 10

Wooohoooo, double figures!


The new wireless triggering set turned up today, and thankfully it worked. Tonight's pictures are brought to you in conjunction with my new flash heads!

Oh and a little bit of help from Evil Dead 3......

Shot 1  - I setup the Evil Dead figures on the white muslin backdrop that I bought a week ago, with one flash head with a barn door and red filter attached pointed towards the backdrop itself. The other light was pointed more to the foreground. Camera was hand held, with an aperture of f/14, and a shutter speed of 100. ISO was 100. Post processing, cropped, bump to shadows.

Shot 2 - Took the red filter off the flash head, and opened up the barn doors. Camera was set to f/8 (to let more light in to wash the white out) Everything else stayed the same! Post processing, a crop, and a bump to shadows.

I bid thee farewell.

365 Challenge - Day 9

Evening folks

I am very tired today. Played basket ball with work guys for the first time since the Christmas break.....and boy did it hurt!

Anyway - this evenings picture!

I have played around painting with light this evening - interesting results.....

Shot 1 - I  placed a chair at an angle, grabbed my mobile phone, turned on the flash light (torch for all us English folk) and got tracing! Camera was set up on Lord Velbon (the tripod) f/22, and I had the shutter on remote release - I had it open for 18.2 seconds. ISO set to 200, and WB to incandescent to get that electric blue light. Post processing, just converting from RAW to jpeg and a little kick to the shadows.

Shot 2 - Same as above, but you can see here that I have tried to draw a person sitting on the chair. What do you mean you can't see him? He is right there! Camera and post processing same as above (except the shutter was open for 32seconds this time around)

Shot 3 - Some flowers! I was trying to find another interesting object to trace, when I gazed upon this vase with fake flowers in that we have in our blocked up chimney hearth. I [poorly] traced around the vase itself, and gave a little fill to it, then held the light above the flowers for around 5-6 seconds. Only difference to camera was exposure time which for this shot was 18.8 seconds.

So there you go - we are almost into double figures in terms of day number!

Come back soon

365 Challenge - Day 8

Day 8 in the big brother house....I mean, in the 365 challenge house.

Had a massive Sunday lunch this afternoon with family, so I am a massive sloth at the moment. As a result I have turned to things inside my house for inspiration for this evenings photo.

I play guitar as well as snap photos, and I have one guitar which is quite an interesting shape....

I like the shadow that is cast behind the guitar here, achieved by holding the flash off to the side. The colour comes from setting the camera WB to incandescent. Aperture at f/4, shutter at 200, and ISO 200. Post processing a slight jump in shadows.

I wanted to get in close to show the comparison between the pointed headstock of the guitar and it's shadow. Again the colour is due to the WB being set to incandescent. Aperture f/8, shutter 1/200, ISO 200. Post processing, just a bump in shadows.

All this typing has worked off some of my dinner....maybe it's time for tea.

(thoughts on sign off tag line....very English)

365 Challenge - Day 7

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. I know I am, I have a cold Carlsberg and some Akercocke on the speakers. Lovely.

So today was a good day for photography! I ventured out to the old city of Ely to have a look around with my D60 and the 35mm, and I got some very pleasing results. After the disappointment I felt last night after the church yard shoot I really needed a positive spin, and I got it. Thanks Ely!

 Driving into Ely I saw this scene and had to stop to capture it. I grabbed the polarising filter to try and give the rays a bit more contrast (didn't really work) But some post processing made it look, in my opinion, moody, stormy, dark and broody. Lovely in other words. Camera was setup with aperture of f5.6, shutter speed of 1/250, and ISO 200. Post processing - increase in contrast, to darken the sky, and the ground (to remove all the busy things that were actually there) and a little exposure compensation to really bring out the stormy feel.

This little fella (or lady) came over to say hello to me, once I got to Ely. Not sure what kind it is, but it was very short. I like the framing with the fence, but wish I had the eyes in focus, instead of his nose. Camera set to shutter 1/200, f.2, and ISO 200. Post processing, a bump in contrast and saturation.

I love what the sign is saying, and the style in which it was written (I guess it is to do with the horses that were in the field) Camera set to f1.8 to get a nice creamy background, shutter of 1/800 and ISO 200. Post processing, I turned it to mono, and increased the contrast. I also added a tint to the top of the pic.

I found the shape of this lamp against the sky very pleasing to the eye. Bold and simple. Camera set to f.5, shutter at 1/640, and ISO 200. Post processing, a bump in contrast to wash the lamp out in black and a tint to the top of the frame.

Ely used to be a big fishing town, back in the day. And yeah you guessed it, made a lot of trade in eels. In one of the parks they have a sculpture of an abstract eel. I knew I had to get a shot of it. Turned out to be rather difficult to get a shot I liked. In the end I found this one rather nice, following the abstract form of the sculpture itself. Camera set to f.2, shutter at 1/2000, ISO 200. Post processing, a bump in saturation to bring out the blue in the sky.

Middle of the day, and the lamp was on. Just asking to be photographed. I agreed. I love the light that shines on the tendrils of the tree the lamp was placed under. Camera set to 1/1600, f2 and ISO 200. Little bump in saturation in post processing was all.

Found this under a railway bridge that spanned the river in the Ely. I love the rusty colour against the green. Camera set to 1/40, f1.8 (it was very dark under the bridge) and ISO 200. Post processing, bump in saturation to really bring out the colours that I like in it.

 Who the bloody hell is this? Oh yeah, it's me. I liked that I am only in the center strip of the photo, and I just thought it was a bit kookie, so there you go. Camera 1/100, f2.2, ISO 200. Post processing a bump in saturation, and I had to straighten it up a touch.

Just want to say thanks for sticking with me the week so far, I appreciate it very much.

Stay safe
(Thoughts on sign off tag line.....bit like a safety warning)
