This is what my boys do with green food colouring . . .just add water.
A while back, I completed a gorgeous shoot for a business named In Good Company, who offer a range of imported linen, tableware decorations and, basically, just lovely things!
I wanted to keep it all quiet until their newsletter was done, dusted and launched and, since it is, I can now finally reveal.
The theme of the tea party set-up was Alice in Wonderland and you can see by the images they went full-out with the styling and props. My first commercial shoot and I absolutely loved it!
More picture on the In Good Company blog.

I am out of the country till Thursday with no access to my emails. If you want to receive a copy of my packages please send an email to email@example.com.
I come back to warm weather on Thursday.
I'm not really blogging, because I have a wedding today. I'm just posting one random shot, of Jay and Sarah, which hardly counts as 'blogging'.
In general, I'm not so good with change (I have a tendency to find a comfort zone and to cling to it for dear life).
It was with this in mind I first agreed to present RE.INVENT with Dror, since public speaking is very much outside my comfort zone.
So, you will understand why I was equally nervous (as I was excited) for RE.INVENT, which was convened at The Forum Homini Hotel, yesterday.
Previewing the participants' websites and blogs beforehand did not help the jitters, as I knew we had some serious talent and amazing photographers lined up for the workshop.
We had such an amazing group in attendance, along with gorgeous models, which were a picture of perfection, Gen worked her little butt off to achieve the images the attendees were striving for.
I can't wait to check out the blogs to see what images were captured yesterday. ...and, if anything, I hope that the participants have picked up, that Dror and I attempt to get picture-perfect photos straight out of camera and use PS/Lightroom purely as a an enhancer.
For the first time ever, I can say I took the least amount of shots on the day, as I was more occupied with questions from the photographers themselves.
Naturally, no post without a pic, so here you are - Just one photograph, which I took demonstrating a point to one of the participants.
The first one developed ......in Lightroom. Yes, I discovered a few tips and also tried my hand at Lightroom.
For all those that attended:
Canon 5D | 24-70 2.8
Settings: Aperture Priority, f 4.5, Iso 400, WB Manual.
Processing: Those gradient things taught by Dror and conservative tweaking of sliders in Lightroom (So conservative that I can not, for the life of me remember). No presets used.
In the second, I used the same image and played around with the "darker side"
