To borrow the idea of featuring a guestblog picture each week from shutterjunkie… I feature the above picture from shutterjunkie’s webmaster, Jemma Lambert! I would love to feature your pictures here (on a weekly basis if possible) as guestblog entries like this one. Do contact me if you would like to be featured next here so that I can provide you with further details
Picture title: Splish Splash
Name: Jemma Lambert
Location: Huddersfield, UK.
Equipment: Canon EOS 20D, Canon 17-40mm f4 L, Canon 100mm f2.8, Canon 75-300mm, Canon 50mm f1.8, Sigma 24mm f2.8, Lensbaby.
About the image: This image took 350 attempts to get how I wanted it – I used a shot glass to splash water into from a tap. The colours behind the drop were created by some iridescent material I found on the cover of the Guiness Book of Records.
Your favourite subjects: Landscapes, macro, portraiture, nature – pretty much anything
How did you start out in photography? When I bought a basic point and shoot digital camera for a summer holiday in 2001. I’d never had a camera which produced half decent images – but I got some nice sunset shots from this one and I was hooked after that. I started out at uni on a chemistry degree, I then fell in love with photography, but changed degree to do geography. When that also didn’t work out, I finally went with my passion and started a degree in photography. I’m now in my final year, and although it’s been hard work it’s been so worth it
Are there any special themes/ideas that you like to convey in your pictures? I want to create aesthetic images through experimentation in every form of photography.
Do you have any favourite places for taking pictures? Scotland I adore for it’s scenary, cities for their street photography appeal, coastal regions for their beaches – I think everywhere has something that’s unique and potential for imagery.
Apart from your own photoblog, are there any others that you would like to recommend here? So many to mention here, as there are some amazing ones out there – but the obviously wonderful www.chromasia.com and pointsoflight.blogspot.com are ones to mention.
Who would you like to dedicate this entry to? My supportive parents of my switching degrees to photography, and my wonderful other half who bought me my 20D and other equipment!
