Ice photography tutorial

I’ve recently spent a lot of time focusing on the technical aspects of my photography. Very often, however, the subject matter is the crucial element of the image and that’s what I have concentrated on with this example of ice photography.

A seasonal example of ice photography. The classic example is to photograph a flower frozen in ice, but I went for something a bit more festive.

Christmas pyjamas, Asda style

If you have young children, you’re probably not expecting much of a lie-in on Christmas morning. When you are woken up ridiculously early by hyper-excited kids, how festive will you look?

Christmas gifts from Samuel Windsor

Just the other day, I had to get ready for a formal event in Central London. An unavoidable last-minute outfit change meant I was scrabbling around for a tie and handkerchiefs. Had I opened a Christmas gift-package that had just arrived from men’s clothing retailer Samuel Windsor, I’d have found both items inside.

Motoring responsibly with the Alcosense Pro digital breathalyser

I hardly need to tell you that drink-driving is irresponsible. With party season on the horizon, it’s good to have reassurance that you’re below the drink drive limit at all times. Having your own breathaylser is one way to achieve this and so I was asked to try out the Alcosense Pro.
