Cosmos

Emma Booysen Photography

My friend Jana loves Cosmos flowers and loves doing crafts with images of Cosmos. On my attempt to capture Cosmos photos, I had one lucky shot with a bee on the flower.

Fairy

The previous image of raindrops inspired this photo of a fairy capturing a raindrop. Micky was the model for this shoot which was captured in studio. All the plants was captured in my garden.

Fishing Village

Emma Booysen Photography

I have photographed this scene from a fishing village in Cambodia. We took a boat trip through the fishing village. It is always interesting to observe people and their life styles.

Flower Dome

The flower dome was listed as the largest glass greenhouse in the world as listed in the Guinness World Records 2015 and hosts flowers and plants from the Mediterranean and semi-arid regions. Changing displays are also done to reflect different seasons and festivals.

Marina Bay Sands

Emma Booysen Photography

I have done many photos of the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore during night time, therefore I want to share some day time photos as well. I usually stroll around the gardens at the Marina Bay Sands before sunset, thereafter I enjoy doing night scapes.

Symmetry

Emma Booysen Photography

Symmetry was also one of the set subjects at the camera club. I have decided to apply it to a studio shot. Sanelle was the model for this experiment.

Winter Shoot

Emma Booysen Photography

I have experimented with Photoshop to create some fake snow. How ironic that Summer (my assistant) was the model for the winter shoot.

Phuket Sunset

Any beach will always remain some of my favorite places. Sunsets are also a beautiful time of the day. On a lucky day like this one the colors were so warm and vibrant.

Clouds

Emma Booysen Photography

This time of the year we usually go on our annual leave. We were planning a trip to Singapore, however our plans changed due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Wishing we could be flying abroad, I am sharing this image of a sunrise over the ocean, taken from the plane of one of our international flights.

Door Handle

Emma Booysen Photography

The set subject for this month at the camera club was: door handle and it neede to be processed in monochrome.

Fairy

Emma Booysen Photography

I did many photos in the UK of forests and mushrooms. Many of the forests look like they could have fairies living there. Therefore I created a fairy forest in Photoshop. Micky was the fairy.

The Shard

Emma Booysen Photography

The Shard is a 95-Storey building in London. I took this image from a ferry on river Thames, during mid day. Mid day is not always the best time to take photos, but luckily the clouds on that day helped to create a dramatic look.

Composite

Emma Booysen Photography

A composite is the combination of multiple photos. This one is a combination of a forest I photographed in the UK and one of my studio shoots.

Playing Guitar

Emma Booysen Photography

During the music photo shoot, I also took photos for the set subject at the camera club. The set subject for which I took this image was "hands".

Violinist

Emma Booysen Photography

I did music themed photo shoot during last year for an audio visual project. I was fortunate that Sharon de Kock, who is a violinist from the Odeon string quartet, participated in the music photo shoot.

Pinterest

Rex & Micky

Emma Booysen Photography

At the Bloemfontein Camera Club there is a set subject every month. One of the set subjects was pet interaction, where I photographed my dog Rex with my assistant Micky. Micky is really fond of animals.

Twobar Clownfish

Emma Booysen Photography

My photography as a hobby started underwater. It is an amazing, different, colorful world underwater. We have done many dives at Aliwal shoal, Umkomaas where I have captured this twobar clownfish.

Time

Emma Booysen Photography

It has been a long time since my last post. Everybody, including myself, are always busy. We are now entering a new time period. Some people may experience that it will be more busy (medical staff, emergency staff, scientists, etc.). Others may experience "we don't know what to do" with the time. We have entered a 21 day lock down period from 00:00 to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus. For myself I am going to try again to share my images. Enjoy the journey with me.
