Getting Creative on the Kitchen Table

Creative Table Top Photography

I had the pleasure of interviewing a very talented photographer just recently on my podcast (Tog-Talk).

Helen Davies is only a few miles from where I live in Hampshire and she has earned quite a name for herself for her stunning images created on her kitchen table.

From colourful, stylish water droplets to beautifully stunning images with spoons, lightbulbs and sparklers, Helen has been impressing me for a couple of years now, as she beavers away in her kitchen, producing elegent masterpieces, many of which are quite simply, jaw-dropping.

As Helen spoke to me in the Tog-Talk studio, I immeidately knew that I would have to post some of her images on this site.  The Photography Teacher blog has never featured another photographer before, but Helen has a lot to offer and beneath her quiet, unassuming charm, is a gifted individual who takes her art seriously.

But I urge you to take a look at these photos first.  You’ll want to know more.

Helen has kindly given links to her Flickr & Facebook pages, for anyone who wants to see more

Want to know more about Hampshire School of Photography?

Hampshire School of Photography (HSP)
Hampshire School of Photography is based in Fleet, Hampshire, on the border with Berkshire and Surrey.

Its wide ranging curriculum teaches photography to enthusiasts at all levels – from complete beginners and advanced amateurs, through to those who want to go professional.

It does this through workshops and year-long courses that provide solid foundations in (amongst other things): photography theory, composition, portrait & landscape photography, working with flash, macro photography and editing in Lightroom and Photoshop.  Some of our courses go even deeper… to stretch students with challenging assignments, forcing them out of their comfort zones.

Founder of HSP, Kevin Ahronson, also offers private mentoring to a small number of people each year, as his busy schedule allows.

New to Photography?

If you are new to photography and you’d like to know more, can I suggest our one day Introduction To Photographycourse.

Based at our training Centre in Fleet (North Hampshire), you’ll learn the foundation, the building blocks of Photography at a much deeper level than we covered today.

Not only do we look at the camera, sensors and lenses, but you’ll also go deep on the Aperture, Shutter Speed and the mysterious ISO. We’ll cover shooting modes and how to deal with difficult lighting situations, so that you always get the best exposure.
