335-2020 – BMW Servicing Specialists


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about Power Developments: the actual BMW Servicing Specialists in Basildon. A few days ago my car developed some ABS issues, and happy to say that now are resolved, thanks to the specialists at Power Developments. My takeaway from this experience is: don’t use any garage and try to find a garage specialised on the kind of car you are having, even though is a bit more expensive. The previous garage I went to asked £160 to fix my issue and they couldn’t, but wasted a day […]

332-2020 – Little Princess


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about a little princess who visited our Ozgo Productions studio to celebrate her birthday with a photo session. I used a Canon 5D Mark 3 with a 70-200mm f/2.8L lens and a black background because she was wearing a yellow dress and I wanted the greatest contrast between the subject and the background.

329-2020 – Mother and Child Statue in Basildon Town Centre


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about the mother and child statue in Basildon Town Centre. If you look closely, you might notice that someone considered that the initial sculpture is missing something to be a complete work of art, so they have added a traffic cone on top. Not the most funny art installation, but still a creative approach to and existent iconic ‘The Mother and Child’ fountain situated in the central plaza of the Basildon town centre. Luckily, the addition is not permanent and the traffic cone can be easily […]

325-2020 – Red Grapefruit on Black Background


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is of a red grapefruit on black background, shot in my studio @Ozgo Productions. Most doctors recommend eating Ruby Red grapefruit for the more potent antioxidants. The Ruby Red grapefruit has twenty-eight times more vitamin A than the original white grapefruit. Just like vitamin C, vitamin A works as a powerful antioxidant. Like, comment & share!

322-2020 – Lemon Mold


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is a studio shot of a lemon with green mold on it. Please remember, if your bread, lemon, apple jam tomato sauce etc has any amount of mold on it, don’t just remove the mold layer and continue using that product, because a cancerous substances called aflatoxins already contaminated your food.

321-2020 – Santa is coming to town


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about Santa coming to town a little bit early this year, probably confused by the lockdown. It looks like due to the cold and flu season, in UK the Christmas will happen via Zoom. I even spotted Santa in his sledge in the sky a little bit earlier. Ho-Ho-Ho Merry Lockdown Everyone!Like, comment & share!

320-2020 – Huge Pink Boots


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about the girl in the swing with huge pink boots. Obviously, my daughter doesn’t have huge feet, but they may look huge if I used a wide angle lens and her feet are close to the lens. To avoid distortion to my subject’s face, I placed her head in the middle of the frame. You might say that everyone knows this camera trick by now, except the people who install cameras on rackets and satellites, unless they do it on purpose. But then why they would […]

319-2020 – Heineken


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is of a can of Heineken on a black background. This is my wife’s favourite lager beer, but not my favourite subject to photograph in my studio. Because of the shiny surface, it’s very easy to get reflections you don’t want.

316-2020 – Drawing in the garden


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about my daughter drawing in the garden. Not long ago she would draw all over the paper, but recently I have noticed how she is more careful and draws within the contour of the subject. Like, comment & share!

312-2020 – Behind the lens


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about one of those proud father moments when my daughter went behind the lens, directing and actually taking pictures of her friends. Usually, with any other activity her attention span is really short, a few minutes the most before she comes up with one of her lines: “I’m tired” Or “I’m bored”.Today after 30 minutes she was still going and I had to turn off the studio lights to signal that the photo session is over. Some of the images from this photoshoot can be seen […]

308-2020 – Bananas


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about two bananas on a mirror in the Ozgo Productions studio. The setup was really simple, one flash head shooting through a snoot, about 45 degrees from the subject pointing down. The main benefit of using a snoot is controlling the light. It restricts the spread to a narrow beam, so that some areas of the frame are not lit at all. In our tabletop example, the bananas are highlighted and the background is totally black.

306-2020 – Back to the UK


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about a moment worth remembering, after 3 months in Romania the entire family is back to the UK. Initially we were thinking to return for good in Romania, but after 3 months we realised that nothing has changed and I don’t think it will change anytime soon. As my wife said, “Let’s not forget why we left in the first place”. In conclusion, we would like that our daughter will have the best opportunity for a decent life, with less unnecessary struggles if possible and if […]
