How silly am I? I've got several hundred photos to go through, taken on a three week canal holiday just before I went into hospital!

Thank you all so much for all the suggestions...

Re: Photography after surgery?

You could always try water droplet freeze frame macro shots. Some fantastic effects can be had with simple flash lighting. Hope you get well soon by the way.

Re: Photography after surgery?

Welcome back Janet. The most important thing if you've got stitches, tender internal parts etc. is to take things gently and give them time to mend properly. The simple act of undergoing surgery takes a lot out of us, before they start literally taking bits out.

I was wondering where you had been. There was a recent thread, maybe it was of Ann1e's shots along the Grand Union, where Aussie Mark and I had a little conversation about canals. Processing hundreds of shots from a recent trip sounds like pretty good therapy! I'll look forward to seeing some in due course.

Ciao ... John

Re: Photography after surgery?

Thanks for your good wishes...

Here's one I've just found...great reminder of a fabulous trip! Fresh sweetcorn, three different varieties of apples and a delicious bunch of grapes...all gathered for free on our trip...including the cuddly toy which was rescued from the canal!



The roses were purloined from the garden of a derelict lock keepers cottage...

...we became experts at apples! Apple crumble cooked on the wood burning stove, apple chutney, apple sauce...

Janet

Re: Photography after surgery?

Firstly Janet you need to take it easy and get well, I suppose its a balance of doing enough to keep mobile and boredom free but also to rest enough to heal properly. After a minor operation a while ago I found some of the grand childrens toys at home and with the aid of a tripod and natural lighting had some fun.




Anyway get well soon. Best Regards Martin

Re: Photography after surgery?

Even sitting at the computer for too long can be harmful, so follow the advice of the physioterrorists re sitting and moving around, and do not forget to do any stretching exercises you might have been asked to do to help stretch the wound.
