2014 Week 46 Day 7 – I have set up a black background and off camera flash reflected onto the subject, to get some shots I might use in Christmas cards and perhaps also for printing. The boys didn’t really want to oblige in this ‘arty’ set -up, but I persuaded them and I really […]
2014 Week 45 Day 2 – I wanted to play around with low key lighting today with my husband, but he was a bit bored as I didn’t really know what I was doing. I wanted a moody look though, so bored is probably close enough!! And the kids never fail to provide subject material. Here […]
2014 Week 41 Day 5 – Felix’s party day. Huge excitement in the house. Of course, these pictures I took of the kids before the guests arrived were taken in vain as i didn’t take any during the actual party. Well, with a room full of 4 year olds, I think the lure of the […]
2014 Week 36 Day 4 – One of the reasons I am soooooo behind in my posts is because as well as having the usual childcare activities taking up most of my time, I have been doing a couple of photography jobs recently. Today, I had the pleasure of a photoshoot at a party for […]
2014 Week 36 Day 1 – I played with lights again, but had them a little bright, though as my model would not sit still for long, I had to make do!
2014 Week 35 Day 6 – I have been asked to take photos at a teenagers party! Eight 13 year old girls! What fun. So, I got my lights out to see if they worked (and to practise) and was lucky enough to have willing models – a rare service from my eldest! You might be forgiven […]
2014 Week 22 Day 1 – Today I had the pleasure of photographing the most gorgeous 7 day old baby boy. I want to practice new born photography as it might be something I would like to get into as and when I get a bit more time…. but obviously, I have to find the babies […]
2014 Week 21 Day 7 – I do love Miss Willow. Even though she keeps me awake all night by coming in to our bed, usually swapping places with my husband, and then kicks and slaps me endlessly, I just have to look at her and my heart melts. And especially when she is so […]
2014 Week 20 Day 3 – We went over to a friend’s house today (along with another friend) to let her borrow a lens I have to play with in her new studio in the back garden. I had the two little ones with me and it was rather stressful with them as a studio […]
2014 Week 18 Day 1 – A gorgeous sunny day allowed me to experiment photographing daisies! A friend also popped over to borrow my studio lights and backdrop, so I set them up to show her (and remind myself). Of course, that was a green light for Felix to lie down.
