Photo shoots are on hold this weekend because I’m sick! Again…! I think that the cold I picked up in Liverpool a few weeks back never quite left me and decided to come back for a second attempt to defeat me…
So whilst sniffling and coughing and trying not to breathe the same air as Michael, I’m taking this opportunity to catch up on my learning of the more technical aspects of photography. That side of things has slowed down a little bit I have to admit, now that I feel like I have understood the aperture, shutter speed, depth of field etc etc, my creative mind decided it was sick of the study and just wanted to get out there & practise. So I need to get back on the learning wagon!
A friend of mine has been very helpfully spoon-feeding me useful links such as this one..
It came at exactly the right time as I had been thinking a lot about this after doing a series of headshots for the Linkedin pages of some friends/old colleagues. We battled against midday sun (an error I know but it was unavoidable that week with all of our busy timetables) and ended up with a series of photos that were maybe a little too bright. Note to self: Next time, do it at 5pm!
Have a lovely weekend in the sun !
I have been so inspired to see a friend on the other side of the Atlantic realizing her creative dreams this week. My paths crossed with Jess when she lived in Paris, just before she embarked on a new adventure in Tunis. At the time I could see her wonderful spirit of adventure and infectious passion for fashion as she worked on her own line of jewellery. Now back in Texas, she has brought everything together with the launch of her new online magazine Velvet Dust. Its full of photography editorials and projects, articles and interviews. Check it out, its wonderful.
Have a wonderful Easter weekend! I am heading over to Liverpool tonight & I can’t wait to see family & friends, indulge in some lovely food & get some fresh sea air into my lungs…
Yesterday, I strolled along the seine taking pictures with the lovely Lindsey from Pictours Paris. These beautiful flowers were at Marché aux Fleurs. More pictures to come from our little adventure soon!
I took this photo at the weekend in the marais. It was funny because I had to have a few attempts as it was on a busy street and as I was looking through my viewfinder, people kept walking infront of the doorway, waving or sticking their tongues out at the camera. I kept looking up & trying to catch them in the act (not to be menacing but just to smile & show them I found it funny too) but they carried on walking and instantly went back to their poker faces, as if to say “It wasnt me trying to ruin your photo, mademoiselle!”
Speaking of jokers, I’m not sure if this door knocker dude that I stumbled upon is also being goofy or slowly having his brains eaten away by all those snakes….?
