This is one of 90 images I took of the impressive Marina.
She stayed in the same spot and gave me a different pose and expression each time. All within 20 minutes and she rocked every shot.
Taken with my 50 lens on a D800, using strobe light bouncing from an umbrella.
Add to that a little cropping and retouching.
Plaza De Espana, Seville, Spain.
So I have been scratching my head recently trying to think of personal projects to undertake this year.
I have a big list in my head but for now here are a few
It’s all part of the journey.
This is a close crop of a shot I took in March last year. I used my then new Nikon D800 with a 50mm f1.4 prime lens
A consequence of the amount of cropping is that I ended up getting rid of most of the megapixels this camera is known for
I am going to get a longer lens (85mm or 105mm) at some point, but not just yet.
I rediscovered inspirational speaker Les Brown and this is a quote from one of his talks. “Fear kills dreams”.
Don’t let blind fear stop you from doing what you have called to do.
The image above is actually a bench. At first sight it might not look particularly attractive but many people in need of a rest have been glad that it’s there.
My posts on this blog are pretty random and I am not going to change that deliberately. It is all part of my journey of learning, practise, experimentation and development.
At the moment I am loving the vintage look at the moment.
I no longer post daily and have thought the title of this blog might no longer be appropriate. However look many photographers image making is always on my mind and I work on my photography everyday.
So the title stays.
I have so many images to share with you. This one was taken in September on a film set with actress Natalie as we waited to shoot her scenes .
The image was taken back in August in the picturesque Hampstead Heath with model Gladys.
It feels like November weather in London is about to put on its winter coat.
It’s going to be really tempting to stay inside keep warm and long for summer.
Over the last 31 days, I have had the opportunity to photograph some life events in the following order
Yes I found it interesting that the opportunities came in that order, but it also reminded me that we should celebrate life wherever we are.
Can you find something to smile about today? I really hope you can.
