Woodgate Valley

Welcome to a very image heavy blog. Today, I present to you some images from my very first Camera Walk. The purpose of the Camera Walk is to try and get me taking photos for fun again. When your passion becomes your job, sometimes the fun begins to disappear and you start to lose sight of why you fell in love with the art form in the first place. It’s been a long time since I’ve shot anything that isn’t commercial or model based, so I really felt like a novice when I set myself this challenge.

Luckily though, the weather was definitely on my side and I timed golden hour to perfection meaning I really got the best light of the day. I chose Woodgate Valley as the location as recently, I am becoming increasingly aware of my surroundings. I know this sounds strange, but I have really started to pay more attention to what is around me. The colours, the textures, the light and the scenery have all become 3D to me again, as if someone has removed a blindfold I wasn’t aware that I was even wearing. This is possibly down to the fact we’ve moved recently, so everything is new and there’s still a lot to be discovered.

So here we are, without further ado, I bring you a beautiful Autumnal afternoon. Enjoy.

Does anything beat a blue sky so late in the year?

Some things work both ways.

There’s still a few colourful plants hanging on.

Along with Blackberries as far as the eye can see.

Maybe I’m just a little indecisive…

Still, there’s always a place for a black and white image or two.WV2

Who can resist a friendly face? Wherever you go, there’s always some awesome characters waiting for you to meet.

Wedditing

Wedditing. That’s editing a Wedding for those unfamiliar with the language.

I’m still here, just super busy. I have a mountain of editing to get through, but it’s all good, it’ll make for some cool new blogs to come very soon.

Here’s a few little shots from the beautiful wedding I shot in September. Tropical was the theme of the day and the colours were loud, proud and a lot of fun to photograph.

Parrots were popular guests.

As were Pineapples.

Naturally, there was a fabulous pair of shoes for the bride!

Along with the most colourful bridesmaids I have ever seen.

This was definitely one of my favourite weddings to photograph. Great theme, lovely people and a beautiful location. I also got to try out my new F1.8 lens, turns it out it’s pretty tricky to use, especially for people like me who have pretty poor vision, but I think it looks great when I get it right.

Now, my first and only Wedding of the year is over, it’s time to crack on with my other projects. Stay tuned, particularly if you’re a lover of Autumn, Golden hour light, and Ponies.
