As you might have guessed from my lack of posts, I have been incredibly busy over the last few months. The good news is that most of this time has been spent doing other photography things aside from my blog and personal projects (those poor photos from Slovenia I took almost 6 months ago are still sitting on my hard drive largely unedited! Here are a few that I have finally done…)
The most exciting of these include a number of articles I have written for a brand new site called lovedslr.com. It’s sponsored by Canon and is aimed at new and budding photographers with a love of photography. The website, as well as showcasing people’s images, details how to get the most out of your camera without getting too technical. My current articles offer practical ideas and approaches to street and landscape photography (including the best times of day, compositions). More will be posted soon, and I will share them here on my blog too.
I have been making my website, which is almost ready to go. And with my new website the purpose of my blog will change a little; I want to expand more on the stories and process of taking individual photos (from the planning right up to the processing) so that it will be more informative and insightful. Watch this space!
Then I’ve been photographing weddings! I have been shooting weddings here and there for a while now, but business has been picking up and it’s becoming a staple part of my paid photography work. It’s great fun to work with people and capture the special moments of their day, and next year is looking like it will be equally busy. Here are some of my favourite shots from the most recent wedding I did:
The end of one year and the beginning of another is always the time to review the year gone by and think about goals for the future. I have more travels lined up for 2015, including a winter break to Slovenia, and a long visit to Mauritius is in the pipeline, where I plan to take more photos, of course! I also have my sights set on Iceland, though I’m not sure if I’ll be able to squeeze it in.
Bring on 2015!
