I don't really know where this road of photography is taking me. it's been one year since I began shooting with a dslr and I feel like I've come so far and have met so many inspiring and lovely people along the way.
I have flickr to thank for that. If it wasn't for the flickr support and advice I wouldn't have kept up with my 365 for as long as I did. That was my foundation which I can now apply when shooting others. All I know is that with each new photo I want to be better..

And here we are! One of the shots from yesterday's shoot. It was an incredible experience, the weather was the best we've had all week and there was a good choice of light available. We had clouds, gloomy, wind and sunny intervals! I haven't had such a fun day in ages. The ladies I worked with for this are based in Brighton and we had good communication when it came to the preparation of this shoot.
I'm learning to work with other people and it's so much fun. I'm so in love with what I do that when a beautiful scene comes together and I capture the "moment" I forget all the trials that may have taken place and am in this bizarre happiness bubble. I know I know.. so corny! But so true :p
The lenses I used for this shoot were: Canon - 100mm, 50mm f1.8 and 10-20mm
And now some behind the scenes!
Getting ready in my kitchen!
What brings us together and what keeps us apart
I'm a massive fan of street artist Slinkachu. He set's up (little) scenes that tell a story of what it's like to live in a city. All his 'little people' have a life that draws you in and sometimes makes you laugh! Definitely check out his blog - little-people.blogspot.com
A few images for I have a shoot coming later this week. The clothes will be long and full of motion and we're using the English sea/ cliffs as a backdrop. I love the unexpectedness of the first shot and the pure energy in the second.
A mash up of summer filled days in Oxford and Brighton..
There's no way I'd ever go on this ride! -The one in the sky not the carousel! ;)
Lots of lovely days by the sea..
And of course there has been lots of baking! :)
