Flowers and Portraits

15th November 2013
I thought it was only two weeks since I’d written anything for the blog but having looked another month has slipped by.

I’ve not been out as much as I would have liked but as I really do love photography and I always try to get the camera out and do some photography during the week.

The standby subject is usually flowers and although a formal photo of a flower display is very nice I do like to tinker and try to produce something a bit different. I just like to play in Photoshop really!!

More recently I’ve done a portrait session two weekends running and as I don’t have a studio I have to deconstruct one of the rooms to put the background and lights up. It’s a bit of a pain in the bottom but it’s something I don’t mind doing.

The room I use is a bit on the small side and I can’t put the lights where I really want to but I can usually get some shots that people like and that is the priority I think. I look at the technical side of things and I like perfection or as near as I can get to it but the subjects and definitely parents look at totally different things.

The photos I produced prompted a flurry of activity on the website with a massive increase in page views, which was excellent news and I even got two comments even better!!

Whether it will lead to a paying photoshoot only time will tell but I have had a couple of tentative enquiries.

I’m going to Gloucester in the near future to take photos of dog beds with dogs on them! The old saying is never work with animals and children; I must be a glutton for punishment as I suspect children may also come into the equation somewhere as well.

Thanks for reading.
