Some Recent Portraits

I recently had the opportunity to shoot a couple of little princesses. They had such great spirit that it was truly a pleasure.

These images were taken with a 50mm prime lens – currently my fave lens.

I just LOVE ‘Pops’ energy and cheekiness in this shot. Princess behaving badly.

Flower Selection

A Random Selection Of Flowers from August, October and November this Year.

August – I absolutely love the deep purple colour of these flowers, I believe the plant to be of the clematis variety.

I love the star shape of the flowers and they way it draws you into its centre


The shallow depth of field gives a lovley softness to the edges of the petals – so pretty

October – A Bouquet of Vibrant Flowers – Couldn’t resist them:

The backlight and shallow depth of field make this image seem almost like a drawing than a photograph. Such beautiful colour!

November: A bouquet that my husband bought me had some unusual flowers, not sure what this particular flower is called but I liked it….

Hello world!

Ok so I’m going to be bombarding this blog with images as I desperately try to improve my photography skills and hopefully find some creativity in my bones.

I am starting a random subject 365 project (yes, cliche I know!!) on January the first, 2013; subject to the world still being intact of course and that no aliens have taken over the planet or any other such doomsday prophecy has come true. I’ve heard that this type of project is difficult to keep going so it should prove testament to my dedication………or lack of so the case may be.

I shall also be uploading various images as and when I can and have a number of other projects in mind to help get the creativity flowing.

I have focused on portraiture and flowers to date because I love the subjects and so undoubtedly there will be a lot of that.

So, I look forward to posting my works as I progress through the year and hope that you will enjoy looking through the images  and leaving comments as you see fit. I’m going to crack on now and put up some pictures………………….
