Like most other photographers, I’ve always avoided self portraits, preferring to be behind the lens. In need of a challenge, I’ve set myself a goal to create a series of self portraits and take myself out of my comfort zone…….
This is #1 – all taken on the same day with my 50 lens.
Taken this evening in very low light conditions F2.2, Shutter 125, ISO 800 on my Nikon D300, with a basic 50 mm lens. I’m quite happy how these turned out……my beautiful daughter Mia, having turned fifteen today……xox
Capturing movement and motion…..dancing frees the soul and makes everyone beautiful, especially if you dance like no one is watching (better still it’s free!)….xox
The last remains of a bouquet of flowers, taken this morning in the dappled sunlight before I left for work (a drastic change to yesterdays blizzard!)…simplicity in itself……
This morning I woke up to snow and took the opportunity to go for a walk whilst it was still quiet, the snow was crunchy underfoot and glistening.
What better way to spend a rainy afternoon than a touch of retail therapy (UO, Topshop and Anthropologie always do the trick, even if it us just window shopping) and a visit to Edinburgh’s Fruitmarket Gallery to see the latest exhibition – Massimo Bartolini’s La Strada di Sotto. Simply stunning!
