Detail….Out of Focus and More Shoes I Don’t Own

A couple of my favourite images taken this past few days.  Taken on Olympus OM-D EM1.

Tulips in my living room – finished but better than fresh.  Decay always seems better with nature.

My new Mac lipstick. A little high maintenance for me.  It means I actually have to check my appearance from time to time. Image taken in the loos of Flatplanet, Soho.

Nicholas Kirkwood shoes – not mine.  Too big, too expensive for my budget. But lovely all the same.

Pinkston Watersports – Glasgow. Early one Sunday morning, out of focus but I prefer it.

Weekend Reflections…..

Sometimes the best laid plans go pear shaped.  Our family weekend in London wasn’t our greatest time away together.   But you live and learn and come back stronger.

Detail…..Early Risers

Sunday morning saw me heading over to Glasgow to watch Jonny, who is a Canoe Slalom Athlete, (who just happens to be my teenage son) train.  It was frosty, with all water frozen but the light was beautiful.  While the course was being set for racing and athletes warming up, I pottered around capturing high rise flats in light reflections, sunbursts, breaking the frozen ice and thawing frost….

Teamwork

I wanted to show you a few of my favourite images from this week’s shoot in Edinburgh.  Aghogho and I work well together.  We met about a year ago and quickly fell into a pattern.  She rocks up with her suitcase overflowing with outfits, I choose the locations. She changes in toilets, changing rooms and sometimes alleyways. I grab tea and wait patiently. We try to avoid lingering in shops so not to make purchases. We make it up as we go along.  Along the way we’ve become friends.  Natural beauty and natural lights.

Model – Aghogho Ogenesi

Preparing Strawberries…..

Testing out lights and cables after a few months break from studio photography in preparation for going back to work.  I used my EM-1 instead of my work Nikon as wanted to see how it performed in a studio setting. It over exposed by one stop, but now I know.  Katie very kindly modelled for me. On her birthday as well.  Afterwards I helped her make chocolate covered strawberries.

Detail….Productivity and Laziness

This week has been a contrast of productivity and laziness. I have spent far too much time checking in on my favourite blogs, scouring the internet virtually creating a wardrobe I will never be able to afford and baking.  I have however been preparing for going back out to photograph in schools next week – testing lights and cables (post to follow) and had a great shoot in Edinburgh on Monday, where the light was magnificent (post and images to follow).

Here are a couple from my morning walk, far too much snow here for my liking. Give me heat, a bikini and the sea any day.
