Profile…..Images Re-worked

The past few weeks have been silly busy with my full time photography job.  I  am literally in bed at nine thirty most evenings. No fun. Bags under eyes and as David keeps pointing out – I looked like a washed out rag. Selling it to you eh? Daily yoga has gone by the wayside and chocolate has come out in full force (four Easter eggs down – that didn’t belong to me).

I have quite a few shoots lined up for the Easter holidays and hope to be experimenting with a bit of analogue photography as well, with my (new to me) Olympus OM 1 – birthday present, Mothers Day and Valentines all rolled into one.

Whilst cataloguing some of my images – I took another look at profiles, reworked them a little  in VSCO (also new to me).

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.

The Portrait Session #27 …….Laughter

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ann has the most lovely smile (I rarely see her without) and has one of those laughs that lights up her whole face and makes her eyes sparkle.

With almost 23 years between us – we never tire for something to laugh about.  I took this quick portrait whilst we were waiting for a second-hand vintage warehouse to open on Saturday morning.

Location – York

The Portrait Session #26…Softer

These ones of Katie during the same shoot but different location in Edinburgh this time are softer, less edgy. Again, I have used this location a couple of times as I love the way the light falls in the arches.

Today has been busy photography wise too –  I covered a local charity event and had a very mini shoot (at the event) with a tiny gorgeous  girl called Emily.  I stuck with my 12-40mm lens today too. It’s growing on me.

The Portrait Session #25….In The Hood

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Katie and I went to Edinburgh to take some shots for her college project. We managed, as us girls do, to squeeze in a rather nice lunch and a bit of shopping along the way. This shot was taken at the rooftop terrace of the Museum, one of my favourite locations.  I used my 12-40mm lens on my Olympus OM-D EM-1 – I think I prefer shooting with a prime, rather than zoom.

Cypriot Shadows

Well a week in Cyprus did me the world of good.  No phone. No internet. Just swimming under the sun and stars, heat on my bones, reading, playing table tennis and crib, drinking too much wine and frappes. All seems like shadows in another world now that I am back to reality.
