Rachael…..

A quick off the cuff shoot with the beautiful Rachael, whilst we were checking out this part- restored church for a forthcoming event in Glasgow.   I love the fact we hadn’t planned it, yet she looks so together – complete with matching lipstick and nails.  The day was overcast but still the light fell magically.

Portrait and Landscape…..

A busy week.  Seven schools in five days.  The second image was taken at one of my schools on Thursday whilst I was waiting to take year groups.  It made a change to see such a lovely landscape view and natural light in my “office” for the afternoon.  Far too often I’m stuck in a spare bog standard classroom.   This image was taken on my work’s camera – Nikon D300s with a 35mm lens.

The first image was on I took today, a quick portrait of Jonny on the water, training. I used my OMD EM1 with 12-40mm lens.  Neither image has been edited (apart from putting into black and white).

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).

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.

Detail…Breathe

Finding beauty in the everyday……. long dead in my garden.  Plucked from a soggy mess to preserve something delicate and fragile.

Frost, Woodland and The Muffler

Here in Scotland it is frosty with a capital F.  Mia was keen to wear her new headgear, which I’ve aptly named “The Muffler” and was willing to have some shots taken. A win-win all round.

We are so fortunate to have this country park literally on our doorstep. It was quiet this morning – only  the odd dog walker, so we almost had the place to ourselves.  Cold set in quick, Mia’s nose was starting to go red (not being one for photoshop or a moaning teenager)  – we headed home after 20 minutes or so.

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.
