Wedding photography is all kinds of stressful…
Today has been a busy day, first I was back shooting at Lotmead, which was verry fun. And then I was off helping Dom with a 25 year vowel renewal..wedding..thing. I just didn’t know what to do, and I couldn’t understand a thing they was saying.. Awkward.
Below are a couple of pictures I took from the wedding and the reception. For any of those interested, I was using my new 50mm as I’m in love with it, and cant bring myself to take it off my camera body.

Gotta say i’d never thought i’d generate that sort of interest when I started this blog. But i’m glad i can entertain some of you out there!
Tomorrow I have another shoot at Lotmead Farm. I just love it there, its so interesting! If i wasn’t afraid of waking up so early, id love to work at a farm. Also, on monday I am going up near Bath, to photograph at Jamies Farm. Its a real working farm with a charity side to it that helps disadvantaged school children at risk of expulsion and the like.
Final major project deadline day in seven days. Seven too short freaking days. ):
Photography Exhibition at the Free Range Art and Design Show
Poster created by Lee Heaven to promote our exhibition at the end of June
As it says on the poster, we will be exhibiting at the graduate show at the Truman Brewery at the end of June.
Like typical students, we intend to have lots of wine to go with the opening night!
We are all currently working on our final major project for hand in in two weeks.
‘Patience’ is the new blog to promote all this, click here to see more.
I’ve fallen a little bit in love with baby cows, they are adorable!
For my final major project (which will be exhibited in London), I will be doing a photo shoot at Lotmead farm in Swindon. They have a fabulous old Gypsy Moth plane on site which I got to photography with, yay!
Today was a sort of test run for next week (hopefully) with another girl who will be modelling for me. Seriously hope it works out, otherwise i’m a little bit screwed for my deadline in two weeks…
I hear the hairy bikers were filming here last month…
Did you know, he made his own brand of sausages called Porkinsons…
From his early days as a photographer up to his death he remained one of the foremost British portrait and fashion photographers. And today would have been his 100th. His work revolutionised the world of British fashion photography in the ’40s by bringing his models from the rigid studio environment into a far more dynamic outdoor setting. Humour played a central role in many of his photographs which often included himself. He photographed top models of the day, including the likes of Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton
I will never get bored of his work. I really enjoyed the exhibition put on by his former assistant Angela Williams, that I visited last year at the Bristol Mshed, and I reaallyyyyy hope I can visit another one soon.
Below are a couple of my favourite images, including one of the man himself!
And I hope Ben doesn’t kill me for this…
I ordered a 50mm for my Nikon yesterday, and it arrived this morning. Hows that for quick delivery?! I can’t wait to shoot with it properly. I played around with it this morning, taking pictures of my boyfriend, and the dog who is quickly becoming my favourite model!
I love how low an aperture it gets down to – f/1.8
I can’t be dealing with sauna like environments…
Stuck in a stuffy dark little room, photographing through the window in a door isn’t my cup of tea. It was baking hot, and I couldn’t hear the plays I was photographing!
Last week I had the opportunity to photograph the Harold Joliffe One Act Play festival in Swindon Old Towns art centre. Great to do for my course and all that, but I have definitely learnt, that’s not the kind of thing I want to do.
Didn’t do as good a job as the last year photographers did…
I greatly dislike doing this FDA, and can’t wait to get on and do my final year in London. My interviews for the universities started this week. Hope they go okay, I suck at interviews…
