I love light. I love trying to take pictures that I’m told I shouldn’t take. I’ve frustrated myself rather this afternoon, after seeing this awesome shot from my newest photographer crush on instagram. @me_and_orla: "Shooting into the #light again! Oh what a lovely light. It took me a long time to realise that it's ok […]
Comments welcome. I have no idea what I’m doing. Does it show?
I’m starting to wonder what I can do with my pictures after I’ve taken them. I’ve a few ideas, but in order to implement them, I’m going to have to learn a bit more about post processing. Today’s effort, just using the lasso tool in paint.net shows how far I have to go, but also […]

Part of the reason I want to improve my photography is because on my other blog, Making it up, I do product reviews. And I want my pictures to be pinnable and beautiful and for me to enjoy writing up the reviews and sharing the pictures. So we did a product shoot in the garden […]
We went visiting the other day. Interesting to go picture hunting in someone else’s garden. I couldn’t get the picture of the blossom blowing from the tree – it looked like a blizzard, but shooting motion isn’t something I’ve got into yet. So instead, I grabbed a picture of this little guy.
