Official opening of Turner Road Diagnostic Centre in Colchester.

I was really chuffed to be asked by the Diagnostic Centre in Colchester to provide some images for their walls in the new centre. This evening was the official opening so I took along my dad as my wing man. He looked so smart in his suit, thanks for coming with me dad. Another moment and memory to treasure.

 

Collecting backgrounds

This is me up a ladder over the weekend taking pics of the village grass, why you may ask? I got a few looks but was armed ready with a story should anyone ask!

Clients sometimes ask me if I can put together a composite image (made up of disparate or separate parts or elements), this week I am working on an image which is advertising a football agility tool so I needed a background image of good healthy grass. The grass at the football and rugby club are a bit worn and sparse this grass from Bentley Village green looked perfect. It’s always useful to collect images of the sky, clouds and textures to use for backgrounds so whenever I see something I get my camera to shoot it to add to my background collection.

Time to update my own profile pics, another year older and all that jazz…

I am lucky to have a few photographer friends so when we want to update our own images online we spend a day messing about like little kids in the studio, experimenting and playing around. Thanks Jack what a work out but worth it, I think we got some good ones of each other. This was me trying to look like a corporate animal(which I am not naturally) and ending up dissolving  into pulling faces and relaxing into this pose.

Playing about with Cinemagraphs…

Okay so I have become hooked on a new distraction, making Cinemagraphs!

I love this effect of using video and creating layers in Photoshop to keep some of the image as a moving image but make the rest of the image static.It makes for a cool selfie don’t you think?

Pooch shoots at my studio in Colchester

Oh they were so cute and well behaved! I have to admit I do think they look rather dandy in their tie and bandanna. Apparently he looks after her and is the sensible one so it says a bit a bout their personality, I have a few different styles of neck wear which some people love others are just looking for a really nice portrait of their dog either way is fine we always have fun at our doggy shoots.
