House Sitting

August 19th, 2008

This fornight, me and Jess are look­ing after our friends house in bristol.

They got mar­ried 2 years ago and have gone to Thai­land on holiday.

They’ve got a lit­tle kit­ten called Tails (as in son­ic and tails…) and­nd this cat is Men­tal… Seriously!

Any­way, we’re hav­ing a great time here.

Exact­ly! Mental!

Heres some pic­tures from their wed­ding that I shot for them.

We drove down to Corn­wall on Sat­ur­day to meet up with some friends who were camp­ing. With it being sum­mer in Eng­land, it rained, but we did a spot of body board­ing, and sat on the beach (in the car of course!)

I chose to just take one lens with me, the 50mm 1.8 (instead of the usu­al 4 lenses…)
I imme­di­at­ly regret­ted this, but its nice to just be lim­it­ed to a prime lens, because it gets you think­ing more about com­po­sis­tion. If you want to zoom into some­thing, you have to walk there!

My 50mm 1.8 lets in allot more light than any oth­er lens­es, so its great for dark wed­dings where I can’t use flash, and even bet­ter for por­traits, as the back­ground gets very blurred out. Very flattering.

If you don’t own a prime lens, real­ly con­sid­er pur­chas­ing one if you want super sharp images, and don’t want to use flash at a wedding.

The sun came out just in time to let us watch it set, which was brilliant.

I felt very hon­oured to be asked by this cou­ple to get a sill­outte of them both!

What will I be blog­ging about next?
Well, as you know, I have Sam and Esthers wed­ding com­ing up on bank hol­i­day monday.

I should be hav­ing a deliv­ery of a guest book that I com­piled for Sam and Reanne any day soon, so I’ll post some pic­tures up for you to see.

I’ve been writ­ing con­tent and reviews for this blog, and for my site so I won’t be run­ning out of any­thing to write about.

As from today, I will be look­ing for a blog to feature.
This fea­ture is called “My blog of the Blog”
Todays blog of the blog comes from: Bert Stephani
I dis­cov­ered Bert after find­ing some of his bril­liant videos on youtube

His pic­tures are always of the high­est qual­i­ty, and he seems to be pret­ty much the nicest bloke in Belgium!
Fol­low­ing his blog, you can real­ly tell that he puts his fam­i­ly ahead of his work, which is some­thing we all need to remem­ber to do.

Thanks Bert!
