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!
