Photoshoot! Stef and Emily

November 13th, 2008

Yes, I know I’ve not blogged for so long, I’m very sorry.
We’ve had all sorts of prob­lems, and the prob­lem has lit­er­al­ly just been fixed, so as you can tell, I’ve been des­per­ate to blog!
Thanks allot to Col­in and Phil for sort­ing it out, as I nev­er have a clue how to work these things…

I wrote this post a few weeks ago, and I don’t real­ly plan on edit­ing it, so just laugh at how out of date it is will you? =)
Here goes…:

Obvi­ous­ly, I’ve been very busy recent­ly, I’ve had a nice lit­tle project on my hands!

The weath­er at the moment is fan­tas­tic though.
Have you had a chance to cap­ture all those colors?


This project I’ve giv­en myself has been great. Its kept me real­ly busy whilst there aren’t many wed­dings to do.
I real­ly rec­om­mend that if you’re find­ing your­self in a bit of a lull, just plan out what you real­ly want to get some pic­tures of, and don’t let any­thing get in your way.
Take some pic­tures of your par­ents, which I plan to do as soon as they’re up for it.
Get up ear­ly to get pic­tures of the sun­rise, which I don’t ever plan on doing… =)
Ask your friends to dress up and come out for a walk, and turn it into an impromp­tu shoot!
I’m sure you’ve got a per­fect­ly great cam­era in your house. Use it =)
Oh, and print them up, don’t just leave them on your computer!!

I want­ed to get in as many shoots as pos­si­ble with a lens that I hired from

I hired the 85mm f.14 nikkor, which was beau­ti­ful. One of the sharpest lens­es I’ve used. And around £40 for an £800 pro grade prime lens isn’t bad at all. I’ll defi­nat­ly hire from them again.

I only man­aged to do two shoots with this lens, but I think that was enough real­ly, espe­cial­ly when I’m run­ning out of space on my exter­nal HDD.

I’ve got plen­ty more shoots lined up, so keep an eye on the blog.

Onto Stef and Em’s shoot.

In gen­er­al, I have a pret­ty good idea for loca­tions, but more often than not, my cou­ples know the area bet­ter than myself.
We found a great loca­tion which, to be hon­est, I don’t plan on telling you where it is because it was so great and I’m self­ish! I’ll let you work it out, its not impossible :)
I might do a TTD ses­sion here when I have the guts one day! :)

This shoot was just a cou­ple of weeks ago, and believe it or not, it was actu­al­ly warm, dare I say Hot?
The light at first was pret­ty tricky to work with, but by the end of the day, it was get­ting real­ly gold­en and we soon found our­selves lit­er­al­ly run­ning to a spot where we could see some sun­light peek­ing through trees and bush­es. Good fun!

Enjoy the pictures!
