I havent Blogged in a very long time and when I did, I didnt blog much . However as I continue wander closer and closer towards certain lethargy now I have graduated , its prudent I get back into the swing of things.
So first off, Bye Tumblr! …. well ill say that soon when I can get a better blog integrated into my site sorted.
In the mean tide , aside from my thwarted attempts to launch myself into music and portrait photography , I am now taking it upon myself to set myself regular photo projects to create a series of collections throughout the year, this will comprise of a macro shot a day for the year , a photo walk a week , a new project a month , and a yearly series documenting life in nottingham ( the specific theme of which remains undetermined) but I do know ill be shooting in 35mm film.
Heres my first shot for my macro collection of a busy bee.
This weekend I was lucky enough to film a band all day. It was a great experience being able to cover it from all angles and these guys really put on a good show, as you can imagine to have a worthwhile Santana tribute band they’ve really got to know their stuff. I managed to sneak a snap in-between songs which i felt came out not too terrible. Its a nothing special pic apart from the fact its the first one with my new sigma 24-70 2.8 lens. I cant wait to try it out properly on thursday. Samtana can be found on here#
Just sent off for my new photo book from blurb and im very excited. The book features a collection of my favourite work over the last year and will be a great keepsake for a few years down the line. I made the book using the new Lightroom 4 feature which i recommend highly. The ease of use is very satisfactory and you get a great range of options for print.Should arrive in a week or so and if im lucky my new business cards will be here by tomorrow!
Chances are itll just be me and mum owning a copy of the book but should anyone else like one they’re going for 20 pounds :)
