I thought I would write a short post to discuss my absence from this blog for nearly a year now. It has been a crazy 12 months and life has just gotten in the way recently. I haven’t done as much as I would like and my creative efforts have been channelled elsewhere recently. There is no new work here, just a brief account of the last 12 months for me.
I have mentioned before that I am a budding designer, although I have no formal training I have been self teaching my way round the core applications for a while now. Still a long way to go. I had a request recently to create a logo for a young girls cake company. This is what I did.
I happened to have my camera in the right place at the right time this morning as I got a rare opportunity to catch a couple of foxes running around my garden. They didnt know I was watching and these are the shots I got.
Last weekend I visited the new Harry Potter Studio Tour in London for a friends birthday. It was the first time I have taken my DSLR out for tourism purposes and I thought Id share some pictures with you. If you are a Harry Potter fan then I definitely suggest you take the time out to visit this for yourself. I took over 300 pictures and have picked just a few for display here.
Following my attempt to copy a tutorial from the Practical Photoshop magazine collection and the subsequent Cyborg Woman image I created, I was asked by a friend to do something similar for her. Only she wanted something more Steampunk than Cyborg.
Well tonights photoshoot was quite different to that of Tuesday. From Kasabian and their beer chugging fan base to the teenage girl sensation that is the Saturdays. A whole new challenge with a few new things for me to wrestle with.
Last night I had the opportunity to shoot at the Kasabian gig on behalf of work. A great gig and my first experience of a press release form. If you are reading this article without pictures it means I may have had to remove them already. Not sure if I am allowed to post for non profit uses. Time will tell!
