Its been a long while now since I posted, far too long in fact. So much has happened since my last post, so many days out, places visited and tales to tell. Where to start really.
Well I felt a good place to start would be my nieces christening, as this site was supposed to be about me improving my skills and my photography journey and this was the 1st time I had taken photos for anyone other than me.
Chloe is an adorable little girl, she’s 5 years old, fairly quiet with a really cheeky grin and has a knack for getting messy! My sister made the decision last year she wanted Chloe to be christened and had it all arranged fairly quickly. I offered to take my camera to capture the moment for them.
Now, I am a landscape lover, an admirer of architecture, there’s nothing better than a sky full of cloud and some hills to shoot or a ruined castle begging me to record it’s slow demise. Family, friends, people in general, not really my cup of tea. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to do portrait and events, it’s just, it’s someone’s day, “what if I muck it up”. However, I suppose confidence is all part of the journey.
So what you see here is some of the photos taken on that educational day. I only used my 50mm lens and all pictures were taken either on “manual” or “aperture priority”. I have only included a selection of photos taken on the day as I have not spoken with everyone who was there and have not gained permission to display their photos online.
