Well who wouldn't be refreshed after a 10 day break on a beauiful island with wall to wall sunshine and fabulous food, although of course the food was a problem due to not being able to resist the temptation to eat everything and anything washed down of course with some good wine! Still as always the diet starts now! The camera was in full use during the ten days and although there was plenty of scenery to shoot I still feel that my efforts at landscape leave a lot to be desired and so I had a pop at a few candid shots just to keep my hand in!! Now it is back to the studio and work and I can't wait!
Well anyone who follows my blog knows how intermittent my posts are!!! I read all the advice about keeping one's blog up to date to get better exposure - but somehow I get so busy I just don't find time, now maybe that is a good thing because it could be argued that I would be spending time on the blog and not on the photography! However, let me update you a little on the goings on at Tess Salmon Photography - I have been trying all sorts of photography lately taking me right out of my comfort zone of portrait and wedding photography and it has been challenging and fun. First up was the equine photography, still wary of those big beasts but happy with the images I managed to get, second up commercial images - so much more challenging that I had anticipated but with some helpful tips from a professional architectural photographer I managed to keep the client happy! Even tried my hand at some nature photography and have to say how those photographers manage to achieve the fantastic results of bees and butterflies I just don't know, and for me that was the hardest thing ever, I spent over an hour taking photos of butterflies and bees and the end result was just one image that I was pleased with, so I know I need to stick to the portraits!! Which leads me on to the studio stuff, fantastic session with Emma and Peter, Emma singing and Peter playing his accordian meant we got some great shots, then a family sitting that was such fun with some lovely results and up next is a P.R shoot, and a wedding so I am heading back to my comfort zone - and back to the studio!
Just mad about photography!!
