After all this snow, I really do hope Spring comes. I took this image today with the sun shining on the crocuses (yes, a spring plant) The thing I love about this plant is that it is so bright and really does make me think of Spring.
So on saturday, I have been asked to help photograph “laid back” pictures of the wedding couple and their family. I have never done this kind of thing before, so it will be very interesting to see how everything turns out. I have been scanning to internet for articles about wedding photography and have come across this one. It tells you what to do and gives you tips about how to go about your day.
Here is another link to a blog in which Dannie talks about things happening in Edinburgh and also about her interests. She shows pictures of Edinburgh castle and a couple of videos on her idol Beth Tweddle; on Dancing on Ice and in the Olympics.
This is another example of one of my final images from last years folio. Again it shows vivid colour from the berries with water drops hanging from them. I focussed into the back berries, to give the image depth, to make it seem further away from the camera. I also love how the snow is lying on top of the berries, as it displays a beautiful contrast of colours.
Last year, I was doing Higher Photography in school, I needed to create 12 final images to be sent off to the exam board. My theme for the folio was “Vivid Colours in Nature”. As you can see this image has a lovely crisp green colour from the fur tree with drips of water hanging from it. In the background you can see the dusky red of my shed.
The moment I woke up I looked out my window. I hoped yesterdays snow was covered, and new snow had laid. Instead I saw patches of ground with salt and wetness on them. The snow had melted. I really wanted to go sledging, but the weather report said it is going to snow tomorrow too. On the other hand, I just want to to be warm, hurry up spring!
Here’s a link to my good friend Eilidh’s photography page. She is getting well into her new buisness, snapping away with landscapes, weddings, models and animals. She has just asked me to help her in a wedding on Saturday taking “laid-back” pictures, which is a very exciting opportunity.
