Lookbook - Ella

Today I met up with a good friend from high school - Ella - to do a mini photo shoot for an upcoming Lookbook. We went Smallmans, a park behind City Hall. It was so beautiful!! There was blossom littered all over the paths and there were red, yellow and white tulips in the flower beds. 
Finally managed to take a decent photo of blossom!
Still have to do a post about my last Saturday, and a mini photography shoot I did yesterday.

Elisa Sighicelli

Last Wednesday I had my first shift volunteering for Ffotogallery in Penarth. I spent the shift doing a stock check through all the books - allowing me to find this charming book. I think the use of natural lighting is what caught my eye. I have a real love for natural lighting as I find it brings out the best in a subject. How Elisa Sighicelli has focused on the light produced by a window is something which creates a beautiful and calming effect. I love reading about photographers own views and reasons behind a project, it really inspires me with my own work..
I should of really scanned the pages in, but I was feeling lazy haha
I'm really glad I've started volunteering for Ffotogallery, my next shifts are 21st and 22nd of May where I'll be installing a new exhibition, which will include painting the walls and hanging the images.. Exciting!! Although the shifts aren't regular I think it's going to be a great opportunity to surround myself more with photography. I also have a discount on books and there are selected books I even get for free! I also have access to the darkrooms in Chapter Arts Center, which is amazing because I really want to start processing my own film and developing my own images. 

Here's the Ffotogallery website -> http://www.ffotogallery.org/

More posts coming very soon

Finally got round to editing some photos for photography. For those who can't yet tell I have a slight obsession with double exposures... This is just a bit of experimentation at the moment, would be much happier taking these photos on a film camera but the LC-A+ is still a no show... The ones above are just a couple of favourites. Most of them are just me in my room though... pretty boring! 

Today I need to do a bit more photography. Despirately need to find the time to clean my room aswell but my week seems pretty much full and hectic until atleast Monday..

Sunny Penarth

Hello lovely people, I'm in a great mood tonight. I'm listening to Bonobo's brand new Radio 1 Essential Mix and just finished doing some photography work - which included reminiscing on a little personal project I did a couple of years back ( a lot of embarrassing photos) haha -.

I've hit 40,000 views!! Haha that's good right? I'm not sure if it's that much of a milestone. 50,000 will be a bit more special but I'm so happy!! June 2012 I hit 20,000 views which means I've had 20,000 in less than 2 years!! That's crazy! Hopefully I'll be able to get this blog on track and get even more, even quicker!

The last few days the weather has been absolutely beautiful! I've spent them up in Penarth which involves lots of walks to the pier, lounging around Tom's back garden and going up town to get lunch and yummy smoothies.

Hope everybodies enjoying the sun where they are! I'll post soon!
