I recently found some much needed personal photography time. Breaking away for a quick shoot isn’t the easiest thing nowadays with 5 kids under 10; however, I tend to do a lot of “thinking” about the details of my next personal shoot in between changing nappies and bribing them to eat up all their dinner.
Photography is all about your eye and training yourself to see the shot. This never stops, and is one of the main reasons why I love taking photos. You can look at something everyday and not “see” its photographic beauty, and then out of the blue it speaks to you in a different way.
I have been trying to snap out of my industrial, grunge phase (since the 90’s) however my “secret warehouse” was just too good to pass up. We had half an hour to run around, have some fun, take some shots and teach my eldest daughter about light, backgrounds and posing. She was awesome!….(must take after her mum)…. and while the end result isn’t probably what she was expecting, she liked the shot and learnt that a good photo doesn’t always have to be in the park surrounded by flowers with a smile on your face.
