obvious, yet beautiful
This image reminds me of a fence and dry grass at the beach. I love the composition. Yet it is only some old hessian lying on a table in our backyard while we build a shed.
As a mother I see my beautiful baby. CHEEKY!
As a photographer I can’t help wishing he had moved his chin down ever so slightly to get the best angle.
He LOVES that pillow.
I stood waiting for the sun to set. As it did my fingers froze and the sunset was not outstanding. A few images salvaged. Ironically, the yellow of the sun reminds me of the fire that waited for me at home.
Some of the others photos I took with Emily. As an experiment it was fairly successful. She came for about 3 and a half hours although I think at least an hour was taken up by me trying to set up the lights. Actually it was the Godox octagonal softbox. I would never be able to construct that thing or deconstruct it without help. I am not strong enough. Perhaps there is a better method than I used but it was like an awkward tent. Until I can afford one that just pops up umbrella style it makes good light!
I am a full time mum with 3 boys, 4, 2 and 0.
I have challenged myself to learn photography from scratch with no help in the 2 seconds I have free between feeding, changing and entertaining the chaos that surrounds me.
I dream of the day I can take more than a minute to locate, setup and take a shot. In the meantime, the pressure forces me to push my limitations and learn quickly.
