So as I mentioned I haven’t done a blog before but I figured 2015 is the year in which I want to push myself so that means doing things that I’ve never done before.
I always find January to be a tough month, December is always hectic with christmas and a lot a family birthdays including mine and the new year so it always takes a while to get back into the swing of things and get my head back into the working mode. Luckily I recently redecorated my office and now it feels more like a professional office than my spare bedroom. (I work from home)
January can be a little quiet for work as I think everyone is getting back to work and wading through the countless emails that have piled up over the christmas break. However I still had some interesting jobs this month. I work with a local shopping centre called the Dolphin Shopping Centre and they have recently had all new signage put up so they required both day and night time shots, I really enjoyed the night time photography and I think this is something I would like to explore a more and experiment with.
Something else I’d like to experiment with is uv light photography, I recently discovered Von Wong on youtube and I was blown away by his photography check it out for yourself here: http://www.vonwong.com/blog/uv/
This month I have also been taking some landscape photos just for my own use. Landscape photography is how I first became interesting in photography, I live near the forest so ive been taking short walks into the woods and photographing the landscapes. It’s fascinating seeing how the same landscape can change depending on the time of day and weather. Sometimes to woods appear dark, sinister and scary but then on a beautifully sunny day they appear happy, calming and even magical or maybe thats just me??
Right I think thats enough rambling on from me, February’s diary is looking very full already so Im hoping its a good sign of things to come in the next year so I guess I better crack on.
Have a great month and see you later. x
