We had some sunshine today, which is just as well as I had a portrait shoot! It was engagement shoot with a lovely couple who are getting married this year.

This image was taken purposley for this blog, I exposed for the background to give high contrast and a nice silhouette it also works well with the city on the horizon.

I would love to post some more but not until the couple have seen them first!

Nikon D700 80-200m f2.8. RAW. Lightroom.

Have a good day 🙂

It quite a bit of convincing but managed to talk my daughter into posing this morning. Dont get me wrong, she is beautiful and likes the camera but its more of a rebellious “oh dad, do I have to?, I have stuff to do you know!”

I was graced with five mins of her time and grabbed about six images. Why is it the things that are closest to us are the hardest to photograph? Is it because we are so fussy and want the best, no image is ever good enough??

A bit of rain never hurt anyone, right?!

Well I think this may be the worst springtime weather for years. Lots of rain and dark grey weather. How can you plan photo shoots in this state?

Previously I have cancelled, rescheduled and come up with different indoor locations. However, if this is the new spring and summer wet season I think I am going to have to adapt my shooting style. I am all ready looking for waterproof covers for the Nikon, and for the flashguns. How do you cope? Do you have any canny wet weather shooting tips?

Here is a sample of this weekends engagement shoot. I am very pleased with it, the red coat really adds lots of colour to what otherwise is a very grey day!

Whats your thoughts?

French wedding photography

I have made a wedding booking this week with the lovely Abigail and Dermot.

They are getting married in Saintes, France this June. It is such a beautiful venue with three locations for photography. It is over a weekend.

I am also looking forward to the pre-wedding shoot either in the New Forest or at the beach… will post some portraits later. :->

Good times :->
