Active week

It may have only been a four day week (which is not over yet), but it has felt quite long and challenging.   I’ve circumvented that with ensuring I have squeezed in some activity to keep my body and mind focussed on things other than work.  Monday I completed a session on the exercise bike…

Another assignment completed

I completed another Photography assignment this week. With thanks to Enda, I have more experience of headshot studio photography. I also had to capture an environmental photograph which depicts him in his workplace, this was more challenging than I expected (especially as he has a non-traditional role).  The photos came out well though as I got…

A relaxing week in Espana 

Richard and I have returned from a lovely week in Spain.  We had a lovely week chilling out, enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and the nice weather.  I enjoyed a couple of runs along the prom (although a mid afternoon run in gales wasn’t my best idea).  I even joined Richard at the range for a…

VR and Drone Photography

Who would have thought that I would be able to produce HD 360 VR footage of Richard and I flying our drone on the beach!? What is truly remarkable is that the kit we used is consumer grade, off the shelf stuff and all fits within one small bag. Kit list: Yuneec Breeze 4K Drone…

More London and a Weekend of Photography 

I made myself take a proper lunch break in the week and took my Fuji X70 out with me on my walk. I had no plan and no route but snapped away whenever I felt inspired. Some things I’ve shot before. Some I haven’t.  I also tried a more abstract approach to street photography which…

Being corporate

My next assignment for my photography course covers corporate headshots and environmental photography. I was lucky enough to secure some willing models from work to help me practice. The theory for this seems straightforward but adding the complexity of light, flash, modifiers and posed subjects is quite a bit to take in. Thankfully my models…

This may come as a surprise…

… I actually managed to get out and go for a run! I finally feel well enough to get my running shoes back on and get back out there. I am not sure my chest/nose would agree as I had to stop a couple times due to the cold air but I am happy I…
