Petra

Here’s a sneak preview from my recent shoot with Petra in Canterbury. It was a night shoot trying to make use of the street lights and shop windows. The cold was another challenge so thanks again to Petra for being brave!

More images to follow soon

Mr & Mrs Twiddle

Well I plan to add more posts to this blog and so hopefully you will learn more about me and what I do. I cannot share much yet from my most recent shoot but they are nearly all edited and ready to give to the lovely newly married couple.

I love to include details from the day as well as all the images of all the fun and excitement

Here for example a little vintage desktop calendar which was in the room for the Groom Preparation. I just thought it was lovely and a great way to show the date of a wedding in an album. I supply images in colour and black and white so the Bride and Groom ac decide which ones they like best for an album. A mix of the two works extremely well.

I hope to add another update soon with some images from their wedding at the Winters Barn just outside Canterbury.

Let me know what you think as I always love to hear from people !

Autumn

Had a great second shoot with Bex today. Planned an autumnal theme and shot in Mote Park in Maidstone. It is not somewhere I have been before but must have passed it a thousand times. A really lovely location so close to central Maidstone.

We shot in various places around the park and this was one that really stood out for me. i have always preferred portraits with flash in the past (which those that have worked with me will know) and I am keen to improve my skills with natural light. I am really pleased with the lighting on the shot below. No flash, no reflector just natural light.

Family Shoot

I had a great family portrait shoot with Mum Dad and Sebastian on Saturday morning. We were a little concerned about the weather as you can never rely on it in the UK. Swapping messages the night before and the morning meant we could make a joint decision.

It was looking a bit cloudy and rainy but we decided to go for it anyway. We were lucky as the sun started to break through as we met up on location.

There were some lovely beach huts as well as long grasses and the sea and so we had lots of places to shoot. Sebastian was a little tired at times but we had breaks and gave him time to have an explore and relax. We had some of his favourite toys as well which always help. Happy children make much better photos.

There are many for the family to choose from but here are a very small selection

 

Canvas Print review

Getting images printed is always something I love. To see your work in a large format which can be displayed for others to view is also a great way to get feedback on your photography.

I have an amazing photo that I took of some bluebell woods at sunrise. Well you may disagree but I love it ! I actually got up at 4 in the morning to get over to this location to wait for the sun to come up and get the lighting just right.

I wanted to get a Canvas printed and I have recently had one made by Saal Digital.  For transparency, the canvas itself was provided by them in exchange for an honest review, I am not being paid to promote them.

It arrived in very strong packaging and so arrived in perfect condition. I am pleased to say it really is good quality. The image is mounted perfectly to the frame and the colour reproduction is great.

If you have any questions – or want to buy any prints then please let me know. I hope to set up a separate landscape section soon.
