Block Art meet up

As you may have seen I am taking a bit of a break from shoots but I went along to a recent event organised by Block Art which had a spring theme. We started in Westgate gardens and here is one of the shots I took there.

The sun was setting behind so we had some beautiful light. For those that like the technical info this was f3.6 at 1/1100 on a Fuji X100t with a £10 conversion lens from eBay on the front.

Jack !

Well I have been quiet in the last few months and continue to take a break for the moment. This is do to the arrival of our son Jack !

He is my priority and I absolutely love spending all the time I can with him. I will be back shooting again in the future so if you are interested then by all means get in touch. It is likely to be more into the summer when I start new projects.

In the meantime here is one if Jack !

Film Noir ..

Had a great shoot recently with Block Art  (Block Art: Themed Photography Evenings) which is a local camera club that do themed Photography Evenings.

The theme this time was Film Noir and there will be a collection of different images from other photographers to tell the story. I am really looking forward to seeing all the different interpretations and will add a link to the Facebook album here when it is ready

Thanks again to Peter Sladen for organising and models Alex Vellis and Hrista Karapeneva

Here are some of mine from the evening !

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.
