My latest photoshoot

I had the priviledge of running a proper [albeit small] photograph shoot at a friends house last week. The little lad, Ben Sheppard, was adorable but tricky to shoot. He didn't smile much making it difficult to get a good keepsake for the folks. Never the less, I bagged some good ones and my favourite is above.

I definitely am developing my fondness of people photography and am going to develop this further. I think it might be my strongest aspect of photography and one that I am keen to improve on. My next purchases are going to be in this direction. I am hoping to buy a support system for backdrop fabric [its such a pain to constantly get someone to hold up fabric for you], buy a batter grip to aid shooting in portrait mode, buy a reflector to help eliminate those nasty shadows and then maybe some studio lighting!

Lake District again

A couple of weeks ago I was in the Lake District for a family holiday. My wife and I enjoy low level walking and with the arrival of our new baby girl, we had to stick to easy to manage low level walks. This however didn't prevent me from sampling some wonderful places to photograph.

My favourite I think is Rydal Hall where I was able to photograph some lovely waterfals. Have a look at these and let me know what you think.
