A few months ago I had planned with my friend Hayley to shoot when she was back in Somerset and I was fortunate to be able to do so over the Christmas holidays. We had close to an hour taking these photos, had a lot of fun shooting with Hayley who has a good instinct in front of the camera and I’m really happy with the photos. Hoping to shoot with her again in 2018!
I tried taking some self portraits Monday evening, attempting to use white balloon lighting (cheap alternative to a soft box) as well as trying to incorporating the use of a prism in front of the lens for some nice effects. Really wasn’t the easiest of tasks to try alone but look forward to hopefully using the techniques when I have someone to model with me. That said I was reasonable happy with these results and had some other decent photos from the bunch I took but don’t feel I want or should post too many photos of myself!
I went along to the Somerset county ground in Taunton watch England take on South Africa in the 2nd of three T20 games. The Local lad Jos Buttler made his second return to the ground since leaving Somerset for Lancashire back in 2014 and he got a warm reception from the home crowd. The twitter users who added the hashtag #EngvSA during the game had their tweeted photos put up on the grounds digital scoreboard.
Jason Roy was the only batsmen on the day to get to a half century.
Eoin Morgan catching AB de Villiers who was just 4 runs away from his own half century.
South Africa won the game by three-run.
This is Marlee, a friends gorgeous 4 month old Vizsla cross Labrador puppy. She came to visit and have some interaction with our two Black Labs on the weekend, firstly joining is for a walk down the lane before having a run about in the garden where I took some photos of her.
