Whilst trying to get my feet into the wedding photography ground around Derbyshire, I managed to get the opportunity to do a good friends wedding in Huddersfield. Dave and Natalie asked me to do their photography, and whilst it being only my 3rd wedding which nerved me somewhat I nevertheless agreed and after some reassurance talk from the bride and groom any nerves were soon put to rest.
One thing Dave and Natalie did keep bringing up was the fact they would like me to be a guest and a photographer, this was challenging and on the day despite being told numerous times to take a rest, I couldn’t put the camera down in fear of missing them vital shots. The day was beautiful and the wedding was fantastic and I was very grateful of the opportunity I was given and therefore wanted to do my best to capture they day as I saw it, I hope I did.
I have posted some images in my gallery here: Dave and Natalie Wedding
I hope you enjoy them.
So my other love is flying or anything to do with aviation and while I was fortunate enough to be down at the bournmouth airshow this week where I got to see the red arrows perform once again their amazing display it never quite beats sitting up on Beely Moor nr Matlock, Derbyshire waiting for one to fly over making us diver for cover. Fortunatly I didnt dive for cover (although my 3 yr old nephew did) but as usual it always seems that near the end 1 red goes a little stray and does a fly over for us toggers and enthusiasts waiting on the hill, this time it was right over me.
Heading right towards me and at some speed make lots of a noise I did my best and snapped as fast as my camera would. Due to the horrible weather and white sky results on the camera didnt look great but once I got back home and did a litle processing work these particular 2 are the ones I liked the best.
Picture or no picture having a red pass over you feeling like you could touch it (obviously not!) making children dive for cover is always an experience!
This is when i spotted it!
This was it a few seconds later
I have decided to start a blog, not only to keep anyone interested on what im doing or where I am but also to maybe give an insight to other photography I do apart from the wedding and wedding and portrait photography specialised on this site. Ill do my best to keep this updated as often as I can, always a difficult thing it seems for me (need more time!)
