I thought this candid shot of a girl removing her make-up was quite sweet.

Melissa, thanks for the suggestion in your comment to try this image in Black and White. Here is how it came out, the reflective glass is less of a distraction here, in fact it’s starting to look like a cheesy art birthday card now.

I would like to do a lot more impromptu portrait shots, they are fun to do, and the results are probably more engaging to look at than pictures of old trees. I am a quite shy though, and asking strangers if I can photograph them, I find hard. So, if anyone wants to just walk on up and volunteer for a portrait session, feel free!

Hawthorn tree

I was trying a technique on this image using a long exposure, where the movement of the leaves and branches can be seen as blurred motion against the crisp foreground and sky. Unfortunately it was so windy up here, almost everything in the scene was moving!

WoodFestWales has been going for a few years now. It’s a chance to meet makers from all over Snowdonia and North Wales, watch axes being throwing, and buy some beautiful craft works at a fraction of gallery costs. This year it was a lot bigger. It’s such up-scale that it has you looking for the camping field and the live music tents. The crafts people looked a little bewildered at the volume of people passing by. The fairground ride owners looked overjoyed.

Lukas’s new tattoo, ‘The Birds’

This is the first completely posed portrait shot I have done on this blog. It’s shot outdoors in bright sunlight, modified (diffused) manually. I had ideas for juxtaposing these images together into a ‘double-page spread’ magazine style type shot, but really, they work better separately. Thanks Lucas.
