Sometimes, OK well a lot of the time, I get really excited by an idea of what to shoot. When this manic phase comes about I find it hard to sit still or do anything else until I have executed my idea, and then obviously if it doesn’t work out then I get a bit mardy. Although mardiness aside it is a learning curve and it is usually these times when I learn the most. Learning from mistakes is the best way to learn, for me at least. So when shots go wrong I just chalk it up as experience (after a strop) and know what I should do differently next time.
I was worried that today’s shot would be one of those “experience” shots; I had a few ideas for today floating around in my head, then after visiting grandparents I decided to go and buy some material to make a blue skirt, luckily I found a vest top in the exact same colour in a cheap clothing shop opposite the market where I buy my fabric. Victory!
I went home with my purchases and knew that I should really wait for better lighting. The cloud that we had this morning had burnt off and we had glorious (31°) sunshine with barely a cloud in sight. The manic oh my god I must take this shot phase had come about though, so off I went.
Instead of trying new editing techniques I more practiced to an extreme level ones which I already had experience with and ended up with this.
I love books. I have bought a Kindle, but let’s be honest this shot would not have been the same with Kindles floating about. Nothing beats the smell, touch etc of a book. An actual proper book.
In other news my internet connection has been really bad for the last few weeks, and if nothing else it has brought to light how much I rely on the internet for daft little things; like looking up locations before I drive somewhere. Hopefully it will be getting sorted soon.
