February 2015

Well, February whizzed right by in a blur! 

Here are a few of my February Highlights:

Commercial work

Not really commercial work, but not wedding-related, was a shoot I did to raise money and awareness for Farleigh Hospice. The #Love4Farleigh event was with artist Tracy Shave and other local businesses, and is continuing as an online project. You can read more about it on my commercial blog here: or joining the Facebook Page here: https://www.facebook.com/Love4Farleigh

I also had another great day working with the team at WFP Fire and Security, this time taking new team portraits as well as a bit of on-site documentary photography.

Resolutions update

My One Line a Day diary and 1 Second Everyday are sort of still going - I'll admit I've forgotten to do videos on a couple of days (or run out of space on my phone!), and my diary is a little behind at the moment. But the beauty of it is that I can work backwards and catch up on one line a day fairly easily. Must do better though!

Exhibition of the Month: I actually went to a few exhibitions this month including the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery was interesting to see, but what I really enjoyed was Grayson Perry: Who are You? I loved how it lead you round the gallery (some parts I have to admit I hadn't actually been to before!) and the work was incredible. It's on until 15 March and is free so I highly recommend a visit. I think we can also watch the Channel 4 series on 4oD so I'll be trying to do that later: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/grayson-perry-who-are-you I also managed to pop along to the Photographs' Gallery, which is always good for inspiration.

Learn: I went along to another meeting of The Old Girls Club, where I listened to some excellent speakers and came away feeling really inspired. Still trying to read more, but the French isn't doing so well I'm afraid...

Make more art: I'm still working on my personal documentary project, so that's ticking along nicely and I'm looking forward to see where that leads. I'm having lots of fun on my iPhone at the moment too just messing about on Instagram, but it's a little bit of creativity in everyday life. 

Enter more competitions: Now this one I'm really going for - I entered a few competitions this month, and I've signed up to a monthly competition which I hope will be a lot of fun and get that creativity really going!

New recipe of the week: Is still going strong! I've even got a bit better at photographing them, so I'll be boring people with my creations in my weekly montages! The oven is fixed now too so I can go beyond the hob...

Still going strong here too! I think my favourite February montage was from the 23rd:

How was your February?
