April 2015

Spring is in full swing and we're getting lots more lovely sunshine here! April was another busy month, here are a few of my April Highlights:

A Beautiful Spring Wedding

I photographed Georgie and Matt's beautiful wedding at Kentwell Hall this month! A full blog post is coming soon...

I also had some great venue visits with couples whose weddings I am photographing later in the year - stunning locations, can't wait!

Commercial work

This month saw some image processing work at a picture library, and some portrait photographs for the fabulous Liz Leatherdalde at Colchester Classics, amongst other, yet to be published work!

Editorial work

Following on from the publication of Old Tat magazine last month, I collaborated with Alice Freeman on another feature this month. It's off with the editor now so hopefully we'll see it in the next edition! 

Resolutions update

My One Line a Day diary and 1 Second Everyday have pretty much completely stopped. How rubbish! One line each day and 1 second of video should be easy to keep up! I might try to restart them again - I should!

Exhibition of the Month: I'm sorry to say I didn't make it to any exhibitions this month- terrible! I'll be making up for it in May... I did go to check out Kentwell Hall prior to the wedding though, and enjoyed the Tudor reenactments with Tim. Not an exhibition, I realise, but lots of learning and looking at the amazing building and grounds.

Learn: Well I did learn about Kentwell Hall and Tudors... The BWN had another great masterclass where I learnt a lot from Mary Keightley

Enter more competitions: This one is still going strong - this month I entered a couple of competitions. It's keeping me creative and thinking more...

New recipe of the week: I'm very sad to say that this came to an end this month :-( having been desperate to carry on it just got too difficult as I moved house. I think I kept it going for about 3 years so I'm still proud of that, but a bit sad to have lost it. Once I'm settled in the new house I'll probably try to keep up regularly trying new recipes each week if I can, though maybe not as strictly as before.

Weekly montage

I think my favourite montage this month was probably this one from 14th April - lots of spring colours!

Well, that was my April - how was yours?
