Yikes, this year is going so fast I fell behind! Quick, before the end of June, here are a few of my May Highlights:
Through my work at the Business Woman's Network I met a new client, with whom I did a cookware shoot. The images are yet to be released but it was a fun shoot!
For more of my commercial work visit my other website, www.jaynelloyd.co.uk.
This month I've been taking some time to really push my personal projects. I shot a lot more, and went to a portfolio review looking at my more documentary work. I think it's really important to push these projects as the improvements come through in all my other work, commercial, weddings - it sharpens my skills and creativity.
I moved house this month! That probably explains why things have been a teeny bit random... it's very exciting, I'm loving setting it all up.
Exhibition of the Month: I went to Photo London with my good friend Louise - it was a great event with so much photography on display we didn't quite manage to see everything in one day, but came away super inspired! We attended a couple of great talks by Ori Gersht and Todd Hido - will definitely be back next year! I also went on a tour of the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year exhibition, which I was shortlisted for this year. Very inspiring and spurred me on to try again next year!
Learn: I think the exhibition of the month covered that! As I mentioned before I also went to a portfolio review at IdeasTap - that taught me a lot and I'm working hard to put it all into practice now.
Make more art: Really pushing this at the moment, as I've said above. Still enjoying Instagramming a lot too!
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...
I think my favourite montage this month was probably this one from 6th May - lots of fun times!
Well, that was my May - how was yours?
