Determined to catch up! Here are a few of my July Highlights:

Commercial work

Another busy month for commercial work, including shoots at the Geffrye Museum, profile pictures for local businesses. I was also asked to take photographs for Star Well Being at the Fling Festival in Chelmsford, which you can read more about that at my blog here: http://blog.jaynelloyd.co.uk/2015/07/event-photography-the-fling-festival-at-hylands-park-chelmsford/

A family wedding

I had a lovely long weekend in Cornwall for my wonderful cousin Charlotte's wedding. It was a beautiful outdoor ceremony with a fabulous party in a huge tipi, and so good to catch up with family I haven't seen for a while.

Personal projects

I've been so busy with work that it's been a bit tricky to really push some of my personal projects, but they are continuing and hopefully taking some shape. The group I am documenting meet on Saturdays so wedding season has made it a little trickier to get there, but I'll be back in full swing in the autumn! In the meantime I'm messing about a bit more with other types of art, and had a proper go with my Grandad's letterpress this month.

Resolutions update

Exhibition of the Month: I don't think I managed to get to an exhibition this month - I did a lot more reading and saw some great work in magazine but, nope, failed on this one!

Learn: I went to a great symposium on 'Thinking Home' at the University of Essex - a lot of my personal work features home as a theme so I found it really interesting. I also went to a Speaker Expert training day on public speaking as that's something I need to sharpen up!

Make more art: Along with playing with the letterpress I've been keeping up the Instagramming and I'm carrying a sketchbook everywhere now too. I used to sketch a lot so I'm hoping to pick that up again too.

Enter more competitions: I'm keeping this one up and trying to enter even more competitions. As I said last month, having the the deadlines to work towards is helps push me along and encourages me to look more closely at my work, which has to be a good thing!

 

Weekly montage

I think my favourite montage this month was probably this one from 6th July So much colour and happiness!

Well, that was my July - how was yours?
