New Year, new commitment to blogging! January tends to be a little quieter on the actual photographing weddings side, but it's been busy in other ways. Here are my January highlights:
I absolutely love seeing my couple's weddings printed in albums. There's something so special about seeing the photos beautifully printed on gorgeous paper and seeing the story of the day as you turn the pages. Elena and Tom's wedding looked stunning in print - all those gorgeous colours really 'popped' on Folio Album's fine art paper, and the leather covers coordinated perfectly.
I tend to have lots of meetings and planning sessions in January, and I was really excited to meet with a couple getting married in the spring and be asked to photograph their wedding. They are having an afternoon tea reception which sounds like a really lovely idea! I still have some availability for this year so if you would like to meet for a coffee and a chat about photography for your wedding do get in touch!
Last year I made a real effort to push my personal projects. I'm carrying on with my longterm project with a local charity, and I've also just started shooting a new project - more details to come on that next month.
Last year I was a bit more definite with setting resolutions and trying to report on them each month in this blog, even as they all started to slip away! I haven't really set proper resolutions this year so I won't bore you with reporting on them too much, but I have taken that annual opportunity to set a few goals, try a few new things and improve habits, like keeping up with my blogging!
I've been lucky to go to quite a few exhibitions this month - Listening at Firstsite was quite haunting and I particularly liked Cabin Fever by Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller - it made me jump! The London Art Fair was really interesting too, but I think my favourite exhibition this month was Gathered Leaves by Alec Soth at the Science Museum, particularly the Niagra series.
This is something I've carried on with over on my other blog: www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/blog I think my favourite montage this month was probably this frosty little number:
Well, that was my January - how was yours?
