#blackouttuesday

Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

I must admit that I...

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Richard Nuttall photography blog

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present to you the one and the only ‘Richard Nuttall‘.  I’ve been promising him I would do this for a long time so here I am doing it (so dear, stop nagging me, ok) – introducing you to his new photography blogging & portfolio site.

 

richard nuttall cover

I have only really mentions him here in context to a post, I don’t think I have really done a post dedicated to the special man in my life – well except when I wrote how we met. Richard’s is a freelance photographer, retoucher and digital artist. He also recently launched his new portfolio site and he will also be writing a photography/digital imaging and technology blog (completely different to what I write here then!). He has asked me to tell you all to check out this blog and if you’re interested in photography then this might be helpful for you.

So here is a little interview I conducted with him so you get a better idea of what kind of photographer he is and his background:

What age did you get into photography?

I think it was 19 or 20, when I started doing it in 6th form college.

Why did you get into photography?

I did it as A-level at 6th form and then conjoined into a hobbies. I also like to take pretty pictures.

Film or digital camera when you first started out?

It was a film camera, remember this was back in late 90s and it was still only film camera around.

Did you study photography at university?

Yes, I did a BA in Digital Art with a minor of photography (remember how you use to come down with me to the film lab?). I graduated 3 years later and did a master’s in photography.

How was it studying photography at uni?

For the first bit as a BA it was a lot of fun and you got to learn about various technique and play around  in a photography studio. The masters became to much academic and to much taking the fun of taking pretty photos.

How did you launch yourself a photographer after uni?

I sent out loads of speculative letters to various companies, this was before the internet was big and it was easier for an employer to see your portfolio in front of them.

How would you describe yourself as a photographer?

Fly on the wall, don’t like to take control – just snap away.

What is your favorite things to take photos of?

People, you get a lot of motions and expression from people.

What kind of photography do you do?

Event photography – wedding, conferences and business exhibition.

What camera do you use now?

Full frame DSLR 6D Camera.

Raw or Jpgs?

It depend on the situation, for professional photos its raw however only on a few shot it’s jpgs. It also depend on how much you tinker about after in Photoshop.

Editing tools?

Adobe Photoshop and Bridge.

What special skills do you need to be a professional photographer?

People person, punctuality, pervasive.

Off course this is only a little glimpse of him, you will find out more through his blog and through his portfolio. So I want each and every one of you to check out his new website.
