Hello blog followers… I’ve had a busy time with work and travel recently including a trip away in Ireland last week, which was really enjoyable and productive as always. I’ve kept my schedule quite chilled out for the next week or so, so I can catch up and wind down before going on holiday soon (away for a city break to Rome & Venice, can’t wait!) and I’ll make sure to update on some blogging too.
I’ll start out with an awesome set I have to post here by George Swift, from my visit up to Newcastle in June. I adore these results! First posing around the ancient standing stones in the dewy early morning…
Then we worked at two beautiful waterfalls….
I love how even without any colour, the sepia edits are just so rich and textured I think you can ‘feel’ the mist and the fern and the moss in them even more, and how the shallow depth of field makes the leaves of the trees blur and swirl into the background.
I felt like I could fit perfectly into the scene, and embraced the chance to be the classic forest nymph. As I know I’ve posed in this sort of style a lot, sometimes I feel I need to try not to do it too much, but when it comes down to a luscious, natural, fine art backdrop, I know my strengths and it just works, so try and stop me! 😛 Soft delicate plants, natural light pouring in, amazing sounds of the water, energized by the fresh air and surrounded by nature in my own skin – I am in my element 🙂
