Where does the time go? The last month has flown by – I guess because we have been quite busy.
Every couple of years one of the largest Dancing Schools in the area puts on a show at the local school. On the last couple of occasions we’ve then been asked to photograph all the various costumes and dance groups. This involves two days of mayhem when we take close to 1000 photographs which have to be whittled down to about 250 and then edited. The school’s Principal is, quite rightly, very meticulous and the poses have to be ‘correct’ in dance terms as well as creating pleasing images. It’s a real challenge as well as good fun – and a lot of work which is just about complete.
We did manage to get in a couple of interesting shoots between the busiest times and editing those is also complete. One of these was based around a number of different themes. Yvonne had come across some work by another artist, Vicente Romero Redondo; the style of which we thought might translate into photography, so we thought “why not”. I think the results came out very well, and our subject is very happy with them.
And so to what we’re planning next……..
We have a major, major project on the horizon which is very exciting. I can’t say too much at the moment but wow! To be honest this one is wholly for us but the results should be spectacular! More about that in future blogs.
Now the weather has finally turned into a spring of sorts, we’re hoping to get out into the great outdoors for some location work. It’s also a mad dash to get our large garden ready for use as our outside studio – but we’re getting there.
In other news: Yvonne has joined The Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and we’ve finally managed to book some one-to-one training with Trevor and Faye Yerbury. We spend around two weeks every year training and this is something we’ve been wanting to do for quite a while; so we’ll be off to Edinburgh for a weekend in the not too distant – and coming back all fired-up and ready for anything.
