In early May we went for dinner in London. Trying to never be without a camera, we used the opportunity to shoot a few of the London hotspots, including a long exposure of Tower Bridge at night. This is a town rich in history, with buildings dating back to the second century AD. We love taking time out of shooting weddings and couples sessions and just photograph something for us. Something different, something we don’t normally do and something to just have fun.
Being such a huge place; it’s hard to cover much of the town in one evening – with that in mind we’ll definitely go back soon at cover a different section. We used a mini tripod for the long exposure shots here – everything shot on a Canon 5D Mkiii, Sigma 35mm Art lens and Sigma 85mm EX lens.
Deep in the forest, sheltered from the gale bending and bowing the pine-tops above us, we experimented with a coloured smoke grenade. Pouring out first as plumes of bottle green smoke, we listened to the creaking trees as it spread thinly and eerily across the needle-strewn forest floor.
To us, family is one of the most important things in life. We’re strong believers that family isn’t just your blood. It’s those that stick by you, rejoice with you and would do anything for you in hard times. They are simply the people you are most happy to do life with. Ash grew up with 3 brothers who are all now growing their own families. One Saturday in early December we took a walk with Jason (one of Ash’s older brothers), his wife and two kids. We don’t tend to photograph families all too often, but this opportunity was too good to miss.
Saturday 21st November we spent with the mighty Ed Peers. Kat and I had a workshop with Ed to really step up our photography skills and business to the next level. Needless to say, we learnt and a LOT and are also glad to have made a new friend. Here’s some shots we took during the day.
