Truthfully I took around 2,000 photographs today. I’m only going to share one – because I can’t bare not having a blog up! It would be the first time I missed it in 150 days! That’s dedication for you. After approximately nine hours of shooting all told, I’m quite exhausted. The Wedding was absolutely beautiful though! I will blog properly about that once the bride and groom have had a chance to view their images (it’s only right they see them first!)


It pretty much sums up the day really – Love!

Clare, by her own admission, is a Photographer, Crafter & Oddity. She also makes beautiful jewellery. Since I’m fast running out of time before tomorrow’s Wedding I thought that I would need to be quite quick and creative with the images I shoot for todays blog – and since Clare’s wonderful earrings arrived today I thought I would shoot them! Clare has a shop on Etsy where you can see more of her fantastic creations.

Clare also makes fantastic food – if you’re feeling hungry and need to drool over some amazing food photography then check out her deviantART page and don’t say I didn’t warn you!

I initially started using a heart made out of twigs and lavender for the background. However that didn’t work too well – it’s a really misty morning with no slats of sunlight coming through so the lighting is a bit terrible. Then I spotted a gift card I had recently bought…

It’s dark blue with a strip of lace down the front of it – perfect for a background and proof that you can be artistic with absolutely anything (mostly). Silver jewellery in particular photographs well against a dark neutral background and so this worked quite nicely.

So that’s it for today – and possibly even tomorrow. I will be taking photographs all day tomorrow so I’m still meeting the requirements of the challenge – but the blog may well be a day late in favour of me sleeping at the end of a long day!
