I have been in an artistic "slump" and haven't been doing any photography for quite a few months. I decided not to fight it and just to accept it and enjoy the period of calm and rest .... but am really pleased to say, "I'm back" !
I could see the Summer storm clouds building last night and had to get to Camber Sands as I knew the colours would be great. Fortunately Paul came with me to help carry all my gear #hesastar x
I think the photography God was watching over me and welcoming me back as I not only had great clouds and beautiful evening sunlight, but also horses and even a rainbow :)
Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas; a time for spending with family and loved ones :)
Still miss our beautiful Molly so much and this pimage really makes me smile with such happy memories, she was such a sweetie x
Beautiful walk out in Sissinghurst this weekend, just love these colours of autumn.
Delighted to hear from Emma Keating Jewellery that she is being featured in the preview of the upcoming Handmade in Britain - The Contemporary Craft and Design Fair in Chelsea, featuring one of my images.
If you get the chance pop along and see her; her work is stunning.
We have had such an amazing end to our Summer that I can't resist sneaking in another trip to Camber when it looks like a beautiful sunset and low tide. Unfortunately I didn't get the big skies that I love but there were only about a dozen other people on the whole beach, so it was wonderful. Then a group of riders came out for a gallop on their horses in the sea; such a special treat to watch them :)
hART is a collective of professional artists in the South East and I am delighted to be a guest artist and joining them for their next exhibition in October. Full details are below and it would be lovely to see some familiar faces if you can make it :)
Creative editing in Photoshop was used to create this "Fantasy" effect character portrait which I named Azura. Delighted to be awarded first place by the judge in the club competition for this image.
The project was to alter an existing nature image, and be really creative with processing it and let my imagination go wild. I decided on a "fantasy" composite (blending and adjusting a number of images in Photoshop to make one). I had an image of a tiger from a visit to The Big Cat Sanctuary in Smarden and also had a photograph of a young woman holding sunflowers from the summer and I decided to combine both of these and contrast winter/summer in the image.
Such amazing skies here recently; I couldn't resist capturing this yacht sailing away...
This image was taken with a Lensbaby Velvet lens, resulting in the "soft" effect.
