Okay….(I can hardly type with excitement!)…in 48 hours I’ll be winging my way to New York City for my month long stay! So, I wanted to tell you what’s happening and where you can find me online.
First of all, this website. I will be posting New York photographs on this blog. You will also have the opportunity to buy prints of these photographs, thus owning an iconic image of New York and helping to support my trip too!
Big Apple Unpeeled. This is where I am going to be very active, bringing you news, stories, photographs and videos from New York. Pop over, it’ll be ace and I want you to get involved too!
4am Project. I hope you can all take part on the 17th October! I’ll be blogging over on the 4am Project website AND I’m organising a 4am photo walk in Times Square.
So my bags are packed, I’ve got a few dollars in my purse and some comfortable walking shoes. I’m all set!
The new year is just around the corner! I thought I’d take a moment to compile just a few of my favourite photographs of 2009.
I still haven’t blogged a lot of my photos from this year, so must make it a resolution to catch up with that!
It’s been a wonderful year which has seen my photography business begin to bloom. I hope for it’s continued growth for 2010 and will be working hard to making that happen. I quite fancy doing a spot of pet photography and wedding photography. They are completely different genres and I will need to do a lot of research into those areas.
2010 will be the year of the 4am Project. It’s my global photography project which asks photographers to take a photograph of the view of their world at 4am. In order to make it grow and get the word out I shall be dedicating a lot of my time to that. It’s going to be a very exciting time!
I will be seeing in 2010 at Digbeth Coach Station. Nicky Getgood, Digbeth resident and blogger of Digbeth is good has had a crazy great idea of spending from 6pm to 6am at the newly re-opened station. Somehow she has persuaded me to join her! I am not as hardcore as Nicky though as will spend just a few hours before and after midnight at the station. We plan on documenting the life of the station and it’s travellers, so I will have my camera in hand. It’s even got some press attention with the Birmingham Mail writing about it. Wish me luck
I shall just take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy new year! I hope 2010 is good to you. I’ve met some wonderful people this year through blogging and twittering, and made many new friends who are very inspiring.
My latest job for the Birmingham Post & Mail took me to The Horse Of The Year Show at the NEC to photography Katie Price aka Jordan. Katie performed a dressage to music. I was given a 80-200 lens, and used my D200 camera. The lights in the arena were turned down low with coloured spotlights as the main lighting. I had to boost the ISO up 800 and was reluctant to go any higher due to noise. I love my D200 but at this event found it frustrating due to the noise factor. I couldn’t have dropped the shutter speed much lower with the subject moving about. Anyway, here are the results. I really enjoyed the experience, and the opportunity to photography a ‘celeb.
