Last month I set myself a 52 week photography challenge in order to keep my creative juices flowing. Carrying on from last month, here’s February’s efforts
I wanted to do some ‘product’ photography of my Lego Mercedes Benz Unimog for a blog post on it. Whilst I was relatively happy with this shot I wasn’t with many of them
So for the following week I re-shot much of it…
This time a lot happier with the results. Green rug handily filling the place of grass, some old hard drives to create some terrain, and some cloud backdrop paper I hadn’t got round to using yet…
En route to a friends, but with some time to kill, I decided to visit Pleasley Vale, if it were in the middle of Derbyshire I’d probably visit regularly, but, I grew up a mile away from here, we used to go down regularly on the bikes when every single window was broken, and it was a dump, so you write it off as a location. Now though, they’ve regenerated the mills, filling them with businesses & office space, the old managers house has finally been demolished & rebuilt as swanky houses, and the mills look rather nice reflected in the water.
I do quite a bit of volunteer photography for the British Heart Foundation, this is from the “Take the Stairs” challenge at the Sheffield Arts Tower. All the actual ‘action’ can be a bit random, and happens in a small time window, so it’s a tough challenge to grab the reportage shots the BHF want, whilst at the same time also trying to sneak something in fun for yourself.
More next month…
