Top Tips For Photography

As Debs is still out of action, and photography is normally her ‘bag’, I thought I would use the opportunity to bring you my top tips for photographing little people! Now, I’m no professional, far, far from it, but I do have a lot of experience of photography attempts on wriggly, sulky, whinging kids (did I mention how lovely they are?!) and I know how frustrating it can be when you’re trying to get a good shot for relatives/thank you cards/the empty frame on the mantelpiece. Numero uno: Relax They… Read More

Beth Lofgren’s Interview On Photography

Hi, I’m Beth Lofgren of Beth Lofgren photography. When and how did you fall in love with photography? I started my journey in photography while collecting images from races I had completed.  The passion grew, of course as you will hear from many females, when my son arrived. A very giving photographer in the area where I used to live, Lauren Gill, saw my Nikon D40 on a table and asked me a few questions that sparked my interest further. I had hired her to capture my son during his… Read More

Inspritation For Photography

When and how did you fall in love with photography? About 4 years ago my girlfriend bought me a camera for Christmas. A Canon 350D. Quite a gamble on her part as I’d done no photography to that point but it’s working out ok. I certainly got more use out of that camera than the saxophone she bought me the year after! Have you had any formal training? I’ve done a couple of Brett Harkness’ (genius) day courses but that’s about it. How would you describe your photography style? Generally… Read More

An Interview with Portrait Photographer Natalie Dybisz

1. Briefly describe a Day in the Life of Natalie Dybisz! I get up between 8am and 9am, and go for a jog (most mornings) by the sea. After showering and having breakfast, I seem to spend most of my time on my laptop; processing pictures, replying to emails, preparing material for my blog and other website pages, and doing accounts, etc. Some afternoons I will go out and shoot, most often self-portraits, though the occasional collaborative model shoots too. I do intermittent chores throughout the day to take a… Read More

Aerial Photography – With a Camera Phone!

Some of you may have been up in a helicopter before but for those of you that have not, you’re harnessed to the inside of the helicopter and wear headsets in order to talk and direct the pilot. You also might have the camera tethered to a laptop and also a GPS. Given a decent pilot and an interesting location it’s not a difficult task to shoot some great images. The only real problem is the comparatively small time frame you get to archive the shots. Flying in London for… Read More
