Many years ago I took photography for one of my GCSE's. Now this was in the olden days and as well as taking oodles of photographs I spent many hours in a dark room with various noxious chemicals - I was hooked from the start and have always loved taking photos. Little did I think then that we would have instant access to our photographs and a whole new world of social media built around this instant photography. A couple of years ago we sold our digital SLR and replaced it with a lighter, smaller digital camera thinking that this would be easier to carry around with us. I instantly missed the old SLR and no matter how hard I tried the new camera just wasn't the same. Last week we found a second hand SLR via an online add, I dug out a tripod from the depths of a cupboard and ordered a remote for the camera - I totally loved setting it all up and taking photos - I felt like David Bailey and it was great being able to take as many photos as I wanted with out having to cajole/ bribe a little person to do it! I just wish I had read the instructions for the remote and set it for a 2s delay rather than taking the photo as soon as I pressed the remote button.
I decided to make the top version of the Esme tunic (Lotta Jansdotter, Everyday style) out of a gorgeous Hemmingway designed fabric that I bought in the sales. My overlocker broke as I was halfway through finishing the last seam which was unbelievably inconvenient especially as I had some denim projects that reqired the overlocker planned - Oh well I will have to think of something else to make!!
The sitting down thing didn't really work out!
I have so much to learn about taking good photos (which these clearly are not!!!!)
I should have cut out a larger size but am determined to loose weight so stuck with the same size which does mean it is a little snug over the bust and arms.
Hopefully the next lot of photos with be an improvement. Back to school and work tomorrow - I am really not looking forward to setting the alarm for an early morning wake up!!
