This weekend has been all about work. Kat came down to stay with me after the MAD blog awards (Where she picked up the award for Best Blog Photography and Blog of the Year – so well deserved) and we have been busy busy busy planning, shooting and writing for Capturing Childhood.
I really can’t wait to share with you some of the plans we have – we are adding so many good things to our film and photography school next year (our newsletter subscribers had a heads up on part of that last week). But I do have to wait so please forgive me for teasing you so.
Despite having such a packed schedule we managed to take some time for a photo walk.
Kat and I have been friends for a long time now and we have met up several times and yet we have never taken photos together. I know. So we grabbed a camera each, a Canon 5D for Kat and her 7D for me and headed into town.
One of Winchester’s truly magnificent Farmers Markets was in full swing and we all know that I love taking pictures of vegetables. This time of year it is a riot of texture and colour as the harvest provides its bounty.
The gentle breathing, appreciating, compose and click of photographing was a welcome stillness amid the flurry of work. I loved seeing how differently Kat approached her pictures and shooting with Kat’s 7D was a dream and it has given me some camera ambitions for the future.
Our photo walk wasn’t all play mind you; I was also shooting Kat’s author photo for her forthcoming book. I’m not giving it away just yet but here’s Monty against one of the backdrops we used…
All pictures shot with 7D, 50mm f/1.8.
If you would like to join Kat and I virtually; both Collect the Moments and Manual Overdrive are open for registration.
