I Eat, Breathe and Sleep Photography

I’ve had a long and fruitful weekend, loaded to the brim with photography! From shooting, to editing, to uploading, to appraising, to critiquing, to choosing, and learning new techniques for ideas, I pretty-much eat, breathe, and sleep with photography!

It’s now 9pm (after watching 2 episodes of TBBT) on a Sunday night, and I still have stuff to complete before retiring back into the working week at my day-job. (And this week is going to busy with interviews, appointments plus catching up with a friend I haven’t seen in over 12 years!)

[1] Last Friday night was spent photographing attendees at the ‘Taste Furniture Store Launch’ at Payneham. Karen Foster offered me the opportunity to both be a guest and to photograph her event. But I don’t think she realised how involved I would become.

For two hours on Friday night, I either shot interesting images of the furniture around the shop or approached anyone who was standing alone and asked to take their photograph. Towards the end of the night, I stopped asking. It helped that during speeches, Karen told people who I am and that I would be the ‘professional photographer’ for the evening. (I still get a ego-boost whenever I hear it said by other people!)

[2] After a good nights sleep (yes, I managed to descend into the bed at a respectable hour, around 10.30pm), I spent a sunny Saturday going through my many photographs, picking those that would be perfect for online display.

Whilst I had told others that I would have them online before midday, it was closer to 5pm before I had finished editing and uploading!

Here is a sample of the many beautiful women who allowed me to photograph them:

But wait, that is not all!

[3] Between all of this, I uploaded a dozen photographs of furniture to my flickr gallery. Here is one of two stitched panorama’s of the interior of the new ‘Taste Furniture’ store at Payneham.

This is now being used in Mia’s article about the store launch (on Facebook).

[4] And between all of that, I helped my wife design and build her labels for her new honey business. More about that soon!

Whew, what a weekend! It took me an hour to compile this post! Yet I wouldn’t have it any other way!
