Day 62 (cheat)

I know, I cheat a lot. At least I’m honest. Really like the texture of this shot, hope you do too.

Great weather, great corn.

Day 6




I am so looking forward to the weekend.

It’s difficult sourcing images (not impossible) when your shoot times are too and from work. As the days lengthen, opportunities will become greater, but now I have to admit I’m struggling, hence the abrasive use of post production filters. I am not opposed surreptitious use of filters, but I’m old school. I’ve come from a film background, which is the greatest of disciplines. Get it right in camera. Or better yet shoot it how you want it in camera. The original of this images is ok, but not whoohoo! Hence the use of filters. Don’t think any worse of me, lol.City Blue


Why a separate blog I hear you ask?

Good question. The main reason is that the blog on people can’t subscribe too which has annoyed some of my growing band of loyal followers. Also, the play-light site is my official company site and I feel the content on that site should purely relate to the commercial and retail work that I do. This blog gives me a little more leeway to cover slightly off topic subjects that I feel passionate about and hopefully will make it easier for my clients and anyone interested to engage with me without necessarily feeling that they’re engaging with a company that at the end of the day is trying to make money like any other business.

So this won’t mean the end of the play-light blog, but the information on that site will relate more too the business.

Anyway, I look forward to blogging on a more regular basis about a more varied (but generally photographic) subjects and to answer any questions which you care to put forward to me.
