photographers often get mislaid, so it’s best to label them. clipping a label to their ear seems to work best

esther did a two day orchestra school thing over the weekend which culminated in a concert yesterday afternoon. as usual every parent became a private archivist and we all enjoyed the concert through our own glass telescopes.

a true professional can set up his camera and hold a teacake and crumpet on his plate without them falling off.  he’s learnt well.

wedding photography course

i went on a wedding photography course yesterday. not because i plan to do any weddings (i definitely don’t), but because i’m interested in all the different bits

i asked the couple to hop to a tree, which they did. which was quite impressive in high heels (for the bride at least)

i need to explain what’s going on here. i’m taking a picture of a traffic warden who is taking a picture of the man in a brown jacket. he’s taking a picture of the white van, which is a congestion charge van parked in a no parking area. meta-enough ?
