Last weekend I had the glorious privilege of photographing one of my favourite people's engagement shoot. Having been friends with Janine for over 14 years, the topic of meeting "the one" has often come up and rightly so for girls who wanted to make sure they found the right one before hitting the chapel in running shoes to meet the wrong one.
It was not only the happiest day for her when her "Mr Right" at last proposed... it must have been his as well, but it was also my happiest day! And when the question of being her matron of honour popped up you can be sure it fast became my next happiest day.
Janine, and Bruce, your wedding in June is going to be one for the books and we simply cannot wait to share in the celebrations with you.
For 2016 I thought it would be a good idea to enroll myself in something that could challenge me in terms of the subject matter I photograph on a normal day. Being the Lifestyle Photographer and Designer for Sutherlands Home Furnishing as my full time job I can photograph up to 50, sometimes more, beautiful pieces of furniture each week... My lifestyle and wedding photography gives me a nice break away from those confines allowing me to interact with some really amazing people. But I still feel like I need to branch out even more so that I can learn new things about me, and my photography, and my camera, as I photograph new things.
I signed up for the "52 Week Photography Challenge" which is open to everyone really - you just have to join the facebook group. The first weeks challenge is "self portrait". For a list of other topics in the challenge visit this link.
My rationale for my submission this week:
Another photographer who prefers being on the side of the camera that captures rather than the side being captured. I'm all the way from South Africa and in this "self portrait" I am sitting on my bedroom floor in the pretty Midlands of Kwazulu Natal. Being of the mindset to avoid the front of the lens still, I thought to portray a distorted image of myself. 3 pics taken with my 50mm (1.8 ISO320 1/250) layered on top of each other at different opacities in post. Self conscious me thought it a good idea that on top of the distortion, black and white would do me well in terms of hiding my "just woken up face and hair".
