ig love

Since I finally got around to obtaining a phone with a decent camera I've gotten right into instagram.  I love that I can quickly capture the pockets of light I find and the little moments around me without having to drag my SLR around, and edit on the go!  I have a ridiculous backlog of editing to do on my personal snapshots of the family so I don't want anymore to pile up.  Us mums are time poor creatures.  I have plenty of ideas written for when I can actually get out and shoot, but being able to take these snaps in between makes me feel like I'm still creating which makes me happy.

please come say hi on instagram @myfavouriteshoesarenone
ps. I don't do many food pics or selfies (except for that one above).  promise.

Book | Film | Painting

One day when I was clicking around the internet I stumbled across Stuart Pilkington's project he curated called Someone I Know.  He had given selected artists the brief of photographing someone they know and I love the simplicity of this, and how beautifully everyone's images work together.  I emailed Stuart, and later he wrote to ask if I'd like to be involved in his next curated project Book Film Painting and create an image responding to either a book, film, or painting.  I chose Rachel Power's book The Divided Heart: art and motherhood and created the above image of my eldest. 

Geek speak: I shot it on a Nikon FE with 28mm lens on Fuji film, and it's a double exposure created in-camera.
