My Muse!


It's hard to photograph Nick. He doesn't dislike the camera, however, his movements are so rapid that it is difficult to capture him when he looks at the camera. I have loads of 'eye roll' shots to share, but in all honesty it's not a great look! :)

The easiest thing to do is to give him the iPad and just go with the flow.








The second photograph makes me smile. I have this little trick of closing my eyes if Nick gets stuck in a loop of asking me the same old question again and again. He understands that I do not want to engage in his repetitive pattern. I love that he tried out my trick on me.




First attempt at self portrait in low light conditions.

Capturing Nick



Hi there

Just in case you haven't noticed, I have had a wee break from blogging. It's been great!

Nick is fine. I am fine. We are just cruising along, living life in the slow lane with the occasional adventure thrown in for good measure.

I am still practicing my photography. Check out my Instagram if you are interested. I generally post one image a day. You can find me here.

I have been finding it difficult to photograph Nick. He goes into *serious mode* when I pull out my camera! He is also constantly in motion. He blinks frequently and also uses his teeth to make mouth movements. It's quite a challenge to capture him with his eyes open and his mouth/teeth looking natural. :)

Anyhow, I have decided to practice my 'Nick' photography while he is using his iPad. He is conscious of me being in his space, yet he is very relaxed and expressive. Perfect for the both of us.

Watch this space!
