I've been feeling a bit uninspired lately. Especially with my photography. Sunday's RunTheGap really got me thinking about my landscapes (as per yesterday's post).
Today while I was doing some file clean up. I realised I still have photo's from my holiday to edit.
Then I realised, wait a minute, I have loads of panorama's!
And bless photoshop for photomerge :D

So this is my 1st pano I've created from my trip. The photo was taken while on a cruise to see the Glaciers in El Calafate Argentina. And yes the iceberb/s are that blue. The textures and colours are just breathtaking.

Here it is in Black and White as well.

A Landscape - for a change

If I could find my Grampians map I could tell you exactly where in the Grampians this is, but alas I have no idea where my map is.

When I first started photography (a long time ago), I hated taking photo's of people. I was seriously hopeless at 'portraits' of any kind.
So I stuck to landscapes, both natural and urban. I have some black and white prints (A2 size +) from back in the day when I use to process in a lab. I still love these images.
Now however I'm so use to photographing people that when it comes to landscapes, I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing anymore.
The other factor is time. To get some of the better shots, it means sunset and sunrise. Which currently is difficult to do being a single parent :(
So how times have changed.

So I have a mission to take some decent landscape that I can say I'm proud of.

So enjoy this one.

I realised the other day when I was out walking with my boy that I have been a bit slack this year with taking photo's.  Kids grow up fast and sometimes you don't notice changes until you look back on photo's.
Well I realised that I did not have a lot of photo's of me, Miles or Kayla.
So while my sister was down visiting I decided to set up my little studio and take some pictures.
Obviously the photo's of me in the shot, my sister pressed the trigger (I set it up however). The other ones I was behind the camera.

Obviously Me and my little girl. 
Even though she is not looking at the camera I still like it. 

This time she is looking at the camera, but her shoulder is up.
She now knows the importance of not scrunching up her body. 
But she is still a cutie

Eskimo Kisses!
I totally adore this shot of me and my little boy
This one definitely captures the love and moment.

Although the focus is slightly off on this one, I still love it.

My Boy being silly, but that's just how he is.

One that I took. Totally love his natural smile. 
Just noticed the dirt on his shirt. 
Well he is 3, and when you are a kid, you aren't having fun, unless you are dirty.

Well there you go, just realised I forgot to upload some of my girl.  So you may see this post edited later. 
Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Jelly Bean Markets

On the 6th of May I drove up to Horsham to be in the Jelly Bean Children's Market.

A friend told me about a post she saw on Facebook (it's a great networking tool). Well I got in contact with them, and it went from there.
As I am a family photographer this opportunity was perfect for me. So I got some frames, and organised a photobook, took some of my photo canvas' along and printed up a Jelly Bean Market special.
Didn't get any sessions booked on the day, but got lots of enquiries and half of my 'photo special' cards went, so that's a good sign.

This is my stall set up, next time, I'll bring a table cloth.

tfamily sp

I took this photo a few weeks ago, I've been so busy I just haven't had the change to upload it.

So this is the T family. Love to photograph, had fun out on a farm, the sheep thought that we were there to feed them when we arrived. They came running towards us. Stood around for a few minutes before realising we had nothing for them and moved on. I wish I had my camera out at that time, cause that would have been fun to shoot with the sheep, but oh well.

So enjoy,
