Day 31 | Lemon Drop

I thought I'd give this fruit splash a go with a lemon we had lying around in our kitchen.
It took a couple of lemon drops before I eventually got the above pics. I'm not too happy with them. 
The whole lemon looked a bit boring so I thought I'd slice the lemon into wedges and try that but didn't get quite as much splash as I wanted with the wedges. 
Because I had no more lemons and no other fruit lying about, I settled with these two photos. 

Settings (in case you wanted to know): 35mm f2 1/1000s ISO 400.

Day 29 | Editing

Deadlines. Enough said. 

Ava, Emily, Marizanne and Kyle | Family

What beautiful girls! Ava is a picture perfect seven week old baby and her older sister, Emily, is seven. Both are super cute! Emily is extremely adorable and is very protective of her little baby sister. 

Through this shoot, I have found that babies/children are definitely my favourite subjects to photograph. There's something so magical about photographing their little faces and capturing their moments and personalities before they're all grown up.
Hope you enjoy the photos Kyle and Marizanne and thank you for letting me photograph your family.

Today's sudden change in weather from 36' degrees to 36' degrees plus humidity and rain resulted in a very dramatic grey sky. 
The tiny black dots in this photo are Amur Falcons that roost in Newcastle every now and again.

Day 22 | Welcome Macro

Today I welcomed a very special lens into my camera bag - one I've been wanting for 
for many years. 
Welcome AF-S Micro Nikkor 85mm 1:3.5G! 
So what better to try it out on then our wedding rings? 
Hopefully I find some slow-moving, interesting, bright, funky bugs soon!

This is a skill my mom taught me and one I try to find time for at least once a week. My latest project is a colourful stripey blanket for my husband. It's taking me a bit long but hopefully he'll have it for Winter! :D

Day 20 | Milk Splash

I thought I'd give this milk splash a go. Hundreds of shots later, I finally got it. Sort of.
