I will scan the article in very soon - yay me :-)

My 1st Photography assignment :-)

Well this week I've had my very first photography assignment and it was brilliant :-)

It was a Battle of the Bands audition through my work and I was asked to photograph the final leg of the search for the best band.

The venue was the Hard Rock Cafe, Manchester and I was so worried about the lighting etc but the results were pretty good for a first attempt.

More to come....

365 Project - June 2010

Another month and I am determined to get through this one with no technical interruptions etc!!

It has become so apparent to me just how much I love flowers and can't seem to get away from having to photograph them, I must try and be more creative with my subjects!
