Today has been a very busy day as it was my first time being an assistant photographer at a wedding! I work with Jack and Tina helped me with everything that needed to be done which was brilliant. It was an amazing day photographing the bridal party getting ready to the church to the reception. The rain even held out for most the day which meant jack got most the outside photos done with ease. The couple were lovely and I had a great time photographing all day with Jack's camera. After the wedding we all went back to Jack and Tina's house to look through the photos and I got treated to martini's and Chinese :)
Today's picture isn't from the wedding as I was using jacks camera and wasn't sure it was right to upload the couple photos, so it is of the bad news I found out when opening my camera invade I needed it to find when Ro had grabbed it off me she has broken the filter!
I decided a while back that I wanted to start a 365 photography project Seeing others inspired me to take this step in photography, as i have been at university studying illustration the last three years but leaning more towards photography by the end of my degree and even doing my dissertation on documentary photography.
I wanted the starting day to be a day which meant something to me so I decided that today, the 16th June, which would have been my Mother's birthday who sadly passed away nearly 3 years ago, would be fitting. This project is in her memory and a gift to her.
The main photograph i have chosen today was taken in Central Park in New York city. At the moment I am on a 5 week holiday staying with my Aunty Parvaneh and Uncle Richard. I came here with my partner David and our daughter Rosina. The photography is of a small motor powered boat which people of all ages were sailing around a pond in the middle of the park. It is a peaceful photograph full of tranquility, hence the title. In the middle of the big city there is peace found by all in this wonderful park.
The two photographs below show the bulk of what I did today which was a photo-shoot, which I did for my Uncle Richard, photographing
the filming of a video being made for the Kickstarter website for his product Tricky notebooks. It was a long day but good experience
documenting a film being made.
