Monday 31st Oct...

Busy weekend - one of the official photographers for the Great South Junior Runs/5k on Saturday and for the main event yesterday. Another 14,000 frames closer to a new shutter - in fact the photographer next to me yesterday suddenly groaned as his shutter failed ! Fantastic to see many people running and raising thousands for charity and congratulations to Rob Piggott of Believe & Achieve who ran as Frankenstein !
Today I had my grandchildren which is always fun - Darcie for a couple of hours and Theo all day so we took the opportunity to get some photos playing with the fallen leaves outside my place - unfortunately Theo fell out of the tree I was photographing him in - only about a foot I hasten to add - and lost interest.........Ben10 on telly seemed a better bet after that.

I used a 300mm lens on my Nikon D700 set at f4 to compress the background and used off camera flash controlled by my set of Pocketwizards - Theo was a bit perplexed as to how the flash fired when I was about 50 yards away !  I like the look it gives.
I'm doing more and more of these outdoor shoots now - they are natural, fun (for me and the subject !) and don't take too long - 30 mins tops and it's £45 for one 12x8" and two 8x6" prints although I'm having to increase the price in the New Year.

Amy & Kevin wedding preshoot 22nd Oct.......

Met Amy and Kevin at the Solent Hotel, Whiteley today for their preshoot. Weather was good - with all the good weather this month the trees were not quite as autumnal as they should be but the backlighting looks good.........

Hayley & Craig's preshoot 12th Oct 2011

We went to Old Portsmouth to do Hayley and Craig's wedding preshoot on Hayley's birthday. They were both really relaxed which  translated into the photos - here's a storyboard of the shoot:

It doesn't need to be a wedding preshoot for you to enjoy a lifestyle shoot though - a session starts at just £45 and the location can be anywhere you choose.....go to Ian Burnett Photography to check out the details.......

Stourhead trip 4th October 2011...............

Went to the beautiful Stourhead House and gardens today intending to capture the autumnal colours - except that it rained (well, drizzled) and there was 100% cloud cover ! Still we managed to get around the gardens and captured a few - probably a week/fortnight too early for the colours so may go again soon....here's a few images we took..........
