Winter Holidays

Sorry about the lack of blog posts but the school holidays are here, we are at the end of week one, and I have barely had time to check the emails let alone blog about anything.

We haven’t been particularly busy doing anything, but having three kids at home is busy enough, and the hubby has taken a few days off leave too so that just ads another person to take over the computer πŸ˜‰

 

I am really excited to have two upcoming weddings booked for November, I had put my photography on hold to have my last child, but I am itching to jump in and start really building the portfolio so I can turn my hobby into a business.

So in preperation I am exploring if I need to buy/hire a new lens, my friend kindly offered to lend me his wide angle Tokina 11-16mm to see if it would be of any benefit to me.

I headed out to practice last Saturday in our little village at Evandale.

You can fit so much in the view finder! I was amazed when I tried it at home, I could fit my whole lounge room in!

It would certainly be a benefit to have a wider angle lens in my collection.

Here are a few more from the day, these shot with different lenses that are better for portraits.

    Gorgeous photos, Nicole.
    Love the ones of the trees and of course the ones of your beautiful children.
    I hope the weddings go well, and look forward to seeing the shots.

    You really have a talent and an eye for the camera πŸ™‚

      Thanks so much Grace. My poor blog has been rather neglected these holidays.

    Hi Nicole,
    Almost thought you were in England when I looked at the first shot.
    Beautiful location and fantastic pics of the younglings. πŸ™‚

      Probably feels like England πŸ˜‰ not that I have been there but I’m guessing.

      Thank you πŸ™‚ She can pose when she wants to, most of the time she doesn’t want to :/
