Photography is all about capturing moments. Fleeting, special moments.
A couple of weekends ago we bumped into some friends at Hitch Wood, our local bluebell wood. The light streaking through the trees was stunning, and the ground was a carpet of violet and blue with dapples of fresh green. Magic.
I’m not a massive fan of having my own photo taken. There can be a real awkwardness about being asked to stand, for what seems like an eternity and then ‘spontaneously’ smile – on demand. And it’s certainly no way to capture any essence of individual personality or special moment. I prefer to let people just ‘do their thing’.
