What does “Into The Future” mean to me?

I strongly believe in ghosts. I know it’s a controversial topic, a lot of people don’t believe and won’t believe until they are presented with compelling evidence, or seen one themselves. About three years ago, I started watching the TV show Ghost Adventures, mostly out of curiosity. I was shocked to find the startling amount of exciting evidence which I found hard to disprove. If you haven’t seen this program, I absolutely recommend that you watch it! I feel excited we have such wonderful technology that can capture ghosts efficiently, from shadow figures and apparitions to EVPs. My “In To The Future” photograph is based on my hope that more people will believe in ghosts, and we will have even more amazing technology to be able to contact them. The figure is of a ghost longing to be heard and seen. 

I hope you liked the images I took for the #KatieJadePhotoChallenge. Have a beautiful weekend!

What does “light” mean to me?

During week four you might have seen me discussing my favourite type of lighting with you - backlighting. My first thoughts were to take another backlit photo, but I felt I’d just be repeating myself. There is SO much you can do with light it would be a shame to not experiment. I started to think back to an episode of America’s Next Top Model (cycle 14) I watched, where the photographer put a piece of patterned fabric between the model and the light source. This technique works like a stencil and leaves a dynamic motif on the model’s features. Using this as inspiration, I placed lace between myself and the light source to create a pattern across myself. It was quite tricky doing it by myself as I had to work the camera as well as making sure I was framing myself correctly and placing the lace in the correct position to create the design.

Tomorrow I will share the last of my images from the photo challenge. Have a lovely day! 


Temptation - #KatieJadePhotoChallenge

All this week I will be sharing the images I took as part of the #KatieJadePhotoChallenge. Today it is all about temptation.

What does “Temptation” mean to me?

I’ve always loved fairytales and recently I have become ridiculously obsessed with the TV series Once Upon A Time. The series has reignited my love for Snow White and her story. For my photograph I wanted to focus on the importance of the apple. Will she, won’t she give in to the tempting, delicious apple that the Evil Queen gives her.  I love the bit in the Disney film when the poison drips from the apple forming an image of a skull before it turns bright, blood red to conceal the evil within. The Queen claims it is a wishing apple, knowing Snow’s love for the Prince, tempts her to make a wish to be with Charming before taking a bite. I’m also a sucker for a love story, so when the Prince wakes her from the sleeping curse by true love’s first kiss makes me go all silly and giggly! 

As a child I used to carry around little toys of the seven dwarves. I found it difficult to part with them, even to the point when we had a family photo shoot where I refused to let go of them so they were in the photographs too! My favourite dwarf is grumpy, what is yours?

I hope you like my “Temptation” photo! Tomorrow I will share my “Light” photograph with you..
