Well, I’m not sure “running behind” is an appropriate phrase: there’s not been any running, although this week has seen me returning to the gym in an attempt to balance increased carb intake with resistance work. We shall see how that pans out and impacts blood sugar levels.
However, the “running behind” more relates to it now being Saturday, one or two days behind my nominal posting days.
I’ve been continuing my reading of Syl Arena’s “Lighting for Digital Photography”, and decided to press Mrs G into having her portrait taken last Saturday evening after we’d returned from York. Moderate success, but I think what it most taught me was not to try to put new techniques into practice whilst tired and on an empty stomach. More thought is also required with regards to the aim of the photography, rather than “take your portrait whilst trying out these new techniques”, otherwise problems that could be thought through in advance cause annoyance and demotivation.
Portia had a big adventure in our bedroom on Thursday morning, which lead to my first diptych upload to Flickr:
Unfortunately when she clambered too far off the ground the camera had to go down to ensure she didn’t have a sudden, dramatic landing.
It’s the one year anniversary of us moving house today. Time to celebrate.
Happy weekend, and happy photographing.
