With the popularity of editing other Photographers Pphotographs, I've decided to take it a step further and offer my services to design Wedding Books as well, I'm hoping to have my first from a Wedding Photographer in Glasgow, Scotland (watch this space).

Well today I completed what is hopefully one of many School Photo Shoots. It was for my daughters Pre-School and comprised of a set shot (we used the play kitchen as a background) and then I wandered around with the 70-200 taking candid shots of the children as they played, did puzzles etc.
I think if you don't have the right feel for shooting children, it could quite happily go very wrong very quickly, some children were very uneasy sitting in front of a stranger, who's asking them to sit in a certain way and getting them to smile for the camera. I think there was only one who we couldn't get to smile, and in fact she didn't crack a smile all the time we were there, even when she was having fun playing with the other children (I still managed to get a shot of her that is gorgeous though).
Roll on the next School Shoot!

North Eastern Ohio Based Photographer Lisa Beachler
asked me if I could remove some acne from one of her portrait subjects, as she had tried and said that the side of the face came out like a blurred mess. So I said sure send it over and I'll take a look..
Oh boy, I was expecting a few patches of zits, but oh no, this kid has a serious problem with it, apparently he's tried nearly everything to eliminate them, diets, creams etc and nothing will put a dent in them, well he hasn't tried my Photoshop skills!

Was just taking a wander through the garden when I spotted what looks like to be one of the young robins from the shed! I'm so happy that one has decided to stop for a while..
I'm going to try some dried mealworms to see if I can tempt it out into the open for a decent shot.
