Hello Darling Lovelies – I’m just back from a creative photography workshop that was fun and inspiring in equal measure (and there was cake – just sayin’).
Regular readers will know that I’m a bit of a hobbyist photographer. Lately I’ve been really keen to improve my skills and Emily Quinton is somebody I’ve followed and respected for a really long time (oh my goodness, her Instagram pictures…). Her work is just beautiful and, try as I might, I could never figure out how she creates such gorgeous images. I won’t give away her secrets here, but I will say that I came away inspired, excited and so eager to start trying out all the new tricks and tips I learned at the workshop.
Because it was an Emily Quinton kinda day, the room was filled with gorgeous props to play with.
Those are some of the shots I took on the day, then I went home and went a bit nuts buying fabrics, props, confetti and all sorts of fun things to play with. I won’t share all of the images now, because the whole experience has inspired me to post an exclusive image here every day, regardless of anything else I post.
So, on that note, here’s the first image of the day, I used one of Emily’s beautiful prints in the background:
For any budding photographers out there who want to learn to set up and style scenes and capture them / work with light and learn to edit, I’d highly recommend one of Emily’s courses – the next one is in September, find out more here!
