After five long, hard days, I have finally returned from my trip to The Sci-Fi Weekender in Wales.

I spoke to many attendees, got lots of interesting facts and figures, did a lot of networking, and of course, took thousands and thousands of photographs (one of which can be seen above, but only small, as a “teaser” for the rest) that literally almost maxed-out both my memory cards!

Photographs, a full Event Review and more to come in the days and weeks to follow (but for now, I need sleep!)… Watch this space!

Figure Facts for GEEK 2013

I photographed myself in the large mirrors, as I was atop the main games hall on a balcony. I quite like the blur here, very appropriate given how I hate photographs of myself - lol

The number of photographs that I took throughout GEEK 2013 were 562 for Thursday’s Preview Day and Evening Launch Event, exactly 1000 for Friday, 1039 for Saturday, and a tiny 136 on Sunday due to illness and having to go home early.

That is 2737 in total, an average of 684.25 photographs per day!

Phew!

Snow Photographs: Coming Soon…

Image

I have not posted an update regarding my photography for some time, so here is a quick one to assure you that I am indeed still working with my art. For my existing Portfolio , see the Photos section on my FaceBook Page, as I am currently re-designing my website.

Snowy Photographs Preview

I will be uploading full size images from my snowy photography outing(s) shortly, but here is a preview in the meanwhile.

Theme: Snow/Winter/Christmas
Location: Clitonville, Margate
Date: 20/01/2013
Description: I was ill and bed-bound for the majority of the snowing this year, but I was able to venture outside for a short while nonetheless, and these are a few of the shots that I was able to get during this time.
Notes: I have done two snowy shoots this year, these are from my first.

Voir La Lumière Rouge

Model: Mark Sutton
Place: Canterbury
Date: 09/06/2012
Description: I visited Canterbury to photograph many of the historical sites, but this backdrop seemed to perfect to resist, so I stole away Mark from his own photography for a spontaneous photoshoot, and this was one of the resulting photographs. Very happy with it.
Notes: The image is unaltered. Constructive critique and compliments are always welcome.

Coming Soon…

I have been busy the last few days helping a friend, and during this period, I was not able to type, but gosh, did I click! My camera has been a busy girl, flashing some beautiful shots of nature. Nothing journalistic, of course, more just contributions to my more personal Portfolio, but it has been many weeks since I last took a snap, so I am quite please that I am “back in the game” of photography to say the least.

That excitement and happiness that I felt when I was behind that lens, I missed it very much. I have been sitting affront my computer screen for so long, typing away for hours on end about all manner of subjects, but there is just something more passionate and meaningful to capturing moments on film – allbeit digital.

I have decided that I am going to be looking for local events to attend and photograph, perhaps even report on, pairing my two passions together at last. Doing that would be a big step for me.

So, I am finishing (and Posting) the articles that I have so far on the film and television industry which are very much picture-less, but hopefully still an enjoyable read, and then I am going to try something more journalistic and factual, as apposed to opinion-based.

Wish me luck!
