Bateman's National Trust | Getting Some Fresh Air

Bateman's National Trust | Getting Some Fresh Air

Our aim as a family this year is to visit more National Trust properties than we did last year. In 2018 we were very bad at visiting places but we want to correct this for 2019. The first one that we ticked off the list was Bateman's National Trust which is the former home of Rudyard Kipling.

#MySundayPhoto - My Photos from the Week

#MySundayPhoto - My Photos from the Week

I thought I’d try something a little different this year. With #MySundayPhoto ending at the end of 2018 I wanted to keep posting on a Sunday and so I think I’m going to post my photos from the previous week that I’ve shared on Instagram.

My focus this coming year really is on Instagram and growing that. It’s the social media platform that I enjoy the most. Instead of sharing photos everyday what I’m finding works for me is sharing a photo every other day.

#MySundayPhoto - My Top 5 Photos of 2018

As it’s the start of 2019 I thought I’d share My Top 5 Photos of 2018. These aren’t the photos that received the most likes, or the most amazingly technical photos…these are ones that I enjoy.

Photos for me should transform you back to that moment when you took it, and make the person looking at the photo drift away.

How to Change the Eye Colour in a Photo Using PhotoWorks

Eyes are very often the most striking feature in any portrait and are practically mesmerising in some of them. If you’ve ever wondered what a portrait would look like if the eyes were just a slightly different shade or even a radically different colour – why not change it?

#MySundayPhoto - The End

Whilst it seemed like everyone in Sussex was still in bed I was up exploring.

This was taken the day after Boxing Day, it was a misty start to the day and I was looking forward to getting a few misty scenes.

As I was setting up the sky suddenly came alive, the sun was rising and bringing a burst of colour. It only lasted a matter of minutes, I was in the right place at the right time.

Merry Christmas!

I wanted to take a photo of a Christmas tree to share on the weekend before the big day.

This tree is located at the top of School Hill in Lewes. I thought a long exposure created an interesting effect and something a little different.

Kick Your Photography Hobby up a Notch

Photography is one of the most creative and fulfilling hobbies, and something you need to make sure you focus on moving forward. There are so many benefits you can take from being a photographer, and it is important that you make sure you focus on taking things up a notch and doing what you can to make your hobby more of a passion and focus on potentially trying to turn this into a career move.

#MySundayPhoto - Nature's Beauty

Towards the end of the year it’s the perfect time to take in all that nature has to offer before the festivities take over.

We live in such a beautiful country and I sometimes feel like we forget that.

This photo was taken overlooking Lake Windermere in The Lake District, one of the most amazing places in the World.

The Story of Social Media

The Story of Social Media

In Brighton you really see some amazing pieces of street art. This one by a.pozas_art is brilliant, and tells the story of social media in today’s World.

I believe the actual piece is called ‘Always 0 love’. I know nothing about art but I love the way this makes you think and it means different things to different people.

The Narnia Maze

The Narnia Maze

Not a landscape today, instead a candid portrait.

Over the weekend we visited Tilgate Park where they currently have their Magical Christmas. Part of this includes a Narnia maze with live actors. 

There were lots to see and do during the day but the maze was a highlight.

Street photography is something I don’t find that easy. I feel like eyes are on me and I just can’t get the look I’m after. I’m in a lucky position to be able to visit Brighton whenever I fancy and this gives me the chance to sharpen my skills.
