Lookbook

A lookbook is a collection of photographs compiled to show off a model, a photographer, a style, or a clothing line. It is an especially popular term with “fashion bloggers” and is even the name of a website: (Lookbook.nu). — Wikipedia

So pissed the focus on the face is soft, I think my shutter speed was too slow. Anyway, this is an Armani jacket complimented with a scruffy face. Beards FTW.

 
 

Twin Atlantic @ The Barras

The Twin Atlantic gig was incredible. w00t. Yep.

 
 

ISO 6400

Meet Sean, being shot in The Social at ISO 6400 while I was a tad drunk. I have a noise reducing plug-in for Aperture, but I honestly think the grain suits some images. Plus, this was shot at ƒ1.4 and the focus isn’t great. If I had removed the noise it would have looked even softer. I don’t think Sean likes this photo of himself, but look at that smile!

 
 

Sloan Street Market

I am loving all these wee street markets Glasgow has to offer. This one was based just off one of Glasgow’s busiest streets, Buchanan Street. I’m definitely not into my jewelry, but they had so much quirky stuff that I ended up buying a camera necklace. It’s hot.

 
 

Hippy Fest at 13th Note

Hippy Fest; a bunch of people sitting on the dingy floor of a stinking music venue, enjoying the acoustic sounds from their friends and new acts alike. I took my Speedlite to this one knowing how dark the venue would be, but I gave it to my friend who’s camera could only stretch to ISO 1,600. This was more like a 6,400 job.

Admittance was the cost of a hug, the floor was wet where I happened to sit, but I got to see a lot of the people I spent my college years with. Too much time passes before I see these guys, and I’m not entirely sure why.

On my way there, however, I was accosted by a “spiritual” man who claimed he could tell we would make “the best couple”. After I politely refused his offer, he got quite physical with me and claimed that as he was a man, he could get what he wants. Well gentlemen, there’s something you should know about me… I am the boss, ok? And you’re not getting what you want, pal.

 
 

Glasgow’s Gallery of Modern Art

A reflection of Glasgow’s Royal Exchange Square in a pair of sunglasses, in particular the Gallery of Modern Art. I’m loving this warm weather we’re experiencing. This was taken while enjoying some al fresco Mojitos yesterday afternoon at The Social.

 
 

Kids

Life has been a bit heavy lately, it sure is tough being an adult. I look at this photo I took over the weekend and can’t help but feel nostalgia for the age where there were few responsibilities, any ‘problems’ were truly trivial (at least in my very relaxed childhood). Having said that, I wouldn’t give the independence of being an adult up for anything; even mornings watching Biker Mice from Mars and afternoons at the skate park.

 
 

Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday and not a chocolate egg in sight, but I did have a great day outdoors in the West End of Glasgow. We turned up late to a charity bike rally, so late in fact there were no more than six bikes left. This was followed by lunch at The Loft, which reminded me of the underwater world, Rapture, in Bioshock (that’s the gamer geek coming out in me).

There was a street market happening in Ashton Lane offering cupcakes, vintage clothes and the like. I do love Ashton Lane with its cobbled street and cool bars, good restaurants etc. It has a great vibe. This was the Ashton Lane Street Market in its first week, so I hope to see it pick up steam and perhaps come back for better photos.

 
 

Early Summer Nights

These warm evenings are making me feel summery, even if it is only April. I can’t wait to get some garden furniture for my terrace and enjoy a few ice cold ciders out there. Last night, however, my friend Gary and I enjoyed dinner and Diet Cokes at Nando’s. Seriously, you can’t go wrong with a Nando’s, but a Nando’s at golden hour = perfection.

 
 

Girl With A Camera Giveaway

To celebrate the launch of my new blog, I wanted to give one lucky visitor a chance to win an A2 poster print of one of my pictures. Choosing which picture was tricky, but I decided to go with a recent shot of Glasgow’s Clyde at night. This shot has the BBC building, SECC’s Armadillo, Crowne Plaza hotel and Clydeport crane in it, with lovely reflections on the River Clyde that will look fantastic framed. Awww.

To be in with a chance to win, just tweet “Girl With A Camera is giving away an original print. I’m in, are you? http://girlwithacamera.co.uk/giveaway #gwac”. A winner will be chosen at random when the competition closes, which is Friday the 29th of April 2011, because it’s not all about the Royal Wedding.
