Freckly Shoulders

If you’ve followed me enough on any of the outlets I use to talk about photography, you’ll have noticed I’m trying to understand shooting with off-camera flash. I think the light in this photo is well balanced enough, but it doesn’t look anything special. I’ve been beating myself up lately, laying in my bed with my laptop when I should be sleeping, looking at photos the strobist masters have shot, and wondering how it looks so amazing when mine look so ordinary. Hah.

 
 

Lookbook

Leopard print shoes, Topshop trousers, and a dress from Cult that I’m masquerading as a vest top. Oh, and silly glasses.

 
 

The Great Scottish Outdoors

This has to be the hottest day of the year so far, right? My pink shoulders are testament to this. My friend and I decided to jump in the Mini, speed out of the city and spend the day beach and forest hopping. We also brought my dog, Indie, which was a bit of a gamble as she doesn’t travel well, but we all had lots of fun. Gah, Scotland is so pretty!

 
 

Friday Night Glow

It was the first peep of sun we’d had in a month or so, or at least it felt that way. This could only mean one thing; a Friday night sesh on the terrace. There’s something really beautiful about the golden light the sun casts as it sets, and it always always always urges me to get my camera out. Always. Fortunately for me, my friends know that having a camera in their face is a given when you hang with me.

I also made a golden hour montage, which I uploaded to Flickr.

 
 

Yo! Sushi

I had a really enjoyable lunch at Yo! Sushi the other day. As much as I like that place, I usually find it too busy and polluted with noise, but we seemed to find a reasonable time to eat (just after 1pm on a Monday). I think I’m borderline addicted to sushi, though there could be worse foods to crave I guess. Anyway, the format of Yo! Sushi suits my appetite; I like the small dishes you can choose as you please and pick at. I wasn’t overly impressed with the pancakes though. Oh, and the lighting is awful for photos!

 
 

Self

This photo was taken at the same time my “photo booth” ones were (be sure to click the link so you know what I’m referring to), I just edited it completely different. I quite like the desaturated and moody look of it, I’ll be trying it again with a proper location and not so much a rushed job. And yes, I have no cleavage, but I have a really big personality. Really.

 
 

Bright Falls

Did you know I like video games? Mark gave me an amazing housewarming gift; a bright falls poster print. For those who don’t know, Bright Falls is a Washington town found in survival horror game, Alan Wake. Also, my dog Indie always seems to find her way into any photos I take of myself. Ugh!

I’d like to do more of these, even though — working from home — it’s not every day I even put clothes on. Sometimes I walk my dog naked. Not really. No, but yeah.

I buy most of my dresses from Cult as I find them to be quite quirky. This one is a bit short, but I’m wearing shorts underneath in case the wind blows in the wrong direction (which it totally did end up doing). …

 
 

Sunday in the West End

Today was one of those perfect Sundays; beautiful weather and an impromptu meet-up with a friend at Kelvingrove park. It’s strange, but walking a mere 15 minutes from my house makes me feel like I’m completely outwith Glasgow. Or at the very least it makes Glasgow feel less like a city. The real estate is completely different to the area I live in, I just found it all really charming.
