life through a lens












Well I am an emotional wreck! Can't get enough of the olympics - every time I here the crowd roar I seem to well up let alone seeing these amazing athletes do so well and hear how much it means to them.  I think it's just been incredible.

Life's throwing lots of twists and turns at the moment some insanely happy and some which are just heart breaking. I'm fine and working hard - but I think the next few weeks is going to be tough. So please bare with me.

For now here is my life through our new 40mm lens - it's not the 35mm dream yet but it's a step closer and it's a cute lens.

  1. I've just bought a 50mm lens and I'm finding it hard to get used to. I want to do it all in manual.. and getting the adjustment just so is a challenge. I will get there. I love the image of the purple verbena flowers. Gorge! x

    1. Lou all my photography is done with the 50mm and once you get there it's so rewarding! There is a lot of twisting and learning though! I love you work and photography Lou so I'm sure you'll get there!

  3. Another weepy one here - seeing the sheer determination and grit on display has been so inspiring but the moment the first note of our national anthem hits with a Brit winning gold I suddenly well up. National pride perhaps?

    Beautiful images as ever but I'm a total sucker for clouds, lavender and cheeky little faces especially :-)

    1. Jem I am rubbish with the anthem - and sometimes I well up for other countries too! Amazingness and the Queen on Twitter is so right and they should release it as an Olympic single!

    1. Nell I was in pieces! I also seem to have a belief that if I to shout and scream at the tele they will be able to hear me - the boy is not impressed!

  6. i'm used to be so much more invested in the olympics when i was living in europe. it's a different atmosphere and people are so much more excited about the event. just recently i was looking at the 40mm and reading the reviews. people seem to be happy with it. would you recommend it? oh, i'm also a big fan of the 50mm. it does take some time getting used to it, but the results are so much better for it.

    all the best!

    1. Hey leyla,

      It's very distracting being this invested in the olympics! But as I've got a lot of photo editing done and did some crazy graphic design work for a very big client I don't think I've my work load has gone down at all - just my music listening and evening reading! Am soaking it all up - just wish I'd got arse into gear and thought about getting tickets! hey ho..

      40mm lens - is great! Love it.. It's tiny and makes the camera look ridiculous but it's also super light and portable so a bonus to my chunky 50mm. I only got to use it briefly at the wedding last weekend as Oli was assisting and got to play with it - but he did some beautiful portraits and it's just that bit wider which also works really well with group shots. It's also really well made and has a lovely quality to it. Bit of a bugger it's 2.8 but the fact it's a pancake lens makes up for that.. so, so far really pleased! Hope this helps!
