The Dandelion Clock

Since moving to the Isle of Wight I have been working alongside the wonderful Hammie Tappenden MBE who has been helping to get me started. She Introduced me to the amazing guys at www.thedandelionclock.org who were designing the flowers for a wedding in Bonchurch and like myself are a new business and they needed some images of their creations for their website and I was very happy to oblige.  The moment I walked into the church the smell of these amazing flowers just hit me and the flowers were so impressive and beautiful. Huge pillars of trailing Hydrangeas, Lilies, Roses, lavender, Gladiolus and the most amazing foliage. These arrangements were the most beautiful wedding flowers  had ever seen the flowers were stunning. Anyone looking for Beautiful flowers for any occsasion give these guys a look!

NOFX O2 Bham 28th June 2015

So after watching Saturday evening amazing NOFX gig i decided to ask the best music manager around for the chance of a pass for Sundays gig and to amazement he said yes! So as I had not shot at the academy for at least 2 years i begun to feel nervous, could I still shoot live was I good enough? would the lighting be good? I charged up my batteries and of I went, Pass collected I waited double and triple checking all the settings on my cameras ISO set, aperture set white balance set. The lights dimmed and I got that fuzzy feeling of excitement I used to crave as we all got ready to shoot, the pit was quieter and being the only girl always seems to make it a little easier.

Out walked the band Fat Mike with bright pink Mohawk and sporting a French maids outfit complete with skull socks!, El Hefe looking so slim and excited to be playing again, Melvin shirtless with blue dreads as usual and smelly looking happy! So I started shooting and I think I remebered what I was doing as I seemed to come away with an awesome set of shots! plenty of posing from Hefe and Smelly and the lighting for the night was pretty good, I was happy we got 4 songs to shoot instead of the usual 3 as their songs are so short plus i got to shoot The Idiots are taking over one of my favourite NOFX songs. So now I have my buzz back, the spark I had lost by shooting gigs, my aim is to try and do more of this!
