Need More Time!

Just like everybody else I am feeling the need for more time. After I have done a shift at work, come home and spent time with my family (kitten included), done some housework (grr), all of a sudden the light has gone. As any photographer will know, light can be a fairly important part of our image making process, perhaps it's time for me to get my tripod out of its case and for the first time in a number of years have a go at night time photography.

Devious Journal Entry

Devious Journal Entry

I think it's time that I start using Deviant Art a bit more as it's been a little forgotten. Today I managed to take out my home made pinhole camera and take a few exposures, I plan on doing this a lot more over this summer as I ditch other hobbies and interests to make way for my creative imaging work.

Oh well, better be off now as I have work early tomorrow!
