July, a busy month

West India Quay DLR station July was a prolific month for me and my camera. I shot 1,320 photos.
First, there was a street shoot around West India Quay and Canary Wharf, a workshop arranged by Wex Photographic and sponsored by Zeiss Lenses. Reflecting in the heat This was coupled with a shoot with lovely model Mandy Woodford. By the way, in the shot with Mandy and the passing bus, there was so much natural light that I couldn't get a slow enough shutter speed to capture the bus motion, even at f/22 and my lowest ISO. So I added the motion blur of the bus in post-processing with Photoshop.

Next, my friend Georgie (a.k.a model Pandora), whose wedding I shot last year, asked me to do a maternity shoot. She gainfully waded into the stream in The Rye, High Wycombe, wearing a flowing maternity dress that she had bought for a snip on eBay, and which she discarded after the shoot. Georgie ponders her daughter's imminent birth It had got rather mucky in the river. (The truth: I took it home and laundered it. It's fine!). By the way, the baby, a lovely daughter named Taylor (great name!) has since been born and I'm off to shoot her later this week.
