So this is the shot. My first attempt at photographing a semi clad person. Here is totally lit by natural light for a big bay window. It came out ok, I think. Well he is happy with it at least.

Since then I have been very fortunate in being selected to have some of my images displayed in Gallery Raw, in the Hunter Street Mall. Opening night this friday. Yah! Sure there is always two sides to a coin, the downside here is that some people are unhappy that i had so many images selected. But I am proud and happy. I'll be flabbergasted if anything sells, I think the shots are either a bit personal or too obscure to be seen as wall art by the masses. Again, I am very happy with my achievements and delighted that Gallery Raw exists and is available to enthuasists like myself.

In dire need of a break from the coal face, I wangled a week off. With an RDO at the exit end I now have 10 GLORIOUS days off..........but what is a girl to do with 10 glorious days off? Well if today was an average day I shall in face have 10 glorious exhausting days off!!

Shuffling cars, mothers and loads of washing gave way to an afternoon birthday party for a beautiful one year old Eliza. 165 images later (oh I should have shot in jpeg not 21mp Raw) I am still converting to jpeg now. Downloading took FOREVER, but did give me a chance to get some dinner into me and some washing up done. I had hoped to upload a photo or two to flickr tonight, but I don't think that will come to fruition now.

Tomorrow I will have my first ever attempt at shooting a semi clad person with my flash/softbox combination. MMMMmmmm I THANK HIM for being my guinea pig. I don't really hold out hope for great images, but Rome wasn't built in a day, apparently!!
