Chocolate and Photography


This year I had set a goal that I wanted to get back to enjoying my photography. I have started a 365 day project

All though I have missed a few days due to work pressure and working nights I am still enjoying it. Been creative and unique every day I have found challenging. I have looked at several websites for inspiration. One I have enjoyed is Don GIannatti @wizwow

He runs Project52.org and gives a weekly assignment and a deadline. The one I wanted to do I missed the deadline because I want to take my time and do it while I was off work on annual leave.

The assignment was to shoot for a local cafe with the theme chocolate and the finished image was to be square.


So here is the basic set up. 430exii on sync cable. Shoot on manual. Shoot at between 1/4 and 1/8 power. A Jessops 360afd on slave, At 1/4 power for background. And a vivitar 285hv camera right for fill.

Last Live Hull at Street Life Museum?

Managed to get to another Live Hull gig at the street life museum in Hull. Unfortunately this is going to be the last one. But I'm sure this won't be the last we will see of Live Hull. There is to much talent in Hull for it to fall silent.

I watched the 10 o'clock show a couple of weeks ago and it made comment on how for every pound invested two are made. They also stated that during the second world war Winston Churchill was advised to cut founding to the arts he said "what are we fighting for" (quote from http://supportthearts.co.uk/).

This point is made in a museum. We can learn from history. During this recession more and more kids are struggling to find work, or a creative out let. The Warren project does this and more. Over the last two years I have seen young adults working their arses off to make these free concerts work so they can showcase their talents on stage. And take pride in themselves, their work and also their city.
These concerts cannot stop. There is to much talent out there going to waste.
