It’s been crazy around these parts recently. I now have a 1 year old who is totally in love with electrical cords, the heater button and running toward the road given half a chance. My husband hurt his back at work doing yoga of all things and is slowly returning to work after several months and we have been slowly plodding along with house renovations at a glacial pace.
I was supposed to attend 'The Nursery' photography workshop at the very first one in May but with Regan's injured back and a breast fed baby, it just didn't happen. I had been anticipating this workshop and had heard only good things so on Saturday I took a road trip by myself complete with pumping music and the most beautiful scenery to Werri beach on the South Coast of NSW. I arrived at the 'black shack' where Tim and Kesh live with their completely mesmerising son, Roo. (WARNING: He will make you clucky!)
Tim and Kesh were so warm and welcoming as we entered their home, feeding us scones, made by the very domestic Tim and caramel slice, by the lovely Kesh. My aim was to be able to take great shots on manual and to say farewell to my old friend auto for good and although I feel I have a long way to go to reach the calibre of images I hope to put my name to, I feel that I am now well on the path.
His mantra is to take thousands of photos over hundreds of days and it is evident in his teaching method, as is his passion for capturing love through emotional connection with his clients. He also covered technical skills in shooting in manual and how he works in editing and filing his work which was something that I was so interested in with my random folders scattered everywhere!
We finished off the day at the very VERY windy headlands for a practical shoot with the lovely Gabby as our model. The wind and cold could not deter us though as we were itching to use our new found knowledge and had so much fun. Thanks so much Tim and Kesh for welcoming us into your home and for my fellow amateur photographers who were such fun on the day.
So here are the photos from the day. I still need to get some editing software as these images are straight off the camera and might need a slight tweak but I'm pretty stoked with how they turned out.
