My year with yellow… the story behind my yellow collection can be found here. It has been an ongoing project and a journey into themed photography as part of #AYearWithMyCamera challenge, there is a chance you have seen some of the photos before as I have added them to my “my yellow collection” but some of them may be completely new – all were taken with the concept that they would include yellow …
Sticking to the flower theme, sunflowers in August.
In 2017 I will be creating another collection inspired by the Pantone Colour of the year for 2017!
One challenge of photography is to try and look at things differently – you can easily get in a creative rut by doing the same thing and taking photos at the same angle – so I headed out in the sunshine with my Nifty 50 lens, with the aim to choose a spot – sit down and spend a few moments photography and experimenting with aperture to create a range of different images of the same scene.

So this is the first of my year two posts… I have signed up for Emma’s new challenge – #AYearWithMyCamera, which will no doubt be influencing some of my images… and I have started playing with some of the new equipment I got for Christmas … I have had a tidy up of the blog and I am just going to see how it goes.
I have a freshly calibrated and better monitor (discovered hubby’s was better quality than mine so swapped!) for editing… and I am all set for 2016.
