I’m not one to dwell on TV adverts but when it comes to the campaigns for expensive perfumes, male and female, I’m left dumbfounded. What the hell are they about. The visual symbolism goes way above my head and I’m pretty sure the “creatives” involved have been snorting far too much of that white powder. What we need is some straight forward no nonsense imagery so here’s a few more of my outdoor snaps.
It’s miserable outside so time to dig into the filing cabinet and find some photos taken on warmer happier days. Model number one, a cheeky blonde snapped in the back garden. The second set were taken at the bus stop just around the corner from my place. Passing motorists were most appreciative judging by the number of catcalls and car horns we got, or should that be she got. The final set shot in my usual happy hunting ground, the local rec.
For over a year now my electricity supplier has pestered me about fitting one of their so called smart meters. Being an awkward cunt I’ve resisted, until that is a couple of weeks ago when they tricked me during a phone call. I would like to let you all know that they really do save you money, well they failed to make the appointment so had to pay me compensation! I’m looking forward to the new date and hoping they don’t turn up again because I need all the help I can get with reducing my energy bills.
Although the bulk of my snapping is now done with a Nikon D810 I still occasionally use my Sony NEX-5N when working outdoors or when I’m feeling adventurous indoors under tricky lighting conditions. The results tend to be more miss than hit, probably because I don’t pay enough attention to the settings, I still find the controls on a single lens reflex type of camera easier to use. Here are a selection of passable shots plucked from a large number of candidates for the dustbin.
I’ve just finished my third shoot of the year. Once again the model was not new to the Chateau de Vaughan but she was sporting a slightly different look to when I first snapped her so I’m quite pleased with the results. I’ve also been playing email tennis with two very pretty models who have yet to travel to Rugby so I’m feeling kind of upbeat about my chances of new faces. We will see Mister Big Ears, we will see.
