I am using these two photos for a Camera Club Print contest on the 17th Jan, I am daring to be different because in my experience, judges of camera club competitions are somewhat staid in their choices of the prints that get good marks….The ‘Champagne Bubbles’ shot was taken in a pop up light tent using my Lens baby 2 and my D200 at F4….I wanted to make a greetings card for a friend of mine, in the glass is some Elderflower Champagne which I had made in the early summer, my friend always made the stuff and I vowed I would make some one day…and I did! Pauline also gave me the pretty little shoe. I put some tiny diamantes in the glass and a few popping out of the glass to make it look like the bubbles were popping…now this is one of my favourite greetings cards and just by changing the words it has become a card for all occasions!
‘Will It Ever Stop Raining’ is a shot I took on New Year’s Eve, Barry and I were having a car-to-car picnic with Ali, Jez, Millie and Maddie because it was simply bucketing it down, somehow, Millie knew just how to make a sad face for Grandma, after I took this shot she pulled some amazingly funny faces, she’s a star!!
