Waiting for Xmas

Those of you following my Twitter may realise that I am up at my family’s place in Perth (Scotland, not Australia), we’re just chilling out waiting for Santa to arrive, so I grabbed my Dad’s new lens (Canon EF 85 f1.8) and shot this image of Simon, my little brother, doing what he does best.

This was shot wide open and the quality of the lens really shines through, hopefully I’ll be able to borrow it more over the next few days!

New Years Eve

While my blog was updating itself at the start of 2009, I was at a party with some of my closest friends from school. I took advantage of the lowered inhibitions to take some candid portraits, all were taken using my 50mm f1.4 lens and flash bounced off the ceiling.

Thanks must go out to Bec & Dan for stepping in at the last minute and hosting a great party.
