Back to the blog.

Hello again people, i have decided to restart my blogging this year after disappearing since mid 2017. I previously lost all motivation for photography and through attempting to keep it going by starting a new blog and posting weekly, i struggled to find motivation to go out and take photos.

Recently after speaking to a friend, I have decided to launch a brand new blog to do with running, as a keen runner I will be blogging about my running journey leading up to my first half marathon and attempting to give advice to anybody who wishes to get out there and go for a run :). More details coming soon and there will be a link at the top of the page.

Back to photography I lost all motivation for going out and taking photos apart from the odd occasion where i have gone away on trips, last year was NYC, USA and Warsaw, Poland. I had restarted my instagram originally for just my landscapes photos but in general rather than posting on 2 separate accounts turned it back into a photography page, recently gone through the archives and picking out the best selection of images going back to 2012, I have plenty to add so I will continue doing this, I will also be going out on new photo walks and trying to get my photography mojo back.

I will post a separate post with a link to some of my recent images posted on instagram this week.

 

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

On tuesday (12/7) I took a short trip over to Scarborough, North Yorkshire for a nights stay. Despite the rain, still managed to get out and about with the camera, here are a few shots from my iPhone whilst I catch up on my photo editing backlog.

Then as I was heading home, the sun was out.

Overall it was a good little break, now I have got my interest in photography back my motivation seems to be returning too.

All Along the Rooftops.

Not long ago I joined a new group on facebook (Leeds Photography Group) after been told by a friend about it. They meet up a few times a month to go out taking photos and on Weds (5 July) I joined them for the Car Park Rooftops meet up.

Here are a couple of photos I have worked on so far.

New instagram

To go alongside the website refresh, I have created a seperate instagram account just for my Landscape photography. I will still post on my normal account too but i am keen to boost a social media presence so I have decided to create a landscapes page in the hope i can boost my sales and exposure of my work.


The Trick with instagram is to find the right hashtags for your photos, but you are limited to no more than 30 on any one photo in the description bar. 

I found this article online that I found useful. https://fstoppers.com/originals/three-easy-ways-drive-new-followers-your-instagram-free-instagram-tips-part-1-159155

Resolution Run

On sunday (5.3.17) I took part in the Stroke Association 5K Resolution Run at Temple Newsam in Leeds. 

The Charity supports people who have been affected by stroke and the families, you can learn more here

I completed the wet and rather muddy course  in 37 minutes.
