TESTING THE WATERS

Model: Julia Sinclair

Having taken time off from personal photography and blogging for the past 9 months has left me in a somewhat uninspired place. My portfolio looks stale to me - the photos are either old or impersonal. I'm slowly dipping my toes into the creative pool again, testing the waters, seeing if I can remember how to swim. This shot is a result of that - one lovely Cambridge afternoon, I grabbed Julia and Jack and we went for a wonder with the camera. This shot doesn't go with the rest of the shoot in the slightest, but for some reason, I love it.

BETHNALS

Just over a week ago, I got the chance to shoot the launch event for Bethnals, a startup denim brand, and got a pair of their Pete Skinnies in return. The brand produces beautiful, high-quality unisex denim, which has quintessential London written all over it.

I have somewhat annoyingly-shaped legs and always have trouble finding jeans that fit nicely, so when Mel, the brand's designer, told me the sample pieces were probably my size and that I should grab a pair before I leave, I couldn't help but be a little sceptical. I actually changed into them in a store on my way home to quell my curiosity and - lo and behold - they fit perfectly. And were so comfortable. And looked awesome. And - just - WHAT??? The minute we got home, I made Jack try them on to put the whole unisex thing to the test - another perfect fit. They looked completely different on him, but equally awesome. By now I felt like one of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and had to be restrained from running out onto the street and making random passersby try the jeans on.

My point is - Bethnals are great. If you want to find out more, check out their website and their Kickstarter page - and if you like what you see, then pledge!!!

THIS FEELING IS BITTERSWEET

Final year took its toll and I've been gone from this space for months as a result, but I am proud to say that as of last Friday, I am a fresh graduate. In my four years at Cambridge, I have gone through the lowest of lows and the highest of highs, but somehow emerged on the other side with nothing but wonderful memories and incredible friends (and also a law degree). That said, I'm now ready to pick up my camera and breathe some life into this blog again! So hello, world, I am back.

CASUAL CASUAL

(photos via Net-A-Porter)
I'm diggin' this Current/Elliot Tshirt so much, not only because I've been to all but one of the cities on the back of it! Tokyo is my next holiday destination and then I can legitimately cough up £145 for a T =)

Miluju tohle Current/Elliot tričko, nejen protože jsem navštívila všechny města na jeho zádech kromě jednoho! Takže na příští dovolenou směruji do Tokya a pak můžu oprávněně vyhodit £145 za jedno triko =)

INFINITY + BEYOND

So many Jacks, it makes me dizzy! This was fun to photograph + composite, although it's a bit of an imperfect Photoshop job, but I have so so so much to do, you can't really blame me. Thus the weird extended absences from the blog. But I'm slowly (very slowly!) getting my act together and getting everything planned and organised like a proper control freak, as it should be. Anyway, I shot this by literally taking a zillion photographs, telling Jack to take a step back and to the side after each one. Unfortunately I didn't have a tripod on me, so this was dodgily hand-shot and then composed / expanded / corrected... Can you tell which of the legs are fake? =P

Tolik Jacků, až se mi z toho motá hlava! Tohle bylo zábavné fotit a sestavovat, i když to neni nejlépe photoshopované, ale já toho mám momentálně tak moc na práci, že mi to musíte odpustit. Proto ty dlouhé nepřítomnosti na blogu. Ale pomalu (velmi pomalu!) začínám vše plánovat a organizovat jako pořádný maniak - tak, jak to má být. Nicméně tento snímek je složený z mnoha fotek - mezi každou z nich jsem řekla Jackovi, aby šel o krok do zadu a do strany. Bohužel jsem sebou neměla stativ, tak jsem to musela pak opravovat / sestavovat / roztahovat ve Photoshopu... Uhadnete, ktéré z těch nohou nejsou pravé? =P

FEELING 22

So, I'm no massive fan of Taylor Swift, but the fact is that I turned 22 this week and I can't thing of a song more appropriate. Here are a few shots of my birthday outfit right before a lovely dinner + drinks with Jack =) (P.S. Please excuse the half-shut eyes in these shots!)

Nejsem zrovna největší fanoušek Taylor Swift, ale faktem je, že mi tento týden bylo 22, a nenapadá mě vhodnější písnička. Tady je pár fotek mého narozeninového ohozu, těsně před večeří s Jackem =) (P.S. Omluvte, prosím, ty napůl zavřené oči na těchto fotkách!)
