As you know I'm progressing more and more into making films as well as capturing pictures of the every day beautiful things that I connect with, especially on lens.  And although I'm still not brilliant (who ever becomes an expert overnight?) I am learning heaps and the community is just as amazing and strong as the photography blogging world.

But I can see significant differences between the early films I've created and who knows, this time next year I may have nailed it and will be making seamless films that flow naturally.  

This is the film following on from the amazing weekend I had in London at

below to fill in the gaps, though I'm not sure what space my head was in when I wrote that particular piece.

It's the kind of filming I need more practice with.  On foot with a group of virtual strangers, trying to discreetly capture little moments without looking like I was standing on the edge of all the fun too much.  This shoved me completely out of my comfort zone and it was the best fun ever.

Feel the fear and do it anyway (fist pump the air) yeah!  I didn't, but I would of high-fived everyone by the time we'd reached The Royal Institute.

Anyway, this is my little film pieced together pretty much as we created it.  A little wonky in places and not seamless at all, but I love it for it's vibrance and all the totally amazing women I met that morning.
