The First

By on February 20, 2014.

It is Thursday which mean it is time to bring an old image back to life. The one I have picked this week is my first ever outdoor photography shoot I did all on my own. The story that goes with this image is worth a read as it is quite funny and involves very muddy feet and my a dog and can be found here; If you go down to the woods today.

At the time I was really pleased with this series of photographs. They were taken with my tripod and my little point and shoot using a timer and even now, all these years later, I am still proud of them but I also look at them, compared to the images that I take now, I can see just how much I have learnt and developed as a self-portrait photographer since then. I am proud of that fact too and of course it all began here. This was the first and I have never stopped taking them since.

  1. This is a lovely series and appeals to me hugely because of the outdoor setting. I’m totally with you on the un-sexy getting of clothes on-and-off part, though – I have started to use the following pre-pic taking checklist: no bra, shorts, and no tops with long sleeves. Oh, and wellies! Jane xxx

  2. We are quite lucky where we are, in that a few miles outside the town we are in almost isolation.

    We walked for three miles and two hours on a glorious summers day and didn’t see another soul. When we ventured into Staffordshire the following week, we were constantly interrupted at my Angel of the North picture from a couple of months ago, was taken at a triangulation point on the hill, and there were people walking up the path: albeit a third of a mile away! Not to mention the dog walkers and everything!

    But lovely pictures, and amazing how “normal” it feels after a few minutes. We had the same feeling with naturism eighteen months ago. Ten minutes and it was completley normal!

  3. I still remember the post you mention and I feel exactly the same as I felt then: I want to go out and make some photos too. I desperately need a camera where I can use a remote, then it will be much easier.

    That said, I have to say that I am yet again admiring this photo 🙂
    You should rightfully be proud of yourself.
