So I’ve been a busy little bee the past week and spent four full days – read 15-17h a day – with just snapping and editing photos. Even though loving doing so it can get really stressful till you’re actually done with that final photo. Especially since people seem to believe all we do is fill up our memory cards to empty the photos on to a computer and then upload them. Trust me, there is a lot more to photography than just snapping and getting them online.
In between uploading I have also played around with my casting moulds and let’s just put it like this. Not everything is going according to plan.
Like this morning I was going to just add on a tiny piece of bronze tint into one batch. But guess what? The lid of the bronze tint came off and placed ALL of the tint into my batch. Instead of just pouring it out I left the whole batch in a bigger mould and we’ll see what may come out of it.
Also I’m in the middle of cleaning out some horse shoes. As a horse person you’d think I would not be surprised in how dirty those things really are. But seems I blocked out that particular part of horse business. Either way to get the rust out the easiest way seem to be good old fashioned cleaning vinegar.
The photo of me being a fashion fool at work – why wouldn’t I be -and losing big time in a very much unofficial horse shoe throwing event at Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials the other year is taken by the ever so fun and talented @ph1lcole
You really should check her out on Instagram for some amazing shots of nature and animals. And for me I have a busy little bee weekend coming up playing with cameras and horses. LOVE IT!
