Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! Hope you get lots and lots of easter eggs on Sunday. I give them out on Friday so my girls get plenty of time to eat them over the weekend break. Now that they are 22 years old that doesn't matter so much but they still managed to get a carton of a dozen eggs!

Danielle had a driving lesson this morning, and while I was waiting Lauren and I went and did some test shots for a photo shoot in the industrial area nearby. Lauren donned my white top and I nicked a couple of milk crates from the back of Dans work (I returned them later!) and I found a nice spot to take some close up shots. I like to shoot a bit higher than I am so I use the crates for height. I took some on the shadow side of a white wall and then we found this lovely tree that had black bark which was really nice for a contrast. I really like black and white photography and I think this is the best my Cannon Powershot SX100 IS can do until I get some money together for a SLR. Lauren did the editing for this shot and I put up a soft border and text.
Photo below with the cross process in photoshop, looks very cool with the subtle colours.
I have many more photos to edit but I have pressing work with Collections today and the samples are coming along nicely, just wish I had more time. Hope you are all enjoying your break and getting time to relax with the family and do the things you love.
