So four weeks of my amazing photography course Evolve with Sheye has passed already.
There is still so much to learn but I have had so much fun trying to work it out!
I also was lucky enough to get myself a new whizz bang camera during the course and that sent me on another steep learning curve – loving it though as it is a full frame camera and has opened up a whole new world!
So here are some photo’s from my week 4 task. 
My incredibly obliging 5 year old who loves to have her photo taken helped me out.  I love that not only does Sofia enjoy being in front of the camera but she also loves to be behind it – something I am so excited to foster (I think Santa knows what to bring her this Christmas).
I still find the processing so tricky but this week begins a new course with Sheye specifically about processing.  I can’t wait to learn more.

I am working on some exciting events for November and December so I have been searching for lots of inspiration.  Here is some gorgeous cake ideas that feature beautiful flowers and ruffles – just what the bride I am working with is after.  I have been busy pinning loads of new things to my Pinterest Board – it is such a fabulous tool for collecting all those images you come across while researching for projects.

Cakes by My Sweet and Saucy except the very pretty coral coloured one 4th picture down which is by Citrus and Orange

“Sofia do you want to sneak away with mummy and eat a lollipop!”
Her eye’s lit up 
I don’t think she could believe what she was hearing
My cheeky girl who asks at least 100 times a day for a treat
To which the answer is always “no”
Was mummy teasing?
No not this time – mummy is doing a photography course and needed a willing subject!
So here we are – week 2 of my online photography course with Sheye 
So much to learn – so much to absorb – so much trickier with a person than with food!
This week we have been playing with editing in photoshop so here are my shots from week 2 with some vintage editing.
That lollipop did the trick!
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
