I’m going to skip the “Oh my god its November already” you get it as much as I do, times going fast! But with life fishing by so quickly, this month I’ve decided is the month for education. As many of you know back in July I started up as a photographer, which as been brilliant,business is going really well. But as I’ve been so focused on learning the ropes, I feel my work has kind of just become a little bit stagnant. I’ve been so focused on getting those jobs in, selling what I’m used to dong, there’s been no real time for growth. So, thats why I decided to keep November pretty free, just to go back to learning – This absolutely does tie in with this months HLP, just bare with me.
So when it came to this months HLP (See!) I wanted to tackle my first objective – Editing. I’ve fallen into a bit of a rut with Lightroom, but after a bit of Pinterest scrolling I found out that actually it can do WAY more than what I’ve been using it for. I’ve discovered things like the HSL tab! The before and after option – Seriously! And so with this months edition, I really wanted to put these things to use. You may not notice much difference to my usual stuff, but I can see so many changes already, my educational month is getting off to a good start!
So, more about this months photographs. With it being Bonfire night yesterday, Documenting our Sunday was an obvious choice. It started off pretty slow, all half term I’ve been pinging out of bed by 7.30, but typically on the last day, I woke up groggy at 10am questioning if something had happened to time, there was seriously no way I slept in that late! Apart from I did, and so did the rest of the house. I think the past week just caught up on us all.
Anyway, once we all finally dragged ourselves down stairs, it was sausage butties and a morning of lazing for everyone – but me who had to spend it working on website stuff. Once finished I got started on the first Sunday roast we’ve had in over a month!
Before dinner we decided to head out on a nice little Sunday afternoon stroll, Izzy had been a bit poorly over the weekend and Sam and I were feeling a little sore and stiff from Saturday mornings Gym session. So we took off into the local woodlands to stretch our legs.
Once dinner was done, we headed out into the garden for some sparklers and fireworks, I don’t tend to make a massive deal out of bonfire night – I’m all about Halloween – But even still, just a few for the girls, before we huddled back into the warm sanctuary of the house for Banana & Butterscotch pudding. Yum.
A really lovely Sunday.
