Here are the digital results of yesterday's impromptu shoot. Ella is uploading hers soon and I am really excited (apprehensive) because it's my first time being shot by another photographer.

I was wearing inappropriate footwear for this outing. Must clean my poor saddle shoes...

Taking advantage of a redbull induced energy high, I set off on Friday for a mini photographer meetup with Ella Ruth Cowperthwaite. She had told me of a little wooded area close by she'd been to, so we proceeded to climb UP for a good 15 minutes. I will not get used to Sheffield hills. It was worth it though, it's a beautiful place and perfect for shoots, no people walking around. Hopefully, we'll go back there for proper photoshoots. I took film and digital for the first time. I also accidentally opened the back of my Pentax before winding the film and did something unexplainable that resulted in something that looks like a double exposure. I was crashing from my redbull high. It's my only excuse for being such a noob. The light leak turned out beautifully though. Film and digital will be two different posts for the sake of neatness. I must say, film makes this location look wondrously creepy.

berries, daisies and roses

Some self-portraits I managed to shoot whilst running away from other park goers. It's cloudy and rainy, leave the park alone! For me...
