I got a phone call from the Sunday Times late on friday night, to go and take some pics of a lady for one of their news features. We needed to get her working in her garden, unfortunately a combination of it being winter and the wet weather made this a tricky prospect.
It won't go down as one of my great shots, however I think we did a decent job given the circumstances. I decided to shoot a bit off brief with the plant filing the left third of the frame to make it look a little less like a winter garden, as the original plan left the garden looking very barren as garden's tend to look in winter.
I had to keep cleaning my lens as it was raining so much, the subject Carol deserves credit for doing everything asked over her, despite being cold and getting wet, luckily her husband was on hand with a brolly which made it feel like a celeb photo-shoot, shame my feet got soaked after sinking in the waterlogged grass!

I've been a photographer for quite a long time now. So hopefully I have something to say about it.
