Photo a Day #23

37 Years
1/400     F8.0     ISO 800

I took this over the Christmas period and by the looks of it my dad is onto me. I really like the framing of the window here. I used a green filter in editing to give a retro feel to the photo which I felt suited the subject matter.

Photo a Day #22

1/60     F14     ISO 100

The best out of a lot of photos attempted on these lights in a restaurant. Not quite as crisp as I would have liked.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation (Shade 2 Fair) Review

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation Shade 2
Having owned the Charlotte Tilbury magic Foundation for over a year, I feel qualified to write this review. For new readers, let me first say that I have fairly dry and occasionally sensitive skin. My skin is usually clear, but I am dotted with moles and have some redness around my nose (you win some, you lose some!) 

This cream foundation promises full coverage. It also has the word 'magic' in the name, so you do tend to go in thinking that you will be airbrushed like some Hollywood movie star. I'll give you the long and short of it: this isn't magic...

A Photo a day #20

Face in the Wall
1/100     F5.0     ISO 200

I found this face moulded into a wall down Chichester High Street. If any knows of its history, I'd be interested to know.

A Photo a Day #18

Blue and Yellow
1/100     F4.5     ISO 200

If you've seen yesterday's Photo of the Day, you may recognise these lovely flowers. I believe these are Primulas. The flowers are fairly true to colour here, although in the lighting they did appear a bit more towards purple-blue. I tend to take stick with my portrait lens when shooting on the go, but the macro might have done an even better job.

A Photo a Day #17

Flowers and Bicycles
1/100     F6.3     ISO 200

Taken the at the weekend just passed on a trip to Chichester, seeing these colourful flowers really cheered me up despite the cold weather. I like the layers of focus that were achieved here, with the bicycles just out of focus and then the shoppers in the background.

A Photo a Day #15

Rainbow Street
1/125      F4.5     ISO 160

A row of colourfully painted houses in Chichester. The sky was an addition with my novice photoshop skills as the white sky left some blank space that looked a bit plain.
