Tiny plants and a friendly dog

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of shooting with a great little independent plant shop in Nottingham - The Watered Garden. They're based in Sneinton Market, a hub of cool, creative businesses.

Here are some of the shots I took on the day. If you can't guess, the last one is my favourite. I imagine it will be yours, too.

That last one is of Ezra, a top class shop dog. He licked my face, but I didn't even mind. 

If you're in Nottingham and you're after some plants (or want to spend some time with a friendly and very photogenic dog), get down to Sneinton Market and pay The Watered Garden a visit.

Red Hair & Neon Signs | Blogger Photoshoot

Last Sunday, I spent the morning photographing Amani Carson, a local blogger with very cool red hair.

It was a pretty new experience for both of us, but after a coffee and a few test shots, we got into the swing of things. Amani mentioned that she was after some edgy photos, so we walked to Hockley, an area of Nottingham that is packed with independent shops - and neon signs. 

Everywhere we went, we seemed to find stuff that matched or contrasted well with Amani's hair. Shop fronts, signs, street art, the lot.

Take a look at some of the best shots below:

For the photography nerds out there, I used my Nikon D600 and a couple of prime lenses - the 85mm 1.8G and 50mm 1.8D. Both served me well on the day, particularly the 85mm. It's a great focal length for these kinds of shots, and probably one of the best photography purchases I've made.

The shoot was really fun, and it was great to shoot in places I haven't tried before. Nottingham is pretty photogenic, after all.

And just like London buses, another blogger shoot came along the very next day. Check out my blogger photoshoot with Juliet, who blogs at Not Capulet.
