Childhood Exhibition - The Photographs
As my exhibition comes to a close in the next week or so, I thought this was a good time to share the images in the exhibition as a collection. I previously wrote about the process of putting on my exhibition - selecting images, printing and installing, so this is more about showing you the photographs if you haven't been able to come and view the exhibition in person.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to share a bit of my love of my Fujifilm X100S camera. All of the images in this collection were taken with the X100S, with it's fixed 23mm lens (35mm equivalent). It's not just that I love the images that I can take with this camera, but it is small enough to go everywhere with me. Whenever I'm out somewhere with my kids, my X100S is around my neck or close at hand. It feels so natural to use, the dials feel right to me so it's super quick and easy for me to change settings. I absolutely love that I can turn it completely silent, it's so much more inconspicuous. Sure, it searches for focus every now and again and I have to remember back-up batteries for it's ridiculously short battery life, but documenting my kids' childhood would not be the same without it. I really should get the upgraded X100T model!
I'm really looking forward to running a workshop on this style of photography next week with the Photographers Collective North Staffordshire, which is fully booked. In the meantime, if you want to see the exhibition while it's still on display, get yourself to Burslem School of Art and have a gander.
I'd love to take more documentary style sessions with families, so if you're interested in getting documentary photographs of your family on a walk, relaxing at home, or whatever you get up to, please get in touch.
