On Saturday, I attended a photography workshop run by Emily Quinton and what a treat it was. I have meant to pick up my camera again for some times now but I was quite disappointed by the course I took last year at the London School of Photography and being too busy with the shop I put it off for another year.
Emily’s workshop was fantastic and was exactly what I needed to go back on the horse. It was in a lovely studio filled with natural light and she made everybody feel at ease. She talked us through her experience as a wedding Photographer and then about composition, where to find inspiration, styling and then onto the technical part and then how to edit our pictures and share them via social media. It was a very pleasant way of spending the day with some lovely people and I came out of it, excited to be friend with my camera again but most importantly with all my questions answered. I’m looking forward to attending her level 2 workshop.
Emily has also written a new book “Maker spaces” (out in April) which I’m really looking forward to seeing. You can pre-order it on Amazon but if you order it directly from Emily’s website here, you will get a beautiful, limited edition letterpress card designed and printed by one of the makers featured in the book.
Emily’s style is very floral, pastel and feminine but I still managed to find a few B&W props to come up with the styling above. I was first inspired by Heather‘s handwriting and I also borrowed her fab Two Thousand Fifteen notebook designed by Marjolein Delhaas (sadly sold out!) and her glasses. The small camera is by Miko Design (Mila would love this!) and the big camera is by Naked Lunge who designed these amazing Make-A-Doll kits for us.
