Another month has gone by and it is time to present some of my newest photos.
I shall start with Samuel and Fiona’s wedding. This wedding was even more special to shoot, as I knew both bride and groom individually since their adolescence. Little did I imagine at that time, that Fiona and Samuel would one day meet one another and eventually get married.
It was the first time that I had a wedding where the newlyweds together with their guests walked a couple of meters to arrive at their reception. This provided me with the opportunity to take some candid street shots.
This month, Jonathan, another friend of mine, tied the knot. Jonathan and Elaine asked me to take their pre-wedding as well as their wedding photos. The above photos of Elaine and Jonathan I took at Ġebel Cantar during sunset.
The photoshoot initially started inside Buskett. I noticed the sun rather low in the sky, shining through the trees and I knew that this was a great opportunity to take some good photos.
I enjoyed working with my friends, Jonathan and Elaine. I always recommend couples to do a pre-wedding shoot. This helps me to acquaint myself with them before the wedding ceremony. On the other hand they would feel more at ease with me as their photographer.
In last month’s journal I wrote that I look forward to October as I want some rain. Rain is also a wake-up call for nature. The tip-tapping of the rain gets the snails to get out of their shell to check out the new vegetation. Whilst they are enjoying their edible greenery I enjoy stalking them and getting some close-ups as they drag their mobile home with them.
This is not a beautiful sight to see and yet it is important to document. These two photos were taken in two different locations in a matter of a week. One photo I took in Senglea and the other photo I took in Marsaxlokk. I was shocked by the great amount of dirt.
This is Franky. Rain or shine he is always busy working. He did the plastering and alterations in our house. I took this photo exactly at the end of a day’s job. Franky is a nice hardworking person. He is always eager to help and please his clients. From a photographic point of view, he also has beautiful facial features, which are nice to capture.
I always love to end my journal with a couple of photos of my little ones. In the above photos, Alice and Gabriel are wearing their Zebbug Rangers football gear. During this event, they had a penalty shootout competition.
This month, I mostly used the following two lenses; Canon L 24-70mm f.2.8, as it is very practical to use when required to zoom in and out without having to change lenses. For portraits, I also used Canon L 70-20mm f2.8.
