Engagement photography update

Following on from the last post of the pre wedding photography of Matthew and Caroline I just wanted to post a few more photographs taken on a day of very changeable weather. Where I had a camera in my hand all the time (obviously) the lovely couple were never far away from the umbrella!

Again I must say I was very impressed with the variety of scenes in Lady Dixon Park in Belfast. Now on with the photographs.

Pre wedding/engagement photography in Northern Ireland

A fun and relaxed couple – Matthew and Caroline on  a typical Northern Ireland summer day with heavy rain and some glorious sunshine meant lots of dashing in and out of cover. The happy couple are getting married later in the year and we met up in Lady Dixon Park outside Belfast for their pre wedding photography session last week.

Below are a few photographs from the day. All comments welcome.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just a fun photograph to show how bad the rain was on the day. I’m sure Matthew and Caroline won’t mind being reminded!

Chasing the light

It had intended to be a walk on the beach but the weather decided otherwise. Rather than just give up, go home and make a cup of tea I decided to wait it out just to see what the weather would do. On the north coast of Northern Ireland there is always the chance the weather will change quite quickly and with that the light also.

While I was watching through the rain I could see it clearing but at the same time another front moving in. In the short dry interlude I managed to get these two photographs. Beach weather no but the drama in the storm building and the short but dramatic piece of sunlight made it all worthwhile.

From Cars to Flowers

I have just spent the last couple of days  inside photographing car interiors while the sun was shining outside. Don’t get me wrong it was really quite good fun with the smell of leather and the shine of chrome but when the sun is shining there is only one place to be and that is outside. Anywhere as long as it is outdoors.

As usual on a Saturday morning I was up early with my coffee wandering round the garden and noticed that the last couple of days of sunshine had ripened the lilies. Probably ripened isn’t the correct botanical term here but you get my drift. So coffee down and out with the camera for some gentle relaxing photographs.

Although I love landscape photography I am not a flora kinda photographer  but this is the result. Here is one captured and processed this morning.

And just round the corner I noticed that lovely early morning light on some poppies and well here’s the result. In fact this might be worth getting a print made. Quite often with the digital age photographs only exist on a monitor which is a real shame.

A nice little commission

A few weeks ago I took a couple of photographs of wine bottles as part of an on going series. When published on my blog ( an old one) the owner of the Domaine where the wine was produced asked me to photograph his 2011 range as he had new labels and brand to roll out. This was for the retail store on the website. What a nice job – Thank you Charles.

The interesting thing is the Domaine is in the glorious South of France and I am in the slightly damper and overcast Northern Ireland. What you can do with a courier company and broadband.

The first photograph below is what started the whole thing off and below is a couple of photographs of the new product photographs as commissioned.

And the website – it’s www.sainterose.com

A new era

Welcome to my new blog. Yes – new as I have taken the big step of incorporating my blog into this all new website. My previous blog at www.Francispeacockephotographyblog.wordpress.com is still available and will be for a while yet but all new posts will be here.

This whole website is new so there is only a small selection of photographs in each of the galleries. Naturally I will be adding to these regularly so do please come back soon and hopefully often.

Thanks for looking

Francis

While looking through images deciding what to include in this new website I came across this one from some time ago and thought it was worth an airing.

Any comments welcome.
