Lockdown photography - 'forget me not'

May 17, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

With weddings currently on hold and being up to date with editing, I have been spending my time doing further training in editing techniques (there is always something new to learn), but also having a 'play around' with items around the house/garden and editing techniques.  The first of these was along an 'isolation' theme.  With Skype meetings running for our photography club we had set this theme for members to take an image that reflected what 'lock-down' meant to them.  Having recently become part of a volunteer group within our village to help out those who couldn't leave their homes, my take on the subject was 'forget me not'.  The jar representing containment, and the flower people's hopes that they wouldn't be overlooked during the lock-down or forgotten by people afterwards.  Deep, don't you think?  Well, sorry to disappoint but that is about as creative as I get with stuff like this; although I am looking to do more and will post some of my other non-wedding/portrait work along the way.   

Edit 21/05/2020: Yay!  This image has just been awarded a 'Silver Bar' from the Guild of Photographers.
