My Photography Adventure- Starts here!

Hey every cutie, I thought I would share with you about my adventure starting in the world and hobby of Photography .

Photography is some thing I have admired and with growing up as a young teen in the work place of hair and fashion,It was some thing that came part and parcel with the job, If there was a contest or a event some one some where had a camera taking photos of the models, even I was the model at these events or an assistant back stage helping the models. It was a thrill! I loved it so much. For those that all know me well, I had to give it all up thanks to the products I was working with every day.  *sighs*

Any how ,some how I had some connection with Photography even been the model a good few times for friends and other photographers. But now its my turn to be the one to create the photos! Yeah!

So after many a long a talk with the hubby who helped me get a loan for my Camera and equipment to start up. I have one workshop under my belt and a good few more to attend this year. (One this month ! )

Ideally I would love to attend a evening class. But until then am doing a self study course. Am also learning lots thanks to the internet and some trial and error. *huhuh*

As well as that I have been changing the spare room aka the kawaii room into a pop up home studio!
I have been doing some DIY , painting some items in white and making sure all my walls are as plain as can be. The more white the better for lighting !

Its so far been lots of fun redoing it up . I got some new white shelf's up that are white too. They should still look cute but I wanted them in white to blend in with the room and and stay hidden behind my back drop too. I am way to excited to place all my Kawaii trinkets and such up on display! Not only that because this is a spare room it also houses chibi's own dressing up box and dressing up table. Which I have a feeling once I do get my Studio set up she will be wanting her own photo shoots done. (Hehehe.)

I also decided to also re paint a old ikea small table I have had for many years. I sanded it down removed some stickers and wall paint from it and given it 3 licks of paint in white, I thought this would make a good table/raised platform to use against a back drop. Its not perfect but it will do for the mean time. Also it looks super cute in white and with everything turning white the room is looking larger too!

So am thinking on delaying on buying a zoom lens just know as I have my main kit. And start working on getting the pieces to put together for the home studio.

Such as lights, Reflectors back drop maybe even some props. Am awaiting on some super kawaii cushions to use in props and to decorate my room! haha.

So with all of this going on from the end of this month my dairy is full of events to go to ,I hope to get many photos and pictures. Also I will  to get a very important shoot sorted out and  together with the Marshmallow Dreams maids - a pop up maid cafe full of cute maids at a event in Scotland near you! I will be working closely with this group over the next year or so!  I really can not wait !


so am going to leave some photos of my wish list on my blog post here, to keep me inspired to work hard to get my home studio up and running !


Later's,
Tartan <3

Just a day out with the Butterflies

Hey-y every cutie! 
Today am just sharing some of the cute images I got from Butterfly world- which is a place where they have set up a Butterfly enclosure where you can walk through and be with the butterflies, and if you head on to the back you get to meet some friendly and deadly snakes spiders, and some other creepy crawlies. What's not to love? 

Now that the days are longer me and the other half are taking chibi bean out and about places, so this was last week ends trip out. We are gona try and do more of theses trips this coming weekend we should be going to the swim baths and visiting family - cant really take any photos at the swim baths lol  but we are gona check out some other local stuff that I can take photos of. so I thought it be nice to share the photos of butterflies here on the blog. huhuh!

So when you go its its really stuffy and hot.Its like a really big green house and yups ,my lens steamed up - gah!
There was so many pretty plants and green. And the best bit was the butterflies fluttering over your head and going about their business. After a while my lens chilled out and stopped steaming up and then I could go on and take some photos hehe.

There was so many kinds of butterflies here and they said you can see caterpillars in the greenery- I never saw any but they collect them all and move them to the breeding area , where they hatch out and become flying beauty's.


 Some of the colours on the butterflies were stunning! I loved the bigger ones and the ones with the brightest colours - too cute! I also had a soft spot for the baby quails running about and the turtles that were hanging out on a small island in the water, There was also Japanese huge fish in the water . I can't mind the names but they were pretty cool and so big!

I could have just sat in there all day, watching them flutter about. Its such a wonderful place to be- magical and you could easily lose track of time.

I did venture into the other part, I have respect for most creatures big and small. I try my best to not judge the way a creature looks so I was quite happy seeing the snakes and lizards, an army of ants walking on a rope above us.

However Spiders - Urgh cant stand them, its not the fact they scare me its fact they have 8 legs, WHY do they need 8 damm legs!
I just cant! ~eee! I think its the bird eating spider and the ones that have health bars that creep me out that at being in a small dark room with them all, and wondering if that enclosure over there ...should be empty..

After spending a good while , capturing images and such. Even has some staff giving me a help look for good shots- bless em! We  then headed out to the Garden centre next door and had a lovely lunch. We had a wonder about and I got a treat of a pack of macaroons!- Yay!
We had a great fun day. So am just going to leave the rest of the images down below!
Enjoy!
