Its great to share your talent, experience and knowledge as there is people out there who need you. 🙂 You have a purpose, so use it to inspire others.

Did you know that your biggest decisions will be your biggest risks.

live

Live your dreams. Create art. Inspire others. 

be true

I think happiness begins with having a positive outlook on life. Being true to who we are, having a beautiful mind and the wisdom to share it.

Don’t hide creativity

Being creative and having a creative mind brings freedom. It has light and movement. It reflects our emotions. It is the magic we find in preparing to be creative by the notes we scribble down. It is imperfect. But those imperfections make it wonderful.

I am happiest when l am in the flow of my creative mind. Whether l have my camera or designing bridal jewellery. I believe in creative freedom.

Embrace it.

2015 ~ A COLOURFUL GREAT YEAR!

 

2015

2015 Has been a wonderful year for me. From capturing a wedding on Valentine’s Day to planning an animal themed model project. I have enjoyed putting these images together, because l have realised l do have the best job ever! I get to hang out with such amazing people. It makes me so happy being able to call clients friends. 🙂 I get the honour of documenting these amazing moments, that will be treasured for a long time.

So yeah 2015 has been a great year for me. Bring on 2016, it should be an even better year. I am excited for 2016 and to meet all the new amazing clients.

THE MODEL PROJECT

DSC_00111Because l have had a lot of interest in model shoots the past few days, l have decided to put together a project. I am thinking a garden based shoot involving lots of floral and nature. And l am looking at shooting the natural beauty. This project will take place in Penmaenmawr, so if anyone needs directions please don’t hesitate to ask.

Outfit wise l am looking at plain dresses with no distraction. Makeup is to be kept very natural as little a possible.

I am looking at shooting this project over July, so if any models are interested then please do contact me via my Facebook page, Abigail Chanelle Photography

I am looking at taking on as many models as l can, whoever is interested in the project. I look forward to hearing from you all. 🙂

INPERFECTION

I remember when l first started out in photography, how bad l was trying to create my first website. I look back now and think why. But we all start somewhere right! I could feel myself getting better at photography everyday.

I do talk to myself often telling myself “l am not ready to post this shoot yet or put this site up” In life things do not have to be perfect, they just always need improving. I would encourage you to be in flow with yourself.

From time to time l do often ask myself, ”What would I do if I didn’t have to do it perfectly” I think the first thing that comes into my mind is my future, where will l go from here, when will l marry, will l ever have children. I defiantly find myself saying when l have x amount of money in the bank, l will find a way of shaping my future.

I am going to take my own advice and know that in life all the things you learn, you learn as you go.

Remember your desires and interests. Take action on them.

FITNESS POST

Last week l made a deal that if my friend would get me fit, l would apply for the TA. So we shuck hands and made a deal. Oh my goodness l can’t go back now.

Day two of my training and l am starting to feel it but l feel pretty amazing. In the past l would just workout for fun but l use to always slack and l never got anywhere, because sometimes l would say l will workout next week and l never did it. But a lot of the time our busy work life will always get in the way and we don’t have time for it. But that’s where you need to say to yourself l just got to do it, if l want to be fit and healthy l need to make sacrifices.

So day two of my training l did muscle exercises like the squats and lunges which let me tell you are a killer, but defiantly worth it and l am feeling my legs today. Yesterday l did a lot of running, and when working out l would recommend that running is one of the best to loose calories.

Nutrition: I now have a food plan that l have to stick to Monday to Friday, most of it includes protein, carbs and veg. I feel its defiantly helping me because it means l am cooking my own meals and not being lazy. I have also reduced my alcohol intake and leaving an occasional glass of wine for special occasions.

I want to thank everyone who has wished me luck, it seriously means a lot. 🙂

Life is full of ups and downs, l really would like us all to encourage and to love ourselves wherever we are on this journey and to tell ourselves we are doing great. Encourage each other to live our fullest potential and build each other up. Its all about positivity. x

ANIMALS

DSC_0020

For the past few weeks l have been working hard with a few models on this animal themed project. I love working with models who understand my creative and unique style.

DSC_0145

I decided on the animal theme because its something l have never done before and being a photographer and artist l love to always try exciting new projects, l like to get stuck in and get creative.

When it comes to my work, l do like to stick to what l do best and what l am able to do. I am mainly talking about the lighting here. I tend to stick with the use of lighting that I feel comfortable with as that’s where it lands me with great results, as that’s where l can focus and capture and get the shots. I have it planned out in my head how l like things to be, in terms of where l would like my models to be, how to stand and pose, maybe how l interact and the lighting too. From there l just let things happen naturally, and capture what l need to capture.

Before the shoot l like to talk with my models as much as possible before hand to make sure we have props, clothes and how things are going to plan out. I am a very organised person haha.

Colour plays a huge part in my creative process, l like rich colourful images but keeping it as natural as possible, because natural to me it the natural beauty l like to capture. Personally for me my images are created rather than being captured. DSC_0131

WHAT AM I WORKING ON!

My work is building to a whole new level and l love how much l have grown and learned so much as a photographer and an artist.

At the moment l am working on something amazing with a bunch of amazing models. And the first shoot went amazingly well. DSC_00122

Model – Khethiwe Nomazulu

My work has been described as very unique and quirky and has a natural feel to it. And colour plays a huge part in my creative process. My work is not only captured but created.
