February on Instagram

I haven’t shared my monthly Instagram pictures for quite a while, so I thought I’d get back into it this month. February has been busy, but fun. It’s really starting to feel like spring now, we’ve had lots of sunny days here recently, it’s so nice!

1. I held my second Photo Brunch in Covent Garden. Again, it was great and I really enjoyed sharing advice, helping everyone out with their photography, and getting to know them over coffee/tea. The next Photo Brunch is open for booking now as well - it will be on 29 March.

2. + 5. I obviously really like those flowers. And they go well with my new notebook - spring always puts me in the mood for red, pink, white, and lots of pastels…

3. Elephant & Castle in the late afternoon before the sun went down. I love this view, especially on a sunny day.

4. Documenting the circus has been lots of fun - great colours and light. It’s so exciting to see what’s going on behind the scenes, it almost feels surreal. It’s like being in a different world when you’re there as ‘part’ of the circus. I couldn’t live and work in the circus though - going back into ‘real’ life feels good after spending lots of time there. I’ll share more about this project soon.

6. I got to be part of a food photography shoot for the Sunday Times Magazine, which has been a great experience. Read more about it here.

So, this has been February. Now that I'm consciously looking back at the month again, I feel like 'man, time goes by way too fast'. I always felt like this when I last did my monthly Instagram series.

What have you been up to this month?

    1. Ha, March definitely sounds nicer ;) It's a bit weird feeling like spring in February as well - it's like there just are no normal seasons anymore.

  4. Helena, During the short time I've followed your photography blog I'm very impressed and inspired to move forward with my photography. So far I've been using my Samsung Galaxy cell phone to take photos since I can share the photos so easily. About two years ago I did receive a Fujifilm digital camera as a gift. I think I've used it once maybe twice. I know I need to get on the stick and step up my program. I live in New York and as soon as we thaw out I'm going to take some photography classes. I realize there's a lot I need to learn. When you have time please check out my Instagram account Palmtreesplanet. Please let me know what you think of my nascient skills. I would love to receive your professional feedback. Thank you.
