My Lockdown Photography Project

life

During lockdown I have got back into taking photos around my garden. Photography really helps me with managing my mental health. I wanted to share with you some of my favourite shots so far!

This photo is a leaf I found near our apple tree.
For this photo I put a leaf on our apple trees bark as I wanted to experiment with the colours and textures the image would make.
This is a leaf I put on some of a apple trees bark. In this photo I wanted to experiment with light and how it hits the ground and surfaces in different ways.
This is a photo of a flower in our garden with a bumble bee.
In this shot I managed to get two bees as I was trying out different angles.
This is a pink poppy in my garden. I took this photo from underneath as I wanted to capture how the raindrops sat on the flowers petals.
This is a quince from our quince tree. I wanted to experiment with the different green tones and textures.
I love this photo because of the contrast between the purple flowers and the red leaves blurred in the background.
Just some white bluebells growing in the garden.
My dog Mango in our garden.

Hope you enjoyed seeing some of my favourite shots as much as I did taking them!

The Lockdown Tag

life

Hannah from Luxury Blush created her very own lockdown tag. When I found out about this I was so excited. I knew I needed to take part! This tag has 11 questions and is just a bit of fun and sure to put a smile on your face.

Quote: Emily Coxhead

1. Come On, Own Up…. Did You Stock Pile Anything?

I didn’t stock pile anything so it was a bit of a shock to see loads of empty shelves around. We found it very hard to find flour but now we’ve finally got some!

2. Have You Discovered A New Hobby?

One thing that I have done in lockdown is finally getting tropical fish. I now have two tanks. I have enjoyed creating the interior of the tank, finding out fish facts and of course getting them. Having fish is much more of a hobby than I originally thought from learning about plants, community fish, temperature to name a few.I now do really feel like part of the fish tank community. I don’t know if you could say this was a hobby. But during lockdown I am enjoying making and painting my own rabbit hutch.

3. Where Is The First Place You Will Go Once Restrictions Are 100% Lifted?

I can’t wait to see my friends and finally getting back into the saddle for my Saturday morning ride. I can’t wait to see the amazing horses and ponies, instructors and volunteers because boy have I missed it!

4. Lounge Wear Or Normal Clothes For A Of Isolation?

I would say most of the time I wear my normal clothes as this helps me with having a routine I feel comfortable with. Also I feel that it helps me set up my mind for the day ahead.

5. Have You Been Wearing Makeup Whilst Staying At Home?

Before lockdown I wasn’t wearing makeup everyday. However during lockdown I have enjoyed reading skin care books and trying out new looks. I have found that lockdown has given me the time to let my skin breathe helping me with my complexion.

6. How Many Zoom Quizzes Have You Done? And Importantly, Did You Enjoy Them?

I’ve done a couple of quizzes and I really enjoyed them it was really nice to be able to chat with friends and have a laugh. I’m awful at quizzes.

7. Did You Give Into The Hype And Bake Your Own Banana Bread?

This is something I haven’t done but my mum has been very busy making delicious birthday cakes and treats.

8. Were You Still Ordering Takeaways? If You Did, What Was Your First One?

I don’t really eat many takeaways even before lockdown. However I recently enjoyed stealing a little bit of my sisters Chinese takeaway meal .

9. Has Your Blog / Instagram Content Had To Change Since Lockdown?

I wouldn’t say my content has changed loads on my channels. However being in lockdown has given me lots of opportunities to write guest blog posts for other organisations. Lockdown has also shown me that when everything is 100% ok again that I would love to do more modelling shoots and post these photos on my social media platforms. I want to also work with other creatives from modelling to acting to things I don’t even know about yet!

10. Are You Waiting Until The Hairdressers Re-Open Or Have You Cut / Dyed Your Own Hair?

Right now my hair is a the length I would like however when the hairdressers re-opens I will go and probably have a small trim. Personally I can’t wait till the beauty parlour opens up again so that I can get my eyebrows threaded and waxed!

11. Who Have You Missed Seeing The Most?

This questions hard I’ve missed so many people so this answer maybe quite long. I have missed seeing and meeting up with my close friends. I have missed not going to The Theatre Shed and seeing my Shed family in person. I have missed seeing everyone and the horses and ponies at South Bucks RDA. I have missed working on the farm with friends. And finally I have missed not being able to perform on stage with college friends.

Thank you to all you amazing key workers out there and Thank You for reading. Stay Safeđź’ś
