So it's almost the end of 2015 and I managed to squeeze in one more Little People Week before it was over.
It's a lovely thing when you have an idea that gets peoples attention and gives you a lot of positive feedback. The very first Little People week all started with me thinking I should up my game when it comes to my little guys, as I hadn't been working with them as much as I would like to be. This way it made me shoot at least seven new photos, and also make an event of releasing them onto the interwebs rather than slipping them onto the Facebook page where they might go potentially unnoticed.
This time was tough as the weather this time of year isn't great. So I either had to take my chances in the great outdoors, or get inventive in the comfort of my own home by trying to make all the photos look different and each one interesting. I even had a go at modifying my first little dude this time round too. For those who know me know I'm not a confident painter and so I usually give them to my friend Rachael Berry to do, as she is far more proficient with painting than I ever could be! But this time I fancied giving it a go myself (images below) . After seeing an image on Instagram of a road that had a very shallow depth of field that highlighted the tarmac and the yellow lines, the idea of adding Dorothy and Toto sprung into my head. I actually quite enjoyed painting her and her hairy companion!
I want to thank everyone who has followed the event, given likes and comments, and even the people who have said lovely things to me in person! There's a new thing I'm dying to try out with my Little People and when I can do it right I think they will get even more love than they already do.
So look out for my Little People of 2016 - I'm far from out of ideas and they are ready for more adventures!
