creating a mood


I’ve been having fun with my camera, taking photos of my new pyrography necklaces for my etsy shop. The forest has been great for finding different textures and backgrounds. I completely lost track of time and it became like when I am drawing, completely focused on just one thing, all the stress of life melted away.


Trying to think up ways of putting across my feelings for these necklaces through the photos is hard but I think I’m getting there! I’m hoping to come up with a sort of formula to make the following necklaces quicker to put into the shop.


I’m not sure I can count the photography part as work because I enjoy it so much, and there’s the added bonus that Floss gets a walk at the same time.

I have noticed the leaves changing colour already and Autumn is definitely in the air. The smell of Autumn in the forest is so evocative for me. When I was four, my first night away from home was with school to a place called Fox Howl in the forest. I can still remember the ranger taking us on a walk to show us all the different types of fungi. It was all such a big adventure.

Gorgeous photos. I am trying to get the right mood for photographing my jewellery too- it's very hard isn't it? Think you've got it tho'. Ax


Just been for a woodland walk, seeing fantastic light and clouds; even a short downpour so hid under trees. It was like gloomy cold autumn when we left, and late warm summer coming back an hour later, feeling over-dressed and over heated. My son remarked on the faint evocative woodsmoke smell of autumn. I must have taken 50 photos. Your photos hit just the right note, hope you get lots of buyers :-))

Nature is wonderful like that. It's a timeless, ageless place we can loose our mind self. Your necklaces have a bit of the forest spirit in them.
