Splashes of colour: Blogtacular Photowalk on the Southbank

Last Saturday (how has it already been a week??), I attended Blogtacular and managed to get a place on the photowalk. For those of you that don’t know Blogtacular, it’s a pretty inspiring conference with various workshops and talks on things like social media and styling. It was my first time attending, and it was a ton of fun.

The photowalk, led by Xanthe Burkley and Sammee Lapham, took place before the conference; so while most sensible people would have still been having a Saturday lie-in, we were out and about snapping photos on the Southbank. Although the photowalk was in a place that is very familiar to me (we live c.10 minutes away), it was a real treat to have the place to ourselves and take pictures without the rest of the world photobombing! I’m not sure I’ve ever seen the riverside quite that quiet, to be honest…

I’m trying to get better with colour – i.e. be less scared of it, use it more, embrace it – and to try out different ways of building it into my photographs. It wasn’t too hard on the Saturday, thanks to the ever-stylish bloggers and plenty of balloons! Was great getting to meet so many creative brains and fun personalities.
