Fifty Shades of Jay - Designing my new wardrobe

I’ve been on this weight loss journey for a couple of years now, and it’s been overwhelmingly positive. I have more confidence than ever before, and even though my body isn’t quite where I want it to be, I know that, as long as I keep doing what I’m doing, it’s only a matter of time. There is one con to all of this, however… none of my old clothes fit me anymore!

I’m a big fan of making the most out of a situation, so decided to take the opportunity to but myself a capsule wardrobe for the winter months and redesign my style in the process.

Why I’m Choosing to Wear my Apple Watch Less

Back in September, I did a review of my Apple Watch Series 2. I mentioned in that post that I always felt compelled to wear it, at the expense of aesthetics, due to functionality and the fitness data it collects, which has been amazing for my continued health and weight loss mission. Well recently, with me questioning how invested I am in the Apple ecosystem, I’ve begun to wear my Apple Watch a lot less.

As I said in my review, the Apple Watch is an amazing piece of tech, and I do love it. It’s also really helped to change my life and get me to a point where I’m relatively happy with my body image and my general state of health, so I’m still glad I own it.

Childhood Nostalgia

Maybe it’s a mid life crisis, I’m on a bit of a nostalgia trip right now. It’s fun looking back at some of the things you did or enjoyed during your childhood. As a kid you do what you like, rather than what others think is cool. It’s something that’s missing in this modern social media world. So I’ve been looking back at who I used to be, and getting back in touch with my inner child.

What’s amazed me is how many aspects of my life growing up are still relevant to the things I’m interested now. This post is quite long, so I recommend getting a cup of your favourite childhood beverage, sitting back and coming on a journey with me through some of the things that have defined me as a person, and what I plan to embrace more of in the future!

How to Photograph Fashion Week

I’ve been going to fashion week for years, and I always see people making the same photographic mistakes season after season.

Last year I made a couple of videos containing tips on how to improve your fashion week photography.

The first is all about runway shows and how to get the best shots from the side of the catwalk rather than the photographers pit at the end. I’ve included various images that show you don’t necessarily need to be sitting front row to get interesting photos.

Are old digital cameras still viable in 2018? - Olympus PEN E-PL1

Moving on from the incredibly large Canon EOS 1D Mark III in my series of old cameras and their viability in 2018, brings us to the Olympus PEN E-PL1. Launched in 2010, it’s safe to say that this camera changed my life!

Back then I was using both a Hasselblad H3DII and the aforementioned Canon EOS 1D Mark III for all my work photography, but I wanted something for ordinary every day photos. Hipstamatic was huge at the time for iPhone, but I just wasn’t into using my phone for photography.

Are old digital cameras still viable in 2018? - Canon EOS 1D Mark III

Shortly after becoming a professional photographer, I decided I needed to ‘look more professional’ (I’m far less concerned with what that might mean these days). Anyway, in 2007, the Canon EOS 1D Mark III was released. I used this camera pretty much exclusively until I got a Hasselblad H3DII. These then both became ‘work cameras’ and I would switch between them depending on the job.

Similar to my previous blog about my old Fuji Finepix 2800 Zoom, I thought it would be interesting to see how viable this 11 year old camera is in 2018 for every day Instagram and social media.
