Last night was a late one again damn my annual leave from work ,I more than burning the candle at both ends im heading for a blackout as there will be no candle left. Magic Mantra Picked me up and we proceeded to pick up a lovely red motability Scooter from her Mum and Dads house, this would play a crucial part in the days events. We met the lads at a early 10am strapped the camera to the scooter, set out our positions, began filming which went swimmingly and hey presto 12 takes later the filming was to our amazement complete. After reviewing the final footage take 10 was the best and suited the guys perfectly. The video was all done in one take, the lads rapped their lyrics the only editing to video involved a few effects and the title and end credits sequence, there was slight disturbance to the motion but added to the videos raw quality. The final approved version is available to view, I have created some alternate versions I would like people to vote on to see what they think.

I awoke today at 1:30pm a very late lie in indeed, but well needed rest after the weekends events. The friday night performance of my arabic dance routine I was told by onlookers that it was amazing, I maided during the second half and pepped up on cola it went down a storm this consisted of a veritable banquet of performers and a birthday sing song for 2 of the audience however 1 of them Monty queen of SLB was tied to a chair and dry humped throughout the intermission . As the evening drew to a close I became imbroiled within with romantic related drama that fortunatley had a positive outcome to which I am now of the belief that couples should not go out at all (chuckle). The night ended with a dirty McDonalds a drunkard trying to hit on Katy Kamikazy, a taxi home and a long discussion till 4:30am about costumes and routines of the future.

At the last minute as usual I glammed myself up for a photoshoot, normally I would slap on the war paint ala studio, however today would be different. A chance photo session with the girlys meant as the others beat their feet in a taxi to the studio, I strolled without a care as onlookers gawped at my egyptian makeup in all its golden and glittery finery. We arrived at the studio with a deadline of a one hour time slot thus time became a very precious commodity, I successfully managed to work out how to use all the fancy photography equipment and ensured all lighting was precise. once these bumblings were over a great 50mins of photographic fun was had by all involved . A further session has now been secured well in advance with a few hours of play this will provide more opportunities to experiment further with my lovely little camera.
Much fun and frivolity was had this weekend a camping adventure within a fairy woodland to celebrate Miss Magic Mantra's 29th year of existence. Aside from the partying, cake, toasted marshmallows, getting eaten alive and the twice near death experience of one party goer much experimentation was had as always with my little camera, I was able to capture alot of the excitement and get some cracking macro shots of the fire, long exposures of glow sticks/sparklers and finally to top off the event some wonderfully dark images of a burnt out car.
