Well last week was such a busy one! It started with a workshop on lighting by Kate Hopewell-Smith (www.katehopewellsmith.com) check out her work, she's a brilliant photographer and equally brilliant teacher), then it was bonfire night which meant some rather sedate sparklers for us. Then on Friday I was lucky enough to have won a competition along with five other photographers to get the chance to shoot the cover shot for Advanced Photographer Magazine. What a great experience! We had two brilliant models, amazing lighting equipment and a stunning location in Wrest Park. I had so much fun and can't wait to see the pictures we took. In between all that I set up my new website (which confusingly also has a blog attached), it's www.barbarajacksonphotography.co.uk, so please have a look as any feedback will be gratefully accepted.

very expensive lighting toys) we used on Friday.
