Mel Pettit Photography

People photography…and more!

So, what’s this all about then?

I’m not really sure what this is all about.   Like a lot of people I got my first camera when I was a kid and I can even remember what I did with it.  I took it on  a school trip to Colchester Zoo and took pictures of the animals there.  I still have copies of those pictures, faded, fuzzy and badly exposed.  I caught the bug, but at such  a young age I couldn’t work out why they didn’t look right.   Years passed and my standard didn’t improve.

 Sometime in 1999 I got my first camera, a 1.4 megapixel Fuji.   It was exactly what I had been waiting for as the whole image creation process was now in my hands, from framing the image to publishing the finished shot.  It’s been a long learning process and there is still so much more to get my head around, especially Photoshop related stuff, but I love it.

People photography is my favourite, bar none.   Portraits, candid shots, reportage, wedding, street photography, working with models, anything people related I love.  I’m going to use this blog to show you what I’ve done.   Over the the next few weeks I’ll be posting stuff that I’ve done so far, both old and recent.   I hope you enjoy what you see and read.

      Thanks for two things Tony. Firstly for the kind words and secondly for breaking my duck in that you’re the very first person to make a comment on here. I’m hoping to blog some retrospective stuff first, them move on to my latest work. I need more time…..!

        I am happy to break your duck for comments, it’s not often I get ‘first post’. Good luck with your photography.
