Trying to stay sane. . .

We all know what the situation is like at the moment, so I’m not going to go on about it. What I am going to do is share a handful of photos that I’ve taken on my phone recently. These were all taken using available light and I would expect to see more like this…

Bugger . . .

Apologies for the slight delay on this week’s post, I had jobs that took priority over the blog. But we’re here now, albeit briefly. So yesterday I should have been attending the photography show but, due to circumstances that I’m sure you can all guess, it has been postponed until September. It’s a shame as…

Project Update

About a month ago I told you all about my project plans for the future, and I thought it might be a good idea to keep you updated on how they’re progressing.

Bath time at Wolfe

Last weekend was my first time in a studio this year, and what a way to kick off 2020. We had a beautiful model in the form of Fay Noir, a fantastically designed set by Caroline, and the technical team of Andrew and Alan to keep things running smoothly. The workshop was split into three…

Preparation

Unlike the previous couple of weeks, I’ve not been behind the camera this week so I’ve got no experiments to share with you. What I have for you instead is a little look into what goes into my preparation for a photo-shoot. Tomorrow I will be heading to Wolfe Cottage Studio for what will be…

Playing with ‘Gels’ – Part Two

This time I used two constant lights so I was able to use two colours at simultaneously to see what effects I could create. My model for this experiment…
