These are all my posts in chronological order. Have a scroll through my whole body of work if you want to just pick out the bits you like.
Last Saturday I headed to Tokyo to do a shoot for a friend, & by a shoot I mean four. This is the first of the four. Unfortunately our original model let us down & we had to find a back up model at very short notice. Still manage to get some good shots out of the day. This first set up needed to be super dramatic so I had 2 softboxes on the left, one high one low, & a light behind on to some very cool skull wallpaper. You probably worked it out but the image on the right has been mirrored for the diptych composition.
As well as my Canon 5D mkII, I also took my trusty Pentacon Six. The Six is an East German made medium format camera from the 60s(ish). I think I said it all on my last post with all my digital shots, so just enjoy the photos.
This weekend Spadge & I headed over to Kwenwick woods for a weekend in a log cabin set in a 320 acre estate in the Lincolnshire Wolds. It was so good. Perfect weather, amazing food & amazing company. We did a few walks & a lot of relaxing. On Saturday night the snow started coming down, by the morning the woods felt more like the Scandinavian country side than the east cost of England. I took so many photos it was hard to decide which to upload, so you’ve got a boat load. If you manage to get all the way to the bottom of the post you’ve done well, but it should be worth it.
January 19th 2012 brought with it with the second New Adventures In Web Design conference. I attended with Ashley “I’m A Secret Lesbian” Baxter — always fun to hangout with her. Expectations were high after last years success but, for me, this year surpassed last years by a mile. I took a lot away from the day, not least that we work, live & play in one of the most exiting industries ever #fact!
Sarah & I took the short trip over to Sherwood Forest last Sunday to play in the trees & have a picnic. It was awesome. The light couldn’t have been any more perfect. Check out the mass of photos in this post.
Yesterday after work I shot over to Leeds to see bad boy photographer Jordan Green, with him being down in Farnham most of the time now we don’t get to hang out so much but it’s always nice to see him. He dragged out his friend Katie & we played with lights & took some photos in 600 mph winds — challenging.
Been a little while since I had all my lights out for a play, been craving it today — so I convinced Sarah to let me shoot her in the face. POW!
This weekend I did a 600(ish) mile round trip up to Glasgow to see Ashley, I’d owed her a visit for a little while & finally managed to make time for the 5 hour drive north. The weather wasn’t kind to us, I’m not scared of a little rain but I think I spent more time soaked to the bone than dry… it messed up our plans a little but we still had a lot of fun (as per usual).
This killed me… I’m dead… I’m finished… I’m gone… This real life is over & I can hide again, withdraw into darkness… I’m not typing any more — watch the video.
