Lydia and Gemma

This is a test shoot for a project I am doing for my final major this year. Here I have photographed students who have a part-time job to help them pay for bills and day to day living during their stay at University. I wanted the lighting in the studio to be very simple as I did not want to take away from the clothing and the people them selves. I did this because I feel that everyone changes when they in their work cloths and find this concept very interesting.

This week I decided to get back in the studio for the first time in over a year, one because my studio skills need dusting off and two because I wanted to try something new and different to my normal photographic approach. I wanted to try and light the full body with a minimum amount of shadow cast. I also wanted to give the hase One P30+ back on a Hasselblad a go to get a feel for it. Over all I am happy with what I achieved but its not the look I wanted, I am in the studio again next Wednesday so will be having another go, as well as shooting someone other than a mate from my course.

Links of the Week - 01

I have decided to post a few of links that I found during the week and want to share with anyone who looks at my blog.

I hope that this new addition to my blog is as helpful to you as it has been for me.

Video Wednesday - 14

This is a video I found of Youtube of a guy walking across America all done with stop motion photography. What I really like about this video is how the gentlemen is always the same height and length from the camera in every frame, this must have taken a lot of time and hats off to the people involved in this.

Louis and Fire Bin

This was shot that I took during December of my house mate burning a few things in the fire bin. There is no meaning behind it or thought, I just shot it as I liked the contrast of the green surroundings with the reds and browns of the fire bin, with a hint of winter coming from the frost on the grass.

I have not been out in a while with my Bronica, so maybe it is time I went out with the old boy and got some lovely 6x6 shots again. Keep a look out for new work to come over the coming months.
