After careful thought, and a little hesitation, we decided to get the band back together. The end result was a proud acknowledgement by The Society of International Fashion and Glamour Photographers. Naturally the whole team were over the moon at achieving this and we are now all busy shaping the concept for the next photoshoot.

The Little Red Dress

Making time to be creative... The idea was to create an image in the local area using little to no money. With the beautiful Emma on board and a quick eBay purchase made, we had the green light to make it happen. We got incredibly lucky with the weather and, despite it being very cold, had an incredible time playing around with the ambient and flash lighting. Hopefully you like the end result.

A huge thank you to Emma for being so professional, patience and resistant to the cold. This is the second time we have worked together and fingers crossed it wont be the last.

Red dress material: Fabric Magic in Trowbridge

Location: The White Horse Hill, Westbury, Wiltshire.

Portrait: Kaytee (Miss Dolly May)

We had the pleasure of photographing Miss Lady Ink UK 2016 yesterday. Kaytee was a natural in front of the camera and a true pleasure to photograph.

Making the most of a rainy day...

Still recovering from a NHS operation and it is raining outside. So rather than watch more Judge Judy I decided to start the challenge I set myself before Christmas. This challenge started when I came across a lonely discounted Stormtrooper sitting on a shop shelf. I started to wonder how I could light it so it stood out. So in exchange for a few pennies I accepted the challenge...

Now since my mobility is currently limited I decided to wreck the lounge trying to create this masterpiece. Luckily our lamp shade fitted the mood of the image so I used that and placed the Stormtrooper within the window frame (a frame within a frame).

My tools of choice were the Yongnuo YN-560 IV Manual Flashes all controlled via a central trigger mounted on top of the Nikon D800. I used a couple of Bessel strip boxes (with grids) on either side to provide a little kicker light. The central light was modified with a Barn Door to provide a very small amount of light down the middle. Then the background was lit with four more manual flashes (with gels) to help provide the blue (walls), red (window) and orange (light shade & stormtrooper) colouring. The camera was set to 1/250s (sync speed) at ISO 100 with an aperture of f/4.0 (to provide some separation from the background).

The secret to doing this whilst having a poorly leg is by having the Yongnuo flash system that you can control centrally (power & zoom) and the camera being connected (tethered) to the laptop. I could just sit back and tinker until I got the effect I wanted.

So whilst I wait for my leg to recover from this little exercise I thought I would share the out of camera preview image. This is the unedited version with no Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop trickery. What do you think? Was it worth the effort?

Couples Portrait: Kelvin & Suzie

Some of the first images taken at the start of the session. Time to relax and start getting used to the camera and lighting. 

Portrait: Katharina

A family visit at Christmas turned into an impromptu studio session. A huge thanks to our lovely model (Sister) for posing in our lounge x

Portrait: Max

At the end of a newborn session yesterday Max kindly offered to pose for a quick portrait. Our aim here was to practice a very fast setup to achieve Rembrandt lighting. The inspiration for this image came from Glyn Dewis. This technique enables us to offer something a little different from the traditional portrait. We hope you like it...
