Second Shoot

After my bad luck with the diner i now have some good luck and have managed to secure a shoot at a 50s style ice cream parlour in Seaham called Lickety Splits! I’m hoping to carry this out on wednesday morning so photos will be up hopefully by the end of the week. 


The first shoot

So I just uploaded a few images from my first shoot at the local little church and i’m quite pleased with them. I’m always most critical of my own work than anything and i’ll go through the phase of hating them in one minute and then feeling good about them the next. I’m looking forward to a group crit on thursday as some input and advice would be really helpful!


Bolton Parish Kirk Shoot (2)
The only thing that really frustrates me about this photo is the over exposure of the right side of her hair (I tried to edit it further but I then lost the overall exposure of the whole image). In these photos I am entirely using natural light through a mix of stained glass and normal windows and sadly the sun decided to blast through at that moment. I still like it as an image overall though but I doubt I will use it.  View Larger

Challenging

I’ve narrowed it down to my top 14 for the 100 odd I shot on the weekend but i’m really struggling to narrow it down further! I’ll be doing this for a while I can tell… 


Marcelo Benfield

Benfield is an established fashion photographer based in London and has worked for many famous brands including Marc Jacobs, Burberry and Selfridges. 

The tones and colours used in these images are beautiful and very fitting to the style of the fashion worn and the location. These images are a great inspiration to my own work with fashion on location and it makes me excited for my future shoots in the cinema and then hopefully followed by the ice cream parlour. 


Jim Dow

"Tracing a landscape of signs, buildings and interiors, Jim Dow’s photographs record the character and the aesthetics of a past era." (Aesthetica Magazine issue 56)

Jim Dow’s work interests me as its like a delicate balance between feeling nostalgic and seeing how things have fallen into disrepair. I love the use of strong colours and how the human element is quite detached and almost ghostly.

The locations that he has chosen to shoot are great, I love old advertising signs and neon especially. Shame getting access to this sort if thing right now is near impossible!


Maroesjka Lavigne

Maroesjka Lavigne spent around 4 months travelling and exploring Iceland, its culture and its people. Her portraits speak to you on a personal and relatable level that “invites a dialogue about the place”. (Aesthetica Magazine issue 56)

The first image gives a feeling of strength and determination and this is seen by her stance as she stands by the powerful waves. The person covered in snow at the viewpoint also gives me a sense of determination and stamina as despite the bad conditions they continue to stand and wait. I especially love the last of the three images. The way the light illuminates her eyes and her messy damp looking hair draws me in and makes me wonder where she has been and where is she going.
