I have been completely overwhelmed with the number of reactions I got from The Photography Show post, especially when Rankin tweeted to me, I just couldn’t believe it. So thank you to you all that read it, and even more thanks to those that have come back for more! I was very disappointed that I don’t think I have enough photos for you all to see, so here’s some!
A few weeks ago I collaborated with a few of my friends for their media coursework, a composition to go towards a “1980’s gangster concept but in a 1950’s style”, and they have kindly given me permission to share my favourite photo’s with you all. I was very lucky to have a model, George, that listened to me and came up with some really great compositions.
However, if I had to learn something from this shoot it would keep it simple. Simple works, matches, fire and booze bottles do not, well not for a small set up in your living room anyway.
I hope you like them, I use more than one flash box occasionally, promise, but you can’t beat a bit of edge lighting in my opinion.
