Ok, a break away from pics of the bairn. This was from the weekend. Had an opportunity to take some shots within an industrial park thats due to be flattened. though, Id say good luck with that, the place is a complete dump with no idea what chemicals spilled all over.

All good, but the bottom one is excellent i'd say!

 

Do you ever use dodge and burn in Photoshop? You could use it on the top photo and it would make it a great photo... dodge the midtones and burn the shadows and you'd get a lot more of the texture in the wall to stand out.

And from the recent pirate day :lol:

Really good pic as well... when and where did you do this?

 

I haven't used my studio stuff much since buying it... I reckon we need to get that shoot organised with a model soon. I actually have something lined up with someone soon that would be right up your street, but its not concrete yet. I'll probs be doing an outdoor shoot with her 1st and then I'll get in touch with you about setting up a studio one.

 

I saw an advert today for a studio to rent... £57 a week. I wish I was a bit further down the line as that would appeal to me greatly. Oh well maybe in the future!

On the post stuff, Im just about to swap from Lightroom to CS5 so I'll be doing a lot more on that. As you know I've shied away from doing much post processing until I was happy with what I was doing in camera. Well now Im pushing more on the post side.

 

The pirate image was actually in my sitting room. The light is from the window. Got him to stand next to it to light up one side of his face etc.

 

I've actually found a studio I'm starting to use and I have a couple of models from MM booked so I'm also hoping to get more done on that side. That about £20 per hour though. I know you are pushing the wedding/couples side of things (where the money is!) though at the moment I'm more into alternative shoots though tbf, I need anything to build up my portfolio so the ones I have booked are pretty standard. So yeah would be good to do some joint stuff as well in or out of the studio. The one Im using also do model nights where they bring in 3-4 models and 3-4 togs.

Yeah photoshop is the bee's knee's tbh... I had dabbled with it briefly many years ago and so knew a few basics when I got the DSLR, so felt comfortable using it straight off, but I know most people like to use something else first and then move on to Photoshop as its a bit of a daunting piece of kit. Tbh it's not once you get to grips with it, but I totally see why most people want to build up to it.

 

Haha good old MM? I've had what? 4 shoots booked in and all 4 have cancelled either on the day or the day before? I hope you have more luck than me mate.

 

£20 an hour isn't bad but seeing as I have some of my own gear are you up for doing a shoot at your work still if I can get the model?

 

I should really attend one of these nights tbh... It's not the easiest thing for me as I like to do things my own way lol, but I think it'd be a valuable learning experience. Any chance you could give me a heads up next time you're going to one?

 

Yeah money is the root of all evils but tbh I need / want the money so I can keep building my business. I like to dabble and do things even if they aren't paid though tbh too, but ultimately I have my business head on first and foremost, and the hobby side of things comes second (but will still always get a look in... i'm lucky that I enjoy both aspects I think). This thing I have lined up that I might get you involved in isn't paid but should be a lot of fun, would suit you as its alternative and involves tattoo's and piercings. Also other things like gig photography but I'm uncertain about that one as I dont enjoy that a great deal.

Yeah still quite happy to do one at my place, no probs there at all. Just let me know.

 

I'll let you know when that next group shoot was happening. I think the next one was an alt shoot night so I was particularly interested.

 

Any other things Id always be up for something. Im not in it for money so no worries on that side. I already have a stressful job so this is purely for enjoyment for me!

Busy sorting through a shit load of shots from a recent studio day. Here's one I've just done that I was pleased with.

Looks like its from an advert for the NSPCC or something lol... Its a nice shot tho, just can't help thinking it's about to come with some sort of story about x child who was forced to live in a suitcase by his parents :ermm:

Great shots mate... very impressive :)

 

I like the use of negative space in the last one, but would it have worked even better if she was looking in to the negative space? Not sure as can see what you were going for with the pic and think it works well as it is. Would have liked to see this and then one with her looking in to it too as think both would work well.

 

I think my favourite is the 2nd pic

Yeah of the port shots I prob prefer the 2nd but wish I'd have done it with a great dof. At the time I liked the idea of blurring her face slightly but now I think I should have taken both shots.

Actually think the shallower DOF works well mate and not sure you'd have benefited from having her fully in focus. I like it the way it is :)

Love these images mate! I always think if using a white backdrop B&W works so much better than colour and these images are top drawer!

 

Very high contrast... are these "High key"? Not sure of the lingo with this kind of thing but have heard that used before for high contrast images I think

You could maybe class the bottom one as hi-key Id think but have a read of - http://www.diyphotography.net/lighting-high-key-and-low-key

 

I gave 80 images from this shoot. Obviously these were of varying degrees of quality. But I was happy with them, I should fine out in a day or so if they were!

Couple of images here from this weekends walk. Its a shame really, I dont give myself the time to correctly grab images up there. Mainly that I dont carry my tripod and photo's are taken fairly hastily. I should really arrange a walk with photography as its primary goal..

All really good mate but the bottom one made me want to print it on a canvas and put it on my wall... really top notch!
