I had a great time with a photoshoot at the friendly and homely “Limefield Recording Studios” on Saturday with the equally friendly “Unfurl” playing beautiful Indian, jazzy and Arabic rhythms, creating an original fusion sound. Over the road, from John Ellis’s studio, is a lovely autumnal woodland and lake, ideal location to take some out door shots. — with Olivia Moore, Gavin Barras, Jim Faulkner, Maria Jardardottir and John Ball
I had a rewarding day on the 1st June 2014, helping and advising at the Royal Photographic Society (N.W. Region) Portrait Day Event at Tabley Hall.
Organised by Alan Angel, with Diane Seddon and myself. All 3 of us setting up mobile studios / lights and advising the 24 signed up for the day. Several models in 1920’s costumes, who were also part of a local amateur dramatics group, HATS, did an amazing job of posing with and without direction in this stately home and it’s grounds. Here is a group photo I took of the actors using a “tableau vivant” style.
I really pleased with this photograph I took of Porthgain Harbour, Pembrokeshire, at Low Tide in December last year. I have made this image using 3 separate hand held shots at differing exposures and combining them in the computer to produce a High Dynamic Range (HDR) final image. I then converted it to B&W using SilverFXPro2 to make it more dramatic.
