Monday Musings

Another week, another shoot, only one but such a massive day we did 7 concepts in one day, different costumes, different makeup, mostly just two sets. This is just a tiny taste of just how awesome it was. Actually, we had no idea WHAT to call this shoot so it got nicknamed our Awesome day…

Friday Flowers – Contrasts

I recently had a friend come to visit and play in the studio, she brought with her some gifts for me, including these magnificent antlers. So we set about creating the same scene on white and then on black perspex, we wanted something soft and pretty to put with the bleached rawness of the antlers,…

Creating your own Classic Backdrops

With a love of studio portraits, it was only a matter of time before I heard the words Oliphant Backdrops, sure gorgeous, but also a little out of my price league (Or so I thought). But perhaps I could try creating my own, I know other photographers are doing it too. So I went to…
