For ages Darryn has been wanting me to do shots of him and since I have no shots of guys in my portfolio I thought why not. Anyway eventually we both managed to find some time when we were both free to do a shoot.
The shoot was a laugh, as it was always going to be with Darryn, he’s not exactly camera shy. Also did some shots of Darryn with his friend Robyn and Gemma, which I’m sure I will upload later when I get around to working on them.
I’m quite pleased with what I have achieved with these shots. Think I’m happier with the monochrome shots than the ones in colour that I did. Wasn’t my best idea to get Darryn to wear a white shirt when we were shooting against a white background, oh well lesson learned.
I did my first “baby” shoot the other week, one of my work friends wanted some photos of their new baby son (James John Clifton-Sprigg) who is only a few months old.I thought it would be a good opportunity to add something different to my portfolio.
Baby photography can be difficult because it really is about capturing the moment, you rarely get a second chances to retake a shot with very young children. I was very lucky that James was so good he pretty much just posed and didn’t seem too fussed about the camera flashing away at him.
I managed to get some nice indoor shots of him, but also did some outside with his parents to get a few good family shots.
After the last shoot that I did with Mairi it wasn’t hard to persuade her to get back in to the studio to do another shoot.
We worked on some high key shots this time round and played around with different lighting styles. Got some pretty funky shots to add to my portfolio.
