More Christmas Fashion

unlike the Instax shots below these were all shot on my normal digital set up, i've still been under the weather since this so haven't done a huge amount of editing, but this small bundle i was happy with.

I'm still unsure if group shoots in this way are the right thing for me, in fact i'm pretty sure that they really aren't for me, but if there are opportunities to do interesting things like this then i'll probably still do some of them.

I don't think it helped i was under the weather but definitely some others were also a little oblivious to the time they were taking up shooting.

Still .... got some nice images.


Christmas Fashion in an Instant

A group shoot at Synergy doing Christmas Fashion with Ziggy and Belle Eve, yeah i wasn't going to knock back opportunity at all.

I woke up on the morning of this with a stinker of a cold and really could have done with being in my bed and it's not got much better since, but the opportunity to work with both of these lovely models was too much for me to resist.

This first set of instant shots, on instax wide and shot using the Fuji Instax Wide 300 camera was scanned, as usual, on my Epson V330 Perfection, with just a basic dust and speckle reduction and basic unsharp mask filter applied.

Some really nice ones in this set.

Neither Creepy Nor Cooky

I've been loving getting back into photography again and having seen a studio day advertised at Candy Heart in Falkirk with a Sexy Wednesday Addams Halloween theme i couldn't resist it.

The original model seemed to flake so Dorinka was brought in a fairly last minute but i'm actually happier that she was as i think she suits the look to a T.

I'm happy with the B&W on this as well for the first time in a while, i think it really suits the look, but the colour splash on the background displays look great and add real depth to the images for me.

More below from this shoot and I will definitely be back at Candy Heart and working with Dorinka in the future.

Vanessa Trying to Become Charliez Angel

So when i mentioned to my mate Jon Robert that i wanted to shoot some tattooed models he set me up with a test shoot with Vanessa as a test shoot for her and the Charliez Angels Scottish Squad which Jon sorts and deals with.

Vanessa is a brilliant model to work with, fun, easy to deal with and great at posing, yet takes direction well and i'm absolutely over the moon with a great selection of images from this shoot.

have a look at the images and please let me know what you think and i really do hope i get to work with Vanessa again.

A mix of images shot on the canon and some using the olympus and the SLR magic again.










When Miss Sassy Su Gets Down To It

Another pretty last minute shoot with Miss Sassy Su, i really need to get more oganised for stuff with Saskia but to be fair we always get images i like so i'm quite happy with the last minute-ness of these shoots.

The plan this time was to shoot some classy boudoir inspired lingerie style shots and Ally ended up being at the studio so assisted with the fine art style lighting of this (it's good to have someone there to pop the lights into the right direction for you)

Really happy this set of images, lots of lovely classy images, and lots more still to go through.

Look out for more from this set in the future.

Kat at the Pier

I posted a last minute casting yesterday and got a few responses, but first on the list was Kat T, so we arranged to meet this morning for a shoot, with a mood board between us giving some suggestions.

Our initial plan of using Linlithgow Loch as a backdrop was killed off by the Pedal for Scotland event causing havoc with the roads so a quick move along to underneath the Forth Bridge (yup the one Everyone calls the Forth Rail Bridge) was undertaken.

The weather turned for us, with the rain stopping and the sun shining just as Kat arrived, and it began again just as we were heading back to the cars.

This was an entirely digital shoot, with a mix of my Canon kit and the Olympus Pen with the SLR magic Toy lens for some added interest on some of the shots.

Kat is a natural beauty and great fun to work with, and I'm already looking forward to working with her again in the future.
