… when I wanted to make a go of this ‘photography’ lark I did a few photo shoots. I’m really proud of some of the work I did and am sad that I don’t have time to do so much any more. I no longer have my lights (in limbo at the moment) and I’m still trying to work out the whys and wherefores of off-camera flash. I’ve never been particularly good at lighting techniques and it’s something I really would like to practice again (when I get new lights I guess).
But here are a few portraits that I’m still proud of:
This photograph was taken in a make-shift photobooth we set up (before they became all hip and trendy). I was there for what seemed like hours, capturing the crazy looks of the revelers.
I did some work with models off Model Mayhem to build up my portfolio. This one was featured in a magazine which I should really hunt out!
Anarkali – a photograph from two days spent photographing bellydancers at a Bellydance Superstar event. I loved these women – so inspiring.
Samantha Emmanuel. She invited me down to Devon to photograph a bellydance weekend and I spent some time doing a shoot with her.
At the Spiegeltent when it was next to Battersea Power station.
This was a photo shoot with a MUA and a model to build our portfolios. He was up for ANYTHING so we dressed him as a fairy. I was really proud of my editing more than anything on this.
I’m going to hunt out some of my ‘band’ photographs later in the week. It’s fun going through the archives – I think I was an ‘ok’ photographer at one point!
