Last week I did a studio/location shoot with a model I had not worked before, Shawna. The location was the Strangetown Studios located in the Telsen building in Aston, Birmingham. This, many years ago was thriving business making radios, under the name of Telsen, hence the link. It fell into disuse, to be reborn as building now housing many and varied business, including several photo studios, Strangetown Studio been one of them.
The venue is a joy as you can easily flip between the studio with controlled light to the building itself, where there are endless possibilities to use natural light or speedlights, to mix in with the industrial look add feel of a building, lets be honest, in some parts has seen better days, but these give a ‘grunge’ feel to shoots.
So, here a just a few, both studio and location images of the evening with Shawna. As previous posts of other shoots, there will be a part 2 and possibly a part 3 to follow.
Hope you enjoy.
