An evening with….Mark Hadon

Recently had an evening session in the studio with local part time model Mark Hadon. Mark, by day, is a teacher in a local school, and as you can see from the images, really looks after himself.

Mark was great to work with, adept at most poses that he was asked to perform, and some of them was quite hard on his body, despite the rippling muscles.

He even brought his own kit to use…….

Well, he didn’t bring the tyre, that was in the studio.

 

It was a great night, Mark was so easy to work with and has a great personality.

Ellie- A night in the studio

Been a while since my last blog.  Recently carried out a studio shoot with Ellie, who you will see has bright blue hair….Again she was a very nice model to work with, very easy going and not put off by the strange requests that I had, involving screaming her head off as loud as  she could. Needless to say that that image did not work so it will not be appearing on these pages any-time soon, Maybe for another day with another model.

We used a variety of locations in the studio from a bright wall in the entrance to a few backdrops, and even managed to get a chair into the action. I would mention that it must be an age related issue that when I asked Ellie to pose as ‘Christine Keeler’ on the chair I was met with blank expression, however when this was explained as to the pose she went for it, slightly adapted…..

Still a very good night was had and between us we managed to get some good images, certainly somebody I will like to work with again in the future.Ellie2

Equipment used on the night was a Canon EOS60D with a 50mm f1.8 lens. Lighting was a by using the modelling light, with a reflector where required.

Immogen

Another studio shoot with a new model that I had not worked with before.

Immogen7

So let me introduce you to Immogen..who’s normally seen flying the skies from Birmingham airport as she, for her day job, works for a local airline as an air stewardess.

So for the evening I used the main studio, with just one light and kept the modelling light on, rather than use the flash head.

Attached to the studio there is a small cafe, as we were working late this was closed and empty, so instead of letting it lie unused we tried a few shots up there, carefully carrying the light up from the studio.

A good night was had and I look forward to working with Immogen again the future.

Camera used for the night was my Canon EOS60D with my faithful 50mm f1.8 lens, might be a cheap lens, bit produces some great images.

More with Tanya

Have been busy lately so still reviewing and editing images from the night with Tanya. Found some spare time to carry on and have managed to pick out some more that I like.

All where taken on a Canon EOS60D with a Canon 50mm f1.8 lens. I know that this is cheap lens, but  it is perfect for using in the studio and with constant lighting. You just need to use your feet to move and get the best from the equipment and the model.

I still have some more to review and edit , just need to find the time. It is funny that I can more time reviewing and editing the images than it takes to create them in the first instance.

Oh well, here is to bad nights on the TV and bead weather outside………

A day at the coffin works

A while ago a photo shoot was organised for the historic Newman Brothers coffin works in the heart of Birmingham.

We had access to the building before it opened to the public so we were allowed to go ‘beyond the rope’ as long as we did not touch or move any of the exhibits on display.

More information then please look at their website http://www.coffinworks.org/

Below are a few of the images taken during the visit

Interesting Challenge

So at the last camera club meeting we were challenged to come up with a AV project lasting between 1:30 – 3:00 minutes, to include a soundtrack if required.

All to be complete for the end of April 2015 with a grand viewing to be held at a venue sometime in May 2015.

Now to get the thinking cap on, a few ideas kicking around so time to start planning so which may be the best option.

Before this was announced we had a talk by local photographer Richard Battye of his new project based on the form of the human body, some very unusual images and some striking poses.

Check out his work at http://www.riverstudio.co.uk   well woth a look.

Dean

A few images of Dean from a recent shoot. Dean was covered in tattoos. from hi neck down, and he was very proud of them. He was great to work with during the shoot, hopefully will get to work with him some more in the future.

Last images from the Dance shoot

OK, here are the last few images form the dance themed studio shoot. The guy that did these worked very hard for the group and at time he seemed like he was going to explode after been asked to repeat the same moves. Still he was a true professional and carried on with a smile, just above a grimace…
