Both shoots have a Monochromatic style to then, however, the second shoot is less eye-catching but still effective in telling a story or selling a product. For my final project, I have been experimenting with colour to see the impact an image can have on a viewer. For my first test, I looked at using the colour Red. So I have created a vibrant image that would work well in advertising. The second set is darker with an editorial approach. The aim was to see how the images worked separately and as a set.
Morning all Photography has been my passion for many years and as time has passed I have looked at different ways to enhance my technics. What I found was I had to go to different sites to learn different aspects. However, I came across Phlearn on Youtube. This improved my understanding of how to edit by watching their Videos. With most questions, I have come across while editing Phlearn always seem to have an answer and when if there isn’t an answer you can ask a question and they answer.
Evening all sorry for being away for so long, I have been busy working on some work for my BA in photography at Northampton University. This is the first post of the year and I thought why not have some fun with Face Paint. All the images were produced in a small cabin studio a good friend of mine just built he also allowed me to use his Canon 5D. And for the first time, I have decided it is time to change my Canon 700D, the main reasoning for this is the colour range is higher and noticeable when editing. For this shoot, I asked Keiley MUA to produce something different and she really brought a WOW factor to the shoot. I also brought in two models Kasey & Sachara with lots of character and beautiful looks. This was also a chance for me to try a new crop I have seen a lot in the Beauty industry, this technique is especially popular with Julia Kuzmenko Mckim. Julia is a Beauty Cosmetics, Skin Care Photographer and Retoucher for Broncolor USA Brand Ambassador Retouching Academy founder. Thank you for taking time to look at my work. Have a good Xmas, See you in the […]
Bouncing Gel Lighting, for this lighting set up I used two boards to bounce light on to my model. I added a turquoise Gel on one light and a Blue light on the other one and for the second shoot I changed the blue Gel for a red one. The set up created a 3d effect around my model.
Over the next few weeks I will be developing my portfolio with Colour Gels. The aim is to have 5-10 High end images, I will be testing different techniques and also linking my colours to the feelings the image will express. I will also look at Colour theory, this plays a important part in Fashion photography. For my first test shoot I wanted to keep the same model and same look but change the colour of my gels to see if the image feels different. As you can see below by changing the colours the images are either warm or cold. Colour Theory click on the link to learn more about Colour Theory
Before and after of a location in a gym shoot. The lighting set up wasn’t brilliant so getting the desired effect wasn’t easy. In this tutorial I will show the techniques I used to transform a ordinary image into an eye catching one.

Creating a brush in Photoshop is helpful when editing in photoshop.. Normally I will download a brush but this week I decided to create a dust brush in photoshop. It is simpler than I first thought. I have attached a video to show how this technique was achieved.
