Portraits using studio lighting!

As I said before, we have had the opportunity to use proper studio lighting for some portraits. I also had the pleasure of demonstrating this at open evening for my school! In these portraits I have used a variety of different lighting set ups which I will explain under each photo. Also thanks to Charlotte for modelling and allowing me to post these photos!

I have finished the alphabet project and the work on depressed now and we have moved on to portraiture.

A-Level photography!

Our first task was called the alphabet project which was taking photos of something that looks like the letters A-Z and the second was similar but with a word. My word that was picked at random was ‘depressed’. I now have to take…

Bournemouth Air show 2014- The Vulcan

Heres the next few photos from the saturday of The Bournemouth Air Festival. These images are of the Vulcan, a strategic bomber used from 1956 until 1984 by the Royal Air Force. This massive plane has a flap where a huge bomb can be dropped. Despite the size it is surprisingly quiet, making it perfect for bombing runs as you would never hear it coming until it was too late to do anything about it!

Bournemouth Air show 2014- Red Arrows

Yesterday I went to the Bournemouth Air Show! My uncle hired out a hotel room on the top floor of a hotel giving me the opportunity to photograph some of the incredible air crafts. I was using my 55- 200mm lens and got some decent results. One of the best acts of the day is Britains No. 1 display team: the Red arrows! Sadly there were only 8 of them due to Red 3’s wife going into labour. Despite…

While working at a small village fete on the lawn of Athelhampton House I had a wonder round and spotted a stall selling items that had been donated. I noticed a fujifilm instax 100 camera which is basically fujifilms version of the polaroid.
