My Photo Gallery is made up from a small selection of photographs primarily taken using an iPhone 4S and Canon EOS 60D DSLR. I’ve edited and processed most of these recently using Adobe Lightroom 4, Photoshop CS5 and Aperture. Previously I’ve used Photoscape and iPhone App’s like Camera+ (Which I still use as my favourite iPhone App)
Gallery 15 is a selection of photographs for the final submission to the crtique for the Studio and Location Photography I took in 2012. I had to shortlist from the 100′s of photographs taken over the course duration of 10 weeks to just 25 photographs. Of which at least 1 or 2 should be from each of the assignments set either in class or as mid week home assignments.
Assignments for the studio location photography course include ‘Still-life for Advertising’, ‘Studio and Creative Lighting Techniques’, ‘Editorial’ and ‘Fashion/Portrait Photography’. Photographs were taken in Studio using state of the art studio Broncolor lighting equipment and on location using either natural light or battery powered lighting. We had a choice of location for the Editorial location shoot and our choice was Swanage, which proved to be a good choice as we were extremely lucky with the weather – cold but dry and bright.
The second location shoot took place at Upton Country Park, the weather unfortunately not so kind but luckily we were shooting indoors in the basement of Upton House a Grade II listed building. We used the natural light filtering through the dirty windows and portable studio/location lighting kit. The reflectors we brought along proved to be essential when using the natural lighting and also proved useful when using the lighting equipment – something similar is now on my wish list. They are cheap to buy and the results obtained when reflecting natural light onto a models face amazing, removing the shadows produced by the main light source.
