True Colors

Posted Posted in Photoshoot

As promised, after a winter black and white session lacking the uplift effect we all need at this time of year, here come the colorful spring spirit! I had never tried tone on tone colour shoot before and wanted to give it a shot… Lighting was a bit overkill but my intention was to get […]

Dim Light

Posted Posted in Photoshoot

Playing with lights is the photographer’s prerogative and the ultimate chalenge is to reduce it to almost nothing. What do we get when only scattered photons make their way to our model features? I tried to find out by isolating any parasite lights and using a partially covered soft box behind my model. Here are […]

Twelve Monkeys

Posted Posted in Photoshoot, Travel

Well, I say twelve but everyone knows that when traveling between the tropics, one encounters way more monkeys than this little 2 digits number! Kids find them funny to watch, adults too, particularly if you decide to anthropomorphise them to a certain point! As I was reviewing the pictures taken from different locations in Sri […]

The Wild One

Posted Posted in London Scenery, Photoshoot

My summer experiment with stars and nocturnal skies awoke my desire to acquire an extra wide lens with large aperture. The now well known Samyang 14mm f 2.8 fits the criteria and despite not featuring an auto-focus, is praised for its sharpness and overall quality. One thing is to get the tool another is to […]

Cover Girl

Posted Posted in Photoshoot

Most of my studio work is focused on students and for obvious legal reasons, I never display it on my blog nor any public medium. I sometime manage to get grown ups to step in and let them play with decor, clothes and postures. none of the following pictures were my ideas. It was a […]

Dark around the Stars

Posted Posted in Photoshoot, Travel

One living in a big city is de facto excluded from the clubs of star gazers as the myriads of celestial objects to be elsewhere looked upon are hidden by the glowing ugly lights of our dwellings and luxurious retail units. One can still be very interested or even passionate about the big universe  surrounding us […]

I Saw The Light…

End of year holiday was once again an opportunity to spend time shooting different kind of pictures. Since I shoot kids in school most of the year, landscape would be a easy choice. I also wanted to try venturing in less known territories and decided to try unusual lighting conditions. First occasion was given by […]

Mystic River

Posted Posted in London Scenery, Photoshoot

London would not be London without a river flowing through. We, Londoners, go through life crossing this vital waterway without thinking too much of it (or do not even cross it at all!!!). And believe me when I say crossing, I mean it – living in south London and working in Kentish Town gives me two […]

Dog Wedding

Posted Posted in London Scenery, Photoshoot

Viruses, as you probably experienced yourselves, strike at the worst time. So imagine my disappointment on a wedding shooting day when I wake up groggy and miserable. You cannot realistically call off the event, so filed up with king of Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug Paracetamol, I grab my gears and ride to the “Make up and Hair […]

Lines

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Photoshoot, Travel

A very short lay-over does not give many oportunities to discover a big city like New York. We got started in Brooklyn (High Street station) and made our way to Battery Park by foot, crossing the East River on Brooklyn Bridge. Roads, cables and glass panels were all like lines, stretching in all directions. I […]
