I love product photography, probably as it's one of the more geeky forms of photography! You need to think about location, composition, lighting, depth of field, focal length, white balance, I could go on.... The traditional product shot with the subject cutout on a white background has it's place but I prefer placing objects in an environment creating more of a narrative.
Ask any of my friends and they'll tell you I'm certainly not an expert when it comes to dancing however as soon as the group of final year students took to the stage it was obvious even to me that they were a very talented group. Coupled with the fantastic theatre facilities and lighting technicians the pressure was certainly on to capture some good images.
"Never Work With Children or Animals", thought I would get the obvious cliche out the way first!
Baby/toddler portraiture is one of the services I offer and with a bit of planning and patience the above does not apply! Using a mobile studio means I can shoot at your house which tends to mean a more relaxed child. For a no obligation quote please visit my portraiture page.
Bath stone looks fantastic in the autumn sunshine and with my elbow well on the way to recovery I couldn't resist picking up my DSLR again. For my first outing I probably should have chosen a small light lens but these were all taken with my 70-200 f/2.8 which is the heaviest lens in my bag...
Earlier this year I bought a FujiFilm x100, a fixed focal length digital camera with styling and controls reminiscent of traditional film cameras. It's small size and weight makes it's the perfect camera for a restless photographer with his arm in plaster!
