Despite vowing to do so I’ve not been keeping the blog here updated. Social media is the enemy to this sort of thing. So time for some catch up.
Back in July, Habs came back into the studio to model one of her own Double Crossed Clothing t-shirts. We also took a lingerie shot with her in fully fashioned stockings, something that I’ve wanted to shoot for a long time. No lasers this time, but always fun.
While editing those I found leggings shot from our last shoot that I had never properly processed. The latest version of Lightroom came to the rescue. New algorithms FTW.
Some time ago I shot a series of leggings images. It was only planned as a 6 image series, but that quickly extended to 8 and then 10 shots of 12 friends. The images were posted individually when they were taken, but have never been posted together as intended. I’ve finally got round to making that composite image in advance of making some large prints.
The individual images are here: Leggings
New model gallery added for my friend Lin. Our first shoot was very creative and enormous fun. Much of what we do is collaborative, so more interesting work to come from that partnership.
Her gallery is here: Lin
After far too long a break, I got Sharon back in front of the lens for some light painting and infrared shots, which is alway great fun and was very productive. After posting Portal and Emblem on Facebook I got a bit of a spike in traffic on her page here, so they’ve been popular images. More to come from her in the near future I hope.
Continuing the corset theme, Shari’s 2nd trip into the studio produced this infrared shot, as well as a lightpainted image with the big mirror. There may also be a Polaroid to come, but I’m still weighing that up agains a digital image of the same pose. Still not sure which is the better, but there can be only one.
With Kirsty as model, yellow did indeed become the 5th colour in this series – after a brief, but futile, attempt to get a deep blue fabric to work. Only later did I realise that the light I was using, being incandescent, doesn’t put out a lot of blue light. So expecting expecting a strong blue glow from it was a bit optimistic. Yellow did the trick though, and produced a more accurate colour than the previous two images. One more to complete this series. Probably electric pink. Probably.
