May has been a pretty busy month as I am still working on my quarry commission and I have also started a studio photography course. So whilst I would normally be sipping a fresh coffee and enjoying a leisurely saunter into the weekend, the last few weeks have looked a little different. They have seen me catch the equivalent of the red eye (okay the fast train from Edinburgh to Glasgow) where I have been having a lot of fun experimenting with studio lighting. It’s just great to be in the studio with all sorts of big lighting rigs, attachments, reflectors and an equally enthusiastic bunch of students eager to learn!
So I thought I would post a few of the images I captured this weekend. The morning seen me working on still life images…all light and bright whilst in the afternoon I was shooting Ali in the studio in some darker images. It’s hard to believe that there was a horrid purple backdrop behind him! I have a bit of a thing for dramatic lighting that casts strong shadows and creates atmosphere…so I tried a few of my own. So here’s a snapshot of what I got up to.
