Connie B

2015 is flying isn’t it?

I had a casual shoot with Connie B from Brazen Models a few weeks ago.

We kept things pretty simple, opting for some more designs by Jessica Rebell - I really wanted to try out more of the reflections and with a bit of practice, I think I’ve figured out how to control it a little more. Really curious to give it a shot on some upcoming beauty shoots.

Eleanor

It’s been a while since my last post, but it’s been such a great start to the year that I don’t even know where to begin. This week has been full of shoots for me (with more to go!), so I thought I’d share the the first of these images.

I’ve been wanting to shoot with Eleanor from Brazen Models for ages. Everyone that I have met who has previously shot with her cannot stop raving about how amazing she is in front of the camera, and away from it. I found out firsthand for myself - what an absolute delight.

Between Myer castings, clashing dates, cars not being available and a plethora of other reasons, we kept having to reschedule over the course of a month - as well as amending our concepts, our styling and locations. I can safely say that I am SO happy with the final result and it was all worth it.

Special thanks also to Karina for being my lovely assistant on the day and also to Jess for making almost all of the clothes that we shot.

I’ve been trying to do something creatively and technically different for quite a while, and it was great to experiment a little with front bokeh, bending light. It was actually another photographer, Cam Mackie, whose work I stumbled across last year, who inspired me to try something similar in camera using bits and bobs to change the angle of light hitting my lens.

There is no compositing or any other photoshop work, asides from colour correction, adjustments and grading.

Will definitely be using some of this kit in upcoming shoots!
