In-between all this traveling about, I’ve still managed to fit in a Seaham seascape, with a bit of BTS/gear stuff thrown in for good measure!
Here’s the Instagram BTS-some might find the Instagram image more appealing, but hey! I like jazz and heavy metal!!
And here’s the gear/stuff.
L to R- Nikon D800e with 85 PCE lens, Lee filter holder with 10 stop Firecrest and Lee 0.6 hard grad filters-note eye piece blind closed! LowePro bag, Nikon 24 & 45 PCE lenses, Filter bag, GoPro 4 black on selfie stick, Glasses and Hoodman loope. Last picture showing Neewer timer attached and a few millimetres of tilt applied to the lens to keep everything sharp (also I stick down the pop up flash with tape, as it’s the most annoying thing about this camera!) Below is the finished result-F8 240.2 second exposure ISO 320, rendered out in Lightroom the finished off in Photoshop.
And the word on the street is…….sharing, here’s some images I created on some downtime whilst on location in London, there’s more images uploaded to the portfolio side of the site. Again these were created with a Sony RX100v, and again the architectural detail rears its head, but hang on there’s a street image in here. Are they texting each other asking “where are you” if only this was true! I created a lot more images than these two, and maybe I’ll share some more soon.
I’ve been shooting on location a lot recently Dundee, London, Edinburgh, The Borders and Rugby, sometimes we drive and the rest of the time we take the train so the biggest problem at the moment is how to transport the equipment on these trips, with my crystal ball I can see a post about this soon, maybe!!
I’ve been on my travels again, a short stop in Dundee. If you haven’t guessed already I love an archtectural detail, so following on from the Sunderland posts here’s a few things I spotted in Dundee. I try and pick on compositions that are slightly “off” that’s not saying that Dundee is slightly “off” it probably means I am!
My well worn, trusty Fuji X20 has taken a bit of a back seat lately, these were all created with a Sony RX100v, the extra files size helps when applying some retouching.
A while ago I was asked to create some images for actress Debbie Honeywood, these would be used for her IMDb page/card. Debbie’s the lead actress in the new Ken Loach film “Sorry we missed you” and if you follow the news from the recent Cannes Film Festival, it’s tipped to be another great Ken Loach film, don’t take my word for it, look it up on the web from the critics that have seen it!
The images needed to be natural with a bit of character, so a simple approach was the plan and also (as usual) to have a bit of laugh. For the gearheads-Nikon D4, 85mm f1.8, a big soft light for inside and a joke book from 1978 for an update to my usual jokes!
At this point I’d usually say good luck with the film, but to be honest, I’m not sure they’ll need that from me!
