Swinging 50’s.

So this week I was supposed to do a shoot at a Photography Cafe with my gorgeous friend Raven L’amore; but alas the dreaded Lurgi has infected her. So the owner of the cafe arranged another model at short notice. A beautiful blond lass called Beth, who does 50’s Pin-up brilliantly.

Image of 2017.

After finding my best image of 2016, with that image of the Canal in Birmingham city centre; I am now Trying to find my best image of 2017. It’s amazing how much portrait photography I have done this year with some very beautiful ladies, and how little Public Transport and Landscape/Urban i’ve done this year. I’ve therefore selected the five images I like the best and if anyone would like to express an opinion, i’m all ears.

Two shoots in two days

Friday night I meet up with my Photography group for a shoot around Birmingham city centre, doing some basic and a little bit of slow shutter speed (I need a lighter tripod that humping around my sturdy one).

University

During my free time lately I have been lurking around the University of Birmingham; with is mixture of Red Brick Victorian building to very modern 21st Century building, in-between you have the Brutalist 1960’s architecture of Muirhead Tower, a 16 story building standing like a sentinel over the campus.

Why?

Why do photographers obsess over an image?

I have my obsession: Two years ago I shoot a portrait with my friend Porscha and I can not get it out of my head; I have now edited it over 20 times, and time and again I look to make it just that little more perfect, and always I am thinking “How can I make this better?”, I still I want to make it better.
