Caught myself day dreaming of European city breaks today!
Here’s a little project I’ve been working on, on the side.. an Antler headdress.
I made the antlers from craft wire that I already had floating around in my art box and then wrapped them in tin foil (whilst watching the movie The Worst Witch). Then I papier mache’d them… once dried I stuck them to a cheap headband that I bought in Primark for a pound, using a hot glue gun. Then added lots of silk flowers that I’ve been collecting from various places, including a recent flower shoot. I love how well it turned out.
Brings all the boys to the yard!
I was please to hear that this month my whole salmon photo was chosen as shot of the month at work.. Yay… love this shot! I was such a task, the fish is so big trying to find something to put it on that looks the right size and trying not to lose scale of the fish. I was so please with the outcome.
Chef and I larking about in front of the camera for once… happy Friday!
I’m going to try and start posting a little more behind the scenes because when people see my set and then the shot on my screen they really love seeing the difference between the reality and the final shot. So here’s a fish shot I’ve been working on, the brief was to have an outside setting so I aimed for a beach feel.
Behind the scenes
You would not believe some of the things we have to do… reviving radishes for one!! This week we found ourselves having to shoot a ton of radishes which sadly where past their best and all the local stores had run out… this is what we did t bring them back to life.
Doing a couple of fun shots for ourselves using whatever we had left over in the fridge. I think pork pies look so nice in photographs!
Spent the day shooting tomatoes, prepped and un prepped. Whilst shoot I took a couple of snaps of behind the scenes on my phone. I always think its nice to see what the shot looks like in reality.
In between shoots today I took a little time out to shoot something for myself. I wanted to shoot something different to my usual style and instead of rustic and dark I fancied experimenting with pastels and bright lighting. These were the results… refreshing.
