The Secret Garden

Here is the latest picture from the recent shoot with Melanie Doyle and Sarah Reed

It’s so rewarding working with like minded people who go the extra mile to achieve the “shot” that is lurking somewhere in the back of my mind – both Melanie & Sarah were and are a dream to work with and be around.

The Secret Garden

I think I am going to call this “The Secret Garden” ¬†unless I think of a Queenly title – thought of Queen Of The Fairies… but should she have wings??

There are lots more to come from this shoot and its spawned more ideas for future themes ūüôā

Same Background – Different “Story”

Spellbound

Continuing with the theme of same background different “story” here is todays offering.

The field is the same with the same dropped in sky. The sky on the day I photographed the field was just a plain blank grey so it needed to be changed… so I did.

The top picture is an enchantress casting a spell over the bird… why?¬† what for? did she succeed ? its up to you to decide.

The bottom picture is the same background¬†but with¬†a completely different feel. This¬†beautiful woman, as one with nature, is watching butterflies emerge from the good earth – full of hope and wonderment.¬†A picture filled with love and beauty…. well hopefully.

Faith-in-field-2

Same background different concept and feel…. hopefully ūüôā

Early Fine Art Nudes – My Recent Journey

The Artists model

Having had a recent Fine Art Nude¬† shoot it has encouraged me to have a look back at my first photographic attempts.¬† I have drawn and painted many models both female and male in life classes at art school and the above picture (the first session I had with the delightful Ivory Flame) combined both disciplines …….well I think so anyway.

Voyouer

I think mono and Fine Art Nudes go together and I feel that this photograph is a nice example of that. This was my very first Fine Art Nude photographic session back in 2008 – I am pleased to say there were many more to follow and now I¬†organise Fine Art Nude photographic workshops to encourage others to “have a go” at the genre.

THE ABOVE PICTURES WERE ALL TAKEN IN 2008 AND REPRESENTED BY FIRST PHOTOGRAPHIC  ATTEMPS AT FINE ART NUDE PHOTOGRAPHY

I learned quite early on that I could use the pictures I took in the studio to turn them into something more……. creative !¬† Here is an example
