2019.2

Sticking to my resolution of ordered filing cabinet dipping for updates we find these two young ladies. To my knowledge the first model didn’t work with duffers like me so it came as a surprise when she accepted my offer. We got along okay, well I don’t think I upset her, and I got some nice snaps. The second model was one of my favourites and she visited the Chateau de Vaughan several times. Beautiful and a pleasure to photograph but I did have to tell her off now and again for her fashion model scowl.

This Is The End

Well I’m going to admit defeat. Finding suitable talent is nigh near impossible and I just can’t be arsed to keep trying. Because I’ve nothing better to do this website will drift on in some sort of erratic fashion depending on what I stumble across while pruning the archives but fresh faced newbies will be absent. C’est la vie.

Full Stop

My photography has ground to a halt. Too hot, bad back, no money and most importantly no models. I’m thinking of posting a pointless sarcastic casting call to see if I have more success than with the more sensible informative ones I normally dish out. The problem with this is going to be not only letting down gently the totally unsuitable models but answering all the awkward questions I’m bound to get.

Testing Testing 1 2 3

A month or so back I had the opportunity to try out some new on camera fill-in flash settings both outdoors and indoors. I’m not sure if they worked out better than previous attempts but 2 obvious failings plague me whatever set-up I use. The first is positioning the model to prevent her from squinting in the bright sunlight. I usually end up moving into the shade which can then negate the need for fill-in flash which defeats the object of the exercise I suppose. The second problem is how to avoid the harsh shadows when working with on camera flash indoors. I’ve found getting the balance between ambient light and fill-in flash far more miss than hit. I really should spend more time on this but I lack the patience.
