The Photography Show at the NEC Birmingham starts this weekend. Anyone going? When I was given free tickets I was a regular but having to pay puts me off mainly because I’m not in the market for any new equipment. Nowadays I’m of the view that when it comes to shooting pretty girls all cameras are much of a muchness and in many cases your mobile phone is plenty good enough if you only upload to the web.
When choosing the models for this post I was drawn to the similarities of the hair colouring and style. Okay you think I’ve lost it! But come on admit it, there is a likeness. That’s where it ends though. One was a very popular internet model with an obvious unique selling point, her outstanding tits. The other was a pretty girl next door type who’s content you don’t offer see.
While dipping into the archive and wondering about what to post I began to glance at the snaps I have taken with my Sony NEX-5N. I bought this as a sort of carry anywhere snapshooter but it hardly gets used because like most people I find my iPhone more convenient. When I do use the Sony I don’t tend to bother with the settings so the results can be a bit hit and miss, or if you want to be generous, interesting.
The first set were shot at some crazy high ISO using just the light from a window at the other side of the room. The second are an outside mix of snaps taken in diffused and direct sunlight by, you guessed it, the canal. For the final wet set we move back indoors using natural light but this time the model is standing closer to the window so the exposure settings are a bit more civilised.
