Rhian Benson L’oreal Photoshoot

The Lovely Rhian Benson was getting her hair done at the L’oreal headquarters and I went along to snap up the behind the scenes photos

Here is a particularly nice image.


White wall and flash gun !!

No Box or strobes


I got my hair did



Not always B&W in fact its more grey

Beautiful Girl + B&W + Naked = Art

Whenever you take picures of a model you need to aware of her dimensons and how they best suit the camera.

It also needs to be 45mins per shoot.

1/80  1.8  200Iso ,  50mm Lens , Ettl Flash Bounce

The Swan in Notting Hill Carnival

Notting Hill Carnival on a really nice sunny afternoon, and a great day for shooting.

I had just got my polariser filter so i was testing it in the really bright light of the day.

ISO 100/ 1/160 /85mm/ f 8.0

Most moving objects stop dead at 1/250 unless they are already moving really really and i mean really fast  so it was easy to use 1/160 for this image ans still have enough depth of field for the clarity.

Bhav – Not so air Guitar

I loved playing with the blacks on this  picture I just increased them in this image until there was no visible background left.

It almost feels like it was shot in a studio but only the natural lighting was used.

17mm/ Iso 320/ 1/60 / f 4.0  .

Stage Perspective

I got a pretty good angle on the stage with this shot I was told by the security that i wasn’t allowed to take pictures but sometimes you need to break the rules and i was glad i did, I got the shot.

It give s good view of the stage and an excellent depth of field view crowd, artists, lights and screen.

17mm / f4.0/ Iso 1600/ 1/50

I had to have the steadiest hand ever to take the shot as my ISO was pushed to the limit but it was worth it

Fashion in the Dark

This was a pretty difficult day or evening of shooting as the lighting guy was crazy. I had this on a particularly high iso level and a reasonably high shutter speed.

Party Hard – Gradient

Another from the party hard promo pictures, I used a very    simple gradient to give some drama to the picture then added a    light source.
