Black Lace And The Skeleton Project - Week 05

It had been about 10 weeks since I had last done a photoshoot, that being the Chattri shoot last year (saying it like that makes it sound longer haha). So I was extremely happy to arrange to meet up with a new model for an afternoon of shooting in central London.

On Thursday I met up with the beautiful Stephanie for a test shoot, the first of hopefully many more to come! We didn't have anything too particular planned, just an outfit and a few general location in mind. I had an idea to use strips of lace wrapped around the models neck and wrists to compliment then dress and add a little bit of something to the photos, here is a drawing from my sketch book that I did the night before:

Just as I was leaving for London it started hailing and it rained a couple of times when we were shooting but luckily we caught some rays of sun and managed to get some great photos, here are a few previews:

One of the photos was also accepted to be added on my PhotoVogue portfolio! :D You can see it here, any votes would be hugely appreciated! :)

I will be posting more stuff from this shoot once I have finished editing them, be sure to 'Like' my Facebook page for regular updates! :)

And now for week 5 of the Skeleton Project! this weeks photo is a bit strange but oh well. :D

Week 05:

Thanks for reading if you did! :P See you next week! :)

The Skeleton Project - Week 04

Hi everyone!

Already a month into the project, I think the chances of reaching the end are getting slightly higher hehe.

For this weeks photos I thought I would use the skeletons again! You might have seen them used in a few photos of mine before, like this one for example. This time instead of all standing around in a neat fashion they have been hired as dentists.

Week 04:

Thanks for looking again! See you next week! :)

The Skeleton Project - Week 03

Hello, hello, hi and hello!

Week three is upon us and it's time for a hangin'. Gather the townsfolk for this photo!

Week 03:

I took this weeks photo is the relative discomfort of not my own garden so inevitably I got lots of strange looks for performing a hanging in the local park. As you would expect, dog walkers and women with small children cant see the enjoyable side to hanging. Not to mention the ironic waste of time hanging an already dead person would be! They looked at me as though I had killed their very own children, bugger them in the face I say!

I took this photo using a Praktica TL 5B. First time I had used it too, so I was a bit nervous about whether it would even work. The film was also already in the camera when I got it, it looked like it was quite an old roll. But despite taking those two risks everything came out ok! I took quite a lot of different photos on this shoot so they might crop up in later weeks because I like quite most of them. :D

Thanks for looking! See you next week! :)
