Poland Trip Picture

Olga & Carlos

These 2 were my old flat mates for about a year, they moved out when Olga became pregnant.

She asked me about doing some photos and I got this idea in my head that was something between a portrait and a still life, I wanted to include a lot of objects that were symbolic and we used my sofa and the coffee table for the arrangement. The photo posted here does not have any of this and is in B&W, I was not so satisfied with the result of the original idea but will revisit them again and see if I can make of them something I prefer.

I was a little unsure about this one at first, but several comments from other people convinced me that it’s actually not a bad shot, this does include some critical comments as well; sometimes having certain people not like something is proof positive that it has merit!

Agata Restaurant

These pictures were for a restaurant that was creating a new website.

I got a call from a girl I know called Freddie, who is a designer and also runs a Meetup group for such people, I sometimes go along as it is a very relaxed social night out, rather than the typical networking events, which always feel a bit false and not unlike how I imagine  speed dating nights might be!

I basically had to get shots of the restaurant and also a party they were hosting.

Shooting a place like this is always going to be a tad awkward if its busy and of course the day I arrived this was the case; I wanted to do HDR postproduction, so ideally needed to use a tripod…
