Hi My Name Is Simon…
Posts have been a bit far apart of late and to be perfectly honest I have been out taking a whole heap of images, partly because its winter and cold outside.
I have just invested in a set of studio lights (Bowens Gemini 750s with batteries) and haven’t really had them out of there case since I got them 🙂 The double garage under the house is being roughly converted to a studio space and eventually I should start setting up some shoots there. I am however excited by the prospect of taking the lights out to some urbex locations to shoot some portraits but really need the weather to be a bit more settled.
I went out for the first time to shoot street yesterday and although I didn’t take any images I’m going to try and get out at least once a week.
Anyway hopefully this means a few more images to come onto the blog.
Here is a shot from a couple of months ago from Fergus as I was just starting to get bits and peices set up…

Lights Against A Darkish Sky
I really liked how this shot turned out even if it hurts my eyes since the lights are only just discernible from the sky…

Half Frame Night Pano
A 4 shot pano from a couple of weeks ago when I went out with some friends to shoot stuff at night.
I like the simplicity of creating panos this way without all the high tech stitching programs…

Ghosts In The Machine
Finally got round to finishing off a roll of film I had sitting in my Lubitel 2 TLR Camera.
Lets just say it has a problem with light leakage… It did however give some interesting images with bits burned out of them…
