Portraits: Lavinia

This session technically was not planned. My circle of friends hardly ever get photographed by me unless we are socialising and I want to change that. So when Lavinia reached out to me to go for a screening of “Kati Kati” at South London Gallery, I took this an opportunity to break that cycle. So after we watched the film and made our way home, we stopped off at Westminster area and then walked towards the South Bank area of London to take a few shots.

If there is anything I learnt from this experience, I AM NOT A FAN OF THE COLD. Lavinia, on the other hand, was a trooper, but we didn’t last long. The cold got the better of us.

Anyway, here are some the images I managed to conjure up in between frozen fingers and a very leaky eye.

Portraits: Richard + Cynthia + Inaya

My first attempt in ‘Baby Bump’ photography I did a while back and I have to say, pretty please with the results. Now that I have ‘more time’ on my hands, I do hope I get to do more of these.

My guinea pigs are dear friends of mine, Richard and Cynthia, shot in their local park one sunny summer afternoon.

All I can say is, it was a fun shoot all done in natural light. As long as Cynthia was comfortable, Richard and I were too.

Here is to Baby Inaya…who will be turning 4 this year. Well, how time flies!

5 Favourites from My Second Film Roll in 2017

My Canon AE-1

Well, what can I say, I am on a film roll.

Get it….film roll…on a roll…

Oh, forget it if you don’t get it. I am not one for telling jokes. 😂

Anyways, I took more pictures on my second Kodak ColorPlus 200 film soon after I finished the first one. Click here if you missed my post on the first roll of film.

It literally took me most of February to finish shooting with it. My kids and the weather played a big part in it, unlike the first film which took me two months.

I won’t bore you loads of words this time, as I am not feeling very well this week. I just wanted to keep the weekly post consistency in this blog going.

Photographs were taken between 01/02/2017 and 21/02/2017 with a Canon AE-1 using Kodak ColorPlus 200 film. The film was processed on 22/02/2017. Digitally scanned using the Epson Perfection V750 Pro on 01/03/2017. Editing in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Without much further ado…

Which is your favourite from this selection?
