My recent posts have been pretty full on and I thanks everyone for putting up with my rants. Ok it is important to me and hopefully to others and we must save our Kimberley region. However you lot come here to see new photos I have taken so here you go.
Ok it isn’t a landscape but a nice portrait I think. You would already know Sian and Marnie from my previous posts. This one is a bit of a challenge as the girls wanted to put a new image of Sian over the old and combine two separate images to look like one. It was a bit tricky but it worked out ok. They were shot against a white background and the rest was added in Photoshop. I really like the colour in this. Hope the girls like it too.

Last portrait for this week. Going to post a landscape soon promise. The girls looked great in this pic but because it is a bit smiley I didn’t think it worked with a serious gritty background. Thought this almost B&W idea worked well.

This is the the younger sister Sian. The girls told me how they loved the Cores, doesn’t every bloke!!! I think they have a bright future ahead of them. Remember to give them a call if you are in need of some soothing background music. Sian is also in a jazz band I believe, if your into a bit of that. Alternatively if you want something to end a party real quick you can get Michaels band, “Hitting Grandmas with sticks”. As the name suggests you will want to put yourself out of your own misery!! I must say they sounded a lot better when I was a member. My searing guitar riffs, akin to a Steve Vai speed solo were pretty amazing!

These are a couple of pics of my niece who was kind enough to pose for me so I could check out some different lighting setups for my new portrait venture. We shot these this afternoon in a tilt panel industrial unit. I find using the walls as a backdrop helps add texture to the image. When your a teenager you want to look cool not all smiley and nice. You want to look dark, gritty and angry, well some of them do. I was a pretty happy teenager! But it was the 80’s and the darkest thing in those days was having huge mullets kept up with lots of hairspray!
Shot on the Phase One 645DF with the Schnieder 80mm f/2.8 and the P65+ back. The quality is quite extraordinary as you would expect.

This is the sort of portraits I want to get into. Nothing too glossy and nice, more gritty, dark and interesting. If you want to be photographed in this way let me know and I’ll rip you through a price list……………. actually don’t know what to charge yet but will probably ask my good mate Tony Hewitt.
I like the idea of the photo being an art piece that you would hang on the wall not a little 5×7 you put into an album and never look at again. I want it to be interesting and don’t want to end up hating doing it because of creative restrictions. No smiling, no cuddling, no looking lovingly into each others eyes. I want none of that. If you need that sort of a photograph I’m not your guy.
