Betty Banzai grunge style poster

Day 182/365 Playing with photoshop

Had a photo shoot at Sugar Mill Night Club in Hull. This is from the second shoot of the day. Model feature is Betty Banzai from Model Mayhem. I want to do a grunge type poster similar to this Dirty Grunge Poster and Simple steps to create impressive illustration. Also this list of 450+ grunge brushes helped.

Film Noir Shoot At Sugarmill Night Club

Attended a group shoot with Hull photographers and models Facebook group.  We took over Sugarmill night club for the afternoon. All models and photographers shoot for free. An entrance was charged and the money was given to cancer research. £131.80 in total was raised.

Before the shoot I had discussed with Shaz (the model below) shooting a film noir set. She was very enthusiastic and keen to offer suggestions for the shoot.

I had read on the Strobist Blogspot on using hard light for a Film Noir Effect.

A single 430exII was used. I used a cable to trigger the flash, i used this because there was other photographers working around me using similar triggers. Cable is old school but it works.

I used a Rouge flash bender as a snoot. The a reflective umbrella partially opened to give a more concentrated directional light.

Thanks to Lou Watson and Abbie Towse for organising the shoot, Sugarmill for the venue and all the models, makeup artists and fellow photographers for their help and support of a worth while charity.

Day 7/30 a song that reminds you of a certain event…

The Paddingtons: Shame about Elle.

Smile for the nice man,

smile for the camera,

smile for the nice man,

wont you do it again

Day 97/365 Day 7/30 a song that reminds you of a certain event

Taken at Hull Freedom concert 2009. The Paddingtons performing to a crowd of 20,000 local fans.

The song reminds me of the very 1st open air concert that I ever photographed. It was also the 1st time I had heard the Paddingtons perform live. They did a fantastic set, which ended in a mic stand thrown in my direction and the guitarist been dragged off stage by other band members
