Happy Bokeh Wednesday HBW

Bokeh the art of the reduced depth of field. Bokeh on wikipedia.

Took these two shoots on Boulevard and corner of Chomley street. There is a restored Victorian fountain. I drove down there a few weeks ago and have been waiting for the light to be right to return and get some shots. Just processing the HDR shots and will upload tomorrow.

Halloween Apples

Have been wanting to do a shot like this for some time.

Glowing apple

The shot was set up with a single Canon 430exii. Using a Strobie flash adapter to a foam core board, a used toilet roll was then taped to this. The apple was scoped out and face carved on the surface. The flash was set to full power and trigger with a cactus trigger. Black backround is a gardening weed retainer. I would not use this again because of the texture. Think i would use black foam board.

Final shot is with 430EXii on camera full auto bounced with stofen diffuser. Edited in Lightroom, to bring up details.

Weekend Millionaires Promo Shoot

Had the pleasure to do a band promo shoot this weekend. They are a local 3 piece band called Weekend Millionaires. The band is made of Daniel White on drums, Dan Beasty on bass guitar, and Lee Green on lead vocals and guitar. This is the first time I have worked with them on a one-to-one basis. I have taken shoots of them playing live (flickr sets), they have used some of these on their MySpace page. They are currently working on and recording new material.

The name of the band comes from a northern phrase coined by miners and trawler men who would work hard all week and then spend their wages at the weekend and live like millionaires.

The band are playing to gigs this coming week. Details can be found at MySpace.

Looking for photo shoot locations

Had a trip around Hull a few weeks ago to look for photo shoot locations. Have not had time to edit and upload the shots until today. The first shoot is for a local band for who need some promo shots doing. Just hope the weather is better than the last few days. Rain, wind and cold. Autumn is defiantly here.
