B286 – INSTAGRAM AND THE WORLD OF INSTA-PHOTOS

Yesterday was Sunday and on Sunday I met up was out and about taking photos for someone who had put a post out looking for a photographer to collaborate with. It was literally the first time Ive ever said yes to something like this and to be honest it was actually pretty fun, the “instagramer” I met up with was this girl whos just moved to london from Brodeaux in France. and as Im really trying to shoot more people and portrait style photos it was perfect.

Trying to choose a location in London has to be one of the funniest parts about a shoot, I

love brainstorming locations and trying to find the location that best suites an idea of style, my choice of location yesterday was going to be the Barbican Centre, Aline wanted to shoot somewhere with tall building and an urban feel and in really the Barbican is perfect for that. It also has quite a lot of water and I like to shoot near water. At the moment my think with portrait photos is that they look a million times better if you incorporate an element into them like water or fire. I would love to include fire into a photo, so please anyone ready this that might be able to breath fire, please let me know!!!

I think from now on I’m going to try and concentrate this blog to photographing people as much as possible. from shop owners to dancers, I really want to cover the whole spectrum of people. theres like 6 million people in London, so if I cant find people to photograph, I must be doing something wrong.

Also sorry this post is last, I got a bit carried away editing the photos from yesterday. it took a bit longer than I expected. Im now not too sure what my plan is going to be today, I definetly think I should pick up my camera and head out for a few hours, maybe Ill have a shower and think up some cool ideas.

Heres some photos from yesterday, I hope you like them.

B205 – THEY WERE THROWING PIES IN EACH OTHERS FACES!!

Today we were back on location working, so it was pretty hard for me to take photos, I could seem to get a good stream of photos on the go, mainly because I was just inside all day, and I didn’t wake up early enough to go a take some photos before work, my call time was 0730am this morning, its now 23:22 in the evening and I found out a few hours ago about a part over in times square, which I’ve had to be an adult about and not go. I wish my 18 year old self was here so I would just go balls to the wall and head down there, but now Ive got these things called responsibilities and they really seem to get in my way.

to still make sure I show you some good photos today, Ive decided to use some from my adventure around New York yesterday, I was going to save them for when I get back to London and don’t have anything to post but I kind of think why should you some rubbish photos I took today when I have these cool ones right next to me.

yesterday while I was walking around I saw something Ive never seen before, which is surprising because I cant think of a reason why I wouldn’t of done this when I was younger, its something that I would have thought I would of done and thats throwing pies / whipped cream in each others faces. I have no explanation why they decided that on a rainy Tuesday morning in New York they would organise a small side street pie throwing event, but it made for a good photo so I cant complain.

For some reason the more time I spend in New York the more I love this city and the people in it. I did have a little accident today though, I completely forgot what car park I parked the car in, mean that after the shoot we had to walk around a few block before we found the right one, and it turns out I parked in the car park I was meant too, I just didn’t remember. Im only telling you about this, so the Amanda and Libby don’t think i just right about all the good moments, I include my mistakes too.

Heres my photos from yesterday, i will do my best to up the anti tomorrow and will take some good photos through out the day. here they are, enjoy.
