Ive been meaning to get these up for a while, so here are a few of my faves. A very big thank you to Glen and Susan for looking so beautiful and being so much fun (sorry it didn’t rain Glen, but it wasn’t that painful was it?) Susan transformed and dyed her wedding dress for this, one very talented and creative girl, and such a good idea to do with your wedding dress’s ladies. Lighting used is my handy dandy broncolor move pack, and in mentioning that, I would also like to thank Dimitra Sis for assisting, on this rather windy afternoon.May your photographic dreams and adventures be everything and more that you have ever dreamed of (when you finish high school). For all of those interested in an anniversary shoot, my no. is 0435 939 944. 🙂

In the arm chair

I have been a little hesitant to blog this picture, but I had such an urge to produce it, that it is a shame for it to just sit in my archives. It is inspired from one of Pablo Picasso’s very early paintings, Olga in the arm chair, dated 1917. As i worked so much last year with a 1900-1920’s story, I also made the most of the outfits in studio. Anyway, after visiting the Pablo Picasso exhibition, this painting was one of my favourites. It appears unfinished, which in my opinion just enhances his work even more with the contrast of colours on the background. Thank you to my model Sophia and HAMUA Linda Thi.

The Trousseau

The Trousseau

The outfit of a bride, to wear on the eve of her wedding, for her loved one.

In fact, in the early 1900’s many women would spend many hours hand embroidering a special outfit to wear on the night of their wedding. Many people believe that there are many trousseau’s today, because so many men did not return from WW1 and there fore the dresses were kept unused.

I took this photo last year at Vaucluse House. It is part of a series of images that form “An Australian Love Story 1900-1920′. It was quite a complex series and i really needed more time to pull it off, how ever,the series was submitted for my Diploma of digital imaging studies. The room is shot in three parts and merged in photoshop.
