This has been a little project that I started with the children when on holidays.It describes summer stuff, and will complete a little family book Ive been working on. I think the backdrop still needs some work. I’ll see how time goes, now that I’m back on the study track. The kids are straight out of the pool, but I think I’ll try shooting earlier in the day next time too. Can’t believe how sore my fingers are from drawing.
This is a self-portrait product shoot, which was was quite difficult to shoot. I think I rolled off about 80 frames, but I couldn’t place myself in the right position….too close to the lens, out of the frame, or my hair was messy. The camera was manually focused on the product and the timer was set to take the image in 30 seconds. That meant that I needed to get up, press the shutter and get back into position within 30 seconds. The image was shot in my shed which has a tin roof, no air-conditioning, and needless to say, hot. During the shoot my feet cramped up on both sides, so I have really funny photos of me in excruciating pain. For the next week I felt bruised all the way down one side after rolling on the cement floor to reach the camera shutter.
