IMAGE OF THE MONTH
BETWEEN THE BRIDGES
This composite image was conceived with the help of Robert Farrow who supplied the Isis Wings and model Ayla at her home studio in Ipswich.
A really simple lighting set up of one 24" Soft box and a Silver Reflector and taking a variety of images to create the composition I was looking for.
I used Photoshop to resize the images, altering the opacity, and using layers play around with the composition until I was happy with it.
Another image that has done well for me in club competitions.
Grayson Perry's, A House For Essex really is something straight out of Hansel & Gretel. It is situated at Wrabness which is just a few miles from Harwich, Essex.
For this image I used a infra red filter to slow things right down and add some movement to the windswept tree and grass. The infra red effect adds a surreal quality to this most unusual building.
It has done rather well for me as I won an award for it in a competition for images taken in Essex and is also my best seller. It never fails to invoke conversation when I am at fairs and exhibitions.
