Builder’s Hands

Hi folks and I hope that this post finds you well?

Here is an image which I would like to share with you that I took of my builder’s hands.  As you can see these are hard working hands!

I will be recording a short walk through on how I processed this image.  Until then please feel free to leave your comments below.


Thanks for stopping by!

The wife

Hi and I hope that this post finds you all well?

Just a quick post – here is an image I wanted to share of the gorgeous Mrs O getting ready before we set out to a wedding the other week

This was a very simple shot taken on my Nikon D700, 50mm lens and at f1.4.  A very simple conversion to black and white in LR.

Our next blog post will feature a couple of images from my headshot portfolio builders that I am currently doing.

Thanks for swinging by!

Portraits on Film

Hello and I hope that you are all well?  Last week I shared some images from a shoot I did with actor Mel Mills [click here], where we went into a studio and shot images for his promotional portfolio.  Afterwards, we went to a restaurant and continued the shoot, albeit on film.  I just wanted to share some of those images with you, here.

The first two images were shot on Lomography ISO800 film, whereas images three and four were taken on Rollei ISO400, and the final two were on Ilford HP4 ISO400.  All images were taken using my Olympus OM2n, whereas the Rollei images were shot through my Olympus Trip 35.

Please leave your thoughts and tell me what you think.

Thanks for coming by!

Family Portraits

Now as I mentioned a few posts ago, I have been reprimanded by memsaab for not taking enough images of the children.  So withouth further ado, here is a shot of my eldest deeply engrossed in ‘my’ (he seems to think that it is his!) Apple iPad.

This was taken at ISO 640, 1/30th, f5 using my trusted 50mm lens.

I edited it in Photoshop using the lab colour mode edit, and just did a simple black and white conversion.
