Promo Shoot : Jason Wing

Hello and I hope that this post reaches you well?

I had the pleasure of working with very talented British actor, Jason Wing not so long ago.

Jason is an actor / screenwriter from South West London.  His father was Cherokee and his mother British.  He  trained at the Drama Centre via a Sir Anthony Hopkins scholarship. Jason has had both film and theatre roles as well as cameos in feature films.  His screenwriting credits include The Ballad Of Mulla And Mullins, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010 [Jason’s website]

Jason asked me to help him refresh his actors’ portfolio and as part of his new portfolio we were going to be working mainly with 35mm film as well as some digital images.

For the digital images we used my back garden as the intention was to have pictures with a black background.  The technique I used to achieve this look can be found on Glyn Dewis’ Youtube Channel by clicking here

The film shots were taken close by at Kensal Green Cemetery.  I love this place – with so much history as well as parts where you can take great pictures.

For the shoot I used the following equipment –

Olympus OM2n SLR + 50mm f1.8

Nikon D3s

50mm f1.4

85mm f1.8

The film for the OM2n was Kodak Portra 400 and Kodak BW400CN.  I love the Portra as so far it has behaved differently for each shoot I have used it for.

Archiving and Clearing out – An image from Kensal Green Cemetery

Hello and I hope that this e-mail finds you all well?

Over the last couple of weeks I have been slowly going through my hard drives and clearing out images that I do not require.

Whilst going through them I came across one I took at the local cemetery at Kensal Green. It is an image of a pathway leading to the main building in the centre and the catacombs.  I have had information which has been corrobrated that Freddie Murcury is buried there despite what is publicly stated.  The rumour is that he was buried under a different name so that his grave would not become a shrine like those of Jim Morrisson et al.

I have not done much to this image aside from adjust the contrast and the basic edits in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Let me know what you think of the image in the comments below.  In the meantime I must dash as I have a number of lessons which I am writing up to start recording over the next week.  These are slowly going to be uploaded onto the blog and youtube.

Until next time
