Backstage with Nina Smith @ Nottingham Concert Hall

Last night 80’s Icon – Belinda Carlisle played at The Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham with Nina Smith as her support act. I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to go backstage and shoot some documentary photography of Nina and her ‘Man Band’ during their soundcheck and before they went on stage as well as photographing their set and then Belindas.

Here are a few images from before they took to the stage:

Evil Scarecrow Promo Photography Part 3!

Here are a few more images from my Evil Scarecrow promo shoot. The band needed some product shots to promote their merchandise and T-shirts on their website. We thought that some cheesy, white background catalogue type shots would work well so here they are!

Evil Scarecrow Promo Shots!

Today I have been in the studio photographing metal band Evil Scarecrow. It’s quite late so I’m not going to babble but I’ve just edited a couple of my favourite shots from the day so here they are!

The band are a great bunch of people and really good fun to shoot. More images to come over the next few days.

Wollaton Park – Off Camera Flash

Today I decided that my long suffering reluctant model and girlfriend (not reluctantly my girlfriend, just model!) was going to put on a pretty dress and let me take some shots of her using some off camera flash techniques at Wollaton Park in Nottingham.

After arriving at the park and realising that I had left all of my memory cards at home I left her there and went back home to get them. By the time I got back 40 minutes later I found a very cold and not best pleased reluctant model who was even less impressed that I’d left her to freeze for so long in -1 degree temperatures wearing a dress and tights. Still, being the sweetheart that she is she let me take some pictures and I think has just about forgiven me now she’s thawed out and seen the images 🙂

I’ve done a fair bit of processing of these images using textures in Photoshop to give some of them an almost watercolour like appearance. I really like the effect and will probably be using this technique again for another shoot I have coming up this month.
