Urban Portrait Shoot - Lucy and Issy

We both really enjoyed the shoot with Will. He made everything feel so relaxed and comfortable despite our nerves beforehand. Will is extremely easy to work with and produced brilliant pictures.

This was a shoot I arranged as I wanted to get out and get some new images and try some new techniques and overall, I ended up getting some of my favorite portraits to date! I had gone out before the shoot and had planned a series of locations around Bristol harbor side. I asked two freinds of mine if they would help out and model for me.

- Quick Tip -

Using Prisms or prism paper and holding it up to the lens can help give unique colors and effects to your images.

Overall, I am really really happy with the images from the shoots as I tired few techniques and tried to focus on trying new and different poses and used small sheets of prism paper to create interesting techniques.

Outdoor Urban Portrait Shoot

The shoot was a surprise for me by my friends; at first, I was nervous, but I became comfortable very quickly and got into it, which was mainly due to how friendly and welcoming Will was. We went to places that I never knew about, which as coll becuase I got to know the city more whilst doing it. The pictures turned out amazing and will is such a talented photorgapher!

This shoot was one that as arranged to be a surprise portrait shoot for a groups of girls friend as a birthday present. We arranged to meet by the harbour side and begin the shoot there. Our locations were based around the centre of Bristol and I went out before the shoot to prepare and pre plan some of the looks for the images. On the day the weather was a bit sunny which was tough to work with however we managed to find locations that took us out of the sun.The surprise went really well and overall the model was pleased with photos.

- Quick Tip

Always bring a reflector or diffuser with you on a shoot as shooting in direct sunlight is tough to work with and creates harsh highlights on the models face. have your assistant shadow the models face or if you do not have a diffuser, shoot int eh shadows!

Blue Bell Woods Portrait Shoot

This was a paid shoot I did over half term and i decided to use the woods as our location as the blue bells were in perfect season. I chose prior woods as our shooting location and arrived two hours before the shoot to scout locations for the shoot. 

I really enjoyed having my photos taken by Will. He made me feel at ease straight away with his warm and friendly approach. He made me laugh a lot and was very professional. My Mum and I are both really pleased with the results! Thank you Will. Best of luck in your path, you are very talented, polite and pleasant to work with and we enjoyed meeting you.

Outdoor Street Portrait Photoshoot

This was a shoot I did with a group of friends as I wanted to get out and find locations and shoot to get some new images whilst I had time. I had gone out a few weeks before to scout locations for the shoot but also used new places that we thought looked interesting whilst walking about.

We shot around Bristol City centre near Park Street. It was an overcast day with a bit of sun which provided us with perfect light meaning the only light modifier I had to use was a reflector to add a little extra boost in the images.

Outdoor Portrait Shoot Bristol Harbour - Anya Wheatley

 On this shoot, I wanted to get some new portraits and just get out and shoot and stay creative. I went to a few locations around the centre of Bristol and near the harbour.

- Quick Tip -

When working in working in mixed lighting condition on a shoot, meter and expose your shots for the highlights and bring back the shadows in post instead. However don't do this to much when shooting at a higher ISO's as you can introduce a lot of noise in the shadows. 

I wanted the shots to have a natural look and feel and I tried to use some of the natural warm light thatwas coming off teh sun as it set towards the end of the shoot.

Blue Bell Shoot - Leigh Woods .

Saturday 7th May 2016

Blue Bell Shoot 

This was a shoot that I had been wanting to do for a very long time now, but I had to wait for a time that blue bells were in season as they were the key point of what I would base this shoot around.

I already had a few rough ideas in my head as to what the shots would look like, but for the most part of the shoot we just walked through the woods and found locations that we thought would look good to shoot in.

We shot in Leigh Woods. I had heard and seen that there were lots of blue bells there and it wasn't too far for any of us to get there. Fortunately we got lucky with the weather, as although it had been raining all day before the shoot, it was meant to clear up and luckily, it did. I wanted to shoot in the late afternoon at about 5 o'clock so that the light would be softer. This worked very well meaning that the only light modifiers I really had to use were reflectors and a diffuser to avoid harsh shadows.
