The world (outside my bedroom) is flat...
Flat & level finally…now we can start really making some noise. Its nice to enjoy the view while it lasts as it is soon to become a hive of activity for the new development we really need…
Due to finish in 2015…ahhh then i can finally have a lie in…

its cool to see it finished however brief as the space will change beyond recognition right before our eyes (Bond street massive)…and ears :(
remember how they used to look (there’s a rude- ish bit coming up…but funny as hell)

#randomactofkoolness- Mr Positive…

A chance encounter outside my front door, meeting Peter was certainaly a rewarding experince.  Obviously it was the odd looking longboard that caught my eye, then as he approached I realised how tall he was so it kind of made sense & too be fair anything smallr would look silly.  We got talking in the lift & within 20 mins started shooting outside the crib…

The thing that struck me most was how positive & spirited he was.  Listening, really listening & engaging…It turned out that he had just moved to Chelmsford with his girlfriend kate, who is into photography & may come & help out at figmentmedia with random acts….

I asked him to send in a few words about himself & what longboarding means to him & anything else he feels like sharing. 

As soon as he does you’ll be the first to know…

A little about my process
Here’s a quick look at some of my process. Lighting and post production are key to producing the final image.  In post i try to retain as much realism and detail whilst still stamping my “look” on the image.  Getting rid of any obvious distractions so the viewer can be drawn in to the eye, the focal point of this picture.  Also, I like enhance certain features that give the face character such as wrinkles and stubble in this case.  Jimmy was a real sport during our two hour shoot. We explored many different looks and expressions  from moody to playful.  Its always more fun when you have a subject that is prepared to work with you.
If you have any questions about this post or any other, don’t hesitate to ask…also if you have any pictures you want to share feel free to do so and say a little something about your process.

Cheers,

Seun

Untitled…
This is actually my first go at a little compositing of the background.  I had wanted a little more texture than just a plain black background so I found some textures from a wall and added it to give a little more atmosphere and drama…

Smoking with Lee…

Its been a little while my last post so I thought I go through and have look at some things we shot a couple of months ago that I’m still getting through.  Here we used a combination of the beauty dish, strip lights and a reflector to try give a contrasty look whilst opening up the shadows….post done in photoshop cs5 and Nik.
