Ladies in pants on a clergyman I hear you gasp . . . . On an Abbott no less! . . . In fact an Abbot FV433 105mm Self Propelled Gun. Now thats not something you see everyday, well if it is I’m in the wrong job!
HeyHo! Back to the blog. I have been an Uber busy bunny of late, with exams for boring business related stuff and hI’ve not been able to get as much of that old photomatography malarky in as I would have liked. So sat here this morn, all the admin and boring stuff completed but any plans for gittin out and about with Mr Nikon foiled by lots of wet stuff, it must be rain as the drought has been lifted . . . . I say lifted, more floated, due to the new rainy season that seems to have inserted its self between spring and autumn. HoHum! So I have delved back into the archives and spent some time processing, and I’ve had loads of fun messing about with portraiture this morning.
Got stuck into some un edited RAWs from a shoot that I previously posted about, Orthochromatic SteamPunkery and Wobbling in the Wind . Slightly harsher processing boot works well I think. That was a great fun shoot, must get some more of that in. Ive got some ideas bubbling around, just need to get organised. Here’s one to be getting on with, my friends being odd again, bless em! Back soon :oD
Noticed that the fields of oilseed were all gittin nice and bright yellow, so I thought to myself, what would compliment a field of bright yellow flowers? I know I thought, My mate Mustang Sals bright red hair! So I said to Sal, “Hey Sal, can I borrow yer hair?” And bless she said I could, but only if she came along to make sure it was ok. I had no problem with that cos she loves to dress up and makes a perfect “frontdrop” to a field of flowers.
Well now this here April has been livin up to its habit of lots of unpredictable showers. One minute its sunshine and t-shirts and then in the blink of an eye its tryin to wash you down the street, or rattle your brains with hail. The one upside is some quite spectacular cloudage all over the place, and the morning we went out looking for a location to have us a little photo shoot that nice man in charge of interesting clouds didn’t let us down. Sal had donned a sort of Gypsy Steampunk get up which was pretty funky, and we had sun (intermittently), we had interesting clouds, we had red hair and we had fields of bright yellow oilseed. GET IN 🙂
We found an excellent location, a track crossroads surrounded by flowering fields on the brow of a hill. I found a ditch, ( regular readers of my blog will know that I have a tendency to fall over/into/under/on top of things) and when I had recovered, realised that it was an excellent vantage for some low angle fun photomatography stuff. And so off we jolly well went. The light kept constantly changing so I was using lots of fill flash to try and keep up. It was loadsa fun and full of sillyness, and we had a great time. Sal isn’t a model, but she’s up for a larf! Some of the best shots were when I got her to yell obscenities at the top of her voice, good job twas in the middle of nowhere, may have offended a passing duck, but HeyHo there you Go 😀
Here’s a few of first the to be processed. Got loads and loads more to be gettin on with, lots of experimenting to do, Thinkin Mono, thinkin textures, thinkin funkyness! Still it keeps me off of the streets!
