RB67 film portraits

I was in the studio today using the Mamiya RB67 medium format film camera. I’m a digital boy at heart but have to admit I was impressed by this hefty chunk of metal, the images it produced were fairly sharp and I think with a digital back you could get some pretty impressive results with this camera. For the portraits I used a two light setup with Beauty dish to the front above the subject and a snooted light to the rear a stop down to create the spotlight. Here are a couple of my favourite images below.  Remember to click for a bigger image Enjoy!

Some more new stuff!!

Today I have managed to find a spare 30 minutes from somewhere!!! Feels like I never have much time lately anyway, I thought I would share a few of my latest portrait shots. Have a look and let me know what you think. Most of the sports portraits were shot on a 10-22mm wide-angle lens using various light setups. The other portraits were shot on a combinations of 50-85mm lenses mainly using a clamshell light setup. Just for fun I also included a dog portrait I shot. Have a great weekend enjoy!!

New Portraits

I have finally got around to adding some of the latest portraits I have been working on. I have used gritty light set ups on most of the shots. The string football image is a conceptualised image brief for what to do in you spare time on your lunch break. I hope you enjoy the shots and any comments are welcome.

Old Edits!

After spending a few hours archiving some of my work I came across three images which were shot at the Gavin Blyth Memorial Cup. The match was between celebs from Corrie & Emmerdale. Usually with sport photography you need to capture the face of the players however I really like the one of the number 10 which if I remember rightly was Ryan Thomas. Hope you enjoy the shots I think the editing adds a lot more drama to the images!
