I was lucky enough to be accepted into the Fargo Village family in Coventry where i was able to put up an exhibition of my existing work! Very exciting! Also it was a lot of hard work! but it was definitely worth it, so i have been spending a lot of my spare time there over the last two months and the shop owners and residents are all fantastic! and are all in the same position as i am … just starting out so i have decided to document these amazing people in a very fun way! And luckily enough every single one of them is on board for the photos!! They love the idea and they are all massively supportive!!! I have never been around so many encouraging and lovely people in one place!!! So between 7th – 10th May i will be spending the weekend doing my shoots with the girls and guys there and then spending my evenings getting them edited ready for printing!! All alongside my written work to support it!!
I started my Flickr site a long time ago … But it’s only been with in the last year that I’ve really started to use it … Hopefully there’s something there for everyone so far feel free to follow me! https://www.flickr.com/photos/stephstar/ Thanks!
I was really happy with this and enjoyed editing it once i had decided what to do with it.
I also really enjoyed this workshop, Claire (http://www.claireseville.co.uk) was brilliant and showed us all some brilliant tip whilst in the studio, and she also showed us how to edit our studio images in quite a simple but very effective way, i loved my images that came from this shoot, although I’m yet to edit them all i managed to edit two of my favourites which you can see here.
We were lucky to have Talia White (http://www.taliawhitephotography.com) come in to college and show us some techniques in the studio and we got to photograph a professional model, which was brilliant, so much better than photographing fellow students, as the model knew what to do and how to pose.
I really felt so much more confident after this shoot (although my images are not perfect, they were the best studio images id taken i feel)
