Had a great shoot yesterday with Katherine Hesketh – a fantastic model who lives locally to me.
We did loads of portraits in my home studio as well as a brief location shoot and some really cool editorial images, which I’m editing at the moment.
As soon as they’re all edited I will upload them to my website at www.carlbeebee.com but for now I’m off on my holiday (or vacation if you’re reading from the States) for a week! Hopefully the Sun will stay out and I’ll return with lots of new photographs!
The image above is from a new project I’m working on. It doesn’t yet have a title but I’m hoping to end up with 15 images that all have a “cinematic” feel to them. To help this I’m only intending on using the natural light available for each photograph. Hopefully I’ll be able to upload more on here very soon…
On a side note I just want to mention (and recommend) Custom SLR – they have sent me some real cool gear including the most comfortable and functional camera strap I’ve ever used. I really do urge all photographers – amateur and professional – to check out their products here.
You can see a couple of their products in the photo below.
Thanks for reading/looking.
I don’t often use ‘Instagram’ anymore. I don’t really have anything against it I just generally prefer to build Lightroom Presets that I think suit individual photographs.
Having said that, I took the photograph above a couple of days ago on my iPhone and tried a few different presets, but I couldn’t get it how I wanted. I got frustrated and bored so decided to whack it into Instagram.
As it turned out I really love the look of it with it’s current filter so I was pleasantly surprised… Maybe I should give Instagram a little more thought in the future…
For me, photography has always been about story telling – not necessarily obvious – but story telling none the less.
For some time I had wanted to create a short series of work that included a business man, and I wanted it to push the connotations of sanity, happiness and depression.
My intention for the work was, at first glimpse to look like an end, but the story is very much one of a beginning. The images depict a business man finally free from office constraints – he is happy, stress free and fulfilled – it is a story of a new beginning. The beginning of a free individual.
