Welcome followers and visitors to my blog and another update in my diary. Here are some more images from my last photoshoot. I continue to develop ideas with regard to symbolism, narratives and still life.

In this series of still life images I have introduced some new objects to see how this might change the narrative. I also wanted to see the effect that the light  might have on different surfaces.

(FL 23.00mm, Exp. 1/13sec, f/4.0, IS) 3200)

I also experimented with the orientation of the compositional structure, the use of solid and transparent materials as well as the concept of magnification of certain areas by other objects within each still life set up.

Low Key lighting was once again adopted. I find this kind of ambient lighting adds subtlety and a sense of heightened drama to the final outcome. I particularly like the juxtaposition of light and dark, the flow of light through and around objects and use of varying textures.

As the photo shoot progressed many different ideas were developed. I have also toyed with the use of monochrome and the effect and impact that it might have or not have on narrative creation.

These images are the products of the second part of the photo shoot. On this occasion each image is untitled.
