The girl in the red beret

This is my absolute favourite from yesterday. I asked her to look at the camera without smiling and she did this beforehand in order to compose herself. Brilliant 🙂

Comfort Zone Obliterated

Today I went into town and forced myself to ask a whole heap of people if I could take their portrait. A kind of terrifying experience – but a really good one – would totally recommend it. I’d say about 95% of people that I asked said yes – and of the ones that said no there was only one that was a little odd. (She was older, didn’t speak Englith and I think she thought I was trying to sell her something!) Ok – so here are some of my favourites …

Portrait Break Thursday 3

Tottenham Court Road and Neal’s Yard

Thought I’d give my old face a break for the day – back tomorrow – and I’ve just acquired a red wig. In the meantime here is a little bit of town.

How to illuminate a bobble …

Oh my goodness gracious – this self portrait thing is no joke – especially when you only have two hands and a very small brain. The only way I could get any light on the top of my head was by shinning iphone torch at my hat with one hand and then ussing remote control with the other. Quite sure this is how all the greats do it … (Yesterday’s headscarf was today’s background.)

Looking serious with a scarf on my head

Another catchy title. Wanted something black and white , and also wanted to use the 50mm again as it feels like it’s been an age …

Yellow – minus the mellow.

Thought I should actually try and take some portraits. UnfortunAtely, the only face that I could find … was my own. Wanted to mess about with full on direct flash – almost mug shot style.
