Artificial Sun Flare Effect – Image of the Month – August 2013

These images are just being published by my client and I’m really proud of the flash light we used to create sun flare in this image. In the dead of winter back in January, sunlight was scarce and snow wasn’t. So my assistant used a boom arm to hold into shot a small flash head pointing directly into the lens. The effect was great and was had a lot of fun working out the best amount of power and position of the light to gain the best results. People often use software to create this effect but It’s so much nicer getting it in the camera and the clients gets excited just looking at the back of the camera. Enjoy, H.

I Believe In Monsters

It’s great to promote your mates creative work on that interweb thing! My best friend and actor Adam Lewis (pictured left below), has just done a short film. He plays an unsavoury character –  that’s fairly normal for him, both on and off the screen!!!!

Keep an eye out for it – the image links to the trailer on youtube. Cheers H.

Goodbye Zafira

It’s the last days work for my lovely Zafira today. She’s been with me from new, done 115,000 miles and has served me well for seven and a half years. I thought it fitting to do a Hipstamatic iPhone snap as a final goodbye. She’s on the moors above Cross Hills near Skipton, we had one last drive together on a sun blessed summers evening. Goodbye.
