Deltic – Image of the Month – June 2016

This is my portrait of The Deltic Engine Driver at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway Diesel Gala Weekend, it’s a weekend full of characters and trainspotter types rubbing shoulders with holiday makers! The Deltic was the main east coast intercity engine for twenty years before the High Speed Trains (HST)  replaced it in the 1980’s.  I wanted to capture his intensity, most of the time he wore a smiley face for all the tourist snappers, but with a little patience I captured him in with an intense mood and great lighting -I’m really chuffed with his portrait. Enjoy, Harry.

Secret Garden – Image of the Month – September 2013

This image is from a recent fashion shoot along the theme of ‘The Secret Garden”. We were shooting in glorious direct sunlight for two days. You’d think that would be good but actually you can have too much sunlight when it comes to photography. Assistant Steve had his work cut out with shading and reflecting the sun. Thanks Steve, Harry.

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.
