Playing a Character
Short post today. I have been in Bendigo all day photographing the unpacking of all the entries for the Australian Sheep and Wool Show which is on in Bendigo this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I thought it would be interesting to go up and see what happens with it all and tomorrow I am going back to photograph the judging, which should be interesting.
So today I am going to show you another couple of the photos from the session with Lara. I had hoped to have finished them, but I have one more I want to do, so I thought today I would just show you a couple of them.
Lara was wearing the new cloak I have purchased and the an old second hand case I found in a little second hand store. I liked the way she was just sitting there and waiting, which is what I called the image. I put it on Facebook and a couple of people said it reminded them of Amelia waiting for the Doctor in Dr Who.
I do love this one, the intensity in her eyes, the way she looks straight at you. I tried some new things processing it and I really like the effect, so I might have to do that again with close ups.
As I said, short today. I expect that tomorrow there won’t be a post, as I don’t know what time I will get home and then tomorrow night I will be meeting with a potential client for the portraits, which I am really excited about. It is going to be a great experience to photograph someone who may not want exactly what I want.
On Thursday I am hoping that I can finish that last image of Lara, then I will post the ones you haven’t seen yet and do a gallery of all the images of her.
PS, I am so happy with how yesterday’s post was received and I know Liana has been really happy with everyone going to see her work, so thank you for doing that.
