Emma Chatel – With Wrong Truth

Photographer Emma Chatel wanted to do something photographically creative, so I suggested a photoshoot in they style of my PoPA project, where we talk over tea, and see what subjects keep re-occuring, and create a set of photos around that. So, after a quick trip to Poundland for props, we found some grassland as our location.

Emma is also going to edit the photos, and I’ll link to her blog, when it is written.

Studio Day: Drench

So, Isoelegant said to me, “Let’s do a shoot with water”. Maybe she was thinking of next to a river or lake. I thought, let’s throw buckets of water over each other. We set up in the studio, with a complicated mechanism involving squirrels & rope to release the water. After a bit, we decided to simplified things by getting Adrian involved.

It was only after a few goes that Adrian had the idea to warm up the water…

When The Serious Work Is Done: Quixotic.

Isoelegant & I decided to have a day in a Leicester photography studio, playing with lights. We took it in turns to be the photographer & model.  Isoelegant bought a load of props and did 95 costume changes. I brought a cup & some cheese.

As with the previous ‘When The Serious Work Is Done‘, we are both doing our own photo edits & blog.

Isoelegant’s blog is here, where she explains the fun we had way better than I do.

When The Serious Work Is Done: Geisha

When The Serious Work Is Done is a series of blogs triggered by those discussions in the pub, of what would be a fun shoot. It’s by two photographers let off the leash, to go and play, then edit the photos, in their own style.

In this one,  talented wedding photographer and bundle of energy  Isoelegant used the opportunity to wear her geisha dress that she’d picked up in Japan. We then trekked a few miles up Dovedale hunting for locations. Isoelegant forged rivers, in full costume,  got cold and wet. I just pressed the shutter. Then we had an ice cream. It was great.

Here’s Isoelegant’s blog.
