It’s only fair that someone facing the camera all day gets a triptych.
Thanks Chloe, I kinda had to pick this one with the hair.

The crazy thing is I swear I didn’t do anything in post to her eyes other than a general B&W conversion (a la Mark). Great light & Blue / green eyes given an Orthochromatic style B&W conversion makes for some captivating peepers.
Plus a little peek of the shots from the Leica which got itself a good workout alongside the Canon today –

Things are cranking up a little around these parts with me being a busy bee. Portfolio tweaking, meetings all over the place, some interesting leads and a good number of shoots in the planning. Just how I like it.
So if things go quiet for a week or so you know why.
Final of an initial six triptychs shot for The Blind Swine (although there are another few in the pipeline already), the soon to be sleaziest (in a good way) place to hang your hat whilst indulging in the finest of eating and drinking pleasure in York.
So the secret to becoming a full on awesome chef is out, all you need is three hands. Mike has indeed gone one step above us all on the evolutionary ladder.
Oh yeah, the boots, they would be GOLD.

So other than the above words it’s been a little quiet from me of late, it’s been a busy old time plus I’m on one of those half year review timeouts from it all. You know the ones, I lock myself up inside my own head and have a million conversations with myself. I usually head out on the bike alone into the country lanes just for some time away, no distractions, just me, myself and my thoughts. It’s been a strange old rollercoaster of a year so far, huge ups and some pretty major downs. I’ve had to bail on a couple of really great ideas simply due to my lack of time and then at other times I’ve been scratching around for inspiration with all the time in the world. I’ve dropped some balls along the way but also pulled off some pretty grand last minute jobs. Time to set out the plan for the next 6 months, figure out where my path is right now and quit getting distracted from my main aims for 2012.
Anyway back to the photography, another from the Blind Swine tomorrow and i’ve been particularly mean in holding back this one until last as it’s of the guy who actually got me in on this shoot. Ha! sucker. Honestly though it’s worth waiting for if you’ve ever wondered what the untold secret of top flight chefs is . . . . . . . .
