Freckly Shoulders

If you’ve followed me enough on any of the outlets I use to talk about photography, you’ll have noticed I’m trying to understand shooting with off-camera flash. I think the light in this photo is well balanced enough, but it doesn’t look anything special. I’ve been beating myself up lately, laying in my bed with my laptop when I should be sleeping, looking at photos the strobist masters have shot, and wondering how it looks so amazing when mine look so ordinary. Hah.

 
 

Bax-Street Blog: Street Style

We’re back with the next entry in our Bax Street Blog, where we stop people in the street with an interesting style and take a picture. We took to the West End of Glasgow this time, which, ultimately, wasn’t the greatest idea I’ve ever had with how quiet it was on a Tuesday lunchtime. Still, I’m always so surprised by how friendly some of the girls we stop are, even if they decline to have their picture taken.

Over the next few weeks we will be taking to Edinburgh and seeing what the fashion is like there.

 
 

“A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered the front door, the host said ‘I love your pictures – they’re wonderful; you must have a fantastic camera.’ He said nothing until dinner was finished, then: ‘That was a wonderful dinner; you must have a terrific stove.’

I love this quote, because you would not believe how often people are quick to tell you their photos aren’t very good as they “just have a Nikon D80”. Whatevs!

 
 

Indie: Week One Outtake

OK! So I have started a project where I’ll be taking a photograph of my dog, Indie, every week. The problem is, she’s so photogenic I end up with more than one shot, so I figured I’d post the outtakes on my blog and the real deal on my Flickr. Then when it’s all wrapped up, I’ll have the whole set published on my portfolio. Sheesh!

 
 

Glasgow Characters

These are some of the characters I came across in Glasgow today, which was very busy because Brad Pitt is filming his latest movie in George Square. Blah blah, if you’re from Glasgow you’ll actually be sick of hearing about it. If you’re inGlasgow you can’t help but gravitate towards the set, which has seen George Square convert into Philadelphia. I dunno, it’s interesting for us Brits to see the funny traffic lights and big, American trucks. We’re easily amused.

 
 

Lookbook

A lookbook is a collection of photographs compiled to show off a model, a photographer, a style, or a clothing line. It is an especially popular term with “fashion bloggers” and is even the name of a website: (Lookbook.nu). — Wikipedia

Leopard print shoes, Topshop trousers, and a dress from Cult that I’m masquerading as a vest top. Oh, and silly glasses.

 
 

Felix and Oscar

Felix and Oscar is one of many cute and quirky shops in the West End of Glasgow. I didn’t catch the name of the owner, but when he was chatting to my sister I took his picture. Oh, and I totally bought a cook book from this shop! (I can’t cook.)

 
 

Bax-Street Blog: Street Style

My sister and I have been wanting to collaborate on something for a while, marrying my love of photography with Carolyn’s eye for fashion. This is the first in our street style blog, which we’ve named Bax-Street Blog (our surname is Baxter, how witty are we?). We’ll be mainly taking to the streets of Glasgow where we’ll photograph some of the styles that capture our attention.

Glasgow is a stylish city, but the difference in fashion from the City Centre and West End is palpable. Our first outing saw us on one of Glasgow’s busiest streets for shopping, Buchanan Street, right in the heart of the city. Tomorrow we’ll be spending an hour or so in the West End of Glasgow. Feedback appreciated!

 
 

Theo!

I think this is the cutest little guy I’ve ever met. Even when he was tired after a long day and had a grumpy phase… still cute! The best part of photographing kids is that they don’t ham it up for the camera in the same way adults do. We’re self conscious; aware of how our hair looks or if we’re showing our good side. So yeah, this really satisfied my love of candid shooting, and I can totally see myself volunteering to babysit in the future o_O

 
 

Laurence Deveney

Yesterday I met up with Laurence Deveneny for a brief coffee at the The Hidden Lane Tearoom, which seems to be becoming a regular haunt of mine. I met him when he depped for the drummer in the funk band at my friend’s wedding. An alternate shot is on my Flickr.
