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.

 
 

Friends Outside ABC

Popped along to the ABC 2 last night to catch my friend’s band play. To be honest the lighting in the venue was shite. I mean ISO 12,800 kind of shite. Anyway, Johnny And The Bomb (my friend’s band) are playing next Thursday (18th of August) in Pivo Pivo if you fancy them. They’re getting good feedback but are brand new on the scene.

 
 

Gerry Ness

If you look through my Flickr stream, 99.9% of the photos are naturally light. I woke up with an itch to shoot with my 430EXII today, probably because I’ve been on my case lately about not getting complacent / comfortable / whatever with my camera. I mean, I want to keep learning and delving out of my comfort zone. I’ve had my flash for an age, yet I rarely use it. Funnily enough, my favourite photos from today were the ones I actually shot with flash. I want to try the same again tomorrow, and the next day…

 
 

Gary At Finnieston

I woke up today itching to take a photo. Like, chicken pox kind of itchy. Hopefully I get to scratch it later today, but for now here’s a photo of Mr O’Hagan, making a return appearance on my blog. We haven’t seen one another for what felt like a long time, and he randomly turned up at my house yesterday. Oh Hai. We went for coffee and dinner. There’s another one on my Flickr.
