Each New Year whilst most people are snuggled up with their loved ones a few brave souls who work in the AV/ production arena brave the cold night and huddle around screens to bring the festivities to life. This year I was working with an amazing team from across the country unique events, mcl, CT to name a few to do just that in the only place to be for New Year - Edinburgh!
I was vision mixing for one of the live stages and above is a pic of my view for the night!
Its not all bad though, I got to vision mix some amazing bands and reverend and the makers were AMAZING!
So a couple of weeks ago I got the privilege to run some great photographers for the new festival in Dundee called Carnival 56 and this took quite alot of my time and so i didn't get to shoot as much as I would have liked to but I was lucky enough to be allowed on stage for Rudimentals headline set and I thought it would be a good time to crack out the hassy and here are some of the pics:
Its safe to say it was alot of fun using the hassy!!!!
I've now had my Hasselblad for 6 months and I thought I would write up a few observations about it. To start - I have pretty much my whole life wanted a Hasselblad I would say I do have mild GAS (gear acquisition syndrom) in the lightest most un-serious way! having said that i did just clear out my collection of totally broken unusable cameras (about 15) which i really didn't want to throw away but couldn't be bothered to fix as they were pretty much in an horrific state! Thats not including the 40 something actual working cameras I have but anyway...
So I obviously want the Hasselblad h6d but didnt have £35k to spend so I ended up getting the h4d 40 with an 80m lens and 2 batteries within the budget I had.
There are many reasons why I wanted a Hasselblad but the main one was the fact that you get a medium format look from a medium format camera and its impossible to replicate that with a dslr and I had a lot of misses with my film hassy so was keen to look at the digital…
so a few weeks ago I had a free day and I wanted to see how many models I could shoot in a day. The reasoning behind this is because im well into planning a new book and I want to create alot of images for the book but I want to do it in quite a precise way. And so I enlisted the help of an epic team - these guys: @ingridperegrina_makeup @laurenadessimua @kim_boyd_mua @jennaclaytonmua @leona.provence @ellie_mccallumm @katmacmellon @ionacrawford
And we shot 17 models in one day took over 4000 images and I spent quite a long time editing as a result! But here are a few of the images! Hit up my instagram to see loads more!!! :
