perks of shooting for Curly Flat vineyard

This week I’m shooting for Curly Flat vineyard, another tricky job with all that reflecting glass, but someone’s gotta do it! In my opinion one of the best chardonnay’s around.

I was getting my lighting ready for a bento box shoot for the lovely restaurant Red Spice Road in Melbourne and used the props to practise, the images that I had gotten really struck me for their simple beauty. Hope you agree?

A friend gave me this old chair which I love, so it just had to be photographed.

mums coffee set

My mum has been giving me as birthday and christmas presents over the last couple of years her beautiful china and glassware which I’m thrilled about. This particular set is hand painted by Carlton Ware, called Rouge Royale. Its in such good nick with just a few of the white dots fallen off, due to it not being used much at all over its 50 years.

I had a lot of fun in my studio taking these images after watching a creativeLive workshop of commercial Photographer Jeremy Cowart called Experimental Portraiture. He is amazing with his creativity and interesting ideas of making photographic images in the commercial world.

This particular technique that I used was to shoot the image with my Canon Digital through the view finder of my Bronica medium format film camera, giving the image a feel of film, note the third image with the Bronica focusing lines which I removed in post production.
You also have the ability to add to the image by placing anything on the focusing screen that you want, ie maiden hair fern leaves.

I just love the look and feel of these images, and the creativeLive team are just so fantastic with the photographers and artists that they present, which are available for purchase to watch the live shows.
Highly recommended by me, check them out on creativelive.com.
