I am a photographer from East Hertfordshire/Essex/London. I started this blog to share some of my photography ideas and thinking. This blog is a mixture of my photography, thinking behind some photo shoots and some equipment reviews. The reviews are just my user experience and nothing more. My passion is portraits, editorial and fashion photography.
If you have any project that need a photographer, please get in touch. My website is at www.yattang.net
Recently, most of the models I shot with have tattoos. This was not a coincident as I was actively seeking models with tattoos to shoot with. When I saw Ivy (PS 217836) on Purestorm, I asked to shoot with her. The style I wanted to shoot was a cross between glamour and Bizarre Magazine. It was shot in a very small apartment studio in Dulwich. Within the small space, I was able to shoot a number of sets.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Ivy and recommend her to any photographer. Communication was good before the shoot. It was a cold day in London. With little clothes on it must be cold, but she did not complaint at all. We had a good chat through out the shoot. It was very educational. I got some really good images from the shoot. I must say, they have more of a glamour look than Bizarre Magazine style. Perhaps shooting against a plain background would help as most Bizarre images than to have a plain background. Also, the expression of the model should have more attitude. Not Ivy's fault at all, as I was telling her what to do. Next time, it will be different. That would be something to try another time. Here are a few photos from this shoot. The first two photos are my favorites from the shoot.
