Macro shot using 70-300mm, the fake blood is real and from a great shop called 'Screen face' in london - although owing to the overlays your can't really see it.

A while back when working in a bar I was aksed if I was a lizard by some David Icke fanatic.

Jess got her hair cut - so obviously I was enlisted to update her Headshot portfolio.

Josephine's fiance Jon works at a very plush gym, from which we acquired a lovely trampoline. I did catch some strange looks whilst trying to circumnavigate central london/the tube.

The shots were composed in the park behind my block of flats using said trampoline.

I did get some shots of some random scally kids, whom were all up in our face innit, cant wait to edit those

Electrptherapy VI - Wade


Electrptherapy VI - Wade, originally uploaded by Harry Sewell.

Another shot from the most recent Electrotherapy.

This was taken on a wide angle lens, and the effect is all in camera; just added a bit of contrast in photoshop.

I was using a 10mm wide angle lens, flash to freeze Wade's face; CTO diffuser on a 430EX in ETTL mode and a 1/2 second exposure to catch the light streaks, the dry ice was just pure fluke.

This was a shot from the sixth dose of the bi-monthly ElectroTherapy; A charity oriented electro fest whereby all profit made on the night goes to ‘Take Heart India’

The flash didn’t fire on this but I do really like this capture.
