This is a quick test shot for the article I am working on, I hung the camera up on a clothes rail, put some dark paper behind it, with my softbox lighting - then did a bit of processing in Photoshop. The lettering is my handwriting, using a Pentel brushpen, scanned in and inverted.
I quite like this look - I just need to figure out what shot to use and process the large version.
I have been working on an article for .net magazine for the ‘Beyond Pixels’ section of the magazine, showcasing my car boot sale finds.
I have written the article and for the last couple of days I have been working on a little film for the iPad version of the magazine - so I have been shooting some of my collection as stills to use for a stop-motion animation. It’s also highlighted exactly how many things I own - this shows about 10% of my Polaroid collection (and the camera side of things is much, much bigger).
I will post some of the footage or the film when I am finished, and after the magazine has been produced.
I have still got so many photos from the flea markets in Paris to post on the blog, for a vintage enthusiast like me, they are like being in heaven.
If I had unlimited wealth, I think I would buy an apartment in Paris, just so that I could furnish it from the flea markets. This vintage barbers chair was at the Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen.
