Debi and I planned this shot and it came out just as we hoped :) Intense and water bound in clothes.

Abbey in the pool again - the 105mm Sigma macro is a superb portrait lens although does give dilemma of where to crop limbs :) mainly don't crop at a bendy bit (elbow, wrist, etc). Making the cropped focal length look good as well as the composition as well as getting the lights positioned was challenging and fun - if anything I missed the right hand arm hitting the corner of frame but something to be cognisant of next time.
Pool Shoot. A square format edit - went for frame within a frame of Abbey's arms around her face.

Dinner gown in the pool - not quite a trash the dress scenario but turned out a good image- Debi and I planned this particular set of shots and preparation worked well on this occasion. (Well we both think at any rate).
Another shot of Abbey in the pool, trying out different lighting paid off I think - the speed light grid nicely accentuating Abbey - may need to look into softening shadows with them next time.
Debi in the pool enjoying the water :) A picture of innocence.

Industrial photoshoot at the weekend in a steel fabrication factory In Cambridge - this is Bethany Kay.
first portrait I've edited in a while and although the mechanics of photoshop were still in my mind the specific techniques had left me- quick recap and relearn later and think I'm back to where I was lol
Trying a combination of edits on this one - original pic taken of my eye in OGGL, then taken into TangledFX for the fibrous look, then taken through Snapseed for the black and white conversion. Love he way that zoomed out it looks like my eye but when zoomed in you definitely see the fibrous weirdness.
Still not overly liking my face in images but thought this one was ok lol - eyes open this time too :) #Oggl #tinto1884 #dc
Combination with other effects really get the best from these actions :) #FuryAction
Following on from yesterday's edit of Fenton I thought I'd try and see if my silver efex pro 2 recipe works on male portraits - this image did require some further tweaks in localised areas but was pretty much just the recipe applied and edit in Lightroom on top done in 15 minutes. Another one in square format which is becoming easier to compose for or crop to as I gain experience.
I have been looking for a way to get the hazy look similar to the "Greater than Gatsby" photoshop actions but at a much lower price and in Lightroom because I don't always want to take every picture into photoshop. On Black Friday I received an email about the 2015 version of the improve photography preset steal and jumped in - luckily there's a set of presets in there called "matte" which have the very look I am after :) - revisiting the Hylands house shoot I set about this image of Fenton Brett (an up and coming young model who attended our ELWEMP group shoot). I like the result as it's pretty much exactly how I pictured it before beginning. (For once).
