One of my goals this year is to do more styled shoots in the comfort of my home, using minimal props found around the house, and fresh produce from local shops. At the moment, Pinterest is my best friend, giving me lots of inspiration for any type of shoot or aesthetic. Using natural light in my house and garden, I then work on styling shoots which compliment the season, as well as the subject.
Here are some of the shots I have created in the month of January:
I’m now looking forward to planning more shoots in the coming months, especially when the sun is out for longer, and the season changes to spring. -Georgina
2020 was an interesting year for everyone, many people want to forget about it, while others want to look back at the year.
I finished university and started to focus more on the business alongside other employment. Not being able to photograph people for a while was strange, so I began to look at different ways of remote working. I began to photograph more products in different locations as I would with people. I also started to make prints and other photo gifts which I sold at craft fairs and online. I did manage to do a few portrait shoots when restrictions were eased, which I’m grateful for.
I’ve really enjoyed shooting more products and using different lighting techniques to capture them in different ways, I have been doing weekly shoots featuring various food and drink as well as other subjects to continue to challenge myself.
I was asked by 1784 Gin to take some photos of their product for their social media. I wanted to capture the bottle in a natural setting, while staying local to the pub: The Dog and Duck in Bognor Regis
It was a great experience being able to photograph for a local gin company in Bognor Regis, and use local areas which would be recognised.
I was asked by Sonar Magazine to take some photos at Cabana in Southampton for a recent article. I took photos of the restaurant layout as well as the products and all of the bright colours. I was lucky to be able to try some of the food that I photographed which was delicious!
