One of the things i like to shoot is emotion, and messages of motive. I was given a challenge by a talented canadian photographer called Spencer Warren. Spencer is still developing his skills and he is coming along way from where he started. (but this blog is about me – lol) Anyway, the challenge was to show someone popping out with flash, while fanning their hair with a picture frame, there had to be a picture in the frame.
It’s an interesting shoot because i wanted to tie in the meaning of the picture to the subject. I decided to ask Clare to do this shoot with me as her passion for Christ can be used in the shoot. Thus i came up with Clare fanning her hair with a photo of Christ. – Thus the title a BIG FAN!
Clair is a brilliant singer in the Worship team at my church. 🙂
For the shoot we used a large empty shed on the church grounds, The youth group play indoor soccer there, so the space was just awesome. We used 2 flashes, one direct front, and one directly behind. we also used a yellow flood light centre above. We cheated with the fan effect, we had to use at first a hair dryer underneath the frame, and then a large industrial fan. There was no way we could fan that picture frame fast enough to get the blowing hair effect.
Anyway, here are the images, hope you like them, all comments are welcome.
