Anna Quinn

Here’s one of those shots that was a case of being in the right place at the right time..

Last night I went to a little social soirée at EyeBox studio in Bristol.  It’s a great little studio run by Paul Claridge and well worth a visit if you’re in town.  Anyway, in between drinking tea, eating pizza and talking cameras with other like-minded folks, I grabbed a quick five minutes of Anna’s time and took a couple of dozen snaps.  After a couple of quick exposure tests this was literally the first frame I shot, and as such I’m pretty happy with the result.

I’d love to say it was all down to my photographic genius, but really, with a model like Anna you’re already 90% of the way there.  Having got this in five minutes, imagine what we could do on a full shoot..

Oops, rookie mistake!

I had a quick trip out yesterday to take a few snaps with my friend Phil.  I’d suggested a quick trip down to the Severn bridge as there’s generally something pleasing to be had there.  I’ve been a bit under the weather for a few days and I clearly wasn’t firing on all cylinders as when I got home I realised that horror of horrors, I’d been shooting with me camera on medium size, highly compressed jpegs..  Oops, how embarassing, especially as I’m always preaching the benefit of shooting in RAW mode..  It just so happened that last week I’d shot a weekend event where I was only taking snaps that I didn’t expect to ecit, so of course I was happy shooting in jpeg.  First time ever..

Still, it seems I just about got away with it – click the header image above and let me know if you agree :-)
