Vicki Blatchley shoot

I was prompted by a question from a friend who asked if I had any images from my VIcki Blatchley shoot as he had just met her. An oversight on my part was highlighted when I popped on my blog to search for the images we had shot together; blank, nothing, nada. So to redress this balance here is a blast of model Vicki Blatchley.

Samantha Alexandra shoot

I recently did a shoot with model Samantha Alexandra. It was a split shoot between my print portfolio content for John Tisbury Photography and my member’s website www.Erotica-Babes.com Below are some of the shots taken for my print catalogue which I and Samantha have already posted on various internet photography and modelling websites but thought you might like to see them here too.

Update: 10th Feb 2015

I’ve edited a few more shots from this shoot with Samantha so I’ve added them below to keep them all in the same post.

Samantha had a shot in her portfolio that another photographer has done, it was a copy of one of my poses. So I re-did it for her.

Some new erotic photography shots of model Gemma Lou that I’ve just edited. The first image is Gemma posing on a high chair, shot low and at an angle seems to draw you into her face. Her fishnet stockings give a great look to her legs and the raised leg over the arm of the chair helps to balance the shot. In the second image, Gemma is in her bunny girl outfit, with a riding crop resting on the floor. Subtle framing just brings in the bunny tail and a quirky bend to one of the ears gives a better look to the bunny ears. Shot from low camera position helps to accentuate Gemma’s shape, her full natural boobs hang down with the light wrapping round to emphasise her cleavage and their shape and size.

Exhibition preparation

Exhibition preparation day

I spent almost all of Sunday 5th Oct preparing for the start of the Return of Temptation exhibition at The Strand gallery. The purpose of this post is to list some of the tasks that I have done in order to get ready.

Return of Temptation exhibition, The Strand Gallery, London, October 7-12

Return of Temptation exhibition, The Strand Gallery, London, October 7-12

The day started with me bringing all the framed artwork downstairs from the storage room. I lined it all up around the walls in the kitchen to get an idea on the size and number of images I had. I stacked them into landscape and portrait orientation piles to get an idea on the mix of formats. Then I looked for the widest and tallest prints as they will be the most difficult to place in a hanging scheme. Next step was to check how much gallery wall space I’d paid for, this was just as well as I had 3 metres in my mind, whereas it was actually 2.75 metres. The only thing I didn’t know was the height of the walls, this information was not available on the booking form or on the website. I guessed at normal ceiling height which is 2.4 metres. I measured out 2.75 metres on our dining room table and then started to lay the prints out to get an idea of what could go where. This is just a rough layout and gives me an idea of how many prints will fit along the run and how to mix them up between landscape and portrait and print size. Often you have an odd split between portrait and landscape orientated images which means you don’t end up with a symmetrical hanging plan. This was the case with mine.

Deciding on the mix

Once I’d decided on the best mix of images I ended up with four rows of prints. This is an iterative process and some prints look better together and look more pleasing. I ended up with a couple of alternative hanging plans by the end of this task.

Amber likes to help out on these occasions. I’m very vary in case she decides to play chase and run behind the pictures looking for mice.

Doing the labels and pricing is one of the final jobs.

After a few goes at getting the layouts by a process of trial and error it’s a final check that the chosen images fit along the wall length.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Working out the hanging points and gaps between the prints

Working out the hanging points and gaps between the prints

After this then there’s the task of working out where the centre of each print will hang and how much gap there will be between each print. As each print is different in width you need to ensure they all have the same gap between them otherwise it looks messy and uneven. This takes a while to calculate and took me about an hour. Although it’s a bit of a ball ache to do, I do find it worth doing as it saves me having to work it out on the day when I arrive at the gallery. All being well, once I’ve unloaded on the day I can set about putting up the work as I know the order of each print and exactly where I need to place my picture hooks to hang the work. Tomorrow, Monday 6th October, is hanging day, so I’m hoping all my planning has gone well – I’ll let you know.
