Tea with Alice…. flash back to July 2016

Recently I was asked to contribute some images to a charity fundraiser flyer and found myself going through some I took in my early days of photography, when it really was just a hobby hobby, before I signed up to a photography degree and joined a photography club etc.

It was going through these images when I realised I hadn’t posted any of the themed photo shoot images I took with Pinup Doll Alice Oxley back in July 2016.  I had posted a blog with the portrait shots of Alice but not the more themed ones.

So, a year on, I thought now was the time to put some of these images up for you to see. The theme was a 50s style tea party and I had big plans for the shoot but when the day came it was windy and I had to abandon some of the ideas I had.  This taught me that you should ‘always’ have a plan B and expect to re-assess your plans on the day and think on the hoof.  Also not to plan anything too elaborate, keep things simple where you can if you are working solo.

That said it was a brilliant shoot, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and think it was from that moment on that I realised that this was THE hobby for me.  Here are some of the images from the shoot:

Hope you enjoy this post and have a great weekend!

Pinup Doll Alice Oxley – Afternoon Tea?

Posted in Weekly Wonderings with tags , , , , , , , , on 25 July 2016 by misselisabethuk

In addition to my photography degree assignments, I have been keen to progress my professional portfolio and start working with models, to practice my wider photography skills and to develop my own style. 

So I recently set up a shoot with a model who I found on purpleport.com. I have an interest in portrait photography but I also wanted to stretch myself to a situational set up. After looking through a fair few profiles I decided to book a 50s style model and as a result a 50s style themed shoot was born. 

I have not yet prepared the more ‘themed’ images from the shoot but wanted to share with you the 3 portraits I have worked on to date. I hope you like them:
