Over the weekend I visited my friend and fellow photographer Neil Creek for his house warming party in his new home in Emerald. Emerald is on the further outskirts of Melbourne, taking roughly about an hour to get there if you are leaving from the city. I played behind the scenes photographer and assistant for the photo shoot which he and Annie had planned earlier. I don’t know if I have mentioned this in earlier postings but Neil Creek is my go to photographer when it comes to lighting and photography in general. He has published a series of books explaining the in’s and out’s of photography and besides publishing books is an amazing photographer with years of experience. You can check his site out here at www.neilcreek.com
After helping out Neil he returned the favor by helping me shoot Annie with a few extra lights and some talcum powder for added effect. Unfortunately both of us didn’t spend as much time shooting as we usually do since the weather started to turn bad and we had a pretty full on day before.
If you’d like to know how some of the shots were achieved you can visit Neil’s site here where he’s given a full tutorial on how he set up the lights and shows his process of post production. Also please visit Annie’s site on her blog as well called Archadian Skies
