Free Fashion Show | West Quay | Event Photography Southampton | London catwalk

During the 9th - 10th of the October 2010, the 'Free Fashion Weekend' took place in Southampton West Quay. Rose Forde, an international fashion and celebrity stylist, selected the most striking trends for autumn/winter 2010, inspired by the catwalks of London, Paris and New York. All the clothes were delivered by high street retailers from West Quay like French Connection, Coast, GAP, Levis, John Lewis Southampton, Phase Eight, Sunglass Hut, NEXT, Warehouse, Jane Norman, Karen Millen, ZARA, Oasis, New Look and others. Being there was a different experience for me, having to react quickly to what was going on; I was also unable to direct the subjects in the way I have been used to which was challenging but produced shots that I wouldn't have thought to construct.

Keeping my style, I decided not to use the flashgun. I must admit, it was quite a big challenge, as the light from halogens randomly gave me different colour temperatures. For all shoots, I've used my Nikon D80 and my new baby Nikkor 35mm f1.8 lens. I didn't use any zoom lens, so there was no way that those pictures were going to be different than those you've all seen or are used to from these kinds of fashion shows. I hope you like it, because the world would be boring if everything looked predictable and similar. Enjoy:

Glamour Portrait of a Day | Southampton | Photography

Hello again after a bit of a break. This is my first proposal for the 'Glamour Portrait of a Day.' My wife Kasia was the model, and this is her first time as a guest on my blog. Love you xx.

The picture was taken in the morning with nice/soft daylight coming through the window in our living room using my new baby 35mm f1.8 lens from Nikkor. It was just before we went for our weekly shopping, so there is no special hairstyle or makeup. It is just her, naturally, and that is how I love to take photographs. I love portrait photography, I especially enjoy fashion shoots with female subjects.

I hope you like the portrait and just to let you know, my next post is going to be about 'Free Fashion Weekend', which took place in Southampton's West Quay shopping centre. Stay tuned! Enjoy:
