Old Leigh.

Taken using Impossible film PX 680 cool black and white. I love the black and white film. I love the detail you can pick up in it, rather then colour, when you can get a little distracted by the vibrance of the image, rather then the moment.
The PX 680 cool black and white gives great images. The down side is the colours shift in the first month of the image being taken. The way to prevent this is to use a draw age kit, AKA a sealable air tight plastic bag and silicon. This technic works well and prevents the image turning sepia tones. 
Just remember to make sure the bag is sealed if you take the photos out other wise the below happens. This is trial and error, experimenting and trying new things, thats what photography is all about.

Skulls and books and candles and roses.

I hate staging photos (says the visual merchandiser and set dresser)
Photos should be natural, they should capture a moment. posing portraits don't really show a person as they are.

Body Painting

I had a day off and while tidying up I found my set of Grimas face paint, so I decided to do some painting. Blues Purples and Turquoise. 
A little bit of painting on a raining day never went a miss.

The Snow Queen 2000

These are the final sketches for the set of The Snow Queen, which I painted when I was in collage for the high school 
(all designs finalised by the head of art)
Looking back at them now after 14years they look, well a little shit. As well as it gives me loads of ideas of how they could be improved.

We used 9 flats to create the back drop of this stage. 
Five on the main stage to create the Snow Queen's palace, which is only reviled in Act II.
Two flats creating Grandma's house on the Down Stage Right.
Two on stage left, one mid-stage right and one down stage right. this was to create a junk yard for the Old troll.
Bin Bags full of rubbish paper form around the school was was to create the look of a junk yard, then in Act II they are covered in white sheets to represent piles of snow.

Jean Paul Gaultier

This is just one of those random sketches I done waisting time before a show back in 2005.
Got a whole load of them, a lot of them are just scribbles, but some are not that bad.
