Nocturnus Magazine

I hope everyone has had a lovely bank holiday weekend. In my last post, my aim was to get all my editing done. Did I manage that? Not quite, but I did get the bulk of it finished, and the rest can wait until after my holiday this week.

I did also shoot a new Easter self shoot quickly Friday, where I got to try out my newly purchased lighting modifier, a Optical Snoot. I have never used one of these before, so I went a bit simple with it for starters, and I am looking forward to experimenting with it further, and properly on a model shoot! Look below for a peek!

I am now having a slight break from shooting, due to starting more DIY & renovations at home. Plus, the amount of editing I have had lately has exhausted me. I am a full time retoucher, so it sometimes feels like it is never ending (as much as I love & enjoy doing it) but I do need to make myself have a break sometimes.

Last week, I had another front cover get released. This was from my shoot with Miss Lauren C. She wanted to use my coffin which I have in my studio, which acts as both shelving for my light stands, and batteries, and a prop! I wanted to have a bit of a play with colours in this set, and I think these chosen ones complimented the theme really well.

Even though I will be quiet on the shoot front, I am certainly not quiet on the work I have to share. I just finished editing my shoot with Elixir Black, and I will be looking to get some of those published, and I then have my duo shoot with her & Konstantine to finish. Plus, a lot of unseen shots I have yet to share, and reels to create. So, I will be aiming to keep this blog updated as much as possible.
