Our college class were supposed to go to London today, but we got to the train station and every train to London was cancelled! Just our luck..

It turned out okay in the end though – i walked back to college and used the studio for the afternoon! I made the most of what i had, which was one dress, a piece of gold material i found in the cupboard, and a lot of hair..

DSC_0057jnbkmotionEditing my interpretation of Bailey’s Vogue cover of Jean Shrimpton, 1963! Used my sister as a model again and somehow managed to take the picture while wafting a massive piece of card at her and trying not to knock the light over.

DSC_0007watercolourhGuess what image i had to recreate for my college project today?!

Yep it was Erwin Blumenfeld’s Jan 1950 Vogue cover. I love that image.

Luckily my best friend Rosie was in college though so she stepped in last moment! (Thankyou!) I did her make up and then some test shots on my D90 (one of which is above). And then, eventually, i shot a roll of film on the Mamiya. Can’t wait to get it developed!

Oh, and my set up was the same as Rankin used in his ‘Seven Photographs that changed fashion’ (minus Heidi Klum) –

Did a shoot with my little sister Janine today! It had a gothic theme and involved burning umbrellas (and accidently setting the floor on fire). Thanks go to Emily (older sister) for stamping out the flames. I’ve actually had the idea for this shoot in my head for a while but i only just found the perfect dress (charity shop £12.99!). I’ll post up the fire pictures once i’ve edited them – for now i’ll leave you with this portrait..
