Behind The Scenes...
A Garage Shoot...
Last week I had exactly two hours to spare
before collecting the kids from school.
The weather was fantastic and Jon's little TR4
was out of the garage, so I decided to invade
and put together a make-shift studio!
Nothing was planned-just bits and pieces I had lying
around and a quick trawl to the back of the neighbour's garden
(as usual) for the fern...
The bench, lamp and plant all came from the kitchen.
The distilling jar was £2.50 from the charity shop.
Jon painted a spare piece of MDF with blackboard paint for the kids-
they haven't had a chance to use it yet!
One of our 1970's (I think) charity shop chairs, vintage Sanderson cushion
and retro tangerine trim phone!
I bought this jacket last year and wear it most of the time-
it looked very at home hung on the garage wall.
Washi tape and fern.
Charity shop books, Grandad Gordon's Pentax.
The dried flower on the right can be seen in it's original
form from my earlier post-the first shot.
Practicing with blurry backgrounds-a christmas decoration
on top of the radio and the window behind.
The dried rose will feature in a later post...
One of the vintage postcards from Dad's loft box,
which I originally featured here.
The postcard in the middle actually has an old grape stalk
that I found on the ground outside-
the kids no longer bat an eye-lid when I
start picking up rubbish to photograph.
Needless to say, I had to clear out before Jon got back from work-
it is the only part of the house not overtaken
with my props...
It made a great little studio though, so next time the sun's out
I may try out a few more ideas just for fun.
Hope you like them-a few extra
shots made it to Instagram, which has become a bit of a testing
ground for shots before they make the blog!
