SALA Open Studio - Crackerjack Photographic Studios

Thought I'd do a quick post about Fridays Open Studio day during which I did a live glamour and art shoot from start to finish during the day and people could wander in and watch...I know from past experience myself that you can always pick up something from seeing how other people shoot and its really good if it ends up being something that can save time. One of Yervants editing techniques that he shared has literally saved me hundreds of hours in editing but sometimes its as simple as realising that you are actually doing the same thing in a different way. So I hope it made sense to the people that came along and for me it was quite enjoyable working with a group as we often are working on our own in this industry. Thanks heaps to Helen and Anya who modelled and to Hannah Boettcher for her makeup skills and assistance during a fairly full on day....Also thanks to Kim for doing the running around :) Naturally enough, we ran a bit behind schedule so I am posting some of the finished results (some of which you can also find on our facebook page HERE ...but for those who don't use facebook (and for my journal records) here are a few....PS although the exhibition officially closed on the 15th I will be keeping the prints up for the rest of August  and next week the opening hours will be back to the Wed, Thurs, Friday 10 till 3 as per normal with the rest of the week by appointment...
