The Concept of Expression: Patrick Connolly

Kicking off 2019 with a bang, the next subject I have photographed for the photography series, this photo-set being the first for 2019, is my close friend, Patrick Connolly.

As these photos were taken on New Year’s Eve given I was at a New Year’s Eve Party to ring in 2019, these photos were taken in low-light conditions, and with surprising results, these photos came out better than I expected.

A fraction of some of these photographs were normal headshots, while some of the photographs were off-guard facial expressions Patrick made that he probably wouldn’t necessarily make if this involved him looking directly at the camera. It’s often the off-guard photographs that are the best photos.

I hand-picked three of the photos from this photo-set to upload to Instagram beforehand and they’ve gone down a storm after I changed them to black and white with surprising results!

I’m pleased with how these photos turned out and I’m quite amazed that the low-lighting with the flash on compensated the photos in such a way that they stand out really well.

If there’s any improvements I could make, please let me know as your feedback will really help me to improve on the photo-sets I produce in the future.

Welcome to January! Happy New Year! 2019 is Here!

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2019 on Mother Nature, everyone!

2019 kicked off with a bang thanks to the New Year’s Fireworks going off in London, meanwhile, I partied the night away and have been enjoying myself as I celebrated ringing in 2019 with my friends, and as you can imagine, 2019 is going to be action-packed with so much content as I’ll be publishing more frequently now I have more quality time on my hands and I’m also going to be photographing more models for my mental health photography series, The Concept of Expression.

I’m so excited to keep publishing content and I cannot wait to show you what I’ve got planned for this year!

Until then, Happy New Year & Welcome to 2019 on Mother Nature!
