This shoot was from the other week. I messaged Beth one of the Hip hop artists to do a photoshoot for an hour or so somewhere. We decided to meet up and go to the top of the hills so that the Cheltenham landscape was in the distance and my job was to get creative with the camera. I got her to sit in the boot of her car and just engage with the camera, we got some great shots.
Now then the choice of camera determines the visual perspective of the image, for example, using a 35mm camera which is taken with the camera held up to my eye, this creates a perspective in the moment in which the subject is looking into the photographers eyes, they are engaging with the photographer as well as the camera. Now if I used a camera from the hip such as a Bronica SQ then the perspective changes, the subject now sees the camera as tool to be used to communicate to the world. The subject is no longer looking into the photographers eyes but engaging with the camera completely.
