THAT'S AMORE...

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ I declare February LOVE, romance and beauty month. They had a kiss. An intimate moment, an expression of amorousness, a caress or touch with the lips. They got lost in their own new world, forgot we were there, just for a moment... The lights were in place, it was back to the real business. This was one of the 'unofficial' photographs, I showed them, yes, they thought they were fun, but also a bit embarrassing, however, this was not what they 'wanted', people often have a predilection when they come to a photo studio! It is EXTREMELY important to listen VERY carefully to your clients. They had come for a portrait, celebrating their engagement, that's what they went home with. I did take those images for myself anyway. THANX for ALL your comments and visits, so appreciated. Have a wonderful day, filled with love, M, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to PURCHASE (ONLY PLACE TO BUY!), visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

THE PHOTOGRAPHER... Paul

FUN in THE STUDIO… It is always best, during a studio session no matter how hot or stressful it is, to maintain a sense of humour amongst the more serious portraits. This was such a moment; where Paul made a gesture that makes us laugh whenever we see someone do this… I love his eyes, they can look naughty just like this!

THE MASK...

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ NO, not VENICE... Part of a series CRAVING COLOUR. INTENSE colour photos. Had been doing a lot of b&w in the studio. In the days of film! My eyes craved some colour... Enough? This is done on the technical camera/ Horseman.4x5 Lens: Rodenstock 180 Film: Polaroid pro 4x5 YES, sigh, gathered a lot of props over the years. THANX, M, (*_*) For more of my other work visit here: www.indigo2photography.com Please do not use this image on websites, blogs or any other media without my explicit permission. © All rights reserved

ASPECTS of WOMAN...

I know who I am, Paul knows who I am, my sons, family and friends know who I am! Many people do not know who I am, all they see is different facets of the real me. One piece of the puzzle… This is the playful aspect, only one particular ‘look’, another way in which I can be viewed by the mind. The angle here of each ‘facet’ is carefully considered, as the aim is to maximise the effect of the theatrical property. Many actors relied on props and other means of support when they were being photographed. Obviously I gathered a fair number of props over the years, so, on that day: mission over, some 'Space' left in the camera, a few more 'creative' ideas, lights still on, put on a wig a pair of outrageous shades and this is the result… The one thing that is the REAL me is the small silver camera, given to me by my best friend years ago, and that I always wear. Anybody who’s ever met me, they see this jewel, they know it’s me. Just some fun… and a different 'take' on a photographer's self-portrait, who is very serious about her work but doesn't take herself too seriously, a sense of humour helps you through everything and give you the 'good' wrinkles! LOL. I wish you all a very good time, comments,likes,faves are very much appreciated.

HAPPY DIWALI...

AB FAV 2 for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ HAPPY DIWALI I give you light... It is tomorrow, however in India, they are celebrating it already. Diwālī is the Hindu Festival of Lights. For Jains it is one of the most important festivals, and beginning of the Jain year. It is also a significant festival for the Sikh faith. Diwali is one of the most popular and eagerly awaited festivals of India. It is celebrated for 5 consecutive days in Hindu month of Ashwayuja which usually correspond to the months of October or November. Hindus, Jains and Sikhs celebrate Diwali and use the occasion to celebrate life and strengthen relationships. Typically, celebrations focus on lights and lamps, particularly traditional diyas, although electric lights have become widespread. Fireworks may also be associated with the festival in some regions. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. I brought in the garden lights ( 8 plastic tubes with LED lights inside), decided to have some fun with them in the studio again. Here I'm using 2 tubes, I tried different techniques with the studio-lights. To freeze me=washed out the lights too much. So, the old joke was always that photographers do it in the dark! Here's PROOF! A happy Diwali to All friends around the world. Magda (*_*) IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

MAGDA INDIGO...IN CAMERA!

I love the challenge, the buzz of 'complicated'... and beyond the obvious. Bring out the mirrors, the Pneu-Air shutter cable release... prepare for running and mutter the odd swear word... LOL! Here I set up the Hasselblad on a tripod, my Nikon F4 with polaroid back!(I resisted digital for a long time, till I was satisfied with the quality) On another, looking into the mat glass of the Blad, you still with me? It wasn't until the film was developed that I realised my feet were in... now I could have 'cropped', but I preferred it like this, an added touch in my view, and anchored the image, serendipity he? thank you for ALL your faves and comments, M, (* _ *) IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

SHY...

Shy: this adjective means: not forward but marked by a retiring nature, reticence, or a reserve of manner. One who is shy draws back from others, either because of a withdrawn nature or out of timidity. Something I had to fight my entire life, a lot of people are shy, especially photographers, there is a REASON WHY we are BEHIND the camera, haha? People don't know it! I am the one who has to put them 'at ease'! LOL! I have become an adept in 'concealing' it, however, it is a daily internal barrier I have to cross each time I have to go out or have to go in somewhere (especially the first time) or meet someone new, once that is done... Iím fine. I uploaded this on another site and a photographer/friend of mine wrote: ...shy? OK! Shyness is mostly attractive to others; but a pain inside. Have a wonderful day,a great w-e and thanx for your precious time, Magda (*_*) And for more of my other work or if you want to purchase, visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

STILL CRAZY... and euhh, NEW CAMERA!

... after all these years, still crazy. My Paul, yesterday surprised me with a new camera, the fabulous Nikon D7200. Always a great moment in the life of a photographer! I am over the moon, it performs beautifully. This IS how it came out. Tradition here, the first photo I take with a new machine is a portrait of my love. I only downsized it, NOTHING else, fantastic. So, my friends... from now on, you can expect even better images???

Amitabh Bachchan BOLLYWOOD'S SUPERSTAR...

Amitabh Bachchan Son of well known poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan and Teji Bachchan.. The trademark deep baritone voice, the tall, brooding persona, and intense eyes, made Amitabh Bachchan the ideal "Angry Young Man" in the 1970s, thereby changing the face of Hindi cinema. He left films in 1985 to become a Member of Parliament from Allahabad constituency as a Congress party candidate, as a favor to his family friend Rajiv Gandhi - the new Prime Minister of India. He’s been awarded all over the world with prestigious titles and medals like the Legion d’Honneur. He presided over the last ‘Bollywood Oscars’ in Dubai, that yearit was held in Yorkshire, yes he was back in town! The first Asian actor having a wax model of his likeness displayed at Madame Tussaud's in London. Was named Actor of the Millennium in a BBC News Poll ahead of such luminaries as Charlie Chaplin, Sir Lawrence Olivier and Marlon Brando. Here he’s often called the Asian Sean Connery. (For more go to Amitabh Bachchan Wikipedia). He is also the most well known Indian together with Gandhi? We photographed the great man, the 'big B' as he is called… He allowed us to take portraits of him. It is indeed the height (1, 91) and elegance, the voice and the penetrating look that leaves a lasting impression of this extremely kind and distinguished gentleman. I saw a few hairs slightly over his eye and brow, walked up to him, gently put it back in place, we smiled at each other… Have a wonderful day and thanx, M (*_*) PS: Two soft boxes and a backlight with honeycomb. I only wanted some rim or edge light, but he moved his head, hence the highlight on his check, no matter...l loved the pose and intensity, took it... it is my personal favourite. You know how for me... IT IS OFTEN ABOUT THE EMOTION MUCH MORE THAN THE THECHNICAL PROWESS!

PICASSO and THE VET...

Just look at the relationship! Pica was NEVER afraid to go to the surgeon... I'm convinced he knew he was going to get help! This is the BEST vet I have ever know! His success rate is FANTASTIC!!! He added at least 3 (quality) years to our dear Border Collie's life! It is a joy to see him at work! I've documented quite a few operations, but never any of our dog, I needed the emotional distance to be able to work well and focused. It is not enough being a photographer to do this; you also have to know about anatomy and the surgical procedure. He works FAST and efficient,he prefers to operate without gloves, he uses disinfectant on his hands constantly, for each new procedure, he used to be a vet in Africa! In the bush... Here it seems to horrify people to see him operate like this? How did the world EVER survive he? LOL... Each time I'm amazed at how intensely involved the vet gets with each individual animal.

EAST AND WEST? CAN MEET!!!!

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ EAST AND WEST? CAN MEET!!!! THE BALLAD OF EAST AND WEST. Rudyard Kipling Poems Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet, Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God's great Judgment Seat; But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth, When two strong men stand face to face, tho' they come from the ends of the earth! (Excerpt) This image means so much to me, it came about (like many good things in life) by sheer luck. We had this couple in our studio for a portrait session. She is the gentlest, sweetest lady you can imagine. Of Indian descent, born in Africa, just like her husband, they met in England, fell in love, married and after all these years, are still very much in love, there ís an ease about them and we all share a great sense of humour. She was waiting for him to join her; he was looking through the lens, talking to Paul about the whole set-up, technicalities and cameras. I sat next to her for a chat; we suddenly realised that we both wore a long skirt, a pink top! We sat in the same way, no, this is not posed!!! So I asked Paul to push the shutter. (In our book, it is not the one who pushes the shutter, but the one who has the idea, that the photo belongs to ) I treasure her as my friend, I respect her for her religion and beliefs, I admire her for her beauty, both in and out, if there were more people like her, the world would be a better place. East and West have firmly met! Have a sweet day and thanx for visiting, Magda (*_*) For more of my other work visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

HE AIN'T HEAVY... HE'S MY BROTHER!

He ain't heavy, he's my brother... She loves him to bits and is very protective of her little brother. This is completely natural, I did not ask them to do anything. When she realised I was going to take a photo, she grabbed him and held him tight, look how they cling together... beautiful. I love the emotion, an often forgotten IMPORTANT ingredient for good photography! You just hear too much about sibling rivalry and not enough about the love between them. Remember: Peace starts with a smile. I had to rework the bg, this is not done in a studio, but just with my then little new toy, the Nikon Coolpix P1 , a point and shoot.

YOUNG MODELS...

A little gauche and self concious... which is good, I see: too often too young and too brash. Not attractive.

GLOWING with PREGNANT JOY…

MARCH—> month of HOPE, beauty and joy. Obviously taken in the studio, this extremely happy young woman just exuded joy. I set the lighting so that the emphasis was on her belly, to make it glow, Hope this brings a bit of joy again, have a good day and thanx for your visit, so very much appreciated, Magda, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to purchase, visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

DO YOU REMEMBER, MAMA...

Special moments in the life of women. Most people will know or be able to imagine that towards the end of those 9 long months the tension and anticipation is rising, the baby can't come soon enough now. As a mother myself, I know what it means, all the love and the heartache, the joys and the tears, the happiness and sadness, the life long commitment, the eternal lifeline no matter what! It's not easy being a good parent, no schools except the school of life, you often only know you didn't do it quite right when it is too late! It's 10 times harder to correct! But, when you do get it right, the feeling is magic, you're proud. It's quite something! Here, a tender image, proper pure photography with the, nowadays, often forgotten important ingredient: EMOTION!

THE WAITING... MORE REFLECTIONs of ANOTHER KIND...

Who of us is mature enough for offspring before the offspring themselves arrive? The value of marriage is not that the adults produce children but that children produce adults. - Peter de Vries- American writer (1910-1993) This is one of my images that had the most attempts at being 'imitated' , they say it is the biggest compliment????????? LOL. A tender image, proper pure photography with the, nowadays, often forgotten important ingredient: EMOTION! A young mum GREAT EXPECTATIONS wanted something special. the idea came to me in the night... like most of them. I had watched her closely and noticed that this was a gesture she often made! As a mother myself, I know what it means, all the love and the heartache, the joys and the tears, the happiness and sadness, the life long commitment, the eternal lifeline no matter what! It's not easy being a good parent, no schools except the school of life, you often only know you didn't do it quite right when it is too late! It's 10 times harder to correct if at all! But you do your best, and when you do get it right, the feeling is magic, you're proud. It's a prowess! About the image, most people will know or be able to imagine that towards the end of those 9 long months the tension and anticipation is rising, the baby can't come soon enough now. She had chosen not to know the sex of the baby but was now getting curious to know, boy or girl? thanx for your visit, M, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to PURCHASE (ONLY PLACE TO BUY OUR IMAGES!), VIEW THE NEW PORTFOLIOS AND LATEST NEWS HERE on our website: www.indigo2photography.co.uk IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

QUE SERA? REFLECTION of ANOTHER KIND...

The past is history. The future is a mystery and this moment is a gift. That is why this moment is called "the present". Quote... unknown... but how TRUE! This is one of my images that had the most attempts at being 'imitated' , they say it is the biggest compliment????????? LOL. A tender image, proper pure photography with the, nowadays, often forgotten important ingredient: EMOTION! A young mum had seen this GREAT EXPECTATIONS on our website www.indigo2photography.co.uk and wanted a similar important portrait! This was what she wanted, she also did not know what gender the baby had, so que sera, sera...? Definitely a time for reflection! She was not as comfortable in front of the lens as the other mum, and it shows, but, then there were other images taken later that were 'looser', so each shoot is different, because people are different... that's what makes it all the more exciting and constantly interesting.

The GIRL and the PARROT...

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ We had the pregnant mum in the studio first, then dad came with this little angelic tearaway... I got out this colourful Parrot, a prop we've had for years, you say something and the parrot repeats it 3 times, imitating whatever sound you made, or whatever you said... you can make it bark, miau. moo... We've had a lot of fun and laughter out of the silly thing... However the girl was fascinated, it kept her busy for a while, while the parents were getting ready for the portrait session. The studio was set before they came, she was faed in the parrot...so, bang, I got her!

A young family in the studio, mum expecting. I had to shoot the 'free' images fast... pure candids. Not long ago she discovered the joy of running... she loved the studio, tripped over cables, got entangled in the back-ground, refused to sit, hihi, let alone pose? She had a lot of fun, and at the end of the session...

TULIP SEASON, the shy lady... AN AFTERNOON in THE STUDIO.

The tulip season is back... early, yes, but the aRE in the shops!!! A studio portrait of a very camera-shy young lady. Taken on film.View On properBlack and 'softened' by request... It is the new year and I see so many 'dark' and depressive photography? So I decided to upload some UPLIFTING images, just what we need? When making portraits of shy people it is not a bad idea to give some props to loosen them up first, here she was busy trying to make the flowers 'look good', asking me ‘like this’ or ‘like that’? ... If you can have this kind of atmosphere i your studio, it means you are going to have good portraits, that you have succeeded into putting them at ease and that you have something else that is required and makes you a bit more than just a photographer, tee hee, lol, so, that was one for me.

SAXGIRL...

PLEASE READ THIS: MY PHOTOS ARE ONLY FOR SALE DIRECTLY FROM ME! From the series The Musicians. Saxgirl. Was in Holland, studio and all for a big architectural job in Amsterdam. An assistant asked if I'd have the time to take some portraits of her and her sister. The girl also played the saxophone and had tentatively brought her instrument. I didn't mind, so long as I could do some shots for myself, an ongoing project on the importance of 'eyes', for a book. Soul-Windows. Thanks for visiting, still very busy, Magda (*_*)

THAT'S AMORE...

Today 500px.com/kujaja declared it KISSING DAY!!!!!! Lovely idea. So here is a contribution. They had a kiss. An intimate moment, an expression of amorousness, a caress or touch with the lips. They got lost in their own new world, forgot we were there, just for a moment... The lights were in place, it was back to the real business. This was one of the 'unofficial' photographs, I showed them, yes, they thought they were fun, but also a bit embarrassing, however, this was not what they 'wanted', people often have a predilection when they come to a photo studio! It is EXTREMELY important to listen VERY carefully to your clients. They had come for a portrait, celebrating their engagement, that's what they went home with.

LITTLE SECRETS...A CHRISTMAS THEME

For December I'll upload images to do with the festive season. This is going to be many different things... Every year, from when he was a baby, we photographed this boy, then one of the photos was chosen and made into a Christmas card the family sent to their friends. Every year I had to come up with a different idea. I particularly like this one, it is the same electrical Father Christmas as in the image called 'Christmas Spirit', (to come) The little boy became so fascinated and involved, stroking the beard, holding Santa's moving hand gently, looking deep into the kind, artificial eyes. So full of that wondrous marvel only children or very old people seem to posses, it looked like they were having a secret conversation. All the little secrets... May your day be filled with joy, thanx for visiting, Magda, (*_*) For more of my other work visit here: www.indigo2photography.co.uk IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)
