Into 2020

Posted by Bill Gorham on January 5, 2020 at 12:10 PM

I managed to get a few photoshoots under my belt before the lockdown of COVID-19. Most of these took place in January. 


The First Shoot of the Year was with a lovely lady named Jaimee. It was a fairly warm day and there was a fresh snowfall outside that we took advantage of. This provided a wonderful background for the shots that we took. 



Shots from 2019

Posted by Bill Gorham on December 29, 2019 at 6:15 PM

I have been a little remiss in uploading to this site and have added a number of photos in a gallery called 2019 Shoots. All of the photos in that gallery were taken in 2019. Unfortunately I have not posted shots from all my shoots as I did over 40 shoots last year.


But since I posted this post in February I thought I would at least post on Valentines Shoot picture.


The JASS Girls (Jessica, Alyshia, Shannon and Samantha)

Emily and her Horse

Posted by Bill Gorham on March 4, 2018 at 9:20 AM

I recently had the opportunity to shoot with a beautiful lady and one of her horses. Emily and Fred proved to be a very adept models. We experimented with backdrops in the stable and were able to capture some very spectacular shots. But I would be remiss if I did not share some to them.

I recently did an implied shoot wth the beautifult Nataliee G. A true professional she was very pleasant to work with and the perfect subject for all of the fantastic photos that I took of her. Here are a few samples.




Zombies Invade

Posted by Bill Gorham on October 26, 2016 at 5:55 PM

The Zombies swarmed through the city recently on a search for brains. Fortunately people were able to scramble out of the way of the creatures and get to safety. They congregated down at the city park and were captured on film. Well at least in digital format.

Playing with Architecture

Posted by Bill Gorham on April 20, 2015 at 9:05 AM

I decided to pull a few photos of buildings that I have in the collection and play with some editing just to see how they would turn out. As you can see I think that they turned out pretty well. The first shot was of the Prince of Wales hotel in Niagara-on-the -Lake, Ontario. I managed to capture it without any modern vehicles in the way and only a horse drawn carriage out front. This gave it a look of what it would have seemed like back in the 1800’s when the building was built.

The second shot was from the spring last year when the tulips were in bloom in front of Kingston City Hall. I decided that I liked this in Black and White because it gave the shot a dreamy quality. What do you think?


Portraiture Photography

Posted by Bill Gorham on March 22, 2015 at 8:55 AM

I have recently taken a portraiture course at a local college. this course was designed to help the photographer understand better the interaction between the camera and the model. We had several models for the course and most of the shots were taken using natural light. I am pleased with the results and plan to take the next level of the course later in the spring and summer.

Here are a couple of the shots from the course. It was fun working with these models and learning about the techniques for taking portraits.


Pinup Shoot

Posted by Bill Gorham on January 28, 2015 at 1:10 PM

I had the pleasure of shooting a few beautiful models last weekend in Pinup style. My first shoot was with Audrey Hipturn and Miss Gypsy Jones. Both ladies are Burlesque dancers and the style cam through in the shots. Here are a couple.

My second shoot was with Rhapsody Blue and Justine RB. These two lovely ladies made it particularly easy to get some fantastic shots. I hope to get the chance to shoot with all four of them again in the future.

Christmas Fun Shoot

Posted by Bill Gorham on December 17, 2014 at 8:05 PM

I had the opportunity to shoot with a great group of ladies this week. All done with a Christmas theme. The Ladies were assisted by a trio of Makeup and hair artists of Amanda Brathwaite, Germaine and Shannon Doyle. They worked their magic and made Alexare, Megan, Nisha, Shayla, and Sophie look fantastic.

A Shoot with Charlotte

Posted by Bill Gorham on July 25, 2014 at 4:00 PM

I had the opportunity to shoot with a lovely girl named Charlotte in Kingston this past week. This is the second time I have had the pleasure of working with her. As in our previous shoot she was fantastic to work with. Shots of our shoot are available in my portfolio. Be sure to check them out.

I even did a little editing of one of the first shot here . This is what it is like.


Buskers Festival

Posted by Bill Gorham on July 14, 2013 at 9:30 PM

This weekend was the Buskers Festival and I had the chance to take some shots of the entertainers. Saturday was the fire show and I attended to take some shots of them playing with fire.

 

Daytime saw some other shots taken,

I also got a chance to visit the HMCS Kingston when it was in port. A shot of the flags.



Green Screen Photography

Posted by Bill Gorham on June 23, 2013 at 9:55 AM

This past weekend I participated in an experiment of green screen photography. A number of us met up at another members house and set up my green screen kit. We were fortunate enough to have a fantastic lady, Amanda volunteer to be the model for the group. From posing to video work we have now been able to say that we have done some green screening. I have included a picture from the shoot to give an indication of what the before and after shots looked like.

The Before and After shot of our beautiful model. We learned that there needs to be better light on the Green Screen to separate the model from the background and to allow for software to better isolate the image from the background. I am looking forward to further experimentation in the future.

You can see more of Amanda at the Meetup Group.

Henrys PhotoExposure show

Posted by Bill Gorham on May 31, 2013 at 3:40 PM

The Henry's Photoexposure show in Toronto this past weekend was fantastic. I managed to sit in on a number of seminars with one of the best by Scott Kelby, renowned photographer and Photoshop expert. I even practiced out some the techniques that he taught there. Here is but one sample.

Off Camera Flash

Posted by Bill Gorham on January 26, 2013 at 5:40 PM

I just started a course at College using off camera flash, Part of the practice is to test out the technique ourselves if only to get used to the equipment and using it in a remote more. I took a few shots of the boyz today to try some of the things. Here is a shot from the day. Other samples can be found on my Flickr Site. More images will be coming as I progress through the course which runs until the 14th of February.
