Introducing Ms Helen Flannagan

Helen is a good friend and a very talented photographer who I have had the pleasure of working with. I met her  on one random day when I went to the cafe where she works at and after getting to know each other she approached me and asked to do a photoshoot. Helen is so lovely and talented, how could I refuse?

Here are some shots she took of me.

Ok so they are all mostly the same kind of pose. I hate posing. I envy the people who I have seen here on the blogsphere and well, models who can do it so naturally. I think I look like a prat when I try to pose. So when Ms Flanagan told me she wanted to do a 'natural' shoot, it made me feel at ease. I didn't have to smile or bend my body in an awkward position like those fashion models. All she wanted me to do was look at the camera, relax and look sad. Easy peasy. We even used props like eyedrops to make it look like I have been crying.

I am pleased with how the pictures turned out. Helen uses a film camera for her photography and it's always exciting to see how the pictures turns out after they've been developed. Takes me back to the days when I was a kid before digital cameras were around. The excitement that you felt when you've finished a roll of film and waiting for them to be ready and picked up from the camera shop. Ah fun times.

Anyway back to Helen, she has also had her work published in numerous publications such as the telegraph, YVI magazine and fraction magazine just to name a few.

Please feel free to have a look at her website and her blog and if you like what you see don't forget to follow her too :)
