Graffiti is very colourful and, often, very artistic. I have been keen to incorporate it in a photo shoot for some time. I feel this would be a great backdrop for teenage or, even, children photo shoots… something a bit different from the usual background and possibly more appealing to unwilling models. Jenny kindly modelled for me and looks terrific against the colourful backdrop. I think the background demands a degree of attitude – whether edgy or just monkeying around. It’s not a background for looking wistful and innocent.
In addition, I’ve wanted to try out photo collages. The graffiti background seemed the perfect opportunity as there is so much detail. I take dozens of similar shots and overlay them to create the complete picture. I plan to do a lot of these in the future and hopefully improve the way I produce the finished image. Hope you all enjoy them.
