Experimental Shoots: What a load of Pollocks with Leah Axl
Squirty painty mess!!
The pictures really speak for themselves about what was going on. But here's some tips.
1) Test colours on yourself first, keep them on the skin for at least an hour then wash off. Make sure they do not stain !!! (Even finger paints can stain)
2) You can use squirty poster paint, childrens paints, proper body paint, even food colouring in yoghurt.
3) It will make a mess of your studio, floors, bathroom, shower etc
4) It is all more random than you can imagine.
About the Experimental Shoots Blog Posts
In this series I am focussing on different kinds of setups I've tried. Some are more successful than others. The idea is tweak your creative juices. I'm going to give a few tips as we go, but not full details - I want your experiments to be your own - you will have different ideas, equipment, setups and so on.
I am always interested in the results, and if you want to post them to me I would be very happy to put them on the blog.
You can learn how to develop your own lighting, posing and directing skills with our extensive and intensive range of video programs available on DVD or download.
