Part of my ‘black light’ series that I’ve been exploring for the past couple of years. The beard has been painted and taken with a slow shutter speed and wide aperture. It was quite a task to get a crisp shot with such long shutter speeds.
I love the results but would like to start using this effect in a whole scene rather than just head shots / still life shots. I think i’m going to start sketching out some scenes…watch this space!
I took photo’s last month at the Southbank Centre for Architects of Our Republic - a spoken word event organised by Apples and Snakes to mark the 50th anniversary Of Martin Luther Kings’ I have a Dream Speech.
The photos feature performances from The Last Poets, Zena Edwards, Ibrahim Sincere and Architects of Our Republic Young Writers group.
