Latest news from the very nerve centre of Fame Fad with a look back at March and the photo highlights and a also a look forward to what will be happening in April.
Only covered one event in March so the photo highlights are taken from that event.
Photo of the Month March 2015 is a pregnant Laura Hamilton at the 2015 TRIC Awards below.
Why do I like this shot? Beautiful smile, good eye contact and the angle is good really capturing that baby bump. Front on the shot wouldn’t have been so dramatic. A real grass roots shot that says “Yes I’m a celebrity but I get pregnant and have babies just like the rest of you!” She looks like she’s pretty much due so hats off to her for turning up in the first place
Second favourite shot from the same event is Nadia Ford walking down Park Lane a few feet from the photo area, a shot that no other photographer got. It’s a bit different and up close and personal. Again good eye contact and what I call a Mona Lisa smile. Those are the best! Focus is what I call an annoying 98% but sometimes if a shot is that good I just go with it these days but on a technical basis it will never sell in a million. I call it soft focus and a “moment” shot, the media would call it a reject shot. Regardless I think it’s a cracker and she’s here. Sometimes it’s not about 100% sharp!
So what’s happening at Fame Fad in April? In a word I’m back this month after being involved in other projects since early December last year. Normal service should resume after the Easter holidays. Due to the fact I’ve been sort of out of the celebrity game for some months, it will take a few weeks to get back into the celebrity information curve getting to know again who’s here, who’s there, who’s buzzing and what’s on.
Here’s a quick look at what’s on in film premiere terms in April. I don’t attend these events anymore these days but the departures from the hotels have produced some interesting shots that float my boat and paddle my canoe. No guarantees on any of these but there are some decent names here.
