WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
In 2008 I purchased my first DSLR, a Nikon D40, I had little knowledge on how to use a camera or how to work with lighting. This was my first ever set up produced during that time, using various precariously perched desk lamps with translucent coloured acrylic sheets leant against them. I blagged and borrowed props and set them against varnished cladding. It was an attempt to mimic the work process of set designers and cinematographers I admired.
Though this photo was un-used it became a building block for the American Reflux project, which has lay dormant for the past year due to work commitments. Next week I begin the first in a series of on location shoots for a sequel ‘of sorts’.
