Cosima’s World….and some food!

HP-Nov-09_cosima

With Home Plus Scotland magazine’s Nov/Dec issue hot off the press I thought I’d post up a few pics from one of the house shoots I have in this issue.  It’s one of my favourite shoots and It’s not so much a house shoot as a showcase for a very talented interior designer and ceramicist called Cosima…and this is her world :)

As you can see by the shot above we ended up with so many nice ‘detail’ shots that the editor Leah wanted to try a montage for the leader page.  I had the chance to design it with her which is always great but it’s always a double-edged sword when working on a design with your own pictures, but I think we’re both really chuffed with how it came out :)

Here’s a few more from the article…

Cosima’s portrait at her desk :)  The house was mostly shot with natural light but I wanted this shot to be quite bright to suit the pinks and blues of the room so I had to use a slightly longer shutter speed to almost blow the windows out (it was quite an overcast, dull and rainy day) and I used a softbox quite high to camera right to fill in the shadows and get the catchlights in Cosima’s eyes.  Really happy with this shot but I wish I’d kept a bit more detail in the desk!

Finally, here’s the food shots from Braehead Food School, well it’s the leader page for the food section…

Hope you liked the pics, as always Home Plus Scotland is always worth picking up :)
