Shoots From Home, North West London

After my second year of university and living out in south east London, due to coronavirus I moved back home and had to readjust to the new environment where I would making creative work. However from this experience, my interest in still life/ product photography increased, especially after creating my மரபுகள் meaning “Traditions” project during second year of university. Whilst resettling in this creative environment again, London went into a second lockdown due to coronavirus, which inspired to create some still life work, which predominantly took place in the living room, in my home in north west London.

Before these project shoots, I had never considered creating and producing images and shoots from home, and I was very comfortable and still am shooting on various and different locations across London. I was very lucky with the space that I had at home as it was rather spacious, which meant I ha enough room to work with models as well as including creative props at the same time. However compared to where I lived in south east London, I found that there wasn’t much white space, yet I found that was something easily fixable by using a large sized clean white fabric for a back drop as well the floor to create this white set up that I can build and create my own theatrical sets for shoots. I find that shooting from home is perfect for whenever the weather isn’t that great, as well as easy access. It’s also great way to keep exploring and improving on product and still life shooting.
