On 17th February 2013, we took to the streets of Brighton with a red vintage suitcase as part of the very first #PhotoDay project.
#PhotoDay is about creating a connected body of work, linking local people, their environment, and the rest of the online world. This is a sort of stylised street photography / environmental portrait. The prop (red suitcase) was 'imposed' on the people we met, this not only allows to juxtapose the elements to creates something that is quirky, but create a link between all the photos.
We shot two sets on the day:
1. Instant set -
images were shot with a DLSR onto an 'Eye-Fi' card (wifi SD card) and were instantly processed on the go using the Afteglow iPhone app and uploaded to my blog Anton's Dairy
. Plus all images appeard on my Instagram stream live on the day of shooting. You can search #PhotoDayBrighton to see all the photos together. All Photography by Anton- thisisanton.com
2. Creative set - A second set was shot by Wayne Kahn adding artificial lighting and post processing a few days later using Visual Supply Co to give a more finished look. The result is a much more dramatic and darker. All photography by Wayne Kahn - waynekahnphotography.co.uk
