The 'other' ring-finger by Ell-on-Wheels

Currently unavailable for purchase

We had an appointment with our ‘snipper’, who very very kindly and graciously allowed me to take some practice shots of him in action, snipping my fella’s hair … he ‘transforms’ us every 8 or so weeks and is worth every meter of travel and minute of time it takes us to get there!

He offered to stop and pause every now and then, to which I declined saying I wanted him to carry on as though I wasn’t there … all images are taken ‘on-the-go’!

Capturing people being people, and the finer details of four and two wheeled blingy classic automotives – two fave ‘topics’ of imagery :-))

    Ha very clever, love the lustre of the ‘ring’!

  • Heehee, thanks very much Georgie :-D
    It’s metal and it’s shiney – my two favourite things to image! :-D

    This is my favourite of the “Snipper” series as well as “Appointment”. It’s the intense quirky detail and the ‘chrome’ ring that make it. And all in perfect focus with lots of shallow DOF.

  • Thank you so much Rhoufi :-D
    Mine too I think, especially because there are bits of hair actually flying off his scissors – they are the ‘specs’ in the dark space above his hand … not obvious, unless you know what the ‘specs’ are … now you do :-)
