My photo tips & prop list

Monday, 6 November 2017


I don't typically spend a lot of money on props, some of the things I use in photos I was going to be buy anyway, got as gifts or received in subscriptions boxes. I tend to horde anything I think might be photogenic and quite often pinch things from around my house, my mum always knows when I've been taking photos because ornaments have moved and theres burnt matches on every surface. 

I'm not an expert, this is just a guide for the things that I do because people have asked, I'd actually love some more tips and tricks for the future so if you have any advice then please, let me know in the comments!

It is the autumn term and Greer MacDonald is struggling to settle into the sixth form at the exclusive St. Aidan the Great boarding school, known to its privileged pupils as S.T.A.G.S.

Over the next three days, as the three bloodsports - hunting, shooting and fishing - become increasingly dark and twisted, Greer comes to the horrifying reality that those being hunted are not wild game, but the very misfits Henry has brought with him from school...

Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there's a hundred thousand dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett's son, Davis.
