How Going Old School With Vintage Lenses Taught Me To Be a Better Photographer - by Mr Twig

If you’re a regular here at The Branch then you will recognise one of our most used taglines ‘Iconic Vintage Photography.’ But what does this mean? Well, our images have always had a nostalgic look and feel to them - that’s one of our main USPs. In the early days this was created more so in post production using filters or ‘presets’ but, over the last 18 months or so, we’ve begun to develop a more subtle retro vibe created predominantly in camera, using actual old film lenses. 

Old school lenses can be adapted for use on modern digital cameras and the results have gotten us hooked. These tiny pieces of glass, some now more than 60 years old, create an authentic vintage look with built-in bokeh and vignette that is just extraordinary.

Whole Lotta Love - by Mr Twig

Now I bet, even without reading any further than the title, you’ve guessed that guiding you through this blog is non other than your hero, Mr Twig. 

I wanted to put a quick post together to talk about love. Specifically, how much I love a Love Shoot. See, the title makes sense now (and, coincidentally, is linked to my all time favourite band. EVER). 

Love Shoots are our version of pre-wedding shoots. We just like to be different. The selection of images you see here are of the awesome Sam & Jay, set against the backdrop of the historical town of Shifnal.

Talking Techy with Mr Twig - Rews Gig Photography 

Last week I had the opportunity to photograph up-coming female duo, Rews, at their sold out Birmingham show. If you’ve not yet had the absolute pleasure of the aural, pop-rock assault that is Rews then you need to a) finish reading this blog and b) click here.

On the night of the gig, Rews were absolutely phenomenal. I was blown away by the fullness of sound made by just two people on stage, and how close the live track versions sound to the album. But, hey, this is not a gig review, you came here for the photography right?
