I shot all of these 33 pictures using the Fujifilm X-Pro1 with the 18-55mm zoom lens and a Tiffen Black Pro Mist 1/8th filter attached. One camera, one lens and up to two lights at any time for a simple yet stylish shoot. I had 5 delegates with me and we shot all day in the sumptuous Hilton Hotel in Manchester. We were in the Cloud 23 bar all morning and then after a delightful lunch we moved to the corridors and reception areas for the afternoon shoot.
I worked with a narrow gamut and aimed for a harmony of colour hues.
Fashion shoots for a designer have to show the whole dress from the front back and ¾ views plus we have to shoot the details too. This workshop was aimed at those photographers wanting to offer their brides a fashion shoot type experience. I gave less attention to the dress than I would do on a commercial shoot and I gave Carla a bit more of a role and prominence.
This was my first shoot with Carla and I am very excited about our next shoot together. Take a look at this! Carla and I would love you to join us. There are just two places left (at the time of writing) and I’ll be mood boarding the shoot this weekend.
