Beauty laid bare – by Damien Lovegrove

1. Every now and then I come across someone with a fabulous character and beauty to match. Claire, represented by Gingersnap agency has it all. She is fun and vibrant. This shot was lit with a Lupolux Quadlight 1500 and winter sunlight.

Camera: Canon 5D mk2 with a 100mm f/2.8 macro or a 50mm f/1.4 (My Fuji was on safari in Africa with Julie)
Makeup: Just a minimal touch of eye pencil with natural skin and lips
Post production: A few tweaks in Lightroom. No cloning, presets or Photoshop
Location: Old Down Manor bridal suite
Lighting: Lupolux Quadlight 1500, Grid attachment and Lupolux LED 1000 used when the sun went in

Here are 37 pictures from my first shoot with Claire. Shoot duration 2 hours. Enjoy

      Thank you Erran. I’m loving moody lighting too. I shot high key for the agency and for Claire. I’ll be shooting more low key shots tomorrow. Maybe it’s a new direction for me.

      Haha, Damien.
