Raw beauty with minimal make up and mostly lit with one light. That’s how I shot this set of images of new model Ellie Rhodes from Gingersnap. I was running a 1:1 training session for a documentary, travel and environmental portrait photographer who wants to take control of light or make it as required.
Here are 15 shots from this shoot…
Make up: Ellie
Post Production: Lightroom tweaks of the in-camera jpegs
The X-E2 performed like a dream using my shooting systems mentioned here. I’m really into this less is more approach to photography at the moment. Especially when it comes to make up and Photoshop. The vision of a false perfection that photographers and retouchers create is definitely affecting the teenage generation. A lack of self confidence and hangups over appearance is largely down to the over use of Photoshop since the birth of digital imaging.
