I’ve been so busy these last few weeks I’ve barely had time to blog. Here are a few of my studio pictures from a couple of recent workshops. I’m so excited to be working with Katy and Natalia, both beautiful girls and delightful with it. Make up is by my house expert, Vicky Waghorn. I hope you enjoy my snaps.
1. One light – A Bowens 750Ws unit fitted with a 40cm beauty dish and honeycomb grid from Ebay.
3. A four light set up.
4. Softened in-camera using my Roger Noons filter.
5. As above
6. I love to keep it all simple in the studio. One softbox and a reflector.
7. An upstage key sets me alight when I’m shooting. All the magic lurks in the shadows.
9. One Lupo 1200 and my magic water reflector.
10. As above
11. We splashed out and shot colour too. We chose 3000K to give our shots the cool treatment.
12. Katy is simply sensational.
13. From above and below.
14. My Venetian blind mark 2 came out for a few shots with the Lupo.
15. I am always experimenting with camera angles.
21. Here is some rhubarb and custard to finish the set. I’m delighted with this first set of pictures of Katy. I think we can go far.
N1. Natalia continues to shine. Her skin is radiant and her eyes are bright. This was our fourth shoot together.
N2. My favourite shot of the day for so many reasons.
N3. Asymmetric shoulder lines are my new thing.
N5. A one light portrait.
N6. Black and white excites me at the moment.
N8. The upstage key strikes again.
N9. The Lupo 1200 with a Chimera softbox and egg crate.
N10. The square is such a great compositional aspect ratio.
N12. The start of a ballet project I have conjured up perhaps.
