Default 3 shoots.. 3 models.. 2 on location ...all in one month

late June and early july's been a pretty busy month as I've done 3 shoots in a month which I've never done before. A wee too much to do now looking at how many pics and how much stylings been involved.

1. Jess - model from the PCNW. Outside on location in London and I had to use the flash on camera which I just hate.







2. Ely - on location at Hadleigh Castle. Now I know why stylist don;t like to use close fitting outfits when out in open spaces.







3. Marina, she was on hols from Oz and got in touch about getting together and shoot and as I had already booked the studio she was ideal - Theme was angels and I'm working on PP how to get the wings done without looking fake or too tacky which is proving pretty hard to do.







Cheers

Harj

Nice work Harj, I especially like the first one of Ely. I'm a big fan of Black and White portrait or fashion photography. I've never tried it, not my thing I guess, but I've always liked it. Nice shots

Hi Harj,

As you continue in Fashion shoots, I can see and appreciate your improvements in composition, lighting, and technique.

It's the last that strikes most me most as I think, your technique is both unique and very pleasing to the eye.

Hi Guys

Thanks for all of the comments .. and Ted/Steve.. I'm working on it ! Jess is the 2nd American model that I've shot with now and she was really cool, so it'd be nice to do a shoot on location stateside.I forgot how easy working in studio is compared to being on location.

Zig, regards the lighting I've not changed it really since last year as I find that having a single large strobe is pretty effective but this time with a beauty dish fitted. Surprising as its just a single light and when you consider the size of Adrian's studio that you'd think it would not be enough. This video by photographer David ken is basically the same setup that was used...

Eric, B&W 's are really handy when mess up the exposure or the highlights get totally blown out! I use LR's virtual copy feature heavily so that i can see whether a pic in B&W is as good or better than the colour. What I did find strange this time round with Marian's shoot was that the KR converted jpegs from the RAW files were 2MB+ smaller than the OOC jpegs. Usually theyre about the same or larger but not this time.

Well I'm pretty sure Steven R was volunteering to set up a location in the US Mid-Atlantic area.

I say that because I might have some difficulty with doing that. My wonderful wife is extraordinarily understanding about my hobby but in this case she's likely to say, "Explain this to me one more time..."
