first of all, I am now happy to share some shots with you I took a few weeks ago with model Diana. As we wanted to get them into an online magazine, one of the conditions was that the images haven't been published before... now that they are out in Issue 3 of Flawless Magazine I am happy to share some of the shots with you.
The shots we took on one of the last reasonable warm days in October on a rooftop, sun was out and gave a great light. I really wanted a cold feel to the images so overexposed slightly and used the sun as well as an additional flash to give a bit of extra light. The wind was quite cold but the flying hair in the face was great and I think ended up being one of my favourite images. All in all, real happy with the result. As always, it was a great pleasure to work with Diana who came once again with a huge wardrobe, glad we didnt had to go far to get to the location. The images that I will show at the end are screenshots of the tearsheets from the magazine, so unlike most shots in my blog, they have been retouched.
The next shoot I will write about today was a fashion shoot I did together with stylist Sam, mua's Liv and Chloe and hairstylist Lily as well as model Noelle from Oxygen and Kristin from BookingsModels. The idea was a futuristic shoot so Sam got the outfits and then we started with the backdrop. We wanted a simple backdrop with some wires across the backdrop. Then while the girls were in makeup I set up the lights. As we wanted the futuristic look I went for one blue flash from one side to give some extra colour while a beauty dish on my left created a nice light yet a little shadow on the face. Then one stripbox on the left to get some light from the side and one light on the background. We started at 2 at the studio and around 4 we stared shooting and finished just before 9pm. It was a long but good day with everyone being happy with the results. For me its now time to start retouching the images and I will get a few onto my webpage once they are done. Till then, here are some shots that are edited only, some colour correction, contrast and exposure.
Have a great day and hope to hear some feedback. Also dont forget to press 'like'
and to follow my facebook page if you haven't done so already.
As always, a big thank you to everyone who made those shoots happen, its great to work with people like you.
And finally, for those of you who actually are reading all that here, the pics to look at...
