I undertook this Portrait studio photography with Hannah Cates, Charlie Pardington and Luke Boyden. In the hope of creating some memorable photography. With Hair and makeup by Kellie Licorich all where from Alan Sharman Agency.
Mixed lighting natural daylight coming through the studio window supplemented with a mix of low powered flash. I used some of my old Strobe strips, these are incredible lights. Utilising the modelling tubes function, they are so low power so as not to over power the daylight. Also they add great catch lights to the eyes.
I hired in a 150mm Hasselblad 3.5 lens perfect of this type of Portrait studio session. An absolutely monster of a Lens. With extreme shallow focus if the eyes were in focus and eyebrows were out !
The day was a very relaxed and easy session, fantastic work from Kellie on the hair and make-up, and the look that Hannah gave me was exactly what I was after, commercial portrait with a twist.
I have vast experience with portraits but the majority have been Business for annual reports it was great to do something different and not to have a client, except myself.
Great session with results to follow, thanks to all for all their efforts and help.I was very pleased.
