A few weeks back I shot a studio photo session at my home based photography studio in Gosfield north Essex. On this occasion I had student photographer Becca Sidhu with me who was looking to develop her portfolio and to learn something about studio portrait photography including lighting and posing techniques. If you follow my blog you will know that Becca has photographed with me before when we photographed models Emma and Jade and produced some exciting environmental portraits on a shoot around Gosfield. You can see those photo here
On this occasion we were photographing model Emma again but this time it was along with her friend Nina. The plan was to shoot some high key portraiture but to also then apply some post production portrait re touching techniques, smoothing skin, enhancing eyes etc. The ultimate goal to was to produce some stunning beauty portraits / fashion style portraits.
The shoot went really well, Emma and Jade were great and really got in to the whole modelling thing, they bought a couple of changes of clothing and were brilliant at posing and following directions, although Nina did occasionally get a fit of the giggles. (But that’s ok it kept us all amused) We worked through a number of different posing and lighting set ups and came away with what I thought were some pretty good portraits.
I have produced a selection of images from the shoot below and will look to add some other at a leter date – stay tuned!
