Last month I spent a couple of hours working with a friend’s daughter Becca, producing a selection of studio and location shots for her portfolio. The studio shots were taken using my portable background and lighting whilst the location shots were taken around a local church.
The aim was to produce a selection of both colour and black and white images featuring various angles and poses, and Becca was very easy to work with.
We spent a couple of hours with different seating arrangements and lighting configurations using the studio before moving out to the church. Luckily the weather was on our side and the outdoor shots were all in the shade, so there were no issues with bright sunlight.
A couple of interesting edits to the colour photos included the removal of a wheelie bin (I noticed this before shooting but wasn’t able to move it) and the recolouring of Becca’s hair.
Our two hours together produced over 20 finished images and I’m very pleased with the results, as was Becca.
