STUDIO EDITORIAL PHOTOGRAPHY

I recently had a great session with Stephanie Nelson at the studio. My aim was to go in a lighter direction for this work, we discussed colour palettes and styles before hand, I felt it best to go with a more pastel like colour palette for the series.

LIGHTING DESIGN

The lighting design created was a 3 light setup, using Elinchrom ELC PRO HD lights with 1 large overhead soft box, 1 Rotalux key light off camera right and 1 Rotalux strip box was used for fill off camera left. Additionally, 2 v-flats were used for additional fill.


CAMERA, LENS

These images were shot on the 5DSR with a 100mm F2.8L macro lens, this has recently become my favourite lens / camera combination to use when shooting portraits.


POST PRODUCTION, RETOUCHING

The RAW files were processed initially for minor colour corrections and detail, the images were then retouched in Photo Shop using a number of techniques I have developed over the years. Also, a texture was created for the background and added to the images. All in all, I am quite happy with how the images turned out, Stephanie was fantastic to work with and delivered on a number of very strong poses.
