Rachel contacted Ian Robinson Photography Studio, having been recommended by a past client. Rachel was in need of a selection of images for a model portfolio. As she hadn’t had any images taken previously, this was to be a new experience for her. Living in the Trafford area, we were perfectly placed for her to call over.
Following a number of emails, Rachel arrived at the studio, armed with a selection of tops to change into.
Initially it was determined which top suited which background. We have a number of backdrop options within the studio and it was clear that the white lace top suited a white/grey background. Next was her black vest top, this was ideal for the traditional background, with an option to control the light for a black background also. Finally we had the red top. It was determined that this would be incorporated with the brick wall to the outside of our studio, which has a graffiti daubing, perfect when matched with her leather jacket.
Time to shoot
Rachel soon got into the rhythm of things, she was very responsive to my requests. It’s often difficult relaying my requests across, particularly when all is required is a little shift of head or hand position, but Rachel was a natural.
We finished our lace top shots, so time to change. While I changed backgrounds, Rachel changed tops. I decided to edit this particular selection to an almost rough, ‘grunge’ style… Personally, these are my favourites. We also used a chiffon wrap which worked very well too.
Now it was onto the outdoor shots. Red top and leather jacket. I decided to light this with a beauty dish and grill, giving a greater direction of light, quite harsh in direction, yet sympathetic to skin tones…. Wow, it think we cracked it Rachel and the very best of luck in your pursuit for work!
