Continuing with sports fashion I decided to move away from backdrops that where clean which lead to the main focus being on the product
I wanted to make the model and background to harmonise and become more fluid, something that is traditionally seen in Vogue where the background and props are just as influential as the clothes the model is wearing.
So I thought that these images could be used for my lit portrait part however after talking to my tutor today because of the focus and definition of these shots they would work better for fashion head shots.
Im going to explore a lit shot that isn’t studio based, expanding into the realms of environmental portrait.
However I’m still going to try and shoot a full length fashion shoot when I’m back home in Yorkshire.
I still cant decide between black and white or colour, so I’ll leave them sat together, so I don’t have to make a decision.
This was in Bodmin last night, it was a pretty dry and clear night ( Ive been waiting for a night like this for well over a month) looked to be a new moon as well so there was no natural light pollution coming from the moon. Unfortunately there was light pollution coming from a few cars so thats why there is a light patch on the horizon.
It started of difficult as my shutter release device broke on me, so for an hour and twenty minutes I pressed the shutter every thirty seconds, so thats why the trail isnt completely straight!
At the end I started to fill in the tree’s with a speed-light with a green filter to pick up the foreground.
I’m going back tonight to try again and hopefully get a better horizon as I’m not too happy with the composition of this photo, (added element of it being pitch black makes impossible to see what your doing)
Im so miffed I missed the north star, its my aim tonight to get the north star in my photograph.
Working on a previous shoot I have done with Sally, I wanted to develop further into the field of fashion head shots. I Started with a similar look nude and natural look like last time to switching it up with a heavy aqua grunge makeup.
Will be uploading colour ones soon I just want to make some adjustments but here is a quick black and white edit for you lovely people.
