Playing in the Studio

As some of you may have noticed...there are new photos going up. The studio is ready and I'm starting to experiment with the models I have available here. The black background creates a really interesting feel to the portraits like this...

Most of the fun has been kept to different lighting set ups with speedlights and modifiers. I'm loving my coloured gels especially because it gives me the ability to change the background colour from black to any colour gel I have in no time. On the speedlights the gels work great for a single portrait and create a great vignette effect on the background. Now if only I could get Alyssa to keep her eyes open a little more...

As soon as she is in a situation of natural or constant light her eyes are wide open. I love the serious look, the glow from the window light, and the catch light in her eyes!

 

More to come as the shoots continue...
