Here some shots from a photoshoot in Paris.
Very nice captures. The only crit I would have is that the angles are a biiit on the strong side. For instance, the angle on #4 is great, but the angle on 2 and 3 is too strong to really enjoy. The last image could probably use a bit of a jump in contrast as well, although that's up to opinion.
Great job with lighting and balance between strobes and ambient light. What light modifiers did you use, if I might ask? I'd like to guess it was a beauty dish (or umbrella perhaps) or small-medium softbox, or even barebulb, but I'm probably completely off.*
*haha I like how I mentioned several different modifiers, which I figured would give me a higher chance of one of them being right. *crosses fingers* "please don't be an octobox" In all honesty, first thing that came to my head was beauty dish. Which is probably wrong. I'm going to stop typing now.
I travel lite when I do a shoot on a location like Paris. (450km from home)
That's Also because I drive a small car with 3 other people and there luggage.
So I took one camera, one lens, a porty 1200J powerpack and head, and a 9 inch reflector and a small umbrella.
The girl is beautiful and I have to agree that some of the angles are a little extreme and also the color looks a little off. Some of the framing is brilliant and light/ambient balance is excellent also. Overall I say well done.
Would have been nice to get a second light in there to get rid of her shadow.
Don't have enough space in my car to take a second porty with me on a trip like this
Plus, images would look like pasted without the shades.
Love your work and I love these photos. Only thing I can suggest is do not show the light source.
Love & Bass
Showing the lightsource is something I do on purpose.
See my recent work
Beautiful, clear, and great angled shots.
There is some really great stuff in there. You are professional, qui?
