Tilly and Headshots

Love my headshots. Many are taken under natural light but these were using @Elinchrom lighting and a shallow depth of field with their all new HS System. Matilda Jane is a fantastic subject to shoot.

Sekonic L478DR-EL

I'm not a believer that any piece of kit will make you a better photographer. Practice and ideas are the only things that will benefit you there. However there are a few bits of kit that come into your life that make it all easier and you wonder how you did without? Such a thing is the Sekonic L478DR-EL Light meter. Follow the jump to find out why.

Natural light at f2.8 ISO200 makes great skin tone and a rapid fall off to naturally vignette Evie.

Headshots with Matilda

Always love the natural light start to my training workshops. Here are a few of Tilly from Saturdays session at the studio. Would you care to join us? Drop me a line to book a 121 or 122 workshop with the team and I.

Matilda in the sun

When the sun shines on the farm we get patches of Tungsten balanced light shining through panels in the barn roof. Makes for ideal spot lighting. Add Matilda's posing skills to the mix and it's a great location to shoot in.

A girl on a log

Natural light and a log are a great combo, particularly when you throw Evie into the mix. Found this location on Beverley Westwood a couple of weeks ago and used it a few times now on teaching sessions. The dark patch behind the model really allows her to pop out in the scene and is beautifully framed by the vegetation. Spot metering from her skin tone to get exposure  and pose relative to the angle of light coming from camera right.
