Creating dramatic dress portraits - Chris Hanley shows us how a picture rail and a dress can make a unique image.
Chris Hanley is one of Damien Lovegroves training experts and also one of Damien's co tutors. Courses are now available on how to replicate their shooting styles on Damien's website. You can also visit Chris Hanley's blog for more information.
Here's his tip:
"Creating dramatic dress portraits in cluttered bridal bedrooms where space maybe at a premium can be difficult.
I hung this dress from a picture rail above the bed head and lit it with a zoomed in speedlite off camera."
Taken on a Nikon D3. ISO800 -2stops compensation at around 60mm.
