Back to the studio.17/10/2011 - 6:25 PM
I have a shoot coming up on the 28th of this fine month, at Saracen House studio MK, with Amber.
Its actually Ambers day at the studio, she will be there from early until late, and i got roped into it 2 weeks ago, agreeing to have the first slot.
Myself and Amber have now had 2 shoots together, both have been double shoots, first with Jan and secondly with Natalie, and both shoots were incredible, great fun and rewarding. But i have to admit, i am more than looking forward to working with her alone.
Needless to say, this forthcoming studio shoot we have booked is going to be one of those shoots which will have a lot of planning, and i have now finished those plans. Everything is set, and i already know what the images will look like.
In fact, i have not planned a shoot so meticulous for so long that it has been great to get my teeth into something like this. We are going for a very bright, yet understated look. The lighting i have in mind is very classic, for a change, using butterfly lighting for the head shots, and the butterfly technique for full length shots, as well as lights to pick out her hair, and the background.
The last time i did a studio shoot was at a time when my health was very poor, and the images looked ****, no other word for it, my eye was not on the ball and i lost the game. Though the lighting set up and everything else was perfect, i just was not myself that day and i think the model felt that, hence poor images. But i feel 100 times better now than i did back then, and being far from ambivalent, i have spent many hours mulling this next studio shoot over and over, so much so that i an now relax because i know i have everything from lighting/clothing/styling all figured out. And as i said, i already have the images in my head, all i need to do is keep them there until i get into that studio. Only 12 days away
