Socially distant

By dudler
It's starting to be possible to arrange shoots with models again. Chimping the images on the camera apart, it would be perfectly possible to do an hour or two out of doors, around a quiet local area...

I haven't done it yet, and may well not do so for a while, but it can be something rather different for the portfolio.

Alternative model Princess B making good use of a fire escape in Longton a while back. The sunshine provided graphic shadows: Princess B's harsh punky makeup worked with the light to make something interesting of a 'mundane' location.

What can you do locally? My blog today encourages you to see your home and locale as a tourist.

Great use of the shadows John, the way the shadow of the face works really spot on...

Seems we're all focusing on the shadow - the punk look is very strong.

The face shadow is a real eye-catcher. Did you try a close-up shot of that part only? However, more likely you did notice this feature until you got home. I do like the diagonal shadow leading you towards the model.

Excellent use of the available light John. Strong shadows, vibrant colours
and a great expression from Princess B.

For me, it's all about the shadow.
Have you considered cropping the model out completely and providing more wall to the left of the shadow?

'Harsh' lighting can clearly work in some situations.

Unless you're into widengles 2 m distancing is perfectly feasible, and if your lens has a focus distance scale there's no excuse Smile

Even the shadow has a forlorn look. She is quite the colourful gal. I really like this image John.

Or, unsocially close, John.
Great expression and shadows in excellent light.

Social distancing or not, I wouldn't want to get too close to her, given her expression!Wink

The shadow is beautiful as you don't see the frown and the punk!

New rules for social distance in photography: we shoot models only with 200 mm and more, tele......
Excellent thought and use of the shadows, a great work, John!
