In the Studio with Kier

13 Sep 2016 10:16PM   Views : 581 Unique : 378

Today Neil and myself took Kier into the studio. The intention was to shoot some Fine Art Nude, but it also strayed into experimenting with light and fashion. Very old fashion as it turned out, with medieval dresses. We spent a couple of hours, but it could have been much longer as there was so much to explore. The nudes will appear in the Gallery with the appropriate adult filter, but I can add some of the other images here for you to have a look at.

They were shot using the Pentax K-1 and the HD Pentax-D FA 28-105mm lens. We used continuous lighting rather than flash and I always feel it gives a different quality to the skin tones. In any event, the Pentax cameras are excellent with skin tones. We also used a small 64 LED light panel, which proved very interesting when trying to play with dramatic lighting effects. Quite a few of the images are with the model's eyes closed, which is probably frowned upon in many quarters, but I do like the detached look it gives.

The Amazing Dalbeattie Museum Trust

This is a small but packed museum in Dalbeattie, Dumfries and Galloway. It covers a couple of floors in a corner shop location and is packed with artefacts, the bad news for us being that many of them are things that we have owned or used as youngste...
