12 Looks Tour

In July and August we're joining forces with our friends from Elinchrom and The Flash Centre to tour the UK. We'll be visiting five different studios and showcasing a number of looks. We'll show you how we style them, light them, pose them and direct them. After everyone has had chance to shoot then I'll be guiding you through how I retouch each look. Laura will be our model at each event and can't wait to hit the road now. Come and join us through the link below

A little more lingerie with Laura

Same set up as previous post but moved the light in closer to get stronger contrast and quicker fall off. Love the mood of late night seduction it creates.

Grab your ticket for the 12 Looks tour in July, Laura will be our model and we've got some great ideas planned. Styling, lighting, posing and retouching, something for everyone!

Lingerie and Laura

Loving working with Laura and her curves as they lend themselves so well to the lingerie style of boudoir photography. In this set we played around with a single Elinchrom light off to one side with a 70 cm deep Octa fitted to give a little pop of light across her.

Backlight and a reflector

If you get creative with light then it can do all sorts of jobs for you. In this set we were hiding from a little drizzle in a loading bay on a less than inspirational looking industrial estate. I turned Laura's back to the light so that she appeared as a silhouette. The meter reading was then taken from her so that there was enough light on her. To enhance it we held a silver reflector above her head and angled it to give crispness to the soft and milky light flooding around Laura.

Boudoir with Laura

I love boudoir photography as it comes in so many different forms it's almost impossible to tie down as a single genre. In this set we used a single flash head and let Laura rock the posing.

Fun in Watford

Now the title to this post may not be obvious but had a fab couple of days down south with Laura this week. We shot a ton of different looks from fashion to art nude. These were from our boudoir based set in a beautiful lingerie set provided by one of the delegates. Single Elinchrom Flash fitted with strip box to provide the light and shadows across Laura.

Natural light and Laura

Laura was our model on a teaching session at the studio on Wednesday. The light levels weren't fantastic on the day but we worked it the best we could with just a California Sunbounce as modifier on these first shots.

Outstanding in her field!

I love using Elinchrom Quadra Rangers outdoors to bring down the ambient light. On Saturday Devon stood out in the very wet field and I underexposed the sky slightly to bring detail into the clouds. A single flash head with 70cm Deep Octa added light to Devon and I love the results.
