Hard light and Tape

We wanted to do something inspired by all the hype around a certain movie. We chose some Bondage Tape and an Elinchrom Maxilight. The maxi is great for putting a hard light on your subject and shadow behind them. All it required then was some fantastic posing from Sophia.

Natural light in the Fog

Oh it was cold yesterday but it didn't deter us. We had a vision of using the fog to diffuse the light and background in a parade of trees at the studio. All shot with the available light only. Loved it.

Sunday with Sophia

Tracey and Lee came to the studio this weekend as a part of their year long mentoring programme with us. Saturday was spent on post production, marketing and branding. On Sunday it was fun time as we were joined by Sophia for a full day of shooting. As always we started off using natural light and a reflector. Always a beautiful combination.

Rock Chick Sophie

The last look we worked on Sophie's test shoot was a simple two light set up. One Elinchrom maxi light as key and a blue gelled Quadra for the backdrop (the wall is actually white). Add into that a little styling and attitude from Soph and made for a great look.

Promotion in conjunction with 50 Shades of Grey

We are proud to announce a new promo here at Denton Photography. We've been inspired by the '50 Shades of Grey' hype and are guessing you will be too.

Imagine the scene. You and your lover leave the cinema feeling passionate and frisky. You're inspired to try some of the techniques you've seen on the big screen but know that with all the best will in the world by morning all you've have left is a few memories and possibly bruises. Certainly nothing you can share with Facebook and your Instagram pals.

That's where we come in.

We're offering to come around to your chosen venue, classy hotel room or car park at back of Tesco it doesn't matter. We'll explore your vision with you, set the lighting to give mood, ambiance and highlight the critical moments then step back (with a long lens where required) and capture every single moment for posterity. We'll discretely capture your re enaction of the movie in fabulous detail and are an extra pair of hands if needed with tricky knots and sticky tape.

Images will be supplied as low res jpg's straight for sharing with your friends and family. Retouching on skin marks is available should you get a bit too carried away.

Price on application don't leave it too late to book your shoot.

More soft light and Sophie

A sign of a good test shoot is when you fit in so many different looks in the same session. For this part of the shoot we used a large softbox on an Elinchrom HD Pro 500W head. Love the soft look, teamed with a reduced saturation finish.

Softer light, a hippy hat and Soph

This was Sophie's first professional shoot and she really did rock it. We worked a variety of sets and love the looks she produced in this 70's inspired set. Softer light than before and a cross process look applied to the images.
