Recently I had a fashion shoot with Nicole in the studio. Nicky is an aspiring model I’ve had the pleasure of working with several times. In this shoot, we tried out a variety of new lighting ideas.
In the picture above, we had one small light in a grid just behind Nicky, and another small harsh light in front of her, to the left of the camera. The effect is close to a cinematic or stage lighting esthetic.
Several of the images translated well to black and white. In this image, the wardrobe and the background were monochromatic to start with. The black and white conversion can add a classic element to a portrait or fashion photograph.
Thanks, Nicky, for a fun and productive shoot!
