I went to school with Gemma so we have been friends a long time. I’ve seen Gemma get into competitive fitness modelling and have several successes. Thankfully our calendars and location aligned while Gemma was down in London for a competition.
I wanted to work on the coloured edge lighting setups as well as the very complicated and difficult to get right coloured fill and key.
Gear wise my 50mm f1.4 and 85mm f1.4 are very much my go to portrait lenses and every shot shared here was with the 50mm f1.4
Settings for all shots are iso 100, f5.6, 1/125 exposure, lighting was all pixapro lighting.
This shoot was not without its problems, My lighting case literally fell to pieces so I hurt my back carrying my gear up several flights of stairs to the studio. Suffice to say that case is now in the bin and I’ve since invested in a very sturdy pelican case for my lighting gear.
