As you may know, if you read my blog regularly, I've been working on my studio photography skills. I'm mostly interested in coloured lighting and long exposure effects in the studio. Anyway this was my first shoot, I booked Studio 33 in High Barnet and my Model was Ria
The studio is a great venue with plenty of space, there is a lot of natural light flooding in which some people like, personally I prefer to be in a dark room with now windows but the studio was great for the sets that I wanted to work on.
We worked on 3 sets over a 3 hour period, they were as follows:
- Gelled edge
- Coloured fill
- Temperature wrap
These are all very effective and eye catching sets but each come with their own challenges.
Here are a few of my edits from the shoot.
Lens wise I'm using my 50 f1.4 for everything other than the head shots, for those I'm using my 85mm f1.4
Settings are all f5.6 and 1/200 of a second at iso 50. That's about as shallow as I could get with the ambient light in the studio.
In summary, though I'm really happy with my results, I'm working on another shoot with the same model to do some long exposure work.
