Yesterday, I posted a picture from a photoshoot I worked on with a model called Tereza. Melanie from Grab the Lapels left a thought-provoking comment about the tendency towards uncomfortable poses in fashion photography, particularly for women.
This is the fifth and final image in this week’s segment on a studio lighting session I recently attended, where I photographed Angel. This lighting set up for this shot was very balanced. I should perhaps have posted this image first in the series, as it shows Angel at his most natural. It was really interesting to learn how different lighting set ups can create a completely different feel in an image. Each of the five photos are so different, just with fairly simple modifications to the lighting and poses of the model. I hope to get back to the studio soon to try out more techniques.
