Time after time I look out for volunteers to pose for me while I’m testing out some new light set ups or props. This time it was Gavinuccio or Gavi. I wanted to do some images from the top and few moody shots. Luckily Gavi brought shades with him. Those just were perfect for what I was looking for.
We kicked off with images shot from top position. Idea was to shoot a quirky fashion shot. Gavi got the suit and I was wondering how this could look from the top with yellow corn flakes bowl in front. Very light image with white table and kind of breakfasty feelin 🙂
Had an idea to shoot floating shades and Gavi looking into them. I guess lighting for shades could be a lot better, but oh well… I shot shades separately on the white color stick ( easy to comp out) and then comped image of Gavi with shades.
Then moved to my moody portraits with shades on 🙂 Small square soft box on top right and myself wrapped in black sheet to avoid reflection in the shades.
Then we jumped outside of the studio and did some portraits with reflections in the mirror. Idea behind was like in movies when police guys take broken glass or something to see in reflection what is going on. Speedlights for this are very handy.
