Fortunately I get to second shoot sometimes with someone who has had 25+ years in the business. This helps me improve my portrait photography skills and I always learn something. The other day it was a shoot with a lovely young lady who wanted some artistic modeling shots for her portfolio. Artistic meaning not nude but partially unclothed; sensual. The shots I liked the most were the ones involving just one light in a somewhat darkened studio. It’s amazing the results one can get depending on where light is coming from/focused on.
I could really get used to doing shots like these; I loved the outcome. The first shot has a soft sepia effect applied, the middle is as shot, and the last one was converted to black and white.
(Have a happy weekend everyone. I shall be offline for a few days as it’s Comic-Con time again and I am debuting a new cosplay character costume I made myself! Will see you next week with some fun shots.)
