Another studio shoot this weekend with the vintage and pinup model ‘August Allure‘ at the photographic studios of Tip Top Photography in the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham. A bit of pre-shoot communication goes a long way so we both had a pretty good idea of what we wanted to achieve and get out of the shoot. Whilst ‘Ms August’ was getting ready I was able to get three separate lighting arrangements set up allowing us to quickly move between each thus minimizing downtime between shoots whilst I faffed around with lighting. This is something I’ve learnt the hard way having spent more time on some shoots messing around with lights than I have actually taking photographs!
Here are some images from our shoot. Head and shoulders shots were all taken with the Oly’ 60mm f/2.8 macro which doubles up as a lovely portrait lens. The rest were taken with the Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8. To keep with the theme of the shoot I’ve used both Analog and Snapseed to apply some ‘vintage’ post-processing effects.
