In a previous post I described the kit I have acquired to equip me with enough lighting to do some off-camera flash portraits. The good thing about this kit is that it is portable enough to take anywhere and as all the bits are AA battery powered don’t rely on you being near any power outlets. That said, I decided my first serious excursion for trying it out would be in a studio rather than location. I therefore booked a couple of hours at Tip Top Studio in the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham for a shoot with the model (and photographer) Lisa Violet.
Here is a small sample of the shots we obtained at the shoot with a few notes on the lighting setups. As you can see we were trying something a bit edgier that the usual common-or-garden fashion shoot and I think Lisa was a great person to practice on in that respect. Some images have been post processed using Perfect Photo Suite 7.
