I realised I hadn’t updated or blogged for a little while, partly because I have had some computer problems that are now, (hopefully) solved, and partly because I am lazy! Bad Golding!
Anyway I shot with a new model on Wednesday, by the name of Lydia who is pretty local to me. It was a bit of an experiment for me as I have recently changed my camera and to be honest I was a little nervous as I have been using the same camera for nearly 10 years now and I had kind of got used to it. I wasn’t sure how I would do with the change.
Anyway, we shot lots of pretty lingerie type stuff, but I didn’t want it to look like typical glamour photography, nothing too brightly lit. Luckily Lydia wanted something along similar lines.
She brought this amazing Pink body by Pretty Little Thing which I thought was really gorgeous. We shot in my living room using my Chesterfield sofa, (strangely the Pink didn’t clash with the Red of the sofa too much) I used a big mirror to reflect some patterns from the window onto the back wall and dragged my coffee table and lantern into shot to give a lead in to the image.
I had set the colour control on the camera to ‘Vivid’ as I had never used it before and thought it might be fun to bump the colour a bit of the lingerie. The only other work in post was a bit of light pulled back on Lydia’s hair in Lightroom using the adjustment brush, and then into Photoshop and to clean some marks up on the wall and a little selective sharpening on the lamp and Lydia’s lingerie
No other lighting was used in this image. Its all ambient.
