Again, breaking some rules…like roll out a seamless.

NO SEAMLESS HERE.

Not that Studio 304 doesn’t have that to offer. I just wanted to shoot photo-j-ey fashion. Yes, correct, I just made up a new genre of photography. Standby for accompanying textbook…..It’s about to get real.

Thanks to everyone for tuning into this series. It was great to kind of stretch what I normally shoot and see what I can bring back to the table for my clients.

Until next time….aka tomorrow.

Alright,

Another in the series of images of @holly_mj… with makeup by Geeta Singh… I know on-camera-flash is really a rookie thing to use but I wanted to play with a Norman head and see what there was to be had…

Popped the flash right under then lens and positioned Holly right against a wall to get a kinda drop-shadowey look to it all. I really like how this shot ended up and I like even more that I was breaking a photography rule to make it happen. Rules are there to know…but as soon as you know them they’re free game for target practice.

Alright,

Another in the series of images of @holly_mj… with makeup by Geeta Singh… This is one lighting setup that I was REALLY wanting to try but don’t have the gear for. Luckily enough at Studio 304 it was no problem. Basically took to giant V-Flats (read as two 9’x4′ pieces of foamcare that are taped together to make a V) and placed them on either side of me at camera, stepped back a little with a longer lens and BAM. We create the image below.
