I get such a buzz from my photography when I get to try something new, and as a photographer I don’t get to photograph people very often. This is now something I am trying to change.
So I had the chance to photograph some great looking people in a great looking office in the centre of London’s financial part of the city. I was a little nevous of taking the trolley with my Lencarta Safari onboard onto the escalators of the underground. I needn’t have as it balanced nicely and people who wanted to walk down had enough room to get past me.
Some shots were lit with just one light into a white umbrella or with a honeycomb grid fitted to the head. The great thing about having a flash system that does not need mains electricity is, I can go anywhere and obtain great results….
Here Ana is lit with one light fired into a white reflective umbrella and the background is lit with a small flashgun fitted with a red gel, this just gives a touch more separation between my subject and the background, which also looks different to it’s everyday norm as a shutter…
I am so pleased I had the opportunity to have a day shooting people, here Amazine looks like he’s in a club while reading the paper… not sure that this would happen in reality… but you know it kind of seemed right at the time…
