This one from Claudia (beafitmom.nl) with make-up and hair done by Ayten (La Rouge Visagie). I often use more shadows but this one was shot with a light-gray background, two gelled gridded spots in the background, and a big gridded Octa on the front-left.
Claudia’s beautifully toned body works nicely here.
This one was created with make-up and styling artist Ayten from La Rouge Visagie. The model is Rachel Wals. There is a large softbox on the right (of the camera) and a strip light on the left. The postprocessing consisted mostly of bringing up the feather brightness a bit and increasing specularity in the hair.
There is something about images where the model does not look into the camera. I tend to like it. This one was taken using a wind machine. This is Ella, and her look straight at the camera is as forceful as is her looking away, like here. I still like the variation, with the subtle blue gel highlighting the back of her head.
Another one of Ella. Admittedly the red hair was slightly enhanced.
This image was shot with a lens I just obtained; the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 ART. Love its softness and its sharpness where you focus. To her right there was a 60x80cm softbox, and a small spot with a blue gel lights up the background, giving a bit of contrast in the colors.
A picture not from a shoot this time; this was taken on me and my girlfriend’s recent holiday to Italy. We went to the south of Napels (Cilento) and drove around to various places like Amalfi, Pompeii and even crossed Italy to end up near Polignano a Mare.
There was a lot of opportunity to take pictures; this one is actually one of my favorites, since it is a nice backlight image.
Here is a picture from the shoot with Xenia the other day. We were actually at the same time walking her dog, which was pretty funny, and at times a bit cumbersome because, well, a dog needs attention. 🙂
Most of the pictures didn’t include Printie, as is the dog’s name, but this one did, and in fact I like the combination here. It’s something different from the usual pictures, so why not? Besides, yesterday was World Animal Day so it would have been appropriate, if only I had posted this one day earlier. 😉
This one is from a few days ago with Xenia. It was taken as the sun was setting, right next to a bicycle lane, so we had to make a bit of room every couple of shots. 🙂
Next to that, we were walking her dog at the same time, so it was a bit of messing around, trying to get some nice shots while juggling with all the other plates at the same time. But it was fun doing so! And a wonderfully almost non-Dutch warm evening.
