Lois Loren – Photoshoot – 12 November 2016

Date: 12 November 2016
Location: Home Studio, Medway – www.misselisabeth.co.uk
Model: Lois Loren Rochester, Kent
Make-Up Artist (‘MUA’): Maria Bradley Rainham, Kent

Another great shoot with these two lovely ladies.  Both Lois and Maria are great to work with, they are both very patient, good company and professional.  I would definitely recommend them if you’re thinking of hiring a model or make-up artist (MUA).

The brief for this shoot was something a little bit wintery (aiming for a mono-chrome look) and then a glitzy party theme (aiming for high colour – blue).

For this shoot I decided to buy a couple of new light modifiers, a 45 degree reflector with grid and a 55cm beauty dish with grid and diffuser from Essential Photo.  I also bought some blinging jewellery from Ever Faith and some twinkly blue LED lights from Excelvan.

The most difficult part of the shoot was balancing the studio lights on the model with the LED lighting in the background, as studio lights can strip the colour out of other normal lights.  I’m not sure I was entirely successful but I should be able to do something in post to make them stand out more.

As before Lois gets a choice of photos so I will post some once that process has been completed.

The other thing this shoot reinforced to me is that although you may have planned and decided what your shoot will be, in my experience this is fluid due to the ‘on-the-day creativity’ phenomena.  If you are doing a shoot for fun and not to a strict brief, an amazing thing happens when minds come together, creativity happens and ideas start to flow and before you know it you are creating something outside of your original idea that’s organic, unpredictable, spontaneous and in some cases magical.  And I think it is this aspect that I am enjoying the most from my last few shoots.  It’s liberating.

I can’t wait to share the results with you, however, in the meantime have a great week.
